Hymn for Sunday-How Sweet & Awesome is This Place   1 comment

How Sweet & Awesome is This Place
Isaac Watts

How sweet and awesome is this place
With Christ within the doors,
While everlasting love displays
The choicest of her stores!

Here every bowel of our God
With soft compassion rolls;
Here peace and pardon bought with blood
Is food for dying souls.

While all our hearts and all our songs
Join to admire the feast,
Each of us cry, with thankful tongues,
“Lord, why was I a guest?

“Why was I made to hear Thy voice,
And enter while there’s room,
When thousands make a wretched choice,
And rather starve than come?”

’Twas the same love that spread the feast
That sweetly drew us in;
Else we had still refused to taste,
And perished in our sin.

Pity the nations, O our God!
Constrain the earth to come;
Send Thy victorious Word abroad,
And bring the strangers home.

We long to see Thy churches full,
That all the chosen race
May with one voice, and heart and soul,
Sing Thy redeeming grace.

New Table Decor   3 comments

Okay! I just realized that I have had my patriotic theme on my table since May!  I have been justifying not changing it because of Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, Summer and then the Olympics.

But I can’t take it anymore!  I am really feeling the need for a change and since September is just around the corner and so is Fall, I decided that my September table should take on a more elegant look…

 

Oh much better!  Have a great holiday weekend and make some changes if you dare…

Airplane Randomness   4 comments

As you all know, I spend a great deal of time on airplanes.  I also spend a great deal of time with my camera.  So, when you combine the two – airplanes and cameras – you can have quite a bit of fun or randomness. 

Here’s how I amuse myself…

Sudoku is my ritual when I first board the airplane. If there is something humorous or interesting on the plane, I will definitely take a picture of it.  For instance, I loved the way my apricot snack looked in the sun.  I cracked up at the “glass” of wine I was served (I couldn’t finish it!)  I was enthralled by the prism the glass produced!

So, what’s so interesting outside the window of a plane?  Isn’t the view basically the same? 

Oh my friends,  it is always awe inspiring looking out the window of an airplane…

Whether it be sunrise or sunset, there’s always clouds, clouds and more clouds!

Sometimes there’s smoke

There’s also the plane itself as well!

So you see – from California to Washington there’s never a dull moment on the airplane and the views are ever changing!

Every view is a constant reminder of how awesome our God is and creation shouts his praise!
