All Things New...

I love catching glimpses of the Lord making all things new!

Look what "burst forth" in our backyard after just a few days out of town (Reminds me of a line in the hymn, In Christ Alone... see link at the bottom of this post):

This smaller creature was also found:
Okay, I have to add a little joke here in honor of my cousins on my mom's side of the family...
What did the snail say when he went for a ride on the back of a turtle?    Weeeee!!!!

There is nothing like fresh flowers to bring joy!  
The window box we planted over the weekend:

In Christ Alone
This song is very special to us; we sang it at Warren's funeral service.  So grateful that neither Warren nor any of God's children can ever be plucked from His hand.
(Email subscribers, click here to listen to the song.)

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
