He Has The Whole World In His Hands

Many of us who attended Sunday School as little kids grew up singing the song “He’s got the whole world in His hands” – a very melodious tune that has the capability of taking over one’s mind completely.  Even now, as old as I am, I cannot help myself each time I remember the song.  I find myself humming the tune beneath my breath for days at a stretch.  I sleep humming and I wake up humming.  The downside is…
