Faith and Family

I don’t normally post on a Sunday but this morning we sang a song in church that I absolutely love.  The name of that song is  “By Faith”.

I just want to share it here so you can also enjoy it. The words make me so grateful to have a background of parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents who were faith based and not afraid to teach it. It is also a great blessing to have a church family.

As a kid I used to be slightly embarrassed by one of my Grandma’s outspoken ways of dealing with people who were swearing.  She had no qualms about stepping up and asking them to not use “her Lord’s” name in that way.  Looking back, I can see she was a woman to be admired and emulated. She was not ashamed of her belief. I would love to say I am as fearless but I know I am not. I am working on that.

May you be blessed this Sunday and through the coming week.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
(traditional gaelic blessing)
