I can not believe it is 127 days until Christmas Day! It is passing so quickly! I am not even ready to start thinking about it! And it is only 72 days until Halloween! My dad's birthday is that day as well! Life is quickly passing. I want to enjoy the ride! Do we? Really? Think about it! We work, work, work, worry, worry, worry. Is there anything we can do about certain things? I need to take each day as it comes and not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow may never happen. It might, but if I trust in the One above, then why should I worry?

When I moved out on my own in 1978, my room mate was named Deborah. She was from New York, she had performed with a Christian music group whose name escapes me, but I digress. Deborah had some contemporary Christian music albums, I had a stereo, this song is beautiful. I am posting the words here, and I will post the song on facebook shortly. This song says a lot. A lot of people I know don't care for this type of music, but I find it comforting in some ways. Here are the lyrics:

Mansion Builder
by Second Chapter of Acts
I've been told that there are those
Who will learn how to fly
And I've been told that there are those
Who will never die
And I've been told that there are stars
That will never lose their shine
And that there is a Morning Star
Who knows my mind

So why should I worry?
Why should I fret?
'Cause I've got a Mansion Builder
Who ain't through with me yet

And I've been told that there's a
Crystal lake in the sky
And every tear from my eyes
Is saved when I cry
And I've been told there'll come a time
When the sun will cease to shine
And that there is a Morning Star
Who knows my mind


Deborah had a lot of albums, and I got used to a lot of the songs. My first introduction to Amy Grant was through Deb. I don't like some of Amy's songs, but some I do. She is very talented and does not really get the credit she deserves.

If you would like to hear more songs by the above group, you can find them on You Tube.

King James Version (KJV) This is a partial post of the actual second chapter of the book of Acts in the Holy Bible. I just read it before I posted it, and you might want to look it up! Verse 20 scared the life out of me so to speak 41 years ago and I found my Lord on my knees in a little place called Stockholm on a Saturday night a long time ago. I had no idea where that was in the Bible until tonight. Everything happens for a reason!

Acts 2

1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

12And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

13Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

14But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

I know this is a long post tonight but I had a lot to say with a couple of different ways to say it! I may be poor, but I can pay attention!

I love y'all!

To be continued.............
