Eternal Hope

Standard

 

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

~Psalm 46:1-2

 

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

~Psalm 40:10

Let your hopes,

not your hurts,

shape your future.”
– Robert H. Schuller

I will not be shaken

Standard

 

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

Psalm 1:3

I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

~Psalm 16:8

MORE LOVE TO THEE, O CHRIST

More Love To Thee, O Christ More love to thee!
Hear thou the prayer I make on bend-ed knee.
This is my ear-nest plea: More Love, O Chris, to thee;
more love to thee,  more love to thee!

Once earth-ly joy I craved, sought peace and rest;
now thee a -lone I seek, give what is best.
This all my prayer shall be: More Love, O Christ, to thee;
More love to thee, more love to thee!

Let sor-row do its work, come grief and pain;
sweet are thy mes-sen-gers, sweet their re-frain,
when they can sing with me: More Love, O Christ, to thee;
More love to thee, more love to thee!

Then shall my lat – est breath whis- per thy praise;
this be the part- ing cry my heart shall raise;
this still its prayer shall be: More Love, O Christ, to thee;
more love to thee, more love to thee!

Him by Elizabeth P. Prentiss 1869

Only one Mother♥

Standard

She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

~Proverbs 31:25-26

Mother!

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one Mother the wide world over.
~ unknown 

“Mother–that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.”

 –T. De Witt Talmage

“A mother’s love is a beacon of light that shines faith, and truth, and prayer; and through the changing scenes of life, her children find a haven there.”

Happy Mother’s Day!!
