The saga travels on,
But pieces of our hearts are left behind
As last goodbyes are said
And we’re called to new chapters in time…

The saga travels on,
Tears speak our pain as we must turn the page—
Our last goodbyes are said,
As we are carried to a different stage…

The saga travels on,
As dying hopes give way to our despair,
Our last goodbyes are said
And followed by our broken-hearted prayers…

The saga travels on,
The night is long, but at dawn new hope is born,
Love tells a different story,
It sews together hearts that once were torn…

The saga travels on
Revealing what God’s planned through all the ages:
Redemption for mankind;
His grace and love are told through all the pages…

The saga’s perfect ending
Will speak the wonder of what God has penned;
Our last goodbyes were said
But we will someday see his face again…

When happiness becomes my daily bread

I pray that I will never take the happiness God's given me for granted...

When happiness becomes my daily bread
Will blessings granted be assumed?
Will thankfulness meander far
While others starve in slums of gloom?

Nay, I pray that every day I live
I’ll count each gift with gratitude,
Each smile from her I love a jewel,
Each moment thanking God for food…

A generous banquet is prepared for me,
Where bounteous love and joy is served;
So I’ll be thanking God each day
For every taste, so undeserved…

There are so many ways that this world needs a savior... What is incredible is that God has supplied a Savior who reaches all these needs...


The silent rooms of an empty home—
How can the shards of a broken heart
Be pieced together again?

Vivid memories haunt the present—
How can the stains of a sinful past
Be purged from who I am?

Deep crevasses divide our lives—
How can our hearts, frozen in bitterness,
Be knit together as one?

But Jesus came to redeem us—
He conquered death itself:
His love is large enough
To wash the past away…
