Blessed be your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Image

Blessed Be Your name
When I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Image

Blessed be Your name
When the sun’s shining down on me
When the world’s ‘all as it should be’
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Image

Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Image

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

The Moody Blues – Story in Your Eyes

Every good boy deserves a favour

Every good boy deserves a favour

The Moody Blues – Story in your eyes  – song and lyrics

I’ve been thinking about our fortune,
And I’ve decided that we’re really not to blame.
For the love that’s deep inside us now,
Is still the same.And the sound we make together,
Is the music to the story in your eyes.
It’s been shining down upon me now,
I realize.Listen to the tide slowly turning,
Wash all our heartaches away.
We are part of the fire that is burning,
And from the ashes we can build another day.But I’m frightened for your children,
And the life that we are living is in vain.
And the sunshine we’ve been waiting for,
Will turn to rain.Listen to the tide slowly turning,
Wash all our heartaches away.
We are part of the fire that is burning,
And from the ashes we can build another day.But I’m frightened for your children,
And the life that we are living is in vain.
And the sunshine we’ve been waiting for,
Will turn to rain.When the final line is over,
And it’s certain that the curtain’s gonna fall.
I can hide inside your sweet sweet love,
For ever more.
The Moody Blues

A moment of Inner Peace and Solitude

Image

A moment of Inner Peace and Solitude

Image

One fleeting moment of inner peace,

A brief glimpse of a world at peace with itself.

All is quiet now except for the chirping of a sparrow.

Far away from the ROAR of the city traffic,

away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

All those the Father gives me will come to me,

and whoever comes to me I  will never drive away.”

Blessed by the BEST

Image

This article is about the book that I am writing called Blessed by the BEST and is dedicated to Brother Ed and the Long Beach RESCUE MISSION

Image

Brother Ed Robinson is a manager for the bed guests of the Long Beach Rescue Mission and is the man behind this book Blessed By the Best. I feel that I have been blessed by the best to have known someone like Brother Ed and I describe in detail how he enriched my life. I stayed at the mission as a bed guest from December 2013 until early April 2014. I looked forward to Brother Ed’s daily sermons which were held in the chapel at 5:30pm just before dinner time. His sermons provided us with guidance and the inspiration to look forward to another day. Brother Ed always had a smile on his face and an upbeat attitude on life even though he had been diagnosed with STAGE-1 bone cancer in January 2014. He often discussed his experiences of living on the street in South-Central Los Angeles before coming to the mission himself as a bed guest a few years ago. He spoke of his addiction with crack cocaine and his dependence on the Pusher-Man. His guidance reminds me of the lyrics in the song Amazing Grace “I was lost but now I’m found….I was blind but now I see” I thank Brother Ed and the staff of the Long Beach Rescue Mission for helping me to move forward in my life enabling me to see a much clearer path in front of me. This book Blessed by the Best details how I became homeless after traveling from Texas to southern California and shows how the three homeless shelters that I stayed in helped shape my life.

ImageThis book will show of my interaction with other homeless people who stayed at the shelters as well as those who slept out on the streets. I describe about the pros and cons of being homeless in Southern California as well as how I eventually made it back to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to start a new life. If you would like to help me fund my book and be sure that it gets published . You can help by donating to my KICKSTARTER project account: I will have the link posted shortly. Thanks in advance for your cooperation to help make this book possible.  I am hoping that this book should be published sometime during June of this year.

I can also accept donations by PayPal,  sent to eastern.sea.star@gmail.com on the Paypal website.

In the BEGINNING was the WORD

John 1

King James Version (KJV)

Image

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Image

The same was in the beginning with God.

In the beginning was the WORD

In the beginning was the WORD

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John_1-1

Modern Proverbs and words of wisdom

I love the book of proverbs in the old testament in the bible as it enriches me with many inspirational verses that can help lead my life down a straight and narrow path

Proverbs 1

New International Version (NIV)

Purpose and Theme

Image

The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:

for gaining wisdom and instruction;
    for understanding words of insight;
for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
    doing what is right and just and fair;
for giving prudence to those who are simple,[a]
    knowledge and discretion to the young—
let the wise listen and add to their learning,
    and let the discerning get guidance—
for understanding proverbs and parables,
    the sayings and riddles of the wise.[b]

Image

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
    but fools[c] despise wisdom and instruction.
