Exactly one year ago, (March 13th:), I left for Arizona on a week-long trip with some dear friends to attend their family's church Campmeeting.  Here are some of my most treasured memories of that wonderful journey!
(Click here to read my previous posts on the trip)
 
 
How deep the Father's love for us 
How vast beyond all measure 
That He would give His only Son 
        To make a wretch His treasure       
 

How great the pain of searing loss 
The Father turns His face away 
As wounds which mar the chosen One 
Bring many sons to glory 
 

Behold the Man upon a cross 
My guilt upon His shoulders 
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice 
Call out among the scoffers 
 

It was my sin that held Him there 
Until it was accomplished 
His dying breath has brought me life 
I know that it is finished 
 

I will not boast in anything 
No gifts, no powr's, no wisdom 
But I will boast in Jesus Christ 
His death and resurrection 
 
Why should I gain from His reward? 
I cannot give an answer 
But this I know with all my heart 
His wounds have paid my ransom

Wonderful pictures, Kellie! And what a neat poem--or is it a hymn?
 
I love that first picture of the mountains/craggs with just a bit of snow on top, and I declare I can see a face in the middle of that red-and-white rock in the picture with you and the little boy. Hee! Looks like you had a good time.
 
God bless,

Thanks!  Yes this is a hymn that we sang during this trip, so I thought of it when I made the post.
Someday I hope to have this one included on the C.D I am hoping to record... someday=)

I know it.  It doesn't seem real, somehow. . . how could a year go by so fast?  And so many things have changed - mostly for the better, praise God!
 
Sounds good to me!
