It's Me Again Lord

                                               It's me again Lord
                                               thanking you for another day
                                               being able to get out of bed
                                               is a blessing enough to pray

                                               Lord I sometimes wonder
                                               why I deserve anything at all
                                               I stumble and fall everyday
                                               and feel so unworthy and small

                                               But yet you are always there
                                               through the good and bad
                                               wiping away every tear
                                               such a comfort when I'm sad

                                               When I lay down at night
                                                I know I can count on you
                                                to keep me safe from harm
                                                just like you always do

                                                Lord I can never forget
                                                your son on that cross
                                                the pain he suffered and endured
                                                for sinners like me that was lost

                                                The pain you must have felt
                                                as he walked up Calvary's hill
                                                is plenty enough for me
                                                to cling to a promise so real

                                                With a loving father as you
                                                 how can anyone ever deny
                                                 without you I couldn't walk
                                                 there'd be no need to try

                                                 Well I'll go for now Lord
                                                  but I won't be gone very long
                                                  I'm just a talk and a prayer away
                                                  I could never make it for long

  12. Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories.
