Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Skies and a prayer request

A Sunrise

A Sunset

๐ŸŽถ    ๐ŸŽถ    ๐ŸŽถ

I've posted this hymn before but it is one of my favorites and we sang it at church this morning so thought I'd post it again.

The Old Fashioned Way
Civilla D. Martin

1. They call me old-fashioned because I believe
That the Bible is God’s holy Word,
That Jesus, who lived among men long ago,
Is divine, and the Christ of God.

My sin was old-fashioned,
My guilt was old-fashioned,
God’s love was old-fashioned, I know;
And the way I was saved was the old-fashioned way,
Thro' the blood that makes whiter than snow.

2. Old-fashioned, because I believe and accept
Only what has been spoken from heav’n;
Old-fashioned because at the cross I was saved,
At the cross had my sins forgiv’n.

3. Old-fashioned, because I am bound to do right,
To walk in the straight narrow way;
Because I have given my whole life to God,
Old-fashioned, because I pray.

4. Old-fashioned, because I am looking above
To Jesus, my glorified Lord;
Because I believe He is coming again,
Fulfilling His holy Word.

A Blessed Sunday to all.
Jesus Loves You❤️
Prayer Request ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
I've written about my good friend Bettye once in a while.
She has had a stroke and I ask you to please pray for her. 
It would mean so much to me and her.  
Thank You. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
