Thank you all who have been faithful to remain with me on blogger. I forgot how much I missed it until I started doing my layout again. This is me playing catch up and when I started this post is was Summer time and now it is October and Fall is here even though it feels like Summer time. Hope all is well and Blessed. God is so good. Hold fast to His word and he will hold fast to you.

A Prayer in Spring
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.

Lyrics by the Whisnants~
Lord I've come today to thank you
not for things I've ever mentioned here before
not for blessings you have given or the joys you've promised are in store
so as I bow before you give me the words to express my deepest thanks not for what you've given but lord for what you took away
You took my guilt and shame all my sinful blame became as yours, you opened wide your hand as a guilty man you wore my crown of thorns you took the death I earned and all that I deserved on Calvary lord thanks for what you've given but most of all thanks for what you took from me
father please forgive me for all the times I've failed to mention this before I've been so concerned with treasures I've went so far as to even ask for more but you've shown me lord what's precious it’s not the things you've given me today for their worth to me as nothing when compared
to what you took away.
You took my guilt and shame all my sinful blame
became as yours, you opened wide your hand as a guilty man you wore my crown of thorns you took
the death I earned and all that I deserved on Calvary lord thanks for what you've given but most of all thanks for what you took form me
you took my guilt and shame all my sinful blame became as your lord thanks for what you've given but most of all thanks for what you took from me.
I am so thankful for what the Lord took for me. He took the sin that I was born with and gave me a clean heart about thirty-four years ago at Old Savannah Baptist church in my home town of Sylva, North Carolina. It was during vacation Bible school. Every time I visit this special church, I can still get that feeling I felt the day the Lord saved me. My memory verse in Bible school that summer was John 3:16 so I do claim it as my life verse. John 3:16~17 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have ever lasting life 17`For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
I miss all my blogger friends but I do try to come by and visit you occasionally. I am weaning myself away slowly from face book. I hope everyone is well and happy. Spring is on the way. I love springtime. I cannot wait to get outdoors :)
