On Thanksgiving...

I really enjoyed this piece from TWLOHA about how for some of us Thanksgiving is a little different.

Hope you will read and realize that many people struggle with being thankful because of the brokenness they feel.

Enjoy.

House of Gold with The Secret Sisters

If I Stand




There's more that rises in the morning
Than the sun
And more that shines in the night
Than just the moon
It's more than just this fire here
That keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger
Than this room


And there's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegiance
I owe only to the giver
Of all good things


CHORUS:
So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home


There's more that dances on the prairies
Than the wind
More that pulses in the ocean
Than the tide
There's a love that is fiercer
Than the love between friends
More gentle than a mother's
When her baby's at her side


And there's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegence
I owe only to the Giver
Of all good things


CHORUS(2x)

And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

Memphis...again


While living in a small town is great, it is also fun to escape to the big city for a break from the everyday.  I love Memphis and this will be my third trip through there in as many days.  Looking forward to seeing my sister, walking by the river, and enjoying that urban feel for a few hours.
Don't worry, I'll be home by bedtime.

Going south...


Trip to Oxford, MS, today with my grandparents.  Oxford is one of my favorite towns and, although this will be a lightening fast trip, I look forward to sharing it with them.
Enjoy these last warm days!
