Hillsong United Lyrics

“Touch The Sky”

What fortune lies beyond the stars

Those dazzling heights too vast to climb

I got so high to fall so far

But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars

This gift of freedom gold can’t buy

I bought the world and sold my heart

You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again

Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender

Come sweep me up in Your love again

And my soul will dance

On the wings of forever

Find me here at Your feet again

Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender

Come sweep me up in Your love again

And my soul will dance

On the wings of forever

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again

Everything I am, reaching out I surrender

Come sweep me up in Your love again

And my soul will dance

On the wings of forever

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

Christian Christmas Music Day 10 – Taylor Swift

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 10 – Taylor Swift – A country start that became the Pop icon

The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection Song – Silent Night

My family loves Taylor Swift.  Let me start by saying that we were Taylor Swift fans before Taylor Swift was Taylor Swift.  We have been fans since her country days and to be honest, there are times when we still listen to the “old songs” because Ms. Taylors voice and a guitar was just pure magic.  The same can be said with Taylor’s version of Silent Night.  It is such a change of pace (in a good way) to your traditional version of the song.  It was a song that we would listen to when we would be missing Georgia.

In 2014, my daughter and I had the chance of a lifetime to not only spend a night with Taylor Swift but also do so at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.  My daughter had an absolute blast! This concert had a huge impact on my daughter.  Even now at the age of 10, my daughter still wears Keds, writes poems, short stories, and has journals because “…thats what Taylor use to do”.  Since the concert she also started joining the school choir and has participated in plays.  Never would have imagined that a concert would have such an impact on a 8 year old.  Taylor Swift’s  1989 album is my families soundtrack during our adventures in the Pacific and Asia for the last two years.  Believe me, Shake it off and Blank Space has been blasted in the Philippines, Japan, and Guam plenty of times! -PJSLB

Christian Christmas Music Day 8 – Whitney Houston

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 8 – Whitney Houston – Sung the best version of the US National Anthem

One Wish The Holiday Album Song – O come O come, Emmanuel

whitney-houston-84791_1280

Growing up, there was a voice that no matter was the topic of her song, always had me just stay still and listen.  There was her song for the movie The Bodyguard, I Ihave Nothing that has parts in it where you really doubt that it is a human being singing because there is no way a human can hit those notes with such command and ease.  Mrs. Houston had me standing still again during the beginning Super Bowl XXV (my Giants won!) when just days after the US entered the war, she sang what is to this day the standard of what the US National Anthem should sound like.

Whitney’s struggles while on earth is well document BUT also is her love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  When people ask me how can someone like Whitney say they love the Lord and particiapte in such aweful things, my answer is always the same:

Our Lord is comfort to those who seek him.  We are all lost and broken and it is thru Jesus that we are redeemed.  Our salvation is something that no person on this earth can take away for it is a gift from God.  A gift we received when we accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our savior who died for our sins.

Merry Christmas to all!  =)  -PJSLB

Christian Christmas Music Day 7

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 7 – Nat King Cole – The “unforgetable” voice

The Christmas Album  Song – Joy to the world

Nat King Cole Christmas

I first heard about Nat King Cole when I saw his daughter Natalie Cole do a duet with her father using old photos and singing with him.  I remember having chills just thinking about what Natalie was going thru singing a song like that.  Since then, I have been a fan of Nat King Cole and all that he has done for for music thru Jazz.

This morning i saw my daugthers walking to class and i thought, “…wow they are growing up so fast”.  That moment with my daughter along with the picture above and the singing of Natalie Cole with her father makes me very blessed this morning.  Thank you lord for allowing me to take care of these kids while they are here and thank you for the moment Natalie got to sing with her father.   Merry Christmas!  =)  -PJSLB
