Shhhh....I have a secret! It's Friday!
Oh yes it is, and I think I love it.
I worked on Taxes all day yesterday....UGH! This is certainly not my favorite thing to do...Now, if I were getting money back, I would have already had the little booger in the mail.
My topic today is: Well, I don't really know what to call it. Let's just say, I don't understand how someone can love change as much as I do, but yet NOT LIKE CHANGE. I know that doesn't make sense to you, but it will when I get through....
Boy, do I ever like to change things around my house. I have stated many times how I love to move my furniture around...It makes me Happy!
I love to change colors throughout the house...comforters, pillows, curtains, wall hangings, what ever will move, I will change! (Not my husband though)
On the other hand....there are a few things I don't like changed. I know that I'm going to have some differences of opinion here, but that is OK with me...
The fact that we are all different is what makes life INTERESTING!
I was reading a book the other day, and it listed the top "MOST LOVED HYMNS"
1. "How Great Thou Art"
2. "The Old Rugged Cross"
3. "What A Friend We Have In Jesus"
4. "Be Thou My Vision"
5. "Amazing Grace"
6. "Great Is Thy Faithfulness"
7. "To God Be The Glory"
8. "Just As I Am"
9. "Blessed Assurance"
10. "Rock Of Ages"
11. "Holy, Holy, Holy"
12. "I Come To The Garden Alone"
We all know that these are beautiful Hymns ~ .....What I'm getting at here, is the fact that these Hymns are never sung anymore! Everything has CHANGED to the CONTEMPORARY style of music...(I'm not even sure I like that word!)
I do understand that change is necessary at times, and I am willing to sing a few of the Contemporary Songs on Sunday , but what has happened to singing the Old Hymns! Hymns that my grandchildren do not even know! This is SAD! Way too Sad for me....
This is just one of the Changes that doesn't connect with me.....So, I have to ask myself..."Am I a Person of Change.....Or am I Not?"
I know it's different strokes for different folks, but PLEASE.... The old Hymns are just like Antiques...
Antiques have a way of enriching our lives and we search for them because the items once were appreciated and had meaning...
This is true with the old hymns.....Every word has depth in it's meaning and they truly Honor God!
Ok...There, I have let my heart be free on this one....
By the way.... Go to You Tube...Phillips, Craig and Dean - Revelation Song Lyrics. This is a great pick me upper and I hope you enjoy it! www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsiDukXIeVY (A good Friend sent this to me. Thanks Linda)
If I feel this way, I can only imagine the hearts of the elderly folks who stood upon the foundation of these old hymns to survive the hard times in their lives!!
God's Grace is absolutely Amazing! Have you ever stopped to think about how many different choices that God allows us to make each and...
