A Day For Christ

Nicole Nordeman & Da Vinci Code

In anticipation of Robert Langdon’s and Sophie’s search for the Holy Grail on the big screen this Friday (The Da Vinci Code), I got a free giveaway from Church this morning: Exploring The Da Vinci Code.

Without being emotional over it, the book provides historical facts that either dispute or completely disregard the bogus ‘allegations’ in the novel towards early history church.

I faintly remember the book’s plot but that was a good couple of years ago. I’m looking forward to the movie, and we will probably sneak in M.I:3 too! Just to justify the high cost of that ticket stub.

Nicole Nordeman’s Woven & Spun is my music ‘snatch of the week’. She’s a contemporary Christian singer; that’s all the spiritual reason I need to buy a CD off the shelf. Any other pop/hip-hop song or album would simply be ripped off from the net by me.

One of her most popular songs, Legacy, is what first made my ear twitch to what the radio was playing. Just ask if you want to borrow the CD!

I don’t mind if you’ve got something nice to say about me
And I enjoy an accolade like the rest
You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery
Of all the who’s who and so-n-so’s that used to be the best
At such ‘n such…it wouldn’t matter much

I won’t lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights
We all need an “Atta boy” or “Atta girl”
But in the end I’d like to hang my hat on more besides
the temporary trappings of this world

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to you enough to make a mark on things?
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who blessed Your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

I don’t have to look too far or too long awhile
To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy
It’s an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon destroy


Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred
Just want to hear instead, “Well done” good and faithful one
