Winter has passed – Springtime has come!


The Winter has passed and the Springtime has come.  (paraphrased)  Song of Solomon 2:11

Let us acknowledge God. Let us press on to know God.  As surely as the sun rises, God will appear. He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain that waters the earth.”  Hosea 6:3

For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.  Isaiah 61:11

Let the Lord our God do a new thing – this Spring

Celebrate new life let God love you.

False love exposed


False love,  uses love to hurt you

True love will protect you

Draw near to the love that loves you

False love charges a price

And  uses you as a sacrifice

Run to the one who truly loves you

Someone who would die for you

One who already has

Someone whose love is blind

Who sees nothing but you

And no wrong within you

God’s love is true

Sweet Surrender (1992)


I had so many problems ‑ More than my share

My life had fallen apart ‑ That really broke my heart

It just wasn’t fair

So I stopped thinking ‑ Then started drinking

Trying to chase out the pain

But it was still there

I started taking pills ‑ Trying to warm my chills

I couldn’t pay my fare ‑ And I didn’t really care

But they were still there

I was so tired of crying ‑ That I thought of dying

Just when I came to the end ‑ God held my hand

I felt so guilty ‑ That I said forget me

Then held my head down in despair

But He was still there

I knew I had failed Him ‑ And  just couldn’t face Him

I didn’t expect Him to care ‑ But He was still there

Then I started to cry ‑ I don’t want to die

When I looked up He was there

He really cared

I cried – Father! ‑ He cried – son!

When He touched me ‑ We became one

One in Spirit ‑ My soul at peace

God had given me such sweet release

What a sweet surrender

Such a sweet surrender

God is so tender – to the sweet surrender

When I thought my life was so bare

He was still there

He is still there

Renconciliation – A Chord of Love


Draw them back to You –  with Your fragrance

Let them seek Your face –  and Your presence

May I be the fragrance of You

To draw all Your people to You

Make my life with You –  like a fragrance

Radiant light on me  – as  a cadence

That they’ll  hear and sing out to You

Like a chord of love  sung with You

Reconcile us Lord – all  together

Reconciled to You –  and forever

Like a chord of love – harmonizing

Music of the Lord – hear it rising

Like a chord of love – reconciling

2 Corinthians 5:18-20
