. . .And I Know He Watches Me!

There are times in one's life
when we feel as though the 'weight of the world' is upon our shoulders.

Circumstances beyond our control 
may bring about a feeling of helplessness.

In those times,
I recall the lyrics to the hymns I've learned.
Most are the from the 'good old time religion' still good enough for me.

Other times,
contemporary music, or rather contemporary artist, will see me through.
You only have to listen to Dallas Holms sing, Hold On My Child,
to understand that weeping only last for the night.

So~o~o. . .
when the storms are life are raging. . 
I hold fast to the fact that there is sunshine after the rain.

For His eye is on the sparrow
. . . and I know He watches me!

Whatever turmoil may be in your life, 
now or in the future,
I wish for you these comforting words.

Many things about tomorrow, I don't seem to understand
but I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining

Words to live by...when my Dad had his heart attack when I was 13 my Uncle said "we don't know why things happen, but they happen for a reason".
Hope things are well with you dear one.
