How deep the Father's love for us How vast beyond all measure That he should give His only Son To make a wretch His treasure How great the pain of searing loss the Father turns His face away As wounds which mar the Chosen One Bring many sons to Glory
Behold the Man upon the cross My sin upon His shoulders Ashamed I hear my mocking voice Call out among the scoffers It was my sin that held Him there Until it was accomplished His dying breath had brought me life I know that it is finished
I will not boast in anything No gifts, no power, no wisdom But I will boast in Jesus Christ His death and resurrection Why should I gain from his reward? I can not give an answer But this I know with all my heart His wounds have paid my ransom
But this I know with all my heart His wounds have paid my ransom
Love This Song!! It makes me want to shout out the promise to the top of my lungs... I WILL BOAST IN JESUS CHRIST!!! Oh how proud we should be of Him!!!
I have been finished with The Time Traveler's Wife for a while now - I am just very behind on my blog. This book was good, however, you have to trust the author a great deal. There are A LOT of time and place and age differences in the book and if you try to go back and calculate and be sure you see it all straight at every moment you will drive yourself crazy!
Read it and trust it and it will all be good.
It is interesting. There are a few moral dilemmas discussed that were interesting, however would never really come in real life. There is quite some foul language in it - be ware!
I watched the movie after I read it and it was good. It left out, at least, 2 major (in my opinion) characters, one of which was one of my favorites. There is NO way that everything could be put in a movie in any kind of good way though so I guess I understand. SO, moving on. I am now going to start reading a book that is really a compilation of 5 books called The Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers. The 5 books are:
Unveiled - about Tamar
Unashamed - about Rahab
Unshaken - about Ruth
Unspoken - about Bathsheba
Unafraid - about Mary
I plan to read about each person from the Bible first and then read these books. It may take me a while since I am not finding the time I really want to read lately but I think this will be a neat study.
I say "first" in quotes because it was really a half day and parents stayed and had a parent meeting. SO, it wasn't really the first real day.
Everyone was so excited. It was a fun fun Sunshine Smile Day!!
Justus really didn't want his picture taken with his backpack on. He wanted to wear his backpack and as you can see - later with just his drink - he was cheeeeseing it wanting his picture taken - but definitely didn't want both at the same time!
Please note (near the end) the picture of the school first timer!! Go Layne!!
When you see a cute little basket like this you might think "Aww what a sweet little Easter basket" or "what a great little thing for a sweet girl to carry her precious items in when playing" or "this could be like a reusable bag for when the kids are playing grocery store."
However, when you give it to my daughter it suddenly becomes a motorcycle helmet! Surprised you didn't think of that one! :-)
Justus is stealing some hearts. Let. Me. Tell. You!!
He is growing up so so fast. He has the most precious expressions.
He now has a "pout" when he is in trouble and he is trying not to cry.
We went to the fair and he rode every ride we let him ride. BUT he was serious about it. He would smile slightly and want to ride again and obviously liked it, but it was serious. He was not giddy or loud - just smiled. I think he gets this from me. Every time I like something I don't always go crazy. I can smile and say I liked it and am being truthful without jumping up and down for great joy!!
His words are getting better. He is still not saying the letter s or r very well. And he still loves the letter k sound.
For Example: He says "ball" clearly. He says "baby" clearly. However the word banana is "kickynanna." It cracks me up.
When I let him talk on the phone I tell him to say "goodbye" and "I love you" but he always say "bye bye thank you" instead.
I am a Christian woman with the most wonderful husband. He is the absolute perfect man for me. I also have a beautiful daughter and a handsome son. We are blessed! Our family, daily, tries to do God's will and live as He would want, following the example of His Son, Jesus Christ.
"And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You."
