Lead Me To The Cross- Hillsong

Savior I come
Quiet my soul
remember

Redemptions hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom

Everything I once held dear
I count it all as lost

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and trialed
Human

The word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you're risen

Everything I once held dear
I count it all as lost

Lead me to the cross
Where your loved poured out
Lead me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself I belong to you
Oh, Lead me!
Lead me to the cross

To your heart
To your heart
Lead me to your heart
Lead me to your heart

Lead me to the cross
where your loved poured out
Lead me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself I belong to you

Lead me....
Lead me...

Lead me to the cross
Where your loved poured out
Lead me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself I belong to you

Oh Lead me
Lead me to the cross.

Ninety Years Young

Today we celebrated my Mimi's 90th birthday with over 50 people at my parents house in Little Rock! It was so fun to see all the many people who love my grandmother as much as I do. Here are a few highlights from the afternoon:

1. My eight year-old cousin, Jake, dressed up in a sport coat, tie, and captains hat and asked all the guests if they needed anymore cake or drinks. We had to tell him that, unlike people in our family, most people are not gluttons and will limit themselves to only one piece.

2. One of my grandmother's oldest and dearest friends thought Reid's dad was my husband.

3. Thirty minutes into the party my grandmother declared that she couldn't talk to anymore people. I guess you can say those things when you are ninety.

4. My mom trying to talk to one of my grandmother's friends, "Aunt" Mil, and telling her that she would love to get together sometime. The conversation, according to my cousin, went as follows:

Mom: We must get together sometim…

The Lord Provides

I have an over whelming joy about the provisions of my King. I think of the many changes that have come over the past year and realize how blessed I am.

It all began with my wedding day and our move to Dallas. After Reid and I spent four years in a long distance relationship, we were so thrilled to be starting our own grown-up life together as a new family.

Shortly after we returned from our honeymoon, we found out that my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Because of my mom's struggles with Alzheimer's, my dad is her primary caregiver. This scare sent me over the edge. I had come to terms with my mom being sick, but my dad, too? Thankfully, the Lord is more loving than I chose to believe and used that time to restore my faith in Him. After three months of radiation and seven months of waiting for results, we learned that my dad's PSA (prostate-specific antigen) was at .03 with zero being the best. Whew! He will be continually monitored for any recurrence.

During this ti…

An Interesting Survey

I thought this survey was really interesting. I was having a hard time pin-pointing which Presidential Candidate I support. There are so many interesting platforms, and with this being the second election in which I have been old enough to vote, I want to make it count! Below are my results, which state that I believe in the Republican Party.
