An Amazing God of Providence

I like the words to this song---the music may be a bit wild for some but sometimes you want to just shout your praises to the greatness of our God. Here are the words--I think they are awesome:

Be my light in this darkened room
I'm on my face and I'm calling you
I can't fathom all you've done for me
Every time it finds me on my knees
Like sunlight in the winter cold

Everything about you, it takes my breath Away...
I tried this once without you and it was my
Great mistake...Hallelujah

Questions fade when you invade
You chase all my fears away
With your love in my atmosphere
All confusion disappears
And nothing but your truth remains
Questions fade, you remain

You are color on a page of white,
Like eyes beneath black lights
Like a glowing city on the plains, you call
My name



Also there is this true story one of my Sons found in a history book---IT IS STRANGER THAN FICTION---God's Providence is sometimes pretty amazing!

In 1829, a ship called The Mermaid was four days away from her destination of Sidney, Australia, when a massive storm struck and drove the ship into a reef. All twenty-two people on board survived and were able to swim to safety.
Three days later, the Swiftsure rescued them.
Five days later, the Swiftsure sank.
Victims from both ships were rescued by the schooner Governor Ready.
Three hours later, the Governor Ready caught fire.
The Comet pulled everyone from lifeboats and brought them aboard.
Five days later, the Comet sank. (The crew went for help in the longboat, leaving the passengers floating in the water.)
Eighteen hours later, the mail boat Jupiter pulled everyone out of the ocean.
In under twelve hours, the Jupiter sank.
Everyone was rescued by the passenger vessel The City of Leeds.
Four days later, The City of Leeds docked in Sidney, Australia.
The amazing thing is: no one died


  1. What an incredible story. I don't know why the picture with the dates didn't show up. It is still on mine when I look at it. We have a store called Sprouts here and they have the best dates. They are fresh, soft, extra sweet - just yummy. Why did I change my blog site? Several reasons. I liked the clean look of the WordPress blogs and I wanted three columns. I couldn't figure out how to change mine to three columns although I know it is possible. I liked that you could have tabs for special pages also. One of the main reasons was I wanted the challenge of learning how to do it. It is a lot different from Blogger. I like the way pictures post larger too. And you can view the actual page exactly as it will look (header side bars, everything) before it is posted.

  2. I love that song too. I am thankful for Christian rock bands, they are reaching the youth of America. It has been great for my sons to have an alternative to worldy music (even though they do still listen to the wordly stuff). That story is truly amazing! What a bad day for those guys huh!

    Hugs, Sharon
