Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
God gave us our greatest gift
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV
O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth! Psalm 8:8 (NASV)
I stand amazed in your presence.
Knowing the majestic wonder of your greatness.
Feeling the touch of your hand,
As you stand beside me, walk with me,
And guide my way.
Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.
Psalm 25:4-5 (NKJV)
The Savior’s Love and Grace
In the quietness and stillness, as we sat,
We heard the power of God’s truth spoken to us.
Understanding the greatness of salvation and recognizing sin,
We felt a renewal of the Savior’s love and grace.
Oh That I Would Ever Wonder
Oh why is it, that I would ever wonder, how You know
Each person’s need, each person’s hurt, each person’s heart.
Why oh why is it that I would ever wonder how You know.
You are so faithful, so true.
Giving constant abiding love.
Unspoken to anyone, You hear the small voices inside the heart.
You hear the cry of Your child.
And in ways so gentle you work, You speak.
We have to listen or we will not hear or see.
The need is met, the heart and the hurts are comforted.
Love is given, love is shown.
Comforting the cry of Your child.
Oh, why is it that I would ever wonder how You know. Gay Nell Olive
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
1 When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of Glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.
2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.
3 See from His head, His hands, His feet,
sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
or thorns compose so rich a crown?
4 Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were a present far too small;
love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.

How do I thank you for coming and being born as a baby.
To give hope, love, grace, mercy and light to all who receive you.
So much love and grace I know you have given to others and to me.
I wonder what it is that I can do to show your love.
Many years you have given me and so thankful for that I am.
Independence is what I long for but it never seems to come.
Maybe acceptance is what I need to do.
Accept Who I Am Today, what I can do today.
Start each day with renewed strength in You.
That the day has been given me to serve You by serving others.
Thank You God, for giving us love and light through your Son.
Give me strength to do all You want me to do.
And to Accept Who I Am Today.
Gay Nell Olive
Thankful for the day Let peace and love surround us
Just to know you are not alone. Just to know someone understands. Someone hears, someone knows. Gives a peace that came from above. That was sent just for you. Hold on to it, it was a gift. Others understand and care. You are not alone.
