Plus Size Swing


When I was a little girl one of my most favorite things to do was to *swing*. I could get in a swing and and it would seem like the cares of day, would seem to pass away. It was so relaxing. I can close my eyes and recall some special times in a swing, just like it was yesterday. I remember one summer evening, swinging to moonlight and belting out this song:

He's Everything to Me
In the stars His handiwork I see,
On the wind He speaks with majesty.
Though He ruleth over land and sea,
What is that to me?
I will celebrate Nativity,
For it has a place in history,
Sure, He came to set His people free,
What is that to me?

Til by faith I met Him face to face,
And I felt the wonder of His grace,
Then I knew that He was more
Than just a God who didn't care,
That lived away out there
and .....
Now He walks beside me day by day,
Ever watching o'er me lest I stray,
Helping me to find that narrow way,
He is everything to me.
(repeat 3 times)
By Cliff Barrows

NOW.....now.....
I am older....not that old...but loved this picture.
I would love a swing. A "Plus Size" Swing.....I think, I might be tempted to swing in the moonlight and still belt out that song. Oh, would it feel differently now...the words through the years have taken on such a depth of meaning. My heart has been changed....just the thought of swinging on my *Plus size swing* sounds so good to me.....maybe I should watch Craig's List for such a thing....what do you think ?

I, too, loved to swing. That would be so much fun to do it now! Perhaps if you lived closer we could find 2 swings on Criag's list and swing together. :)

I can see you swinging. I love it as a kid. Just swing as high as I could and then let the cat die.
I'm sure you know that means until the4 swing stops.

Did you ever swing on a sack swing?
Man, this brings back lots of memories.

I love this song. We sing it at church and it is one that lends itself to singing loud and strong!

Sure, I do believe you need a swing. What a way to Praise Him!!!
