"Come Ye Disconsolate"- Edwin Hawkins & the Hebrew Boys



It has been a long day, so this evening I have been listening to this song over and over. How true it is that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. I am so grateful that God has chosen to save me and that He freely gives His grace and mercy to make it through this earthly journey.

A Quote

"Knowing that you are living between the already and the not yet tells you where you are located in God's story of redemption...Already God has given us his Word as our guide. Already he has sent his Son to live, die and rise again for our salvation. Already he has given us his Spirit to live within us. But the world has not yet been restored. Sin has not yet been completely eradicated. We have not yet been formed in the perfect likeness of Jesus. Suffering, sadness, and death are not yet no more. It is hard to live in the middle, but that is exactly where we live. We live in a world that is still sadly and terribly broken."
-Paul David Tripp

A Quote for Mother's Day

How could anyone dare to suggest or say that working at the huge task of making a home and carrying on through years and years of ups and downs is not one of the very few truly worthwhile ways to spend our energies and gifts in human life?

2011 Reading

North and South
by
Elizabeth Gaskell

"If the world was full of perplexing problems she would trust, and only ask to see the one step needful for the hour."

"Thinking has, many a time, made me sad, darling; but doing never did in all my life."

"But I should say that the child was getting a better and simpler, and more natural education stopping at home, and helping her mother, and learning to read a chapter in the New Testament every night by her side, than from all the schooling under the sun."

"And now she had learnt that not only to will, but also to pray, was a necessary condition in the truly heroic."
