The Old Rugged Cross

My favorite hymn! It humbles me. It puts my heart in it's place & reminds me of my heritage. I was pardoned. I am LOVED. It reminds me that it's not just a story in a's REAL and it's a PROMISE. BEAUTIFUL!!!


On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,The emblem of suffering and shame;And I love that old cross where the dearest and bestFor a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,Till my trophies at last I lay down;I will cling to the old rugged cross,And exchange it some day for a crown.
O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,Has a wondrous attraction for me;For the dear Lamb of God left His glory aboveTo bear it to dark Calvary.

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,A wondrous beauty I see,For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,To pardon and sanctify me.

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;Its shame and reproach gladly bear;Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away,Where His glory forever I’ll share.

I cannot believe that it is already March!! Where did February go?? I guess going on an early vacation threw me off a little. Not to mention Daylight Savings Time...

Well, I updated my background, added some current pictures to the sidebar and have a couple of posts floating around in my head. Hopefully I'll get them up over the weekend!

I'm SO excited about Spring Break being next week! Before we left for New Mexico I had started SEVERAL home projects. I plan on getting most of them knocked out over the weekend and then revamping the kid's rooms over Spring Break! We're trying to rearrange and add a play space to the mix...we'll see! It's getting what's in my head to work out in our house!

Look forward to posting pics soon!!
