Just A Closer Walk With Thee

I needed to have church...needed to connect with my Higher Power...My Lord and Savior, I have been feeling that way for a while...that nudge. There have been a few issues going on that feel heavy to me, and honestly, I am human... and have made a few comments/posts here that after a few minutes, an hour later I have felt the shame of MY words...because while yes they came from my mouth in anger, they really came from a place of hurt, and that is what I was trying to accomplish by posting them, to strike back. Ultimately, I do not wish to hurt another, regardless of who, how or what was done to me...it is not who I am, nor who I want to be...so while I removed those comments and that particular post...it has not left me...I have felt burdened by it. Maybe, that is why I felt I needed this connection...so when some good old gospel was requested it was simply a confirmation to me that yes indeed, I needed me some Church. The Good Lord works in mysterious ways...while I can never live up to the Grace he provides for me, I am forever grateful for His Mercy. I would also like to take this time to offer my sincerest heartfelt apology to anyone who had the unfortunate experience of reading that particular post. Thanks for listening...Lisa

Tennessee Ernie Ford is a wonderful version too.

I tend to write out witty, clever comments and never post.
Like momma says, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Not a spiritual person but I like that song, here's my fav. Played it at Pop's funeral.

Jay, I like that version too..thanks! John, your Momma has a good point...and I try for witty too, but on occasion, I have let anger get a hold..and I usually don't put it out there, especially on here...but I did, and I just needed to get right with it.I took the post down an hour or so after I wrote it..but am sure some read it..so I can't take it back...just acknowledge my wrong.
