How deep the Father’s Love



How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
And make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory
Behold the man upon the cross
My sin upon His shoulder
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

12 months in 7 days

It all began with a homework assignment…
to create a 12 month calendar. In betwixt everything else I had to do.
Up to this point I hadn’t been very inspired by my homework
projects, which poses a terrible dilemma…
But this was different
I was able to choose my own theme…yippee!
Can you guess what I chose?
TEA!!! Or tea cups…which ever makes you happiest
But then there was this one. A bicycle mixed with tea cups?
My thoughts on the deviation from the theme...
Who needs to be drinking hot tea in the middle of July?
We should all be out riding our bikes
Winking smile.
I spent 7 days building this 12 month calendar only to get to class
and find out that I had to spend 3 more hours fixing a problem that
took me 7 hours to figure out.

And it all began with Miss V.’s Halloween. Looking through
my pictures this one caught my eye so I decided to use it
as my jumping off point.

Then build around it.
Now I just need to print it, then turn it in.
And I WANTED to go back to school.
