Home sweet Home

Here is the end of a long story from some friends of mine, who took off on a road trip around the whole of Australia with their young family. The whole blog has been great to follow. Here is how it ends.

Our last and very belated blog.

It was a strange feeling to be on the last leg after driving around this bloody big island we call home.  The New England and its towns are no secret, so we won’t bore you with ‘destination details’, however we did do a lap of Mt Panorama and pretty sure we set a few records on the way around… like ‘lowest gear selected to actually climb mountain’ and ‘least knowledgeable passengers about car racing’.  Bathurst was hot and busy and we were glad to see the end of it.

Mudgee impressed us with its combination of slow country pace and hip café scene. We enjoyed beers at a fantastic little brewery in the main street but unfortunately they were closed for dinner so we couldn’t sample the great looking menu.  The showgrounds provided decent camping and we hung out…

Magnificent & Song of the Father

Loving these songs from Urban Rescue. Excellent and uplifting lyrics – “Magnificent

And “Song of My Father“:

MAGNIFICENT

Welcomed in, I’m overcome at the feet of perfect love
I am ushered in by Your nail scarred hands
to the place where my chains come undone

Chorus
Magnificent! Magnificent!
We crown You Lord of all, Lamb upon the throne
Magnificent! Magnificent!
Awake my soul to sing to Him who died for me
Magnificent!

See His face now glorified
See the grave where death has died
By His royal blood
Christ has covered us
Crown Him Lord, crown Him Lord of all
He is Lord, He is Lord of all!

Bridge
All of heaven bows down
all creation cries out
‘Jesus, Jesus, Je-sus!’
All of heaven bows down
all creation cries out
“Jesus, Jesus, Jes-us!”

 

Song Of My Father

Verse 1

When silence falls
I hear You call in the secret place
You still my soul with quiet joy
And I’m wide awake

Chorus

In the middle of the night
I look up to the sky
I can hear You singing over me
Through the fire and the flood
I know that I am loved
I can hear You singing over me (yeah)

Verse 2

You spoke the earth with just one word
And You hold my heart
My ev’ry step my ev’ry breath
Is Your work of art

Bridge

I hear Your melody I hear Your symphony
There’s nothing louder than the song of my Father
(REPEAT)

Perseverance

Just a little of my daughter’s graphic work at university this year. The best reminder!

The promised river

Come all you who thirst! This is a song by Bethany Dillon based on Isaiah 55. Beautiful and encouraging.
