No News is Good News
Not much is happening, so I’ll keep the weekend update short. Tucker still has a fever and I still don’t. Sorry buddy, but that is good news in my book. The girls played on their water slide today and it was outside the 2nd story window of our bedroom. I was able to watch them play with cousin Laney and hear the laughs and giggles coming through the open window. We bought the water slide last year at 50% off and still debated the purchase. I can definitely say it’s been a good buy as they continue to get a lot of use out of it. I’ve included a picture and a video of the fun.
On Monday I will see Dr. Cripe. I’ll also get my last does of chemo for cycle 1a. I’ll post another update on Monday night to keep you in the loop. Until then I want to post the lyrics to In Christ Alone. If you’ve never heard the song, give it a listen. I’ll post later in the week about why I like the song so much. Especially the first and last verses.
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.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry 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 pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.
