Caedmon's Call - Sacred
 Recently I was reflecting on the song below by Caedmon's Call, one of my favorite bands.  I thought about my wonderful wife and how she laborers in the fields of the abundant harvest of our family every day.  What a ministry raising a family is!  I am so thankful for the partner that God gave me to walk through ministry and life together with.

this house is a good mess
it’s the proof of life
no way would I trade jobs
but it don’t pay overtime

I’ll get to the laundry
I don’t know when
I’m saying a prayer tonight
cause tomorrow it starts again

could it be that everything is sacred?
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

the children are sleeping
but they’re running through my mind
the sun makes them happy
and the music makes them unwind

my cup runneth over
and I worry about the stain
teach me to run to You
like they run to me for every little thing


when I forget to drink from you
I can feel the banks harden
Lord, make me like a stream
to feed the garden

wake up, little sleeper
the Lord, God Almighty
made your Mama keeper
so rise and shine

rise and shine cause
