Sisters


I love my littlest sister!

More Love to Thee

More love to thee, O Christ, more love to thee! 
Hear thou the prayer I make on bended knee. 
This is my earnest plea: More love, O Christ, to thee; 
more love to thee, more love to thee!


Once earthly joy I craved, sought peace and rest; 
now thee alone 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 sorrow do its work, come grief and pain; 
sweet are thy messengers, sweet their refrain, 
when they can sing with me: More love, O Christ, to thee; 
more love to thee, more love to thee!


Then shall my latest breath whisper thy praise; 
this be the parting 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!

Trading a Day of Your Life...

It's been a while since I last posted...a long while. Anyway, I came across this quote the other day and really liked it...so I thought I'd share it here.

"This is the beginning of a new day. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes the day will be gone forever - leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good, not evil; success, not failure, in order that I may not regret the price I paid for it."
