Friends in Time

Each Day I find, miracles in my life, gifts so great they could only be yours

Friends in time, changes kind, strength from your loving hand

I’m on my way, bearing the new man.

Lord, Here’s my life, heal my heart, heal my soul.

Lord, Here’s my life, as I seek you, make me whole,

Here’s my life, Oh Lord, make me whole.

This is my friend that I met while I was at school for Aromatherapy. God brought us together through our love of holistic health! Her husband and her were with in three hours of our home and we were able to to meet up half way and spend an evening together! I really thought the chances of ever seeing her again were slim to none!

It brought to mind the words of the song that I wrote many years before. Friends in time. I have been so blessed to know so many incredible people, so diverse, so loving, so kind, strong, opinionated, and courageous……always in my heart, even if we do not get to see each other for years.

We all need each other don’t we? And all of my friends make up parts of who I am. I have learned from them all, even (and probably especially) the ones who may have parted my company. Iron sharpens iron and love never truly fades away.

It was actually surreal that I could hold her and see her and talk- which both of us couples did for hours! Listening to each other’s journeys over the last few years and we have both been on some unexpected, adventurous journeys!! Growing in faith and trust, and looking to the future with expectation. I re count it today, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to see each other. ❤

 

 

 

A Song in My Heart<3

 

You don’t have to look very far to see brokenness in our world. We have broken relationships, health, finances, systems, the list never ends. It can be hard to find a song to sing sometimes, unless that song is one of brokenness and pain!!

My brother recently said this to me;

He said it after he heard me sing a song the I wrote from my heart, it spoke to him. He was glad and able to see I had a song to sing, because he understands the journey I’ve been on. The song that I wrote speaks of the brokenness that I’ve experienced, but it also speaks of Hope.

The Hope I find is the only Hope I think is true. It is not in what I earn, or my status, or the lottery, or even my health….it is in God. He is my hope and I want to offer you that hope to you. I believe that 2000 ish years ago, God sent His son in the form of human baby, and celebrate that at Christmas. I believe He lived as a man for 33 years, even though He was fully God at the same time. I believe that He died, and was buried and was raised again by the power of the Holy Spirit after 3 days, just like He said He would. I believe He was taken up into heaven and is sitting at the right hand of His Father until He comes again to set up His perfect kingdom on earth.His name is Jesus. ( For the whole story read the Gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke or John in The Bible.)

My hope is in that. No matter what goes on in this broken world, or my broken life, He is what I look to and for. God loves me, forgives me, accepts me, and I am pleasing to Him and that puts a song in my heart! I believe your song is hope, and I sing that over you today whether you can sing  along with me or you have forgotten it’s words<3
