it moved me to tears...

This song gets me everytime!!!
Tonight at choir practice it really hit me hard,

"I surrender all"

My life is not the same
Everything has changed
What You've done for me
You've set me free
My heart is now Your home
I'll never be alone
What You've done for me
You've set me free
(Pre-Chorus)
You removed every barrier
Erased every failure
And Your mercy shelters me
(Chorus)
I surrender all
All to You I owe
My heart is Yours and Yours alone
I surrender all
Giving everything
All that I am and every hope to be

All I can say is...thank you Lord for your mercy!

be the change you want to see in the world...

BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse, and regret.

my time machine?


if only this were possible,to go back in time.
but like the old saying goes,things happen for a reason!

my prayer for myself&the rest of the world

Dear heavenly father,
My every need,
My every thought
Your love confirms security.
You confirm serenity.
Lord,your amazing.
Heal this nation
heal this world
Mend the hearts of those who think they lost
Were not alone,
we have you to guide
What is their not to understand?
Lead us to that place of peace
The hope you've promised
Thank you for saving me
Now can we save ourselves?
Everyone on earth?
That's the challenge isn't it?
Or what is?
Maybe we should all take a minute to think..
But to think on his mercy and kindness
With all my heart Lord
Take it,mold me...
I give it all up

Amen.
