FILL YOUR DREAMS WITH SWEET TOMORROWS!

It struck me in the early hours of this morning just what a beautiful prayer is set in the tune of the old song. Written by Meredith Wislson, it has been recorded by many popular and country artists including Kate Smith, Jim Reeves and Eddy Arnold. We sang it as the closing of the service on the Lord’s Day morning.  But it think it is a most fitting prayer for the coming week.

May the good Lord bless and keep you
Whether near or far away
May you find that long awaited
Golden day today

May your troubles all be small ones
And your fortunes ten times ten
May the good Lord bless and keep you
Till we meet again

May you walk with sunlight shining
And a bluebird in every tree
May there be a silver lining
Around every cloud you seeI

I especially took this last verse as an admonition to “look UP and press ON”.  To remind myself of William Carey’s sermon from Isaiah 54:2 entitled- “Attempt Great Things for God, Expect Great Things From God”.

Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrows
Never mind what might have been
May the good Lord bless and keep you
Till we meet again

(May you walk with sunlight shining)
And a bluebird in every tree
(May there be a silver lining)
Back of every cloud you see

Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrows
Never mind what might have been
May the good Lord bless and keep you
Till we meet again!
