Praise Him!

  Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights. 

 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. 

   Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. 

  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. 

Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. 

Psalms 148:1-5

Draw Me Nearer

 I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me,
 But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
 And be closer drawn to Thee. 

 Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
 To the cross where Thou hast died; 
  Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, 
  To Thy precious, bleeding side. 

 Consecrate me now to Thy service Lord, 
  By the pow'r of grace divine; 
   Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope, 
   And my will be lost in Thine.

O, the pure delight of a single hour 
That before Thy throne I spend, 
 When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God, 
 I commune as friend with friend!


There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea; 
 There are heights of joy that I may not reach 
Till I rest in peace with Thee. 


   Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord, 
  To the cross where Thou hast died; 
      Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord, 
       To Thy precious bleeding side. 

          Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, 
        having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, 
   and our bodies washed with pure water. 
~Hebrews 10:22

T-Shirt Quilt

 I started on this quilt for one of my younger brothers a couple 
years or so ago, and recently pulled it out again in hopes of getting it
 completed soon.  I used some of my brother's favorite old t-shirts, and 
a pair or two of his camouflaged pants.

I would have to say that it's more for the memories than for good looks,
but has a lot of memories for my mom especially. :)

Now, to just get it finished... :)
