THEN SINGS MY SOUL SATURDAYS: the lighthouse

As I was thinking of a song that I could share for this weeks THEN SINGS MY SOUL SATURDAY, my thoughts turned to a great old hymn. When I was much younger, I always listened to Jimmy Swaggart before heading off to church. One of the reasons I liked to tune in was to hear one of his singers, John Starnes. Nobody could sing a hymn like John.


A few years ago, John Starnes came and sang at our church. I was so excited to meet him in person and he so graciously autographed my cd. One of my favorite hymns he sings is "The Lighthouse". So many times, in my daily life, storms brew up and the winds of the world hit hard.

LIGHTHOUSE

"When I 'm tossed about...

it sends out a light that I might see...

The light that shines in the darkness...

will safely lead us all...

If it wasn't for the lighthouse...

This ship would be no more!"


Facing a storm?
Isn't it refreshing to know we can run to the arms of Jesus.
He is our lighthouse!

Have a blessed Saturday...


Love, Laurie
