Songs over us

This morning again as for the last week or so the songs over me have returned. This morning an old balard only a few words of it

tambourines and elephants all playing in the band
wont you take me for a magic ride du ta du
bother me tomorrow for today I'll have no sorrow
du du du du at my front door.

of late many tunes fly
one that is rather poignant is a song that has some words in it of a rather different power.

that's me in the corner
that's me in the spot light loosing my religion
I thought I heard you laugh
I think I thought I saw you smile

This new passage into 50 has taught me about really looking hard at what I believe and why. I will never let go of my faith or my friendship with Abba Pappa. My belief in the full meaning of Grace (unmerited favor ) and what Christ Jesus has and is doing.To feed the orphan and widow in the hour of need to love God with all my heart, mind and soul. To learn love better loving self as learning to better love others.

Religion to me is pre conceived notions about God. Judgments that occur that divide and separate. Of that I am loosing my religion and building a stronger relationship. Freedom in that for self, well it is in overcoming the fear of the judgments that divide. If they divide perhaps that is love not fear...loving so much as to not want to cause another to stumble in our own freedoms.

that's me in the corner
that's me in the spot light...
I think I thought I saw you smile.
that was just a dream...

Another one is a tune with a line...

No I won't back down

backing down just silences our own voice

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
