FRIDAY FAST FORWARD

After a few weeks pause – here is this week’s Friday Fast Forward – my favorite links that I have stumbled on in the last 7 (-ish) days or so.

REDISCOVERED HYMN
I stumbled on the superb words of this beautiful hymn on Josh Harris’s blog a few weeks ago. It captures so beautifully the great affections of God for undeserving sinners just like me:

He washed my eyes with tears that I might see,
The broken heart I had was good for me;
He tore it all apart and looked inside,
He found it full of fear and foolish pride.
He swept away the things that made me blind,
And then I saw the clouds were silver lined;
And now I understand ’twas best for me,
He washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

He washed my eyes with tears that I might see,
The glory of Himself revealed to me;
I did not know that He had wounded hands,
I saw the blood He spilt upon the sands.
I saw the marks of shame and wept and cried,
He was my substitute for me He died;
And now I’m glad He came so tenderly
And washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

SOUND
After the title – this is actually my visual link of the week. Interesting and full of observations. Are you listening? Properly?

OP 10 HIGHLIGHTED BIBLE VERSES
Kindle has this great feature in which you can both highlight and see what other highlighted. The top 10 doesn’t show many surprises. Two observations: they are verses that encourage and they are a bit ‘me-centred’. Make of that what you want. J

HOW TO PACK A BAG
great little feature aimed at blokes. It avoids the stereotypical over-packing that women tend to do as well as the packing ineptitude blokes tend to suffer from. I learned a few new tricks.

THE CIVIL WARS
Saw these two perform on Jools the other week. I loved their simplicity and the harmonies:
