Pay it with Love

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
–1 Corinthians 13:1-3, 13 (NKJV)

1. If you have a child,
You know the power of love.
There’s no request too big or small
On earth or heaven above.
Refrain:

2. If God sends you a soulmate,
No mountain is too high.
You give yourself and all you have
To see that precious smile.
Refrain:

3. O Jesus paid the price
To wash away our sins.
So let us open up our hearts
And let his Spirit in.
Refrain:

It’s not enough
Unless you pay it with love.

Refrain:
‘Cause if there’s any other reason that you make the sacrifice,
And if the cost is any less than the greatest things in life,
And if you choose a different way to pay the highest price,
It’s not enough.
You gotta pay it with love.

Gotta Praise the Lord

This is the first song I’ve written since I moved almost 3 months ago. It’s been a long time and quite a journey, and I have been so blessed through it all. I am very happy with my work here, and I’ve met so many kind and generous people. I can understand why they call this part of PA “God’s Country.”

Now… Do you know what creamed chipped beef is? If not,

And it’s better over biscuits, not toast. 🙂

Gotta Praise the Lord – Lyrics

1. God delivered the Hebrews;
He protected Daniel too,
Brought three men from the fiery furnace,
And lifted us from the blues.

Refrain:
Now the only blue ’round here is navy,
And we love creamed chipped beef and gravy.
Ever blessed and don’t mean maybe,
So we gotta praise the Lord.
We gotta praise the Lord.

2. God made David a great king,
And he caused the blind to see.
He sent his son in love and peace,
And He cares for you and me.
Refrain:

3. We have all we could ask for,
Because we know the Lord,
Our comforter and deliverer;
This world can’t offer more.
Refrain:

‘Cause the only blue ’round here is navy,
And we love creamed chipped beef and gravy.
We’re ever blessed and don’t mean maybe,
And we gotta praise the Lord.
We gotta praise the Lord!

Jesus Speaks of the Father

And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?”
–Luke 2:49 (NKJV)

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.”

Unconditional Love – Lyrics

Refrain:
Unconditional love as the Father above,
Means no expectations of what you receive.
Unconditional love as a child of the One,
Means showing compassion and faith to believe.
And the Father is giving, providing and living
Unconditional love through you and me.

1. Let us love with His heart
And do our holy part.
When we reach out our hands,
Let the Father take command.
Refrain:

2. Let us love with His mind
And seek Him till we find.
When we speak any Word,
Let the Father’s voice be heard.
Refrain:

3. Let us love with His soul,
Eternal, pure and whole.
When we fill someone’s need,
Let it be the Father’s deed.

From Loving You

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

I wrote this song when I was 17, after breaking up with my first boyfriend. Years later, after a marriage and divorce and soon to re-marry, I realize the profound truth in this song. Just because a relationship ends, doesn’t mean it was a failure, or that it was all bad. Good things can come out of the very worst circumstances and the most difficult times, just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes or the beautiful lotus blossom growing in the mud.

I pray that you, too, have learned from previous relationships, and that you carry those positive things into your next one!

For spiritual support with this or anything else, send me a confidential
prayer request.

From Loving You – Lyrics

1. I loved you once and thought you were the one,
But time proved otherwise, you see.
And when we parted, I thought I was done.
And yet I came away with things.
And
Refrain:

2. From you I learned to always think of things
Before I go and make mistakes.
You taught me patience and what true love is,
And that is why I’m here to say
That
Refrain: (2x)

Oh I am grateful for our time of love.

Refrain:
With the things I learned from loving you,
I can make another’s dream come true.
With the things I learned from loving you,
I know I’ll be better off.
With the things I learned from loving you,
I can make another’s dream come true.
And so I’m grateful for our time of love.

God Bless the Internet

1. O God bless the Internet.
This world can’t live without it.
With high speed service we forget
The reason that we found it.
Refrain:

2. There’s videos and games on phones,
Our hands and eyes upon it.
We gotta call the One who’s closer
Than the electronics.
Refrain:

3. There’s tons of sharing going on,
But how much are we saying?
Relationships have come and gone
For lack of love and praying.
Refrain:

4. O God bless the Internet.
There’s nothing wrong about it.
Let’s send our love with every text
And praise Him that we found it.
Refrain: (2x)

Refrain:
We upload, we download,
And it’s easy to believe.
But let’s unplug and thank Him
For the blessings we receive.

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and female role models, mentors, and mother figures!

Each of us is someone’s baby – and we are all children of our Creator. Remember that as you enjoy this lullaby.

And new to it all,
This world is a big place to be.
Baby, you’re safe,
And softly I pray,
Let my baby sleep.

2. Baby of light,
I hold you at night,
For Jesus has sent you to me.
Baby, have faith,
Remember to pray,
Let my baby sleep.

Of laughter and tears,
The Savior is guiding your feet.
Baby, still safe
In the Spirit that prays,
Let my baby sleep.
Refrain:

Let Him, let you,
Never forget to
Let my baby sleep.

Refrain:
OOO rest in His hands,
Trust in His plans,
Cradled and wrapped in His love.
Growing in grace,
Showing His face,
Child of the Heavens above.
Jesus who knows
The heart of your soul
Gives you His comfort and peace.
So let Him, let you,
Never forget to
Let my baby sleep.

But I did for such a long long time.
And ever since you came, you’ve been the center of my days
And kept me warm on so many nights.

But in life there are no guarantees.

And you’re the hope that makes me believe.

And be better than I was to you.

Oh I am just a woman,
And that’s all that I might ever be.
But maybe I can be the world to you,
