Six Pence none the richer

Six pence none the richer....a band I loved...
Posted by Hello

this band is one of my fav christian bands...though they had some billboard hits
and MTV songs too they showed their character even when they did secular shows and music

here is an extact from their bio on the net
With each encounter, they patiently tell once more the story that Nash recounted in her appearance on Letterman in August, 1999.  Although Nash has never completely overcome her youthful nervousness on stage, she bravely walked over to a chair on the "Late Show" stage following her band's performance.
After asking where the band's name came from, Letterman teasingly interrupted Nash to ask if he could stop by her hotel room after the show.  Nash's blank silence stopped him cold, chastening him into an apology.  With that, she proceeded to finish her story.
"It comes from a book by C. S. Lewis...called Mere Christianity," she resumed.  "A little boy asks his father if he can get a sixpence - a very small amount of English currency - to go and get a gift for his father. The father gladly accepts the gift and he's really happy with it, but he also realizes that he's not any richer for the transaction..."
"He bought his own gift," Letterman responded.  "That's right," Nash continued. "C.S. Lewis was comparing that to his belief that God has given him, and us, the gifts that we possess, and to serve Him the way we should, we should do it humbly...realizing how we got the gifts in the first place."
"Well, that's beautiful," Letterman stammered, with uncharacteristic earnestness.  "If we could just keep that little sliver of enlightenment with us, things would be so much better..."
isnt that reassuring and isnt that wonderful....
God bless them

Six Pence none the richer

"Trust in the lord" is one of my fav songs of Spntr
and so is Kiss me

here are the words to Trust in the lord based on Proverbs 3 : 5-7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not on your own understanding
In all of your ways acknowledge Him
And He will make you paths straight
Don't worry about tomorrow
He's got it under control
Just trust in the Lord with all of your heart
And He will carry you through

Lord, sometimes it gets so tough
To keep my eyes on You
When thinks are going rough
But when I turn my eyes up to the sky
And I hear Your voice it says to me

So child do not be weary with the troubles
Of this world I have overcome
