January 3, 2007

Where I'm at:

Lately Keith Green has been heavily influencing my heart with his strong lyrics. Here are a few of my favorite, both silly and serious!

"Well, I pledge my wife to Heaven for the Gospel... as I told her when we wed, I'd surely rather be found dead! Then to love her more than the One who saved my soul." ~Pledge My Head to Heaven

"He is divine and you are de branch" (get it?) ~He'll Take Care of the Rest

"Just think about Moses... He must have been thinking, "Hey what's an old dude like me going to tell 'em all when I go down?" The Lord said, "Hey Mo! Don't you worry about a goin' down south..." ~He'll Take Care of the Rest

"Jesus rose from the grave and YOU, you can't even get out of bed." ~Asleep in the Light

"And you just lay back and keep soaking it in. Ohhh can't you see? It's such a sin. Because He brings people to your door and you turn them away as you smile and say, "God bless you and be at peace." and all Heaven just weeps, cause Jesus came to your door and you left him out on the streets. Open up, open up... and give yourself away."~ Asleep in the Light

"Nature confesses that she has given to the human race the tenderest of hearts, by giving us the power to weep. This is the best part of us." C.S. Lewis quoting a Roman illustration in "The Abolition of Man"

"A man who perseveres in doing just actions gets in the end a certain quality of character. Now it is that quality rather than the particular actions which we mean when we talk of 'virtue'" C.S. Lewis "Mere Christianity"

"Good fortune, witch hunters!" ~Wicked (possibly my favorite line because it's somewhat random. I'd like to incorporate some sort of this into my daily vocabulary. But what could I say, "Good fortune, BEST members"??.... hmmm, must keep thinking about that one?!)

"And God said...'When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.'" Genesis 9: 12,16

And a funny one from tonight, Mary and I were talking about dinner and eating salmon. Mary inquired about mercury posioning and asked if that came from eating salmon to which a very tired Joanna replied, "I hear you can only get it if you eat too much Albuquerque." (instead of Albacore)

ahhh.... it's been a fun but long day. I'm off to bed.
All my love

P.S. KB, I miss you!
