All I need...

Making batter and cakes this afternoon, and I thought I'd flip through my old cds and find something to make my mixer spin... Came across a really old Sara Groves cd. Now this is a song for a recession, and it made me smile... Most of us need this wake up call. Check out the lyrics...

All I Need

Newly married, new apartment
All our furniture was saved from the dump
Yes dear maybe we can afford a trashcan next month

All I need is my love for you and a seat for two

New baby new life
We will teach him to speak French
We’ve got no money so we’ll make it all ourselves
I’ll make the curtains and you make the shelves

All I need is a power saw and a new sewing machine

Honey, this house needs a little something
That bare mantle doesn’t look so good
Someone told me of a man
Who makes animals from driftwood

All I need is your monthly bonus for a wooden walrus

Honey, the Colbaughs are coming over
This house needs some renovations
Just a wall or two, just a little room
And a few new decorations
All I need is a sectional and a satellite TV and dark-wood cabinets that were custom built for me
and a painting by that guy that paints with his feet...

That’s all I need
For now

Go here for the video...

Funny, Mary Carol Grant was our speaker at Mops last time and she talked about contentment and read this to us! Great reminder to be content with what we have and what God has given us!!
