My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:26)

Cousins and more!
Good Friday, Tom and Lydia and children came to town (and our house!) for lunch and to spend the afternoon. They'd recently accepted a new job for Tom - in California! - and this was our last visit before the move. It was sweet to have the little girls together again and Abigail had a great time with Gabriel who seems like such a big boy. Mid-afternoon Mom and Dad Mee and Nathan, Andrew and Karen arrived and Charlotte stopped by too. Afraid the little people captured nearly all the attention. =) and Mom and Dad Mee and kids came to town!
Before the throne of God above I have a strong and perfect plea A great High Priest whose name is Love Who ever lives and pleads for me My name is graven on His hands My name is written on His heart I know that while in heaven He stands No tongue can bid me thence depart No tongue can bid me thence depart
When Satan tempts me to despair And tells me of the guilt within Upward I look and see Him there Who made an end of all my sin Because the sinless Savior died My sinful soul is counted free For God, the Just, is satisfied To look on Him and pardon me To look on Him and pardon me
Behold Him there, the risen Lamb My perfect, spotless righteousness The great unchangeable I AM The King of Glory and of Grace One with Himself I cannot die My soul is purchased by His blood My life is hid with Christ on high With Christ my Savior and my God With Christ my Savior and my God
