Little Drops

Sometimes I feel so small. Like nothing we could ever do could make any difference. Like we’re just a tiny little drop trying to change the color of the ocean. And even if we make the biggest splash possible for a little drop, not much actually changes. But my heart was lifted today. We met a bunch of other little drops the same color as us, all marching along valiantly. We’re not alone. And even if we only change the color of a handful of drops, those drops will go out and keep up the fight, even after the original … Continue reading Little Drops

Good Enough

I collapsed on the grey cold earth and cried, “I’m not good enough! I’m not good enough!” And quietly He said, “But I am.”  I want to be perfect. I want to be everything people need me to be. But I’m not strong enough. I’m not smart enough. I’m not caring enough. But that’s why we all still need God. We really aren’t good enough. Not by perfection’s standards. But God doesn’t demand perfection. He just wants our devotion.  When He has that, He can take what we’ve given Him and do what needs done. He gives us all we … Continue reading Good Enough

Return (“Nocturne” (by Celtic Women) Parody)

I LOVE the mystery and heavenly quality of this song. It sounds like an angel’s song. But the real words are a little nonsensical and fluffy. So here’s my parody. I really want to sing this song, but my voice isn’t quite strong enough to do it justice. One day… Now let the grey Just slip and fade so the light it may wash over you Once young, you grew in silent truth and it embraces your heart and your soul don’t turn you may cry even sigh you will even wonder why He’ll always see always be One you loved … Continue reading Return (“Nocturne” (by Celtic Women) Parody)

When I’m Gone (Heaven Parody)

I love this song! But I also like putting my own words to songs, so they have more meaning for me. Life is easier with others. When someone falls down, the other can pick him up. God made other people for a reason. Our journey down the narrow road becomes a lot easier when we have people around us to smack us when we’re being dumb. I’ve got my ticket for the long way ’round that road, the narrowest of ways And I sure would like some sweet company Leavin’ tomorrow, won’t you come? [2x] When I’m gone, when I’m gone … Continue reading When I’m Gone (Heaven Parody)

Fear

In the darkest night rain is beating down She huddles down afraid to move Come on out, my angel, and face the rain the unknown is not the ending fairies wander on misty evenings and elves slumber under your bed Light shines brightest in the dark life comes after death have no fear of those who kill the heart but cannot kill the soul. Come with me, and dance in the rain The unknown is not the ending The Maker of the sun also made the moon And the darkness to rest our spirit. Continue reading Fear
