Shaping a Genesis week from the chaos of my life

Reality check

Shopping List
(Lesa Bryant, Larry Bryant)

Lord, I need to talk to you.  There’s so much on my heart.
So many burdens makes it hard to know just where to start. I thank you for your family, your mercy and your love. Now on to more important things.  I’ll give my magic lamp a rub.

Give me this, I want that. Bless me Lord I pray. Grant me what I think I need to make it through the day. Make me wealthy, keep me healthy. Fill in what I missed on my never-ending shopping list.

Lord, you’ve been so good to me, how could I ask for more?
But since you said to ask, I will–’cause what else is prayer for?
The cattle on a thousand hills, they all belong to you.
I don’t need any cows right now but something else might do.

Give me this, I want that. Bless me Lord I pray Grant me what I think I need to make it through the day. Make me wealthy, keep me healthy. Fill in what I missed on my never-ending shopping list.

I want a nice white smile on a perfect face and perfect hair that will stay in place. I want a smaller nose and a single chin and a figure like a perfect ten.

And a mom that never yells or screams and hips that fit in designer jeans.
And a tennis court and a heated pool–I could use them, Lord as a witnessing tool. And a colour tv and a VCR and Jesus plates on a brand new car. 


This is an old song (clearly, since Bluray replaced DVD after it replaced the VCR…).  I enjoy it on the album Comfort and Joy by Babbie Mason.  It’s part of our Christmas tradition and a good reminder as the malls are crazy-busy right now.

I couldn’t find a YouTube video of her singing it though.  This rendition is by the songwriter, Larry Bryant.

Let's talk. What can you add to this discussion?
