I will sing and make a melody!"

A Road To Remember...

Today is my 16th birthday.
The Lord has blessed me with SO much in sixteen years. So, to give you an idea of the glorious blessings I've received, I'll name 16 things He has given me over my 16 years:

1 A faith that keeps growing

2 A Father who loves me, who teaches me the Lord's word through his examples, and who serves our King.

3 A Mother who loves me, who leads me in the paths of womanhood, and who serves our King

4 3 BEAUTIFUL sisters who help me to learn, grow, enjoy, and cherish this life.

5 A home, a place where laughter lives, where sorrows are shared, where memories are made...

6 An opportunity to learn, and be taught by my Lord and parents without fear

7 Music that lifts the spirit, calms the fears, and teaches me perseverance

8 The beauty of life, and the sorrow of death, the endless peace we have in knowing God

9 Two sisters who live many miles away, Shleida and Shelove

10 A wonderful puppy, Ellie :)

11 Daffodils in spring, snow in winter, a fire-red autumn, and a warm, peaceful summer

12 Good health, and mercy when times did get rough

13 A love for home, family, children, cooking, sewing, and cleaning (sometimes) :)

14 His holy word, a guide and answer to all questions

15 The joy of knowing I'm part of His coming Kingdom

16 The Sixteen years I've had to learn, grow, fall, continue, achieve, aspire, remember, and love, in this world.

" God gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57

Down in the green and shady bed
A modest violet grew
Its stalk was bent, it hung its head,
As if to hide from view.

And yet it was a lovely flower,
It's color bright and fair.
It might have graced a rosy bower,
Instead of hiding there.

Yet there it was content to bloom,
In modest tints arrayed,
And there it spreads its sweet perfume,
Within the silent shade.

Then let me to the valley go,
This pretty flower to see,
That I may also learn to grow,
In sweet humility.
~Jane Taylor "The Violet"

" For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted." Luke 14:11

What Wonderous Love Is This?...

...O my soul, O my soul,

What wonderous love is this?
O my soul...
What wonderous love is this? That caused the Lord of bliss,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul,
For my soul,...
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul...

It's SO hard to believe that Resurrection Sunday is tomorrow!
I have been blessed in many, many different ways is my life, but I don't think any of them compare to how blessed mankind was on the day God the Father gave His one and only Son to die for our wretched sins. May the risen King be praised!

" He humbled himself and became obedient to death- even death on a cross." Philippians 2:8

" The blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin." 1 John 1:7

When I survey the wonderous cross,
On which the Prince,
Of glory died,
My richest gain,
I count but loss,
And pour contempt,
On all my pride...

Have a blessed day,
