Brother Visiting!

I am so very excited today because my brother, Reid, is coming to visit!!! He is staying with us through Tuesday because it is his spring break. I haven't seen him since Christmas, so I am very excited about it. We don't have anything special planned but I know it will be quality brother and sister time! I am sure we will talk about all our HILARIOUS childhood memories. I am so blessed to have a wonderful brother and a close relationship with him. It is hard to be so far away, but I am so glad we have been able to stay close. I'm sure I will have plenty of pictures to post after his visit!

Faith Fridays

I love listening to praise music at work. While listening this song came on and it is my all time favorite! Just think on the words...
In Christ Alone
by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

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:
Till 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 life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
an ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand!
