Listen and download the words. This is a great song containing wisdom for life. Every good, kind, excellent, loving thought has its origin in the heart and mind of our Creator God and these are things we are instructed to think about and meditate on. These are things that will bend our hearts and minds and shape our destinies to seek higher wisdom. Interestingly, not knowing if Gordon Lightfoot is a Christian his song is filled with Godly wisdom.
How many pictures are in your wallet?
In everything I do or see God shows me another glimpse of His character and face. How I interpret the picture says more about me and my heart than about the mind and heart of God. If my heart is dark, confused, disillusioned, resentful then my mind will hear accusations, recriminations, and be closed to hearing messages of hope and joy and peace. I pray for God’s peace. I pray for God’s light and the ability to correctly appraise my circumstances and those about me. I want to be whole as God defines whole. I want to have eyes that see God moving, redeeming, healing and lifting us out of our prisons.
My bedroom is a place that gladdens my heart. I’m surrounded by reminders of my loved ones. Mom barely out of high school poseing with my dad for a photo taken before their first date and the next on their wedding day. Life seemed so uncomplicated in the day from the pictures on the wall but truth be told, my parents gave me a sweet, happy childhood.They taught me early that Jesus loves me, that I have a Good Shepherd, that I can go to Him with all my problems, and He would take all the dark and oddly colored threads of my life and create a beautiful masterpiece if I just trust Him
The evening shadows and warm light from the setting sun are comforting. I am so grateful for God’s kindness and His goodness. His mercies are new every morning and His faithfulness is my evening song.
