Last week we took a vacation trip to visit my brother and his family who live in Maine. While we were there, we visited the town of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We had an amazing week with family... talking, playing games with the kids, eating good food, being together.

Near to the Heart of God

Near to the Heart of God
words by Cleland McAfee

There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain :
O Jesus, blest Redeemer, 
Sent from the heart of God, 
Hold us who wait before 
Thee Near to the heart of God.

There is a place of comfort sweet,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where we our Savior meet,
Near to the heart of God.

There is a place of full release,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where all is joy and peace,
Near to the heart of God.

How Not to Die

The goal for the Sisters Book Challenge was to read five books. How Not to Die marked the final required book. 

So as a review, I've read...

Sisters Book Challenge
Book 5
How Not to Die by Dr. Jan Garavaglia


Dr. G is a medical examiner in the state of Florida. Through the years, she has seen many cases come through her morgue that could have been prevented if the individual took care of their health, followed the warning signs, and made sensible choices. After seeing so many premature deaths she decided to write a book teaching people tips on how to make wise choices regarding their health.

This book was very interesting. Dr. G tells her readers information like "never ride with your car windows halfway open", "neat freaks live longer", and "your doctor's tie is a dangerous item." All throughout the book she shares stories of some of her cases and her how she came to the conclusion of the cause of death.

I liked that the book was easy to understand and follow.

When Kristin and I announced the challenge, I said that I would more than likely read more than five of the books so don't think that this will be the last post for the challenge. :) In fact, I have another book challenge book borrowed from the library right now.

Precious Lord, Take My Hand

For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ ~Isaiah 41:13

Precious Lord, Take My Hand
words by Thomas Dorsey

Precious Lord, take my hand 
Lead me on, let me stand I am tired, I am weak, I am worn 
Through the storm, through the night 
Lead me on to the light 
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home 

When my way grows drear 
Precious Lord linger near 
When my life is almost gone 
Hear my cry, hear my call 
Hold my hand lest I fall 
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Face to Face

Hymn story found on NetHymnal:
Grant Tull­ar was help­ing with evan­geli­stic meet­ings in Ru­ther­ford, New Jer­sey. He, along with the pas­tor and his wife, did some vis­it­a­tion Sun­day af­ter­noon. They got back to the pas­tor’s home ra­ther late, and sup­per was rushed. Things were put on the ta­ble quick­ly, and ev­er­y­one was in­vit­ed to make his own snack. One of the items set out was an al­most emp­ty jar of jel­ly. Know­ing how much Tul­lar liked it, the pas­tor and his wife both passed it by. Tul­lar ac­cept­ed their kind­ness with a smile, say­ing, “So, this is all for me, is it?” In­stant­ly, the lit­tle phrase “all for me” gripped his thoughts. He went over to the pi­a­no and com­posed on the spot the now fa­mil­iar tune, along with some words—“All for me the Sav­ior suf­fered, all for me He bled and died…” The pas­tor was thrilled. He asked that the song be taught to the peo­ple in the even­ing ser­vice. Tul­lar de­clined, say­ing he want­ed to work on it a bit more. But that ne­ver hap­pened. The next day, a let­ter ar­rived from a Car­rie Breck. She had writ­ten a po­em, and won­dered if Mr. Tul­lar could set it to mu­sic. To his amaze­ment, the me­ter ex­act­ly fit the tune com­posed the even­ing be­fore. The two have been to­ge­ther ev­er since.

“Now we see but a poor reflection…then we shall see face to face.” ~1 Corinthians 13:12

Face to Face
words by Carrie Breck
music by Grant Tullar

Face to face with Christ, my Savior,
Face to face—what will it be,
When with rapture I behold Him,
Jesus Christ Who died for me?

Face to face I shall behold Him,
Far beyond the starry sky;
Face to face in all His glory,
I shall see Him by and by!

Only faintly now I see Him,
With the darkened veil between,
But a blessèd day is coming,
When His glory shall be seen.

What rejoicing in His presence,
When are banished grief and pain;
When the crooked ways are straightened,
And the dark things shall be plain.

Face to face—oh, blissful moment!
Face to face—to see and know;
Face to face with my Redeemer, Jesus Christ
Who loves me so. Refrain
