This song has been going through my mind since Saturday.
"All I Ever Have To Be"
When the weight of all my dreams Is resting heavy on my head And the thoughtful words of help and hope Have all been nicely said But I'm still hurting, wondering if I'll ever be the one I think I am - I think I am
Then you gently re-remind me That You've made me from the first And the more I try to be the best The more I get the worst And I realize the good in me is only there because of who You are Who You are...
And all I ever have to be is what You've made me Any more or less would be a step out of Your plan As you daily recreate me help me always keep in mind That I only have to do what I can find And all I ever have to be All I have to be All I ever have to be is what You've made me
Isn't it amazing how things come out of our memory banks? Noteverything in there is good, but a lot of it is worth thinking on and
I'm grateful. It's a big part of why we have tried to be careful about the things we watch or listen to.
This song is a good reminder that God has made each one of us with a purpose and that we need to follow His plan for us. Our lives may not look like someone else's life, but as long as we are following where He is leading, it's a good thing.
We influence our kids and grandkid with what we watch and listen to, and I must say, that my kids have influenced me, too! I've become a fan of some shows like Dr. Who and Sherlock, and I would never have watched them on my own.
Do you ever have a song come to mind or an event from your past and it takes you by surprise, like a "blast from the past?" I tell you, it's crazy all the song lyrics I can remember from being a kid and listening to my parents play music in the house, everything from The Beatles to Roberta Flack to John Denver.
Speaking of grandkids, our girlie likes to go to church with us on Sundays, and we love having her with us. I took this photo yesterday right after the service.
She and I like to both take our shoes off during church. This is her sandals on mine!
Have a good day friends!
