THEN SINGS MY SOUL: WONDERFUL, MERCIFUL SAVIOR

~ ~ ~

Wonderful, Merciful Savior
Sung by Selah

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb
Could rescue the souls of men
Oh you rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost the way
Oh, we’ve hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we’re falling before Your throne

FRIDAY FUNNIES: TWO OLD MEN

Milt and Sam, two elderly friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels, and discuss world problems.

One day Milt didn’t show up..  Sam didn’t think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something.  But after Milt hadn’t shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried.  However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Sam didn’t know exactly where Milt lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.

A month passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Milt, but one day, Sam approached the park and — lo and behold! – there sat Milt!   Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so.  Then he said, ‘For crying out loud Milt, what in the world happened to you?’

Milt replied, ‘I’ve been in jail.’

‘Jail?’ cried  Sam.  ‘What in the world for?’

‘Well,’ Milt  said, ‘You know Alexis, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?’

‘Yeah,’ said Sam, ‘I remember her.  What about her?’

‘Well, one day she filed rape charges against me, and at 89 years old, I  was so proud that when I got into court, I pled ‘guilty.’

‘The damn judge gave me 30 days for perjury.’

All My Tears
Sung by Selah

When I die don’t cry for me
In my father’s arms I’ll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I’ll be whole

Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of jesus face
And I will not be ashamed
For my saviour knows my name

It don’t matter where you bury me
I’ll be home and I’ll be free
It don’t matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches light
Come and eat from Heavens store
Come and drink, and thirst no more

So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to Him
Who will raise the dead again

It don’t matter, where you bury me
I’ll be home and I’ll be free
It don’t matter, where I lay
All my tears be washed away

It don’t matter, they’re washed away
It don’t matter, they’re washed away
It don’t matter, they’re washed away

Yeah, yeah, yeah
It don’t matter where you bury me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
They’re washed away
They’re washed away

FRIDAY FUNNIES: THIMBLES AND HUSBANDS

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, “My dear child, why are you crying?” The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, “No.”

The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a golden thimble studded with rubies. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, “No.”

The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, “Yes.”

The Lord was pleased with the woman’s honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, “Why are you crying?” “Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!”

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney. “Is this your husband?” the Lord asked. “Yes,” cried the seamstress.

The Lord was furious. “You lied! That is an untruth!”

The seamstress replied, “Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said ‘no’ to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said ‘no’ to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said ‘yes,’ you would have given me all three. Lord, I’m not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT’S why I said ‘yes’ to George Clooney.

And so the Lord let her keep him.

The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it’s for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others.

THEN SINGS MY SOUL: DREAM ON

Dream On
Sung by Larnelle Harris

When Joseph was a little boy
He was driven by his dreams
God spoke to him
Told him He had chosen him
When others didn’t understand
Joseph still believed
And trusted Him
Trusted and was willing to

Dream on
When the world just didn’t believe
God had promised never to leave him alone
Dream on
Follow hope wherever it leads
For in the seed of dreams
There’s promise of the dawn
Dare to listen for the music
Keep on following the star
Morning can’t be far dream on

Now there’s no valley deep enough
That He can’t lead you through
He’ll walk with you
Walk the precious roads with you
No mountain ever rose so high
That you can’t climb with Him
And then stand up tall
Stand and look down on it all

Dream on
When the world just doesn’t believe
God had promised never to leave you alone
Dream on
Follow hope wherever it leads
For in the seed of dreams
There’s promise of the dawn
Dare to listen for the music
Keep on following the star
Morning can’t be far
Dare to listen for the music
Keep on following the star
Morning can’t be far
Dream on
Dream on

HOW TO INSTALL A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM

1. Go to a secondhand store and buy a pair of men’s
used size 14-16 work boots.

2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy
of Guns & Ammo Magazine.

3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and
magazines.

4. Leave a note on your door that reads:

Bubba,

Big’un, Duke, Slim, & Me went for more ammo and beer.

Back in an hour. Don’t mess with the pit bulls – they attacked the mailman this morning and messed him up bad. I don’t think Killer took part, but it was hard to tell from all the blood.

Anyway, I locked all four of ’em in the house.. Better wait outside.
