My Paradise and Heaven

These past few days have carried heavy news to my heart, and the hearts of those I love. When I feel helpless to find comfort or bring comfort to others, I know where to hide. I cozy up on my Heavenly Father’s lap and close my eyes and let the tears fall. Psalm 56:8 tells us that God catches our tears in a bottle. He sees them. He feels our sorrow. He hears our prayers. And there in my hiding place I beckon you to climb up on his lap. There is room for you too.

My Paradise and Heaven

Dedicated to Amanda and her family, and to mine, and to ours together, as one day we will enjoy such sweet reunion.

Is He a mere three letter word, this God I put my trust in?

Is this presence that calms my fears, a ghost of my imagination?

Have the prayers I’ve prayed each day and night sailed into some abyss?

Have the tears I’ve cried, and all my sleepless nights gone unnoticed?

Is my reflection of pure peacefulness, a mask or a mirage?

Who then has quenched my thirst and grown my courage?

Who washed away my hopeless state, and turned my eyes upward?

There is a God my heart knows well, I take Him at His word.

Upon the wind, under the sun, the earth expounds His praise.

Shall I not too be wise to share His wonder all my days?

Is He a mere three letter word, this God I put my hope in?

He is my breath, my life and death, my paradise and heaven.

Heaven Can Be Found, the lyrics

babyfinalIn Celebration of God’s gift of life!

VERSE 1: Is there a place called heaven, when darkness comes to call? Do we just believe in heaven, when everything is going well? I asked the God of my salvation, and he answered me. Heaven is a place found in a child’s face, look and you will see…..

CHORUS: [clickandtweet handle=”” hashtag=”” related=”” layout=”” position=””]Heaven can be found woven in a newborn’s hair, you’ll find it there. [/clickandtweet]Heaven can be seen deep within their trusting eyes, oh how they shine. Sweeter than a kiss from their gentle lips, and softer than their skin bare upon your breast. Well, if he can give us this, if he can give us this…. I know heaven exists. Heaven is a place found in a child’s face, think on this.

VERSE 2: Losing everything can shake us, strip our very faith to bone. Eternity seems all but made up when love is lost and you’re alone. I asked the God of my salvation to show himself to me. And in a child’s face he revealed a place, where we will one day be free.

CHORUS: Heaven can be found woven in a newborn’s hair, you’ll find it there. Heaven can be seen deep within their trusting eyes, oh how they shine. Sweeter than a kiss from their gentle lips, and softer than their skin bare upon your breast. Well, if he can give us this, if he can give us this I know heaven exists. Heaven is a place found in a child’s face, think of it.

(we had to lose a family friend back in 1994, for me to see heaven, full story posted tomorrow)
