By water or fire, you’ll not quench love’s desire
Foe, flood, or flame, there’s protection in His name
As they say, “Come what may…”
For me, Jesus is the only way
“Hell or high water”, I’ll be safe in the arms of Love
As sure as His hope flies in “on the wings of a dove”
I shall not be afraid nor offended,
Even at the cost of my life being prematurely ended.
For “To live is Christ, to die is gain”
His rainbow reminds us after the rain
Of promises we have in His beautiful name
Yesterday, Today, and Forever the same
Jesus’ word will surely remain
Let perfect love be perfected in me, till Jesus is all I see.
I’m in it for love; my love is Jesus.

I once met this amazing fellow who likes to say, “People don’t CARE about how much you KNOW, they only want to KNOW how much you CARE.” Such an aptly fitting mantra of this man’s lifestyle and work. Joe’s business is Kingdom business. He works for Jesus “providing food, shelter, and HOPE to ALL those in NEED”, just as his business cards read. Was a great honor to meet this kind brother and I’m looking forward to giving him my support.
Hope you enjoy this poem he passed on to me…
Please don’t find fault with the one who trips,
or stubles along the road.
Unless you have worn the shoes they wear
or struggle beneath their load.
There may be tacks in their shoes that hurt,
though hidden from your view,
Or the burden they bear, placed on YOUR back,
might cause YOU to stumble too.
Don’t sneer at the one who’s down today,
unless you have felt the blow,
that caused their fall, or felt the shame,
that only the fallen know.
You may be strong, but still, the blows that where theirs,
if dealt to YOU, in the very same way,
at the very same time, might cause YOU to stagger TOO
– Joe DeMicco

Today I’m happy to share that one of my all time favorite YouTube videos also happens to be about my favorite holiday!
Yes – Pesach, the ‘Feast of Passover’, is one of my favorite celebrations of the year!
Thank you to all my Israeli family out there who have invited me for all the seder meals over the years. I cherish all our times spent together and will never forget you guys. I miss and love you! Watch and be Joyfull, Hag Sameah!!
You are always in my prayers as I ask G-d to make your life complete because your Messiah paid for your wealth, health, joy, and eternal life with His own blood sacrifice. That is how much G-d loves His children!!
It’s because of this great Messiah that I love you too,

1.) Do They Know It’s Christmas (Feed The World) – Band Aid
The worlds most amazing music artist, singing for the world’s greatest need. The above is a modern version, but this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=280FERTWG3A and the original version (my favorite), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU4E9vLtxIM are equally as great.

Sometimes I walk my life out on a tightrope
Somewhere so high above your head
Yeah you can’t understand my balance
and if I didn’t I’d fall dead
Already died once can’t do it again
Up here I got my life line
Up here walking is divine
Up here getting closer to the vine
closer closer all the time
If you ask about my lofty perspective
It comes from the one who gave me this directive
He said, lose your life to gain it back
He said, die to sin let your new life begin
It’s a true love guarantee
written in blood for you and me
Yeah, you may think I’m insane
but the reality is…
To live is Christ, and to die is gain!
You may think I’m insane,
well that’s what I think of your life
so insanely lifeless, a life mundane.
So come on already,
Come on up here!
Up here we’re having forever time
Up here we drink the new wine!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
