I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine
That he should extend his great love unto such as I
Sufficient to own, to redeem and to justify
I think of his hands, pierced and bleeding to pay my debt
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet

I hope everybody had an amazing Easter! I got to spend lots of time with family, and I always love the plethora of Easter lessons we get at church.
Today seems like a fitting day to share gratitude, so here it goes. I'm grateful:
- for the life that my Savior lead, and the example he provided for me to follow
- that my Father loved His children enough to send His Only Begotten to suffer for the sins of His children and die that they might live, and that the Son was willing to do so
- that I can always repent of my sins, and start anew
- to know that I am a precious child of God, whom he wants to come back home
- that my Redeemer lives!
P.S. On a very different note, I shared my DIY ruffle shirt over at the DIY Show Off! Check it out here.
