It's been a while

It's been quite a while since I have blogged - all sorts happening at work and, of course, holiday season. I've been away to the Cambridge Folk Festival, had a bit of a break around N. wales and been to the Edinburgh Festival - all of which has been great, but my greatest discovery this month has been a band I found whilst journying around the internet tonight - and they have really blown me away.

They are on iTunes and here are the lyrics to one of their songs from Ancient Skies - and boy did they get me.

Prodigal



I’ve tasted Your glory and I left it there.
Your poured out Your Spirit and I didn’t care.
Still you loved me


I’ve lived for myself with nobody to blame.
I took what You gave me and squandered Your grace.
Still You loved me.


Nothing compares to what You’ve done for me
Nothing compares to what You’ve done for me.


I could live for the broken and share in their pain.
I could die like a martyr or live like a saint just to love You.
I could sing like the angels and gather Your praise:
Be blessed beyond measure and give it away just to love You.
Still nothing compares to what You’ve done for me.
Nothing compares to what You’ve done for me.


My heart has been broken; I’ve laid out my shame.
Because of Your mercy,
All I can say is I love You.
So I’ll tell of Your story
I’ll carry Your name
I’ll live for Your glory Lord,
I’ll share in Your pain just to love You.
Nothing compares to what You’ve done for me.
Nothing compares to what You’ve done for me.
Nothing compares to what You’ve done for me.


Nothing can separate us
Nothing can separate us
Not death or life
Or depth or height
Or unseen power


Now or ever!

I have also had some adventures in God's Word which I will be sharing when He and I have completed one or two things......
