So I had something else planned for today…had even written down a couple of chords at lunch!
BUT…”The great lightening storm of spring 2014″ intervened.
Here’s what I mean.
We were at a softball game tonight (third game of the night). The clouds were amazing…and the lightening started. It was impressive (at least I thought so), but a couple of the kiddos weren’t impressed. They were quite scared! I talked to one about how God was taking care of her and even when she was scared she could trust that Jesus would watch over her. I kind of wished there was a song to sing to take her mind off of the scary display. So…I wrote one!
When I lay down and when I’m awake, I know you’re there I just have to take
Your hand in mine, You’re with me all the time
When I ride my bike or when I play ball, I know you have me through it all
I like knowing you, and that will always be true
Surely goodness and love will follow me, all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever and ever!
Verse 3: (Quite possibly my favorite!)
When I go to school and when I’m at home, I gotta try hard not to moan and groan!
Because you’re there with me, it’s as easy as 2+3
It’s a promise from You to me, and I’ll believe in you faithfully
All the days of my life (x4)
