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."
