His Banner Over Me is Love

He is the Shepherd and we are the sheep,
His banner over me is love.
He is the Shepherd and we are the sheep,
His banner over me is love.
He is the Shepherd and we are the sheep,
His banner over me is love.
His banner over me is love!

He is the Vine and we are the branches,
His banner over me is love.
He is the Vine and we are the branches,
His banner over me is love.
He is the Vine and we are the branches,
His banner over me is love.
His banner over me is love!

He calls us to His Banqueting Table,
His banner over me is love.
He calls us to His Banqueting Table,
His banner over me is love.
He calls us to His Banqueting Table,
His banner over me is love.
His banner over me is love!

Glad to hear of your pleasant day. I worked today, but it was a nice day.
I remember that song from when I was in junior high. I liked it then but appreciate the words more now.
Have a nice evening!

Happy New Year, Saija! My day was quiet and peaceful. I did some reading, took a nice nap, and got a few chores done around the house. Tomorrow it's back to the office.

I hope you and Leo have a wonderful, happy, healthy 2008!

I love that post with the song. I remember the little children singing it in church. Mine was a nice quiet day as usual. It has been fun getting New Year's wishes from friends.

Tomorrow is shaping up like a nice day for a swim

Hi Saija,
sorry to be so late in visiting you... but my internet connection is "out of order"..
I spent about 2 hours on the phone with the on line help people on New Years Day just fo find out that it is the phone line... I am borrowing time on a computer this morning just so I can visit some of my friends...
My daughter Jodi (Deputy Domain) posted a notice on my blog for me this morning telling my friends that I am "TEMP. OUT OF ORDER" through Friday... you know how long it takes the Telephone people to come fix you back up...
Glad to see you had a nice New years...
I will be seeing you again real soon
Love,
Mimi
