Take My Life

This song really got to me today, I love the lyrics. They are so simple but so profound. May it comfort those who need comforting, and encourage those who need encouraging.


Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet and let them be,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose.

Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart; it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne.

Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure-store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee
.

I looked through your blog until I could find pictures of your adorable Shiba Inu, Moxie! Aren't these dogs just precious? We absolutely love having Kaiko around! I also noticed that you grew up close to where my husband, Patrick, grew up. Did you know Colin and Erica from high school or from A&M? Patrick was friends with both of them when they were in classes together at Klein. Anyway...just thought it was interesting.

Okay, Patrick and Jessica...you have no idea how close you are to the fact that Jen knows Colin and Erica. :-) Small, small world, I tell you! Jen, love the words to that song. So encouraging!
