Monday Melodies: One of Those Days

Sorry this was so late today!
If it has been 'one of those days' today, here is a little ditty
to cheer you up and a prayer that tomorrow is better!
Remember, He loves you in the middle of your mess
and no matter what, you are still blessed!

(I didn't like the official music video, so I posted this one instead,
two birds with one stone though cause this vid has the
lyrics! Sorry, I know, they used the wrong 'to',
but what can you do?)

Monday Melodies: You

You by 21:03

I just found this song and this group in the past week,
and I wanted to share this song with you!


Been up and down been almost crushed to the ground
But somehow i still come out with my crown
Sometimes my hills seem unbearable
But lord dont move my mountain i'm believin in your miracle

I've never seen the righteous forsaken
I'd never have made it with out you

My joy, my peace, my happiness. My hope, my strength, my deliverence.
Ain't no stoppin my praise my diligence. My life i've dedicated cause i made it with you. I made it with you
Nobody but you, I made it with you

I've had some smiles and some cries in my life
But you see me through them all always by my side
Sometimes the closest ones to me seem like enemies
But lord you make them my foot stool to prepare me

(i need everybody to say this)
oh oh oh ohhh. oh oh oh ohhh
(come on yall help me out)
oh oh oh ohhh. oh oh oh ohhh

Say i made it. Have i got a witness? say i made it. Anybody made it? Through the valley. Through the mountain. Through the joy

I made it. Said i made it. Is it anybody out there that know you made it? when the enemy tried to get you, you tell yo enemy, GET THEE BEHIND ME

And to the decievers, you thought you had me. Spreadin rumors all about me. I made it cause im more than a conquerer. So how you like me now?

To my killaz, you thought you had me. Plottin, schemin all around me. But im standin. Cuz there is no weapon, no weapon, formed against me, shall prosper...

Monday Melodies: Safe

Safe by Britt Nicole
You keep tryin to get inside my head,
While I keep trying to lose the words you said
Can't you see I'm hangin by a thread,
To my life what I know, yeah I'm losing control and

Oh no, my walls are gonna break
So close, its more than I can take
I'm so tired of turning and running away
When love ju--st isn't safe
(your not safe, mmm-mm)

I'm strong enough, I've always told myself
I never want to need somebody else
But I've already fallen from that hill,
So I'm droppin my guard here's your chance at my heart and

Oh no, my walls are gonna break
So close, its more than I can take
I'm so tired of turning and running away
When love ju-st isn't

Everything you want, but its everything you need
Its not always happy endings but its hap-py in betweeen
Its taken so long, so long to finally see
That You love is worth the risk

Oh no, my walls are gonna breeeaakk
Oh no, my walls are gonna break
So close, its more than I can take
So tired of turning and running away
When love ju-st isn't safe

Oh no, my walls are gonna break
So close, its more than I can take
So tired of turning and running away
When love just isn't safe

Your not safe
And that's okay

This song reminds me of the quote from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe:
“Safe?" said Mr. Beaver.
"Who said anything about safe?
 'Course he isn't safe.
But he's good.

God's love isn't always safe, but it's always worth it, and it will be good.

Kirby Everyday

Did your mommy teach you to share when you were a child?

Yeah. Mine too. :)

Today I found something I wanted to share with you!

KirbyEveryDay Weekly Videos

"A day in the life of an after school program intern, condensed to four minutes," is the description on these videos. It is a hilarious blog-type video, play by play of her day. So far she has only posted five videos, but each one is a comedy gem! I love her humour style and the randomness of these vids! Nuff said, watch it!

Here is the link to her youtube channel page!

Monday Melodies: Time In Between

Time In Between by Francesca Battistelli
You were there when your Father said
Let there be light
You obeyed when He whispered
Son, You have to leave tonight
To spend nine months in a mothers womb
Three days in a borrowed tomb

(Chorus One)
But it’s the time in between
That brings me to my knees
Knowing you came for me
And all that I can't be
I'm amazed, so amazed
And I thank You for the time in between

Don't take much for this crazy world
To rob me of my peace
And the enemy of my soul
Says You’re holding out on me
So I stand here lifting empty hands
For you to fill me up again

(Chorus Two)
But it’s the time in between
That I fall down to my knees
Waiting on what You'll bring
And the things that I can't see
I know my song’s incomplete
Still I'll sing in the time in between

So many ways
Your love has saved the day
And I'm grateful for them all

(Chorus 3)
But it’s the time in between
The middle of two thieves
That says everything
It’s the reason I believe
I'm amazed, so amazed
And I thank you for the time in between
Oh Lord, I thank you for the time in between

Yesterday we celebrated The Resurrection of our Lord,
 Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
We celebrated that He arose from the dead,
conquered sin and death,
tore the curtain and crossed the chasm
of our sins so we could have a relationship
with a Holy God.
He became our sacrifice, paid the price,
and extended His earned place in heaven
to us if we would only believe and accept it.

This song speaks an important truth.
It was the time in between that made it possible.
Anyone could die for you.
But it wouldn't do the job.
Between His miraculous birth
and dramatic death,
Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life,
becoming the Spotless Lamb
that was our final sacrifice.

He lived a victorious, holy life
for us.
HIS LIFE was the important part.
His resurrection speaks that death and sin
cannot snuff out a victorious, holy life.
He carried the victory and authority of His life
to the grave, and that is how He conquered it.

The time in between, means everything.

For us, the time in between our birth and death
determines where we spend eternity.

How we handle HIS time in between,
makes the difference.
It matters.

He spent His in between time for you,
how are you spending yours?

Monday Melodies: Who Put the Bomp?

Happy Monday all!
Here is a good oldie to get things started off for Monday Melodies.
Barry Mann singing Who Put the Bomp?
If you are having 'one of those Mondays', have a listen!
I don't think anyone could still be down after hearing this crooner,
especially his little speech at the very end! Makes me laugh every time!

For you Pandora listeners, you can find more songs like
this by going to the Doo-Wop Radio channel.

Scorpions, Snakes and Horny Toads

I'm pretty darn proud of myself this week y'all!

Some groundwork, let me explain somethings. If you remember, I live in Texas and spring lasts about two weeks, meaning summer is in full swing here! Oh yeah baby, temps up in the 90's already! It is crazy stuff.

Having said that, with summer also come the various creepy crawly specimens of this climate, namely scorpions, snakes, and horny toads (oh my!) among other things. (The tarantulas don't show up much until July, so we don't have to worry about them for now.)

And, wouldn't you know it, I got to meet all three of these natives this week.

While digging up a flower bed for Mrs. P, I came across Senior Scorpion lurking in the brick pile-- there may be some who mourn his passing, but I'm pretty darn proud of myself for disposing of him with nothing more than a stick!

Encounter #2, while my brother and I were out cruising around in one of our new toys (a post on that later) I spotted a baby horny toad going across our path. We were able to safely capture him and bring him back for the rest of the family to see.

I made up my mind then and there to touch him, and before it was all said and done I was holding him, petting his little spiky head and, in truth, became quite attached to the little fella'. I felt a twinge of a 'free willy moment' when we took him back and released him where we found him.

Horny Toads look like a cross between a lizard, toad and small dragon.
Surprisingly, all the spikes you see weren't sharp, they were pretty
flexible, except for the head horns. This is a baby.

If you rub their tummies, they calm down and even fall asleep!
This one was so calm, you only had to rub his head.

Encounter #3 happened just this morning. We had a Sunday morning visitor, Sir Hog Nose Snake. They are a non-venomous snake, but look rather impressive and intimidating because they flare like a cobra and hiss rather loudly. I was pretty proud of the fact I was able to stand right next to the bucket he was in, standing there watching in, can you believe it, actual amazement as his entire body shrunk then expanded while he inhaled air to produce his menacing hiss. It may sound gross to you, but in all honesty, I was a little transfixed watching it, thinking how God's creation is amazing.

Wow, God does work miracles. I wouldn't have gotten within 10 feet of those creatures before, and certainly never would have looked upon a snake with anything but murderous thoughts!

Have you done anything recently you are proud of?
