The Wonder of It All

        There's the wonder of sunset at evening.
        The wonder as sunrise I see;
        But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul
        Is the wonder that God loves me.

Treasure Hunter

I took this pic at the Pirate Display at Union Station, Kansas City, int 2012.
I was reading a story about a modern-day treasure hunter who put his life savings into looking for a sunken cargo ship. He had done a lot of research and was sure he had figured out where the ship had sunk so many years ago.

A distraction occurred when he stumbled upon a few bars of silver, and stopped seven miles short of where he was originally headed. He then went into debt and spent fruitless years scouring that area but finding nothing else.

At length, he decided to go to his original destination, and there he found the sunken ship with millions of dollars in gold and silver still in the original treasure chests.

Father, You have called me to love You and love the treasure you place right in front of me every day. I pray that I don't detour from any plan other than Your original Treasure Map!

May your spiritual experience become richer as you see more and more fully God's great secret, Christ Himself! For it is in Him and in Him alone, that men will find all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Colossians 2:3

Record Warm Days in Southern Indiana

Our ladies' Bible Study is this morning. We are in Romans 8.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,
who do not walk according the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free
from the law of sin and death.

The Name

He created all there is with His own hands
And yet the smallest need He understands
There is no other name
No other name but JESUS

Wading into You

Oh, my Lord, You have called me to come
You have drawn me with Your cords of love
To the waters, into Your waters
Where Your glory comes wave after wave

I’m wading into Your presence
I’m wading into You
Deeper and deeper I go in Spirit and in truth
I’m wading into your presence
I’m wading into You
But the further I go
I find I must have more of You

Written by my son Cameron Hill 9-7-07

As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;

Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls;
All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.
The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime;
And His song will be with me in the night,
A prayer to the God of my life.

Psalm 42:1-2, 7-8
