Are you seeing enough?

Standard

This is what happens when you invite Jesus into your heart. You get the Holy Spirit, the God glasses, so to speak, who comes into your heart and suddenly you are equipped to see the Truth and see all of life through the lens of Jesus and the Father through the enabling of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says (1 Corinthians 2:14) the natural man can’t receive the things of the Spirit of God because they are foolishness to him neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned.

In the embrace of His peace nothing touches us but the confidence of His great strength.

Standard

The Prince of Peace lives in me and He breaks the power of darkness, sometimes just by His own rest and serenity. Rest is a weapon. In the embrace of His peace nothing touches us but the confidence of His great strength. He is all-consuming life, and the power of Him makes our puny heart feel like a fortress that cannot be taken.

Julie Andrews Turning 79 – something to laugh about.

Julie Andrews Turning 79 – something to laugh about.

To commemorate her birthday, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was ‘My Favorite Things’ from the legendary movie ‘Sound Of Music’. Here are the lyrics she used:

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin’,
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin’,
And we won’t mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I’ve had,
And then I don’t feel so bad.
