More Love to Thee, O Christ ~Hymn

More Love To Thee, O Christ

More love to Thee, O Christ,
More love to Thee!
Hear Thou the prayer I make
On bended knee.
This is my earnest plea—
More love, O Christ, to Thee;
More love to Thee,
More love to Thee!

Once earthly joy I craved,
Sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek,
Give what is best.
This all my prayer shall be—
More love, O Christ to Thee;
More love to Thee,
More love to Thee!

Let sorrow do its work,
Send grief or pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers,
Sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me—
More love, O Christ, to Thee;
More love to Thee,
More love to Thee!

Then shall my latest breath
Whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry
My heart shall raise;
This still its prayer shall be—
More love, O Christ to Thee;
More love to Thee,
More love to Thee!

Words: Elizabeth P. Prentiss, 1856.

Angels and Family

Today is Tuesday August 18th and our word prompt is Angel. When I put in Angel for a word search in the Bible at Bible Gateway it showed 282 results! I’ll share one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament.

Psalm 103:20

Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!

Matthew 13:49:

So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous.

From Maristella:

“Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”
Hebrews 13:1-2 | NIV.

From my sister Vera:

 “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

From Patsystitch:

Psalm 34:7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him and delivers them.

From Happy One:

Hebrews 13:2 KJV

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers:
for thereby some have entertained ANGELS unawares.

It was enlightening to look up verses about angels.

If you found a verse or two or section to share add it in the comments and I’ll share them here.

The photos I’m sharing today all came from our daughter in law, Laura. The photo of the two angels guarding the door is from St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The marble, bronze and gilt bronze monument takes the form of two larger-than-life white marble figures of angels, at either side of a black marble and gilt bronze door over which is inscribed, from the Easter Even Collect, “Through the gate of death we pass to our joyful resurrection.” The Viscounts are separately identified on the elaborate panels on each half of the door, to which crests, the family motto “Virtute et Fide” (“By Virtue and Faith”) and the following poignant biblical texts are added: “Until the day break and the shadows flee away” (from the Song of Solomon 2, 17) and “They that dwell under his shadow shall return” (from Hosea 14, 7). This unusual monument stands in the first recess of the north aisle of the nave.

And now some photos from our kids together on the “Coast” this week.

Addy was counting down the days to see Uncle Joshie and Auntie LoLo.

Auntie and Uncle thought ahead and bought some fun outdoor stay cool toys!

JJ is a fan of water!

Addy loves to play with Uncle Andrew and Auntie Katie. Hope they can keep up with her.

A special little spot to sleep with her little stuffed friends by her side.

I sent along these new face masks for the girls to enjoy straight outta Russia! Love the little photo bomber!

We continue in a hotter pattern here in the Northeastern corner of Washington State. Hope you are keeping cool.

The tulips, Rhody, and Angel are all photos from a tulip garden in Mount Vernon, Washington. The Camellia is from my own yard.

Thanks for stopping by…

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
