Never a River so Peaceful, while Raging out of Control


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 a 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 has 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 inJesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom







“worth-ship”  or giving worth to something.  Hmm.  So we say we worship God.  We give worth to Him?  That doesn’t seem right.  Maybe it is that in worship we are giving our worth to Him.  Whatever the case. . .

We gathered, we worshipped.
The roof top at night.
Few stars, many city lights.
Some music, some conversation.
Some solutide.

Bible School has been pretty amazing.  My thinking has been challenged and stretched.  What I prayed for is happening, but I didn’t know that it would look like this.  The Spirit of God is working, challenging people.  And God is magnified.  Teachers who didn’t know if they could do it, are thriving.  It’s been an amazing first week.  And here we are at the start of a new week and I’m waiting excitedly to see what the Lord will do.


Moses has been coming to Bible School every night, I believe.



So what do you think of our t-shirts.  I think they’re pretty cool.  I know the designer. :)


My parents and most my siblings (Myron, you’re a sibling) came down for church Sunday morning.  We went out for a picnic lunch, along with two of Chad’s friends Jon and Brandon.  We weren’t out long, but it was cool seeing family again and being out by the river.


And my darling neice.
