elvis and grace

by karen #1965 third grade teacher...i did this painting awhile back...someone purchased it for their son-in-law that lived out west...whatever...check it out...........
the title of this painting is "elvis could be buying grandkids happy meals at mcdonalds"....when i was a kid, my dad played elvis on his "state of the art" quadraphonic stereo...i hated elvis...my dad also took us to an elvis concert at the macon coliseum in macon, georgia...i think i understood elvis after the concert...as i grew older, those elvis tunes continued to pop up...i ended up liking elvis...a bunch...i knew elvis sang gospel songs...i picked "amazing grace" to be on this painting because it tied in with the acronym
G R A C E- God's Riches At Christ's Expense...the funniest part of the painting is "thank you very much."...elvis always said, "thank you very much."...the end of the painting reads, "he got caught in a trap...and he did get out because of grace...thank you very much."...we should all be thankful for God's grace...

John Newton, 1779

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me -
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught -
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear -
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares -
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far -
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me -
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be -
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years -
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise -
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me -
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

happy june 1, 2010!
