And Let My Song Forever Be, My Only Boast Is You

All I Have Is Christ

by Sovereign Grace Music


"I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God's love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ

Hallelujah! Jesus is my life


Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You"








Yes.....

My 3 Littles

My mom says I never blog anymore. Which is half true. Life is busy in a good way. My photo card from Adelyn's birthday is currently sitting in a drawer because I broke it and desperately need to get it fixed!! Anyway, I don't want to miss keeping up with my littles on here since this my only documentation of their lives (Insert crying "help me" emoji.)

I took these pictures on Sunday and thought it would be a great way just to write a little bit about what they are like right now.

ABRAHAM (16 months)

He is the sweetest. I mean look at that face (breakfast on it and all). He is sixteen months and some. He has the cutest big belly. He has the most precious little spirit. We call him a lover baby. He loves everyone and somehow makes everyone feel special. He is a snuggler. We laugh because every nursery we take him to he finds someone who will hold him so he can fall asleep on them. He actually fell asleep on Adelyn the other day. ha! Obviously, he is a "go with the flow" kind of baby which is wonderful!! He can say so much stuff. Too much to list but he says, "danya, ball, dada" pretty much all day. Dayna is the vacuum cleaner that he is obsessed with. He enjoys playing with his sisters so much. He throughly enjoys their attention. He also begs to play outside all of the time and has a big time running around outside. He makes life such a joy; I'm so thankful to God for my sweet baby boy!


ADELYN (5 years)
Adelyn is a hoot. She is so fun and funny, constantly trying to make us laugh. Adelyn is obsessed with food. Like obsessed. Food is always on her radar and she looooves chocolate. She really enjoys art and makes pictures for people all the time when she's at home. Adelyn is a people person. She always wants to be doing something fun with the most amount of people possible and she most always has a blast doing whatever she's doing. 


ANNABELLE (6 1/2 YEARS)
Annabelle is so special. Annabelle enjoys art, art, art and creativity. She is always making things out of things. She also loves numbers and math and is brilliant. She much more enjoys small crowds and one on one time. Annabelle really wants to make people feel special. She overly loves Abraham a lot of the time and enjoys telling everyone what to do. Both girls really enjoy picking out their own outfits and clothes now. :)


I couldn't love these littles any more. I am so blessed and thankful.

He is worth it all.

"Worth It All"
Sung here by Meredith Andrews

All I am Lord here before You
Reaching out for more
You're the promise never failing
You are my reward,
Jesus, You are my reward

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say
You are worth it all

There's no riches or earthly treasure
That will satisfy
Every longing is for You Jesus
Set this heart on fire
Oh, set this heart on fire

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say
You are worth it all
You are worth it all

When I'm there in Your glorious presence
Every knee is bowed before You
Hear the sound of heaven singing
You are worth it all
All the saints cry holy holy
Angels singing worthy worthy
Forever I will shout Your praises
You are worth it all

When I'm there in Your glorious presence
Every knee is bowed before You
Hear the sound of heaven singing
You are worth it all
All the saints cry holy holy
Angels singing worthy worthy
Forever I will shout Your praises
You are worth it all
You are worth it all

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say
You are worth it all
You are worth it all
You are worth it all
Jesus, You're worth it all




Powerful lyrics filled with scripture that speak for themselves. So in love with this song

Heaven


Heaven. It seems so mysterious here on earth doesn't it? However, one thing we know about heaven is that there will be singing. Who knows what the singing will really be like. I cannot even imagine. It will probably be perfect in every way.

Songs that make me dream of what heaven will be like, always grab my heart. There have been a few over the past few years that have had this effect on me.

It's something about how they speak of God. How the worship, the lyrics are all about how awesome, worthy, holy, and powerful He is. 


These songs draw me to the throne of God.

I picture myself singing at the top of my lungs, hands raised high to Him who knows every part of my soul and loves me anyway. Sometimes, I picture myself face planted on the ground, unable to get up because I'm overwhelmed and in awe and sometimes I just want to (and do) burst into tears because of the overwhelming gratitude spilling from of my soul for all He has done for me.


"Grace So Glorious" by Elevation Worship is t
he song that 'has me' right now. The lyrics go like this:

"Beneath the cross of Jesus Christ
No shadow remains for shame to hide
Redemption shone for all to see
Perfection bore our penalty
With a grace so glorious

Immortal day the veil was torn
When mercy donned a crown of thorns
As law gave way to liberty
And freedom for humanity
With a grace so glorious.

Oh, the glory of the Savior's love
Surrounding our surrender
To know forever we are welcomed home

Crowned in glory to glory
Worthy is the Lord
Of all the glory forever
Holy is the Lord
Triumphant praises without end
All hailing the King of righteousness
And every eye beholds the One
Our hearts were undeserving of
With a grace so glorious

Oh, the glory of the Savior's love
Surrounding our surrender
To know forever we are welcomed home

Crowned in glory to glory
Worthy is the Lord
Of all the glory forever
Holy is the Lord

O wondrous day when I will see
The face of Him who ransomed me
I'll fall in worship at His feet
And rise to reign eternally
In a grace so glorious
Oh, in a grace so glorious"


I'm extremely thankful for this glorious grace that I am truly undeserved of and that one day I will stand, or fall before the Lord and be able to sing at least some semblance of this song. "Oh what a wondrous day when I will see, the face of Him who ransomed me."






Listen to Grace so Glorious
