Joy, Joy, Joy Joy, Down In my Heart....

I have so much Joy in my Heart since starting this blog!  I find great peace in sharing God's Word!  I was looking for Hymns on YouTube this morning and found this sweet Little Girl who is Just running over with Joy at the age of 4 years.  I could not help but be filled with Joy just watching her!  She also sings Amazing Grace and more.  What a joy that God gave her such amazing talent to share His word.  Truly a miracle!
  I have many Bibles in my home and I use them all to cross reference and make sure I am getting the right words as translated to English from the original languages in which they were written.  Cross referencing keeps opening more doors for you to study and becomes a never ending teaching tool.  We are so blessed to have so many "helps" to know God's truth and plan for our lives.
  Historically, Jesus is recorded as a religious leader who was put to death.  If you are a non-believer, you cannot deny the words recorded in history aside from the Bible.  Jesus is real, He did live and die for us.  I am always touched by the words of "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross".  This praise song can move me to tears. ...."see from His hands, his head, his feet-Sorrow and Love flow mingled down, Love so amazing so complete, Demands my soul, my life, my all."  My ALL.  This certainly is true for me.  I often play this song on my piano and put great feeling into it as my emotions are pulled from within me.
  What are some of your favorite hymns that really speak to your heart?  I will bet they are the same as mine.  Do comment and tell me.
  Praying for everyone on our prayer lists, especially for those who are suffering from cancer.  So many of our family and friends are afflicted and God will hear their cries and take mercy upon them.

                 THOUGHTS AND PLEAS
                           by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart©
When God shall lift me from my plight
 Out of the darkness into the light
I shall rejoice and praise with all my might
And sing of Thee both day and night
   Because God still answers prayers.

I have all the faith I need
 Because for me the Savior bleeds
Let me make a joyful noise unto thee,
 All I really ask is to serve thee,
In the best way you see fit.
 By my strength or by my wit
  Let me always be a witness to thee.
 A "Crown of Thorns" plant with a wasp on it.  My Mom gave me a small cutting from her plant many years ago and from it, my plant grew into a bush!  I love it for many reasons but the red blossoms represent Christ's drops of blood from His crown of thorns.  My Mom has been gone for 10 years now.  I miss her very much.  But she is blooming in Heaven now I know....

Please come back and visit again SOON!  I love having you come!  God Bless and have a wonderful, blessed weekend.  If you have special prayer concerns, please comment or e-mail to me.  Thank you!

Such an awesome post! Your poems are wonderful and I love the plant that your mother shared with you. The little girl singing brings a smile to my face. We sang that when we were young in church. It amazes me that she is so gifted at such a young age! One of my favorite hymns is "What A Friend We Have In Jesus." Such powerful words and one that mother loved very much. It's always a delight to visit your blog Kerrie. Hope you enjoy your day.

What a great picture of the wasp on the flower! I have never seen a crown of thorns! I have many favorite hymns, my husband plays piano and accordian at church, so I get to hear him practice the at home, as well. I do like some of the newer ones, like "Amazing Love", "How Great Is Our God", also "If I flee On Morning Wings". also "Softly And Tenderly", "Come thou fount..."

What a beautiful blog and testimony; I'm so glad Marydon sent you to Thistle Cove Farm so I could visit you! Love the old hymns, any music that glorifies God is good with me. The crown of thorns is amazing; God is truly awesome and that's the ONLY way I'll use the word "awesome" -smile-.
