All You People Don't Know About Lost Causes...



I'll never be happy about having occasional bouts of insomnia, but turning the tv on @ 3:00 am and seeing MR Smith Goes to Washington on Turner Classic Movies made it not so bad. What a great movie. Go watch it if you haven't seen it. I'll buy the popcorn.

Goods

It's the immemorial feelings
I like the best: hunger, thirst,
their satisfaction; work-weariness,
earned rest; the falling again
from loneliness to love;
the green growth the mind takes
from the pastures in March;
the gayety in the stride
of a good team of Belgian mares
that seems to shudder from me
through all my ancestry.

Wendell Berry

I like this fella.

On Eagles Wings-from a choir singing at Gerald Ford's funeral that I heard on the radio.

On Eagles Wings
Written by Michael Joncas

Isaiah 40:31
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint."

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
Who abide in His shadow for life,
Say to the Lord, "My Refuge,
My Rock in Whom I trust."

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
And famine will bring you no fear;
Under His Wings your refuge,
His faithfulness your shield.

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

You need not fear the terror of the night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Though thousands fall about you,
Near you it shall not come.

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

For to His angels He's given a command,
To guard you in all of your ways,
Upon their hands they will bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

Happy Wednesday, friends.

A great movie, a great song - one of my favorites. Dad was sick yesterday and I was lazy so we watched the Grand Rapids funeral on C-span. The Gospel really came through in the funeral service. It was very moving. Mom

Yes it is a great movie, I used to own it but it was on tape and I think that the kids tore it up or I sold it at a garage sale for some stupid reason. I'll have to try and get it back on DVD.

A movie I've actually seen! :) I think I had to watch it for a history class in high school or something. Good movie though!

Anything with James Stewart is worth watching, in my opinion.
