How Deep The Father's Love For Us

Stuart Townend - How Deep The Father's Love For Us (Story Behind the Song)

How deep the fathers love for us (instrumental music)


How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss-
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held His there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life-
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain Hos reward? 
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart-
His wonds have paid my ransom. 

-Stuart Townend

I love the tune to this song and I am starting to learn the words.

Marie's Wedding

The High Kings - Marie's Wedding

I have not listened to many of the songs from the High Kings, but when friends gather at occasions Mari's Wedding is one of the songs we dance to. It's a really catchy tune. :)

Our New Rooster and Another Surprise!!

In my former post, I mentioned we have 5 ducks and 12 chickens. Since these chickens are all hens, my dad and my siblings went to get a rooster, who is pictured below. The interesting part is when they got home, they came home with 2 bunnies that were 3 weeks old for free. How could they pass up such an opportunity? Well, Ferdinand is on the right and Isabella is the bunny on the left. Arent't they adorable?

There are times it is easy and times I will be learning how to love the Lord with all my heart and accept His version of goodness.

Happy Father's Day!!

Our Thanks, O God, for Fathers

Our thanks, O God, for fathers who follow in Thy way,
And who, with glad and trusting hearts, exalt Thee every day.
Our thanks, O God, for fathers who show by word and deed,
Commitment to Thy will and plan, and Thy commandments heed.
Our thanks, O God, for fathers who meet Thee often in prayer,
And who, for all life's toil and care, find strength and wisdom there.
How blessed are the children who in their fathers see, 
The tender Father love of God, and find their way to Thee.
Lois S. Johnson
I came upon this hymn as I was looking for new songs to learn. Thank you to my Papa for being a wonderful provider, kind and loving leader, teacher of God's word and walking by God's example.
