As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Gathering the Moments of May



 ♪ ♫  Take my moments and my days,
let them flow in ceaseless praise.  ♪ ♫
  
~ for listening ~

Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.


Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.
Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King.



Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages for Thee.
Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold.




Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine.
Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.


Take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.


Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.



♪ ♫   Ever, only, all for Thee.  ♪ ♫


Lyrics of the hymn "Take My Life and Let it Be" by Frances Ridley Havergal

  2. Beautiful post, Cheryl! I love the family photos, as always, and it is so true that a life dedicated to God gives our lives meaning and purpose and fulfillment that nothing else can equal. To think that the Creator God of the universe loves us and reaches out to us in His Son. Amazing grace.
