Fr. Todd Bulletin, December 30 2018

Dear Sacred Heart Family,

We are drawing near to the end of the year and the beginning of a new one.  It is a time to look back at the year and draw it all to a close.  Look back over this year and in hindsight see the working and providence of God.  I want to include here the lyrics of a song by Matt Redman called “Never Once” (You can look it up on YouTube).  This song additional meaning because it was the favorite song of a cousin who died unexpectedly at the age of 22 in the waning days of 2016.  It was one of the songs played at his funeral.  As a reminder of the Lord’s providence over even the hardest things of life this song has been a consolation.  May it be so for you as you look over your past year.

Fr. Todd

 

Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Never once did we ever walk alone
Carried by Your constant grace
Held within Your perfect peace

Never once, no, we never walk alone

Never one did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Every step we are breathing in Your grace
Evermore we’ll be breathing out Your praise
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are, You are faithful, God, You are faithful
