Song Time - Oh My Soul

This is kinda a four part song. It goes from part 1 to part 4 and then back to part 1 again.  The main theme is commanding our soul to worship the Lord in any and all circumstances (but especially in the bad times).  I was looking for a reference and the closest thing I could find was Psalm 103:1 Praise the Lord my soul, all my inmost being, praise his holy name (NIV) 

I think this is the final product, but we'll see.  Thanks for stopping by. - Jared

Oh my soul
Oh my soul
Oh my soul
Praise the Lord

Holy, Holy, Holy
Sing my soul

Holy is the Lord
Holy is the Lord

Let everything within me
respond to all my eyes see
through the veil of faith and the living Word
Holy Spirit come let me see the hope
That I have in You
You alone are worthy to be praised
Hallelujah Hallelujah

Dear girls,

You both are growing up so quickly.

I remember the day that your mom gave birth to you.

You changed our lives forever.  You changed us forever for the better.  You are miracles.  We love you.

The other night, I was thinking about that...
and thinking about how quickly you both are growing up.  Not too long ago you were just little crawling babies and now you both are running around, jumping, climbing, and playing...singing songs, making funny faces, and acting so silly! You both are such big girls.

I just wanted to write this down, so I don't forget.

Soon, there will be boys.  (Not too soon, but it'll be sooner than I can imagine.)
Boys who you think might be funnier than your dad.
You might think they are more handsome than me.
Like better music than me.
You might even think they understand you better than me.
And there will be lots of them.  Trust me. 
But I promise you this.

There is only one...
who will love you more than me.

You might not trust me when I say that "this" boy or "that" boy isn't the one for you.  But believe me when I say that I want only the best for you.  I know he is out there.

And one day...
On your wedding day...
your mother and I will give you to him.

But until that day comes, through all the arguments we will undoubtedly have, know that I love you.
Help me to see what you are seeing...
Remind me that I don't know it all...
and I'll do the same for you.

Love you, my babies.

Song Time - Revived (3/9/12)

Changed up the song a bit.  I like it a little better than the other version.  Hope you do as well.


breathe in me
Your breath of life
breathe in me
Your breath of life

And I am revived, filled with Your life
Consumed by the power of Your great love
Your mercy Your grace
My redemption from shame
My sin's washed away and I am made new
In You
In You

the deaf will hear
the blind will see
the lame will rise up
the captive will be free

And we are revived, filled with Your life
Consumed by the power of Your great love
Your mercy Your grace
Our redemption from shame
Our sin's washed away and we are made new
In You
In You
