WHEREVER I GO
Wherever I go, whatever I do,
whoever I am, I'm going with you.
No matter the time, no matter the place, however I move, you walk at my pace. On every day of every year
the weather may change,
but you're still here.
Jesus, you're the light for the journey, you're the destination and the road.
You provide the signs along the highway, you're the best companion I know.
We could be delighted or dejected,
at the beach or standing in the rain, Jesus, you will never ever leave us,
we can trust your blood and your pain.
Take all our fear,
make us brave, make us strong; earth is our home,
this is where we belong.
I woke up out of a dream where people were asking me to sing songs with some kids before a big outdoor service. I knew that they didn’t know my songs, but I thought I’d try an oldie with them, ‘Walkin down the road’. I woke up thinking I needed to write an updated version of the song. This is it. That I used the opening words of our wedding Bible text (Genesis 28:15) was completely unknown to me at the time. I only realised it later. Dorothy helped to improve the chorus, while Thom wrote the melody of the bridge and had various other suggestions that improved the song.
2019 - a big year
July 26 1949 Robin Mann was born, 9th child of Arthur & Elsie Mann
November 5 1949 Dorothy Stiller was born, 4th child of Hugo & Valmai Stiller
December 20 1969 Robin & Dorothy were married at Christ Church Lutheran, Murray Bridge
So, in 2019 we have some special anniversaries to celebrate. Apart from a trip in Turkey in May, we're still working on other ideas. A night of music seems to be a likely starter.
