“All I Know” by Five for Fighting

Who’s on your heart today?

I bruise you
You bruise me
We both bruise so easily
Too easily to let it show
I love you and that’s all I know
And all my plans
Keep fallin’ through
All my plans, they
Depend on you
Depend on you
To help them grow
I love you
And that’s all I know
When the singer’s gone
Let the song go on
There’s a fine line between
The darkness and the dawn
They say in the darkest night
There’s a light beyond
And the ending always
Comes at last
Endings always
Come too fast
They come too fast
And they pass too slow
I love you
And that’s all, it’s really all I know
It’s all I know
It’s all I know

“The House of Faith Has Many Rooms” by Carl Daw

For whom, for what, for where are you praying today?

The house of faith has many rooms where we have never been;

There is more space within God’s scope than we have ever seen.

We dare not limit God’s domain to what our creeds declare,

Or shrink from probing things unknown lest God should not be there.

The way to God is not escape, though truth does make us free:

The life of chosen servanthood is perfect liberty.

Yet still we seek at journey’s end the last and sweetest grace,

The gift of room to turn around and know God face to face.

#MoralMonday “Army of Love” by Lynn Blakey

Where do you pray to see justice and peace break forth today?

We are surrounded by an army of love
And the powers that be are not enough, to stop us
We are home we are free
We are hope and family
We are surrounded by an army of love

Hey mister please hands off of me you should use your hands to feed a hungry child
Help a family in need
There’s no stranger by my side we’ve been neighbors all our lives
Love is all you need to stand in this army

CHORUS

Sister Rosanell, please lead, show us how and what you’ve seen since the days when you were young and some still blind
To the beauty of the trees, to the people and the sea [pain of poverty] and to mercy as it ripens on the vine

CHORUS

We’ve come too far to go back and the first shall be the last and the last shall be first so we’ll run
We are coming far and wide and with justice on our side, love is all you need to be in this army

CHORUS
Repeat
We are surrounded by an army of love (3X)
We are guarded by an army of love

#SelfCareSaturday “Alive Again” by Cher

Stop. Breathe. Again. Now try praying for yourself.

All alone
I must stand
Even when I’m running
And it feels, like a dream
I need to awaken from

I believe
When it hurts
We must keep on trying
But I want, and I need
Like a river needs the rain
There’s a bridge I need to burn before I leave
I just want to breathe again
Like a summer’s day I need to feel the heat again

I only want to keep the stone from rolling
I only want to learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only want to learn to freeze the flame
I know I’ll be alive again
I want to be alive again

Here’s the night, where are the stars ’cause I need some guiding
And it cuts like a knife as I watch you walk away

There’s a bridge I need to burn before I leave
I just want to live again
Like a stormy rain I need to hear it beat again

I only want to keep the stone from rolling
I only want to learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only want to learn to freeze the flame
I know I’ll be alive again
I want to be alive again
I want to be alive again

‘Cause I did my best
Baby who’d have guessed that I failed the test
‘Cause when love ain’t blessed and it’s laid to rest it can leave a mess

I only want to keep the stone from rolling
I only want to learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only want to learn to freeze the flame

I only want to keep the stone from rolling
I only want to learn to feel the rain
Then maybe I could stop the leaves from falling
I only want to learn to freeze the flame
