A year has passed...

As you can see it has been awhile since we have updated this blog. It has almost been a year now. Wow. A lot happened in that year. Especially with me (Holly). I successfully finished my first year of college, and I loved every minute of it. Bob Jones is a great place. I made many wonderful friends,and learned a lot in the process. I learned about people, about business, and most importantly I learned how faithful God is to us when we are walking in his will. It is truly amazing how God will help you when you are trying to live a life for Him. I found this out in little ways this past year. At 1am when I was studying for a test, or waking up early to practice a speech (on 4 hours of sleep). God places people around us to encourage us, to support us, and to guide us in the paths of life. I am thankful for this past year, and for all that God has blessed me with. I know many of you probably don't even keep up with this blog anymore. Since it is what Katie and I call "dead". lol. But I wanted to let you all know that we are both doing great. I have tried to get Katie to keep up with the blog, but she just doesn't seem to find the time either. Who knows, maybe I'll get back to blogging, or maybe not. Either way I hope all of our blogging buddies are doing good. God Bless, ~Holly~

New phases.

Hello to all of our blogger friends! We thought that it was about time to make a blog post before you all think we have disappeared!! :) Well, in truthfulness I guess we have disappeared from the blogoshere. To be honest we haven't had the blogging spirit lately. ): Maybe it's all of the changes we have been and still are going through. Katie will be going into her junior year of high school (home school) this year. Which is a pretty big step in its self. Since I have graduated I now look back and realize just how important those last two years of high school really are. Next week I will begin a new phase in my life. College. I will be attending Bob Jones University. I am really looking forward to it. I know that it want be easy. Nothing worthwhile ever is. However, in the end I feel that a college experience at BJU will not only be beneficial academically but also spiritually. Katie and I both are looking forward to this coming school year. As you can imagine we probably want have much time to blog,but when we do find the time one of us will try to update you on our lives.
Have a great school year!!

The Love of God

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,And pardoned from his sin. O love of God, how rich and pure!How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endureThe saints’ and angels’ song.
When years of time shall pass away,And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray,On rocks and hills and mountains call,God’s love so sure, shall still endure,All measureless and strong;Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—The saints’ and angels’ song. Could we with ink the ocean fill,And were the skies of parchment made,Were every stalk on earth a quill,And every man a scribe by trade,To write the love of God above,Would drain the ocean dry.Nor could the scroll contain the whole,Though stretched from sky to sky.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The fascinating history of this hymn: Fred­er­ick M. Leh­man wrote this song in 1917 in Pas­a­de­na, Cal­i­fornia, and it was pub­lished in Songs That Are Dif­fer­ent, Vol­ume 2, 1919. The lyr­ics are based on the Jew­ish poem Had­da­mut, writ­ten in Ara­ma­ic in 1050 by Meir Ben Isaac Ne­hor­ai, a can­tor in Worms, Ger­ma­ny; they have been trans­lat­ed in­to at least 18 lang­uages. One day, dur­ing short in­ter­vals of in­at­ten­tion to our work, we picked up a scrap of pa­per and, seat­ed up­on an emp­ty le­mon box pushed against the wall, with a stub pen­cil, add­ed the (first) two stan­zas and chor­us of the song…Since the lines (3rd stan­za from the Jew­ish po­em) had been found pen­ciled on the wall of a pa­tient’s room in an in­sane asy­lum af­ter he had been car­ried to his grave, the gen­er­al opin­ion was that this in­mate had writ­ten the epic in mo­ments of san­ity.

"All The Way My Saviour Leads Me".

All the way my Savior leads me,What have I to ask beside?Can I doubt His tender mercy,Who through life has been my Guide?Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,Here by faith in Him to dwell!For I know, whate’er befall me,Jesus doeth all things well;For I know, whate’er befall me,Jesus doeth all things well. All the way my Savior leads me,Cheers each winding path I tread,Gives me grace for every trial,Feeds me with the living Bread.Though my weary steps may falterAnd my soul athirst may be,Gushing from the Rock before me,Lo! A spring of joy I see;Gushing from the Rock before me,Lo! A spring of joy I see. All the way my Savior leads me,Oh, the fullness of His love!Perfect rest to me is promisedIn my Father’s house above.When my spirit, clothed immortal,Wings its flight to realms of dayThis my song through endless ages:Jesus led me all the way;This my song through endless ages:Jesus led me all the way.
