Forgiven and Free
God has equipped me with strength,
so I may walk blameless with Him.
He has given me cause and desire,
For my heart to sing praise to Him.
He called me out of the darkness,
That I may reflect His love and mercy.
He took my sins and made me clean,
I will testify so all the world may see.
The Lord dwells within my heart,
Exalted is the God of my salvation.
The love of the Lord protects me;
As His child I belong to His Holy nation.
God has given to me a purpose,
To show others what He’s done for me.
He is my sacrifice; He paid the price;
That I may live for Him, forgiven and free.

EGO IN THE BACK SEAT
He tried doing it on his own,
His male perogative bone…
And his body smarted,
He left it for weeks undone!
Cleaning out a car’s back seat
Used to take an hour complete…
Now it behooves
Making any progress sweet.
Man acknowledges need
Of helpmeets to accomplish the deed…
Her help in the task,
Surprised her that the old dog was freed!
