THEN SINGS MY SOUL: PEACE WHEN I LEAVE IT IN YOUR HANDS

 

PEACE WHEN I LEAVE IT IN YOUR HANDS
sung by Legacy Five

Verse 1
Time and time again I brought my burdens
I prayed and prayed that I could lay them down
But walked away still bearing on my shoulders
A heaviness and heartache You never meant for me to carry ’round

Chorus
But there’s peace when I leave it in Your hands
Sweet peace when I leave it in Your hands
Just leave it there and never pick it up again
There’s peace when I leave it in Your hands

Verse 2
I wouldn’t say I’ve gained a lot of wisdom
Oh, but I have learned this much along the way
Lord, that You are always there to bear my burdens
At first I might not feel it but if I learn to trust You, come what may, I’ll find…

Chorus

Do You Ever Wonder Why?

*~Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety-one?

*~If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea…does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

*~Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren’t they just stale bread to begin with?

*~If people from Poland are called Poles, then why aren’t people from Holland called Holes?

*~If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

*~Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a race car is not called a racist?

*~If it’s true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?

*~If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn’t it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

*~If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP? ?

*~Do Lipton Tea employees take “coffee breaks?”

*~What hair color do they put on the driver’s  licenses of bald men?

*~I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use. Toothpicks?

*~Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don’t they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail?

*~Is it true that you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive?

*~If a cow laughed, would milk come out of her nose?

*~Whatever happened to Preparations A through G?

*~As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice:  When you put the two words “The” and “IRS” together, it spells “THEIRS”?

Hope everyone has a great Friday!!

CRACKED POTS

Cracked Pot

A water bearer in China had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the House, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of it’s own imperfection. And miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. I have been able to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.

The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw. So I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house?”

Moral: Each of us has our own unique flaws. We’re all cracked pots. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You’ve just got to take each person for what they are, and look for the good in them. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape. Remember to appreciate all the different people in your life.

Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety-one?

*
If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea…
does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?
*

Why do croutons come in airtight packages?
Aren’t they just stale bread to begin with?
*

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?
*

If it’s true that we are here to help others,
then what exactly are the others here for?
*

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked,
then doesn’t it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?
*

If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP? ?
*

Do Lipton Tea employees take “coffee breaks?”
*

What hair color do they put on the driver’s licenses of bald men?
*

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don’t they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail? Now I think this is a good idea!!!!

Is it true that you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive?
*

If a cow laughed, would milk come out of her nose?

Whatever happened to Preparations A through G?

As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice: When you put the two words “The” and “IRS” together, it spells
“THEIRS”?
