Well I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
All of creation testifies
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives

Who qualifies another as having the right to share the awesome message of love God has put on their heart? Is it friends, family, co-workers or church members? Who says you can’t speak to God’s grace in your life because you were a murderer, sex offender, thief, alcoholic or drug addict in a previous life? Continue reading We are all qualified

My Redeemer Lives!

“Redeemer”

Who taught the sun
Where to stand in the morning
And who taught the ocean
You can only come this far
And who showed the moon
Where to hide till evening
Whose words alone can
Catch a falling star

Well I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
All of creation testifies
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives
Yeah

The very same God
That spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary
The worn and the weak
And the same gentle hands
That hold me when I’m broken
They conquer death to bring me victory

Now I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry
I know my Redeemer

He lives to take away my shame
And He lives forever I’ll proclaim
That the payment for my sin
Was the precious life He gave
But now He’s alive and there’s an empty grave

And I know my Redeemer, He lives
I know my Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry

I know my Redeemer
I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
I know that, I know that, I know that, I know that, I know
I know my Redeemer lives
(Because He lives I can face tomorrow)
He lives, I know, I know, I know.
He lives
(I spoke with Him this morning.)

He lives.
(The tomb is empty)
He lives.
(I’m gotta tell everybody)

Happy Birthday in Heaven to our Mummy

Our beautiful mummy
Hazel Carmine Sandiford-Manning aka Mummy

This week I’m thinking about time … a lot.  And thinking about time often finds me thinking about my mum who we lost to pancreatic cancer in 2009.

At 69 years old she left us, never to see her grandchildren make it to secondary school, get married or have children of their own; never to be a part of our family get-togethers or a valuable member of her church anymore; never to hold us in her arms or tell us how much she loves us. She had so many things she wanted to do, and of course there were just as many things we wanted to do – with her and for her.
