Lead me, O Lord, by Your gentle hand,
To quiet hills, through rolling lands.
Where hope runs free, the broken mend,
And wounded wings, the horizon span.

Those Were The Best Days Of My Life: School Days

Originally posted on:

Before the school day has begun we face the humiliation of tripping over our new school shoes and falling head-over-arse in front of EVERYONE on the school bus. “She fell over…she fell over”  the children chant. Mortified, we jump on the bus with a face resembling nothing other than a cherry tomato. If we aren’t tripping over, we’re getting our scarves caught in the door or as the bus takes off before we get to our seats, we land in the lap of big Kirsty at the back of the bus.

Reflection in the mirror, what was cloudy, dimly see,

Lines of age receding, from the toil of sin, set free,
The One whom I’ve been seeking, His gaze has captured me.

Release me from these harsh restraints, my wooden soul set free,
Free to do His bidding, sing and dance, to just be me.
What had been dry and worn, take, graft me to His Tree,
Lay claim that sweetest blessing, “Son, this day, I’ve begotten thee.”
