CHRISTMAS EVE UFO




    I woke up at 4:30 in the morning with the sudden urge to write a Haiku poem... this is what came out. I call it, "Christmas Eve UFO."


 Strange lights in the sky 
hovering in the darkness;
star of Bethlehem?

SHARING AN INTERESTING VIDEO ON THE BLOG TODAY




    "The three great verities of Spirit, omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience,—Spirit possessing all power, filling all space, constituting all Science,—contradict forever the belief that matter can be actual." -Mary Baker Eddy-

LIVING FOR YOU




    Mastedon Was a Christian rock band in the 1980s, fronted by singer John Elefante, who at one time sang for the progressive rock band Kansas. I was listening to one of Mastedon's songs this morning entitled, living for you. The lyrics just struck me in a new way, and I wanted to share them on the blog. How many times, do we as human beings, strive to find ultimate happiness and peace in the material things of this world. But in the end, they always fall flat and never really bring us lasting fulfillment. Only a connection with God can truly bring us what we ultimately desire. I'm sure with a little reflection, we will all find ourselves somewhere in the words below. Peace.


LIVING FOR YOU - MASTEDON


    The way things appear seems so sincere
    But it's not enough
    We make all the right moves, we say all the right things
    But it's not enough



We can have all of the aces in the palm of our hands
But it's just not enough, no
And the wisdom of man we think we understand
Is not enough, no
I've made up my mind
To live by Your design and follow You, in my heart I can't take another day away from You
You've been there with me all of the time

I'm living for You
How did I think that I could do it on my own
I'm living for You
Now I know that I will never be alone

Doesn't matter what we say, doesn't matter what we do
It's not enough
I could try to obtain worldly gain
It's not enough, no
All the works I have done, the battles I've won
It's not enough
I could save all my money, but I can't save myself
It's never enough, no
You only know how much I needed You to rescue me
Now my life belongs to You
For all the times You've seen me through
You've been here for me all of the time

I'm living for You
Why did I think that I could do it on my own
I'm living for You
Now that I'm with You I will never be alone
I'm living for You
I must be weak so I can be strong
I'm living for You
No way I can do it on my own

I could only hang on for so long
Then I realized my life was all wrong
Only by Grace can a man be made new
I've made my Choice and I'm living for You

I'm living for You
How did I think that I could do it on my own
I'm living for You
Now I know that I will never be alone
Living for You
I must be weak so I can be strong
I'm living for You
I'm living for You

I'm living for You
Oh, I'm living, oh, I'm living for You, oh
I'm living for You
And I'm living, and I'm living for You
