THIS STARRY NIGHT (Christmas Song Lyrics)

Elegant Christmas tree

It has all been leading up to this
This beautiful night, this starry night
The story unfolds, salvation comes
Mankind’s sin, in love, to send to flight

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

Beautiful night, a new beginning
Love permeates the earth and darkness
We didn’t comprehend our great need
Till opened eyes saw we were heartless

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

In truth, love and joy, we have this hope
None other could have ever given
Immanuel, Christ with us, He came
So one day we could be forgiven

Come hear the little babe
Come see His wonderful Name
God came down
Pure love adorned
A babe fit for His future crown

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

My Heart, It Goes Awandering

beautiful red heart background vector

I seem to have lost a little part of me
The part which hears His small, still voice
So I searched across oceans wide
In mountain depths, I have no choice

I seem to have lost a little part of me
The pool from which sweet joy, it flows
My heart, it goes awandering
Where it goes, only the Lord knows

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Where love fills me to completeness
I’ve turned my back on all that’s safe
Traded His truth for emptiness

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Where teardrops beat a path to fill
Where silence sounds so deafening
Where help seems so absent and still

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Maybe this trial has an ending
In times of impending defeat
’Tis only He, my heart mending

I seem to have found that vital part of me
That part that beats the tune of love
The only reason I found it
Letting go, it fell from above

THE SONG OF FORGIVENESS (Song Lyrics)

Heart shines background

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Doesn’t matter who said what
Doesn’t matter who did what
It happened, and now it’s time
For hurting heart wounds to shut

Tears will bring hope to the now
So let go, and you’ll be freed
May those wounds be shut and healed
They’ll no longer ache and bleed

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Don’t be frightened, or afraid
Don’t worry, you’re not alone
The hand of One who loves you
Reaches out now for His own

I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
For all the pain I caused you
If you hurt me, broke my heart
I release and forgive you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Lost Love

It’s been just over a year since dear sweet Louie Bear was taken away from our hearts. We have been blessed with a totally different fursonality (and challenging purrfriend for Meeko) …  little darling Moose, and oh! what a character he is. No hugs for you, thank you very much; but adorable and loving in his own special way.

I am reposting this … to say … if you have ever wanted to tell someone you like them, you love them, you want to hug them, forgive them, or ask them for forgiveness … do it. Life is so precious, and we do not know the number of our days.

When you look into another’s eyes
Never presume it’ll be forever
Love locks two hearts together as one
To have loved is better than never

Life can bring joy, life can bring sorrow
The rains of summer turn into tears
A winter’s snow hides deep emotion
Spring and fall leave as another nears

Take a walk down your memory lane
Step into prints of those gone before
Love, it finally has its moment
My love, be prepared for what’s in store

When days turn into weeks and more years
Everything, nothing, ever changes
Love intense, ’cause one breath will be last
You’ll awake, they’re gone, nil exchanges

MY JESUS (Song Lyrics)

the first communion holidays

My Jesus, You were wounded
That one day we might be healed
In total obedience
On the cross, our was life sealed

All was finished, when You cried
We must appropriate it
None else can do it for us
Don’t on the sideline fence sit

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

My Jesus, You bled and died
A tortured moment in time
You gave Your beautiful life
Cut down whilst in Your sweet prime

And close tears, they did mingle
With hearts broken beyond pain
Hearts that would one day be new
My heart was there in death’s stain

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

My Jesus, because of love
By Your stripes, bought us wholeness
Took our sins, and laid them bare
In death You breathed forgiveness

Who can comprehend, the pure Sacrifice once laid out before us?
Who can partake of this living gift, unless the Father draws us?

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

In Silent Times

fishing boats on calm beach

In silent times of tears I pray
And listen closely for Your guiding voice
A voice of sweetness offering hope
What else can I do, what other choice?

The need is great, despair would set in
Help thou me, my dearest Lord
To pray for those in desperate need
I feel useless, without Your sweet Word

Pour out Your mercy and love, most divine
Forgive; forgive us, those flailing with time
May Your grace, Your hand, Your blessed dear Spirit
Seek and find lost souls in this family of mine

Lighten the darkness, lift from the valley below
Silent times will then ring with glorious, sweet praise
Oh! Give God the glory, the fragrance sublime
And hope and salvation will triumphantly raise

A Love Letter

Christ on the cross
 One day soon
So very soon
I will return
And take My
Waiting people home
You may be discouraged
In pain
All by yourself
Draw hope
And find Me
I’m close by
Don’t think
I don’t care
Don’t wonder why
People say to do this
Do that and
You’ll be accepted
No, just trust Me
And as a child
Receive
Receive
Life’s here for the taking
Forgiveness of sins
And love to mend
Every heart breaking
Yes, one day soon
I will return
No one; but the Father
Knows the day or the hour
So today
Today
Bow no longer
To darkness
Let new life
Break forth
As you acknowledge
The cross
All that I died for
The life of Me drained
Drained out for you
And each cell bore a name
Yes, your name was there
I remember it clearly
Don’t ever believe
I never loved you enough
Loved you enough
Or failed to care
I want you to know
That the way
Has been paved
For you to return
To your heavenly Father
No longer separated
No longer turned away
Just loved
Accepted
Wanted
Needed
Please listen
I say this again
I love you, My child
From beginning to end

Love Jesus

ALL BEING WELL (Song Lyrics)

IMG_8105.JPG

Chorus
I’ll see you in the morning
All being well
When darkness lifts
And new light shines
Upon the day to come
Yes, I’ll see you in the morning
All being well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only in Christ Jesus
Will all be well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only in forgiveness
Will all be well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only through heaven’s Love
Will all be well

Chorus
I’ll see you in the morning
All being well
When darkness lifts
And new light shines
Upon the day to come
Yes, I’ll see you in the morning
All being well

Only in salvation
Only in His pure, free love
Only believing and receiving truth
Will you be well

Only in the Shepherd
Only as one of His sheep
Only allowing yourself to be led
Will you be well

All will be well
In the morning bright
Dear sweet loved one
May the Lord speak to you this night

He Bottles Our Tears

He Bottles Our Tears

They cost us nothing; but cost Him everything

… … …

These are gifts from our Heavenly Father

Nothing we can do; but receive them with thanksgiving and obedience

Love … Forgiveness … Joy … Peace

Freedom … Eternal life … Death of old life

Redemption … Salvation

Mercy … Grace

Hope … Compassion

Repentance … Yes, even repentance

Faith … The precious wonder of this priceless gift

Daily blessings

Trials … The heat of the furnace … The hotter, the more it hurts, the more humble we become

Ready to serve

To love even more

Yes, everything is from God

Everything

Our lives are definitely in His hands

Surrendered to Jesus?  Praise God

May your love for Him intensify each and every day

Or are you struggling intensely with internal strife?

At the crossroads and you must move forth?

Choose life

Choose Jesus

The beautiful gateway … the open door … eternal freedom … eternal love

He is calling you today

Frightened of surrender?

Surrender is not giving yourself to a life of bondage

With Christianity, surrender is freedom

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

ARE YOU SUFFERING IN ANY WAY RIGHT NOW?

May God bless all who read this and may the Truth prevail in your life

May you rest in His perfect love for you

May you feel His compassion flow in and through you

May His great mercies manifest in your life today

May your wanderings from fear, hopelessness and anguish be gone

In Jesus Name.  Amen

*      *       *       *       *       *       *

Call out to Him.

He will answer every prayer lifted up … unable to speak … don’t know what to say?

He will give you the words

Maybe you can’t hear them; but they’re there and He can

Each prayer lifted up with genuine tears

Every tear tells a story

Maybe you cannot cry anymore for your tears have flooded your life for so long

He will hear each broken heart – for every broken heart cries unseen tears within

And every broken heart releases love with that pain

He knows

He will answer

He loves you

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.’

John 14:6 KJV

OUT FLOWED LOVE AND FORGIVENESS (Song Lyrics)

heart of love

Chorus
Jesus died of a broken heart
And out flowed love and forgiveness
I never knew the depth of this
Until sweet mercy did witness
And my new heart could reminisce
Embracing love and forgiveness

Born to die, so that I may live
I wandered on my merry way
Felt confident; but He showed me
I’d placed hard stones, they led astray

And I’d read all about His love
Yes, I’m loved and I’m forgiven
Enabled to trust my belief
Only briefly, so I’d listen

One day He apprehended me
I was sad, He came alongside
Put His arm on my weary frame
Unleashing hidden tears, I cried

Chorus
Jesus died of a broken heart
And out flowed love and forgiveness
I never knew the depth of this
Until sweet mercy did witness
And my new heart could reminisce
Embracing love and forgiveness

He sent new friends and old alike
To comfort me in my distress
Dear child, your heart, it is broken
Let me heal, into My side, press

With eyes opened, I saw the truth
All that flowed out at Calvary
Within each of His dying breaths
Beat a life breath, for you, for me

Oh! You are the greatest Shepherd
This, Your lamb, follows You every day
Through fiery trials and sweet blessings
Oh! Dear Saviour, please lead the way

Chorus
Jesus died of a broken heart
And out flowed love and forgiveness
I never knew the depth of this
Until sweet mercy did witness
And my new heart could reminisce
Embracing love and forgiveness
