Jesus Our Lord is Crucified

Jesus Our Lord is Crucified O come and mourn with me awhile,  O come ye to the Savior’s side  O come, together let us mourn,  Jesus our Lord is crucified. Seven times He spoke seven words of love;  And all three hours His silence cried  For mercy on the souls of men;  Jesus our Lord […]

Be Born In Me

This has become one of my favorite Christmas songs.  Written from Mary’s perspective, it so beautifully captures the range of emotions she felt when realizing she was carrying the Son of God. One of my favorite lines is this – “I am not brave, I’ll never be- the only thing my heart can offer is […]

Standing Tall

 Listen, stay alert, stand tall in the faith, be courageous, and be strong- 1 Corinthians 16:13 It’s the little things that make me smile.  Sunflowers are one of those things.  I can’t get enough of them.  A daydreamer at heart- I could stare at them all day if I’d let myself!  I remember seeing them […]
