Brrr.....Winter in the woods

Late Fall in my Neck-of-the-Woods

Early Spring in my Neck-of-the-Woods

I am a very ordinary wife and mother of a bunch of children living out God's unusual calling on my life. I have been married to my sweetheart, Tim, since I was 23,  homeschooled our children from start to finish, and now blogging as my nest rapidly empties out. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul, and mind and hope to radiate that love to my family, friends, and those I meet online and offline. I enjoy everything having to do with keeping my home a 'wholehearted home' for my family and others who venture to our neck-of-the-woods.

I hope to share what I have learned with those who stop by. Grab a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or sweet tea, and some chocolate and relax a spell with me!! Drop in often as I like company out here in my little clearing in the woods. 


In Christ Alone!!

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
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save

'Til 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 a life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand

I will stand, I will stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground, all other ground
Is sinking sand, is sinking sand
