God's Been Good

GOD'S BEEN GOOD (lyrics with a little tweaking)

Verse 1
Lately I've been looking back, along this winding road
To the old familiar markers of the mercies I have known
I know it may sound simple but it's more than a cliche
There's no better way to tell you, than to say

God's been good in my life
I've blessed beyond my wildest dreams when I go to sleep each night
And though I've had my share of hard times, by my side He's always stood
Through it all, God's been good

Verse 2
Times replay and I can see that I've cried some bitter tears
But I felt His arms around me, as I faced my greatest fears
You see I've had more gains than losses and I've known more joy than hurt
As His grace rolled down upon me undeserved


For God has been my Father, my Savior and my Friend
His love was my beginning, and His love will be my end
I could spend forever trying to tell you everything He is
But the best that I can say it is this

Hello, My Name is Aundrea

Wow, it's been almost a MONTH since my last post. A lot has happened. A lot has not. First of all, I would like to say that I love living in North Carolina. Moving hours from your home state and family is tough. But God never leads you down a wrong road. I am so happy to be here- surrounded by countless blessings. God has brought me to a better place. A place He chose- this is where I want you. It caused heartache and pain. Separation and changes. But the trial brought blessing. As it always does. It's been over a year and a half- there are still changes and adjustments to come, each day more blessings are given. I realize more and more how blessed I am.

And today was the first snow of the season. And what a blessing it is. There was only a 20% chance. Did it snow a lot? No- not a lot at all! But, it SNOWED and it is BEAUTIFUL. And even more wonderful is knowing that my friends will be able to make it home tomorrow despite of it. How wonderful- God blessed by providing the snow that I enjoyed seeing, but not enough for us to have to really worry about tomorrow nights incoming flight and drive home. :) God is good.

Another blessing is God's faithfulness to my soul. When He shows me ways that I can be more like Him. Thank you, Father.

Thank you for changing me. And for changing my ways.
Thank you for the new year, I endeavor to serve you faithfully.
Thank you for the friends and family that surround me and support me. And thank you for the friends and family that support me over the miles.
Thank you for the snow. Thank you for loving me enough to give such blessings-things that I want, even though I may not need them.
Thank you for your faithfulness to my soul. Thank you for saving me. Thank you for delivering me from myself.
