The world is covered by our trails...



The world is covered by our trails
Scars we cover up with paint
Watch them preach in sour lies
I would rather see this world through the eyes of a child
Through the eyes of a child

Darker times will come and go
Times you need to see her smile
And mothers hands are warm and mild
I would rather feel this world through the skin of a child
Through the skin of a child

When a human strokes your skin
That is when you let them in
Let them in before they go
I would rather feel alive with a childlike soul
With a childlike soul

Music Muse: Aurora sings "Warrior"

I'm reminded of Zephaniah 3:17:
"The Lord your God is in your midst:
 A Warrior who saves!
 He will renew you in His love.
 He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy!"

Right Wing rant has a way of unsettling sheep.

Christian re-constructionist Kevin Swanson says, "America needs time to repent."
 I cringe at the unorthodox notion that a nation's repentance is even possible!
Why do the scribes and Pharisees come to mind!?
Jesus died and rose from the dead not for the purpose of establishing a Christian political nation on earth, but to redeem His people for heavenly bliss.
Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life." John 5:24

Zoanna, Barb and me 9/29/14


Zoanna and I met online when we both had a penchant for blogging. She lived in Kansas for awhile and comes back to visit when she can. She stays with her childhood friend, Barb. I am blessed by her friendship and am so grateful to get to know Barb also! I'm thankful for their visit and our fellowship! Thanks and love to Zoanna and Barb!

Birthday Buzz

Lily rhymes with silly, no kidding it’s for real
She fits her name, her name fits her
She has that fun appeal
It’s true that she’s a youngster who age has barely touched
She has another birthday soon
We love her Oh So Much!

I thought I would learn

I thought I'd learn the names of and be able to identify each skateboard trick at one time. "Flatland and Flip tricks, Slides and Grinds, Aerials and Grab tricks, Lip tricks, Inverts and Hand plants, Freestyle tricks and Old school tricks" ... Hundreds of tricks and ever new ones being invented! Who could keep up?! Some do more than keep up! Jason Parks rolls out more beautiful and cool tricks in this video:

He settles fatal tension in His limitless love.


Seems like the tension running through the chords of this song, also runs through Faith.
Faith in the mysterious, unseen, Creator, Savior God
Who settles fatal tension in His limitless love.
"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins." 1 John 4:10


"This Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death.
“But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.Acts 2:23 ,24
"And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross." Philippians 2:8
"...and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:8,9
