Keep Me Near

“For outside of You I’m lost. For Your presence is my joy.
Draw me in the tide of Your will, Break my selfish nature and pride,
Lead me as I yield myself to You. Mould a life of loyalty to You.
Keep me near Your heart.

“Rescue me in weakness of mind,
When distraction conquers me.
Keep me in Your shadow, O Lord,
Give me grace to follow where You lead.

“Keep me near Your heart,
Keep me near Your heart.

“For You are everything that is beautiful,
Keep me near Your heart, Keep me near Your heart,
And You are all that I long to see in me.
You are everything that is beautiful;
Breathe Your desires in me.

“Form in us a heart of divine beauty,

“For Your presence is my joy.
Break my selfish nature and pride,
Mould a life of loyalty to You.
Keep me near Your heart.”

Cancer still sucks

Even after 5 years of clear scans and checkups, each one is still nerve wracking. Now we wait til we meet with the oncologist to hear the results. With each appointment we continue to trust God. Thank you for your prayers. We’re also praying for our friends’ battle. This fight is not yet won. We praise God as the ultimate healer.

I got my haircut today. The salon owner cuts my hair and always does a fabulous job. As she helps another customer, I ended up with TWO assistants drying my hair.
