Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

A walk and a new hymn

I walked  over to and around the lake this morning.  I had to be home no later than 8:00 so just walked around the lower path of the lake.  I went through the work area since it was early Sunday morning and knew the workers wouldn't be there.  Wanted to see what progress they had made.
I took these four pictures as I passed by.
A bit muddy through here.

They made a little drainage pond.

More mud and a torn up path from the heavy equipment.

Farther along where they are just about done.
It was 39 degrees, cloudy but no wind.  There were quite a lot of people out for an early Sunday morning.
I walked a little less than usual again this morning because of the time.
5.2 miles today.
We sang this song at church this morning.  I can't sing but love to sing anyway.  : )
This hymn is a new one for me.
Words and music by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Speak, O Lord

Speak, O Lord, as we come to You 
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.

Teach us, Lord full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes,
In the radiance of Your purity.
 Cause our faith to rise;
cause our eyes to see Your majestic 
love and authority.
Words of power that can never fail.
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us.
Truths un-changed from the dawn of time.
That will echo down thro' eternity.
And by grace we'll stand on your promises.
And by faith we'll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
and the earth is filled with Your glory.
I wish you a blessed Sunday.
Happyone : )


  1. I enjoy "going on your walks with you.

  2. Your walk this morning sounds brisk. I have been curious about the work that has been ongoing. Thanks for showing their progress. Is this a new song or an old hymn of the church? Either way, it's new to me.

  3. Singing is such a joy especially with such meaningful words as your new hymn.
