Normal. Yeah right. What is Normal anyways? it seem just as you are about to get used to things up pops change and off you go again. Oh well the Lord never puts us through useless struggles.

He is still good even when we aren't,
He still loves us when we are unlovable,
He is still faithful when we are unfaithful.
It just doesn't make sense.
My mind cannot comprehend it.

Mom and Dad are returning from their trip to Mexico tomorrow. I can't wait! Running a household is fun but this 17 year old is not meant to raise 4 younger siblings. But its been good. The Lord has richly blessed us with a Church family that cares. we've gotten about 3 meals brought to us. and this morning at our ladies breakfast I got special "good morning"s and "how are you"s I felt special.


Here is Love

Here is love, vast as the ocean,
Loving-kindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten,
Throughout Heav’n’s eternal days.

On the mount of crucifixion,
Fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers,
Poured incessant from above,
And Heav’n’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love.

Let me all Thy love accepting,
Love Thee, ever all my days;
Let me seek Thy kingdom only
And my life be to Thy praise;
Thou alone shalt be my glory,
Nothing in the world I see.
Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me,
Thou Thyself hast set me free.

In Thy truth Thou dost direct me
By Thy Spirit through Thy Word;
And Thy grace my need is meeting,
As I trust in Thee, my Lord.
Of Thy fullness Thou art pouring
Thy great love and power on me,
Without measure, full and boundless,
Drawing out my heart to Thee.

    "The Lord puts us through useless struggles?" I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that. I think every struggle has a purpose even if we never see it. Get back to me on that. Blessings!

    Sorry I must have been thinking to fast and getting ahead of myself. I meant to put the word "never" in there. The Lord makes no mistakes.

    Yeah, thanks. I was thinking, "This is Melodie. She should know better than that." Blessings.
