Life

Life can be good, great and wonderful.  Life can be joyful, content and fulfilling.

Our life is full of many blessings:

living and traveling in our rig, sharing God’s love with those we come into contact with.

Fellowship with friends, family and other believers.  Playing in the beautiful nature  designed by our Heavenly Father.

Watching how God provides for us in ways we could never imagine.

HEAVEN CAME DOWN AND GLORY FILLED MY SOUL / O what a wonderful, wonderful day

By John Peterson

O what a wonderful, wonderful day – day I will never forget;
After I’d wandered in darkness away, Jesus my Saviour I met.
O what a tender, compassionate friend – He met the need of my heart;
Shadows dispelling, With joy I am telling, He made all the darkness depart.

Chorus:
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul,
When at the cross the Saviour made me whole;
My sins were washed away –
And my night was turned to day –
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!

Born of the Spirit with life from above into God’s fam’ly divine,
Justified fully thru Calvary’s love, O what a standing is mine!
And the transaction so quickly was made when as a sinner I came,
Took of the offer of grace He did proffer – He saved me, O praise His dear name!

Chorus:
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul,
When at the cross the Saviour made me whole;
My sins were washed away –
And my night was turned to day –
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!

Now I’ve a hope that will surely endure after the passing of time;
I have a future in heaven for sure, there in those mansions sublime.
And it’s because of that wonderful day when at the cross I believed;
Riches eternal and blessings supernal from His precious hand I received.

Chorus:
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul,
When at the cross the Saviour made me whole;
My sins were washed away –
And my night was turned to day –
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!


Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!

Psalm 103 1

Life can also be  ugly, uncomfortable and just plain scary.  Life can also be tumultuous and messy.

We have faced many hurdles in our life.  We have been stuck in the valley’s and climbed to the mountain top

And through all the hard times of financial uncertainty, deaths of parents, babies and dear friends, scary health issues,  job changes, filled with worry for the safety of our son, Jamie, and his unit while serving in Iraq for a year and facing the unknown ~  God has been faithful! and has my girlfriend reminds me “He has never failed you yet!”  Thanks Miss Dee!!
