Today for Game Time Tuesday, we probably couldn’t get away with playing Christmas music for our games, now could we? So here’s what we did…
For Song Poetry, our lyrics were…
“You are my strength and comfort
You are my steady hand
You are my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand.”

That’s our friend Lauren Daigle with “Trust in You”
