To Everything, Turn, Turn, Turn

I search for a way to sidestep my heart. It is always so involved with this world.

For instance, even now, it is aching, longing to gather all my loved ones around me, wanting to keep them all here, laughing and loving together always. There is little room for change in my dreamed of scenario. We will just freeze that special moment, linger there forever, basking in the glow of warmth and happiness.

This from a woman who once championed change. I never wanted to get too comfortable, knowing it would be too easy to want to rest there, to - how did I say it? - "...linger there forever." I once was restless, eager to move on, ready to try something new, to experience the unknown, confident that if this was good, than that would be even better. His ways were always worth discovering.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus;
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth
Will grow strangely dim
In the Light of His glory and grace.

Ah, yes. How could I forget? There is no sidestepping, only a turning. It is time again to gaze upward, to take in His eternal love, to set my affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Then, even a tired woman can be made ready to cast off, move on, and embrace the new.

And then, someday, we'll be together, forever.

I never knew you didn't have a sister...

Mrs. Sinclair-

This post has absolutely touched me!
Just today I was thinking along these lines, and The Lord laid that song on my heart, because that was the song that my mom used to sing to me!

And I was remembering the time that I was riding in the car with your family, and you were singing the song that you used to sing to your kids.

I thought it was awesome that you posted that song!

Thanks for the post!
