Just as I am

Just as I am, without one plea,
but that thy blood was shed for me,
and that thou bidst me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, and waiting not
to rid my soul of one dark blot,
to thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

O Lamb of God, I come.
To Your saving grace I run,
to be pure and clean,
to be Yours, my redeeming One
I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
with many a conflict, many a doubt,
fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

O Lamb of God, I come.
To Your saving grace I run,
to be pure and clean,
to be Yours, my redeeming One
I come.

Just as I am, thou wilt receive,
wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
because thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Today was even warmer than yesterday, so I have some more pictures of our outdoor fun...this time Sarah, Karah, and Judah accompanied Moriah and I. :) I may have to wait to post more later tonight, because we have to leave for a meeting at our church that our pastor requested the whole church to attend...I have no idea what it's for.....


Anyways....Here's the pictures. :D

First activity....tree climbing!! :) Did I mention we have the best (and, mom would probably say, safest *winks*) climbing tree ever? :)

Sarah...copying me......lol






Umm...I think this is Sarah.....it's kind of hard to tell though....we're both wearing a blue shirt today (same shade too!!) lol Ok, I've decided it's Sarah. :)






Sarah again......





Karah, Myself, and Sarah climbing together...don't worry....we never let Karah go higher than where she's pictured. ;)

A great day!!!

Today has been MUCH warmer than usual, so we all had a great time playing outside doing....um...whatever. :) Moriah and I took turns on the swings, climbed one of our trees, and took a walk around the yard....here's some pictures of our "adventures" :) There's quite a few pics......

Moriah in the tree...that tree is soooo much fun to play on!! :)





Posing in front of it.....





Me climbing........





And being a monkey...yes, I still climb like a little kid sometimes! :D





Our beautiful blue sky!!!




A leaf......a magnolia leaf ;)



Moriah on our front porch



Josiah actually joined us for a few minutes, and I was able to get a pretty good picture of him for once. :)



Me...



Moriah swinging..


A couple of pictures with us posing on the front porch.......................




We two oldest sissies together. :) Self-taken, of course....

And, last, but CERTAINLY not least...........Drum roll please..........Here is my absolute favorite picture of the afternoon!!! Wonder if you can tell why........LOL

And now I'm going to stop posting...I need to go and rest my foot for awhile. I got a pretty big splinter in my left foot this morning from our hallway floor, and got most of it out, but it's super sore right now, especially after all the running and climbing I did today! :) Enjoy the pictures!

Girly Girls!

Here's some pictures of my sisters and I. I was bored so I dressed them all up and did portaits, and Moriah did me. :) Then mom got one of all four of us girls together.....I don't think we've had that done since before we moved....lol :) Hmmm.....I think I'll go youngest to oldest. :D


My cute little sister Karah. :)

Sarah...I think I like her pictures the best. :)

Moriah....in this one I was experimenting with the lighting in the room... I love this one!! :)

Isn't she a wonderful model?? :) My personal favorite..... ;)


Me.........
And me and my sissies. :) Sarah, me holding Karah, and Moriah. :) Can you tell who looks like who? lol We always like to joke that we really do have twins in the family...two sets! :)

Well, that's all for now......Not much is going on today, so I'm kind of bored......ho hum...I guess I'll go clean the bathrooms or something....... :)

Great day for braids. :)

Both Sarah and I were in the mood for braids today, and Jeremy was willing to take a picture of the two "twins" in their do. :) Oh, and yes, I did have my hair cut just a few inches. ;)
I think I've pretty much decided to change the name of this blog to Thoughts from my Heart...I like it Sam! :) Thanks for all the suggestions!! The link to here will be the same, just the name will be different.....;)

Pictures of our snow...

These are a few pictures of when it snowed here last Thursday. It was still snowing when I took the pictures, so there was still a lot more snow that hadn't fallen, but i didn't feel like venturing back out there after having my snow cream. ;)


Buddy loved his first sight of snow!! :) He kept eating it off the ground, and staring up at the sky....he was soo funny! :) We didn't really go outside to play in it, but we kids did get to throw a few snowballs at one another. :D


Our front yard was covered. :) The houses you see are our neighbors' houses.

Jeremy was playing around with Buddy and throwing snowballs for him to catch. Buddy's in the background eating more snow. :)


Today has been mostly uneventful, unless you count the hours we've spent searching for my mom's keys!!! :( My mom needed to go to the store this morning, but when she went to get her keys off the hook, they weren't there! The last person who had them was Jeremy, but he can't remember what he did with them. *wails* She was able to use the spare van key to go to the store, but we still have to find her other keys......the house key, keys to the van and my dad's car, plus the one to the shed are all on it!! :( I, and everyone else, have looked all over the house, even behind the washer and dryer, yet we still can't find them. The boys looked around outside, and in the van and shed, but of course......no keys. Of course they'll probably turn up in a place that we least suspect them to be.... lol

This morning and afternoon, when I was done with school, and while I wasn't helping look for the keys or doing dishes, I cleaned out my desk and my trunk, and every other corner of our room that's mine. :D You can actually see the top of my desk, find the buckets of foam shapes in my trunk, see the floor under my bed, see the books on the bookshelf....you get the picture. ;) And that prompted Moriah to clean her corners, so now our whole room is spotless! :) We're both self-proclaimed neat freaks, so you can imagine just how clean our room gets when we finally decide to clean it! :D lol

I'm off to do.....well, I don't know what I'll do! Maybe get a package together for one of my penpals...I love putting together packages! :)
