Jesus Is The Lighthouse


There's a lighthouse on the hillside
That overlooks life's sea.
When I'm tossed it sends out a light,
Tis a light that I might see.
And the light that shines in darkness now
Will safely lead us o'er.
If it wasn't for the lighthouse,
My ship would be no more.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone a light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

Everybody that lives around us
Says tear that lighthouse down.
The big ships don't sail this way anymore,
There's no use of it standing around.
Then my mind goes back to that stormy night,
When just in time I saw the light;
Yes the light from that old lighthouse
That stands up there on the hill.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone a light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

Dear Terry,
I love the idea of Christ being a lighthouse.
In fact we have a church hear built like a big lighthouse. When I lived south of the town I was able to see the tower shining in the dark nights.
You can imagine the strong comfort in that sight.
Have a nice Lord's Day.

The one who wrote "The Lighthouse" is also the author of "The Cross in the Middle Should Have Been Mine" and "When He Was On the Cross I was on His Mine". When the Light House was first released it was the number one song in the Top Forty for "The Singing News" It was recorded by The Hinson" and Rusty Godman. What a song!!
Oh,by the way the author was Ronnie Hinson. Look at the authors when going through the Top Forty and you'll see his name. It was number one for over a year!!!!
Well,the van stopped running tonight and fortunately a Christian is selling his Ford Torrez so we will pick it up in the morning.

Jeff is in a rough state right now, He seemed to want to get saved but he is fearful. Some what the dad eh?
What are they afraid of I don't know but the Author of fear and delusion is doing his best to cloud the issue. It's late gotta run. I see the uralogist and cardiologist and nutrionlist on Tuesday anf the sleep test on Tuesday night. Canada Pension wants get the results so they can work on my Disability Pension. They have an agreement with the US to to recognize this issue.

Love You



PS We are having an email conversation with Kris and Craig .

Jeff also has a phone again and email address


Let me know how this machine makes out.You know how many records I dumped on you and I miss a lot of them,especially The Kinsmen's Big and Alive from the late seventies.

Oh yes we still use the WDCX Christian Country tapes you made for me in 2000-2001.That's nine years ago.Wow!!!

I,m talking about them two ladies saying all them insults about me ? You never know when I might sneak in ? I was on the way home when I guess it was the devil laughing at me so I had to find out who was talking about me ?

I know how it is to feel like you have been forgotton ? My Mom used to feel bad when She used to tie a porkchop around my neck just to get the dog to play with me ? Sorry and would ya'll please forgive me ?

grandpaw ron.

Saija said...

amen ...

jel said...

now grandpaw,

we were just thinking of you !

Terry said...

hey sunshine what a little a little miracle worker YOU are. your warm sun rays got that grandpaw ron to show his face and come up for air from faceook, eh?
my cold insults didn't do a thing!

jel, katy was a handicapped person who was living with a christian family. instead of being in an institute the rest of her life, she was allowed to come and live with janice and larry and their kids.
for the last seven years or so, she had lived a very happy life but a few weeks ago she got liver cancer which really took her fast.
although the christians are grieving her loss, we know that it is heaven's gain and that we will see her again up there..
thanks for asking.
i had a few pictures of her on my sunday school treat post and felisol took a real liking to her..

thanks for getting that great grandpappy ron out of the woodwork all we have to do is keep him here for awhile!.Love terry
