Thank you Matt Redmon
I really enjoy stopping by this Pastor's website because he finds great quotes and videos. Can't make my embedding work but its title is Christ is Deeper Still
Matt Redman is a contemporary singer/song writer discussing the issue of the lovey dovey language in many newer praise songs. The point was that some of the language is so romantic it makes the blokes (His word) uncomfortable.
He mentioned two songs, one which we sing and I like, O Lord You're Beautiful and another song which ends with, "Jesus I am so in love with you." The in love set me off from the beginning. I am in love with my wife, and I have spiritual love for my saviour. Anyway, Matt regrets using those words, and I thank you for that Matt.
On another subject, the economic downturn has caused a phenomenon in my neighborhood in which finished stores have decided not to open and unfinished centers have stopped construction, including a Lifetime Fitness just north of us. Today I joined the city of Chandlers latest fitness center, which is quite well laid out and has a nice walking track. A 30 day test to see if I get more active before we hit the busy season around here. Exercise, I am so not in love with you!!!!
