I have not been able to particpipate in TSMSS in a while so I thought this might be a good weekend to join in. People told me for weeks that I would need a vacation AFTER the vacation and I will admit, I didn't believe them, but boy o boy, this week has really been hard.
Yes, I AM thankful for the week long totally paid for vacation (PRAISE GOD), but I believe the highs of it all left an opportunity to come crashing down if I wasn't careful. Unfortunately, I came crashing down the last few days..... BUT GOD got me right back up again after I prayed and absorbed all that He has done for me and my family. God put things in perspective for me.
Makes you wonder though .. how in the world do people live this life we have without God? There is NO WAY I could have made it through the last few days, 5 years or all of my life for that matter without having the Father to come to, depend on, lean on, cry out to, praise for, thank Him for .. there is NO way.
And yet, I do matter to Him. He has a gazillion things and children to take care of (stated so nicely in a childlike manner), but even in all of that .. He knows who I am, where I am and what I need.
So today, my contribution to TSMSS is from Anthony Evans, not Pastor Evans, but his son ... A song called Meaningless. This life, my life IS meaningless without Jesus.

Oh wow, what a GREAT song!! Loved the lyrics and boy can he sing!!

I never knew he had a song who sang. What talent.

I know the feeling of needing a VACATION after the VACATION.

I'll going to check out your other posts.

You've been missed!!

What a great song; I'd never heard it before.

This has actually been on my mind a lot this week as I've reflected and posted on the death of Tim Russert and smaller local funeral I attended.

It all comes down to one thing.
