He still owns the miracle in the making of a life   (Ps 139 / Gen 1:27 / Job 31:15)

And He still owns the last word on what’s wrong and what is right   (Proverbs 16:2)

These things God made

They belong to Him…amen!

These things you can’t take away, cause

They belong to him…amen!   (Ps 24:1)

 

God still owns the heavens and the message in the stars   (Gen 1:14)

He still owns the unseen reigns that can turn a leader’s heart   (Prov 21:1)

He still owns all the wealth in the silver and the gold (Haggai 2:8)

He still owns the power can’t be bought, can’t be sold (Acts 8:18-20/Matt 6:13)

Oh…Oh…Amen!

Oh…Oh…Amen!

 

God still owns the music and the Spirit in the song (Ps 40:3)

He still owns the blueprint for the building of a home   (Matt. 19/ Mal 2:15)

He still owns the wine and bread and the story they can tell (Luke 22:19-20)

He still owns the only hope you’ll never feel the fires of hell   (Acts 4:12)

An Important Reminder to Hubbies Who Hunt!

Hey guys…hunting season is now open across the nation and its not only time to for us to enjoy the “fair chase” its also time to get an important reminder that deer is only one way to spell the word. I hope you won’t forget about your dear during this hunting season.

I don’t suggest that you stop doing what you like to do in order to not make your wife a “deer widow” from now until January. Instead, I want to help you do the hunting thing right. I can assist you in doing it in a way that will not only help her appreciate your passion for the outdoors but she just might actually encourage you to get out there and enjoy it. All it requires is to do a little reading. To find out how I can help, watch the video below….and may your season be safe and successful!

Sweet Mary-Queen of Smiles

Mary-Queens of Smiles

Mary-Queens of Smiles

 

This song was written at the request of the staff at Harvest House Publishers  (publisher of our books) located in Eugene, Oregon. Their intent was to honor one of the most delightful individuals on the planet who has been a long time member of the Harvest House team.

Her name is Mary and according to Bob Hawkins, president of the company, she is known for being a master at delivering some very interesting and humorous twists of words and familiar quips.

Bob sent some of his favorite “Maryisms” and using his list, the lyric was created. I had a great time putting this lyrical puzzle together and wanted to let our friends hear it.  The recording was sent to Harvest House and was played at a party held in Mary’s honor. Enjoy the colorful Maryisms” shown in the lyric below.

 

SWEET MARY-THE QUEEN OF SMILES

 

I WAS HAVING A REAL BAD DAY ONE DAY

BUT LET ME TELL YOU HOW IT CHANGED

I WENT TO SEE THE QUEEN OF SMILES

SWEET MARY IS HER NAME

AND BY THE TIME WE SAID GOODBYE

SHE HAD ME TALKING ON A CLOUD

BECAUSE OF WHAT SWEET MARY SAID TO ME

LIFE IS SO MUCH BETTER NOW

 

SHE SAID I WON’T DENY THE TRUTH OF IT

I’LL JUMP RIGHT TO THE CHASE

THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU’LL GET CAUGHT

BETWEEN A ROCK AND A FIREPLACE

BUT WHEN ITS RAINING ON YOUR THUNDER

AND LIFE IS CHOMPING DOWN YOUR NECK

THAT’S WHEN YOU’LL SEE THE LIGHT GO OFF

SOMEWHERE IN YOUR HEAD

 

CHO…

THERE’S NO WORRY FOR THE RESTLESS

SHE SAID, LET ME STIPLIFY

WHEN THE SHOE GOES ROUND THE OTHER WAY

YOU WON’T HAVE TO WONDER WHY

AND WHEN YOU HEAR THE HOOVES OF HORSES

BUT YOU JUST CAN’T SEE THE COWS

…..I’M NOT REAL SURE JUST WHAT THAT MEANS

BUT I FEEL BETTER SOMEHOW

 

THEN SHE LOOKED RIGHT STRAIGHT INTO MY EYES

AND SHE SAID AS WE HAD LUNCH

BEATING YOUR HEAD AGAINST A DEAD HORSE

WILL GET YOUR SHACKLES IN A BUNCH

AND AS SHE SIPPED HER EPHENDORPHENS

SHE SAID, MY CHILD I THINK YOU GOT IT

A DOLLAR IN THE HAND IS BETTER THAN

TWO BIRDS IN THE POCKET

 

CHO….

THERE’S NO WORRY FOR THE RESTLESS

SHE SAID…LET ME STIPLIFY

IF YOU HAVE TO HIT THE DOOR RUNNIN’

JUST PRAY IT OPENS WIDE

AND WHEN YOU HEAR THE HOOVES OF HORSES

BUT YOU JUST CAN’T SEE THE COWS…

….WELL, I’M STILL NOT SURE JUST WHAT THAT MEANS

BUT I FEEL BETTER  SOMEHOW

I JUST FEEL BETTER WHEN SWEET MARY IS AROUND
