I Have Such a Short Memory, So You Keep Reminding Me

I turned on Pandora this morning as I was doing dishes and this was the first song that came on. It caught my attention with the first line about “chill and cold and flakes of snow” (for obvious reasons), but as I listened, the rest of the lyrics struck me, too. I really do have such a short memory it seems when it comes to remembering the ways God encounters me every day. One minute He’ll reveal Himself and the next minute I’m distracted by the world again. So He keeps revealing Himself, keeps reminding me.

“Scenes” – Charlie Hall

Chill and cold and flakes of snow
Ice and sleet, and frost and cold
Each storm cloud and thunderbolt
Lifts my mind to You

Every work and every power
Every second of every hour
Fall of dew in sweet rain showers
Lifts my mind to You

The summer wind, fire and heat
Autumn leaves and blooms of spring
Ocean waves and mountain streams
Lifts my mind to you

I see you in every scene
I bet you are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So you keep reminding me of you
I see you in every scene
I bet you are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So you keep reminding me of you

As I lay me down to sleep
As I walk on city streets
As I laugh with friends and feast
It lifts my mind to you

As my children play and run
In the news with wars and guns
In the church where songs are sung
It lifts my mind to you

Deep inside the beggar’s eyes
As for sweet love I fight
On the radio at night
It lifts my mind to you

I see you in every scene
I bet you are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So you keep reminding me of you

I see you in every scene
I bet you are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So you keep reminding me of you

Painting pictures of your love
You lift my mind up
Reminding me of you
My heart comes alive

Painting pictures of your love
You lift my mind up
Reminding me of you
My heart comes alive

I see you in every scene
I bet you are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So you keep reminding me of you

I see you in every scene
I bet you are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So you keep reminding me of you
