We got a cool gift this Christmas from Mark's sister Rebecca. It's a Flipvideo, a little recorder to capture and make fun movies! I finally got around to downloading the clips we've made so far.

"Jesus Paid it All"

 Sometimes (okay all the time) I just need to be reminded of the simple truths that are the foundation of my life. "Jesus Paid It ALL" is what gives true and lasting hope. Lately, I haven't been sleeping too well, and the Lord is good to call me to Himself in the wee morning hours! I was writing an email to a friend just now who is in a super hard trial and was reminded of this song we sing at our church. Thankful that this truth is always matter what season we are experiencing. This was written way back in the 1800's and is still precious and true today! Praise the Lord, for He has done the impossible-reconciling man to Himself, only through the precious blood of His Son! May our hearts worship the true living King and humbly embrace all His harder providences in our lives...knowing it's producing a peaceful fruit of righteousness (Hebrews 12:11)...for the praise of His glorious name!

Jesus Paid it All
-by Elvina M. Hall, 1865

1. I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

2. For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.

3. And now complete in Him,
My robe, His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.

4. Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

5. When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.

6. And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.
