As I recently shared: my daughter turned 21.

As I spent the day "mourning" :) these lyrics came to mind:

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future 
I was a baby when this song was made popular.

Not having any idea what the song was about I had to look it up.

Sure I could sing the chorus... and then I found this:

Feed the babies
Who don't have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin' in the street
Oh, oh, there's a solution

HA! How had I missed this.  Besides being an infant :)  but I have heard this song other places--but there it was all along.  Maybe you missed it too. 


Time is slipping into the future. Let's not miss our opportunity to serve. 

Feed the babies:
Children's Hope Chest

Shoe the children:
Tied Together: Letting others walk a mile in your shoes

Well, we are not housing the people...
but HELPing the  people Livin' in the street
Heart for Homeless a ministry started by my 15 year old son. (I think many missed this post as I posted it the same day as another)


I am blown away by how the Lord is moving in my son's life through this ministry.  Each week we are blown away by donations and giving.  This week we get to go and buy more things to make MORE kits... We calculated that it cost's a little less than $9 to make a kit that contains:
Water
Tuna Salad Kit
Vienna Sausages
Cookies
Cereal Bar
Gum
Tooth Brush & Paste
Deodorant
Razor
Hand Sanitizer
Tissues
Powder
Cough Drops & Band Aids
Lip Balm
Socks
and a "He Had No Home" track.

This Sunday, we will be making more kits. Writing notes with scriptures and hope for the least of these.   We appreciate your prayers!  and be sure I will tell you all about it.

I think about Haiti and the devastation and the many that gave $10. Over $1,000,000 were raised.  I found one site that said 2 MILLION!  That is amazing.

I am happy!  BUT let's keep it up!  Find something PERSONAL! a ministry that grabs YOUR heart!


I recommend HOPE MONGERS if you don't know where to start.

You can:
Find a Project
Give $10 or more
Transform Lives Together!


There is still time...be the SOLUTION!

Steve Miller Fly Like An Eagle Lyrics

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution

Feed the babies
Who don't have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin' in the street
Oh, oh, there's a solution

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
