Here I Am To Worship

For years now, my family has gone to the 11:45 Mass on Sunday mornings. As we've had more children, the time is sometimes inconvenient, coinciding with both lunch and nap times, but I love hearing my brother (the choir director for that Mass time) sing, so we make it work. I am sometimes moved to tears by the beauty of his voice and the power of the lyrics, and quite often, I'll have a particular song in my head for the rest of the week. Such is the case with this beautiful song: Here I Am To Worship, by Tim Hughes. I've had it in my mind all morning, and I just had to hear it today! Much to my happy surprise, I found a beautiful version of it on YouTube, which I'm sharing here with you now to brighten your morning, too. Enjoy!

so, this has nothing to do with your blog, i just don't have your email addy, and it made me laugh. please forgive the sacrilige. (=

After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to
visit Eve. "So, how is everything going?" inquired

"It is all so beautiful, God," she replied. "The
sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells, the
sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just one
problem. It is these breasts you have given me. The
middle one pushes the other two out and I am
constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them
on branches and snagging them on bushes. They are a
real pain," reported Eve.

And Eve went on to tell God that since many other
parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs,
eyes, ears, etc.

She felt that having only two breasts might leave her
body more symmetrically balanced, as she put it. "That
is a fair point," replied ! God, "But it was my first
shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six
breasts, so I figured that y ou needed only half of
those, but I see that you are right. I will fix it up
right away."

And God reached down, removed the middle breast and
tossed it into the bushes.

Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in
the Garden of Eden.

"Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation?"

"Just fantastic," she replied, "But for one oversight
on your part. You see, all the animals are paired off.
The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull.

All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so

God thought for a moment and said, "You know, Eve, you
are right. How could I have overlooked this? You do
need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a
part of you. Now let's see............ where did I put
that useless boob?"

Now doesn't THAT make more sense than that crap about
the rib?
