In Christ Alone

"In Christ alone my hope is found."
How true. Just yesterday I found out that one of my friends from school died in a tragic kayaking accident. I was saddened, but know that the two girls are in a much better place. Last night my sister and I shared the song "In Christ Alone" with our church family. The last verse really made me stop and think.
"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 fear 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."
I will miss you Carissa, but I know that you are in a much better place. I pray that her testimony will continue on. The link below is an online article about their deaths.

Stealling the dough

Take time to laugh....
Mom is making cookies, little sis is helping. I watch. I see chocolate chips and brown sugar... mmmm. As soon as their backs are turned, that is when I strike... Oh no! Little one saw me! I pull a finger silently to my mouth. She giggles. Quick as a flash I grab a spoonful of dough and shove it in my mouth in time to dodge Mom's gaze. Little one laughs, as do I ... Mom saw it all (they really do have eyes in the back of their heads!). I laughed... "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine" Proverbs 17:22
