01.26.15 “You are my All in All” and more house framing!

i am a child of godSunday, January 25, 2015 – During our Worship Service this morning one of the songs we sang was You are my All in All.  The lyrics for the verses are below (without the chorus)

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all

Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

prayTaking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all

When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

This was originally a choir special, so we sang it often while practicing it.  When I first heard the words that I bolded above, I felt as though those words said exactly how I look at God as my Heavenly Father.  When all in life is void of meaning and I am running totally on fumes, only God can lift me up, fill my cup and give me strength, just like the song says.  Those few small words say so simply what God means to me.  I am never so low or so dry that he is not my all in all.  No one else can do that, only God. It means so much to me that I had to pass the words of this amazing song along to you.

After we got back to Amite from church we had a wonderful visit from my sister, Harriett and brother-in-law George.  This was their first visit and they loved it out here which made Roy and I very happy!  It was a beautiful sunny day perfect for showing them all around and sitting outside visiting and eating King Cake!

Monday, January 26, 2015 –  Roy started early cutting in half the wood stakes used in the slab forming so we can use them for firewood in our new campfire pit. He got a lot cut up.

#60122 -kitchenThe cabinetry and counter top company, D L Cabinetry, sent us a picture this morning of what our kitchen will look like.  Yes it is small but it has everything and since we enlarged the pantry to much larger size we will have all the storage we need.  The only change will be to the end cabinet on the bottom which will go from a 12″ to a 21″ cabinet because we found some more room!!!

The framers arrived again at 7 am this morning. All the interior walls were framed by lunch.

A friend of ours said he couldn’t tell there was a fence between our property and the property next door where the cows are.  That’s because Roy cleared off the property line so well!  I took a new picture today from a different angle where you can see the fence.

I made two more batches of the haystack snacks to go in the Thank You tins for the construction workers. I wanted more in the tins but I had to replace those I nibbled on the last couple of weeks. They are very good and addicting. Plus peanuts and peanut butter are very healthy for my brain!

Roy built a big mound of trees, bushes, and thorny vines on our land just past the culverts and set it on fire. We are sitting out here by the fire right now, enjoying watching it burn and watching the construction workers work on the house.   There are several men working on the house and hearing them shout measurements to each other and discussing their work just warms my heart!

Here’s pictures from their work today.  Great progress made and they say they will start on the roof tomorrow!!  With the interior walls studded and the exterior walls closed in you can get a better idea of the room sizes and they are not as small as I thought they may be!  It will be a  house before we know it!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

    1. Here are the complete words to the song including the stanza. It is so beautiful I wanted you to have all of them. Have a Blessed Day, Rosalyn

      You are my strength when I am weak
      You are the treasure that I seek
      You are my all in all

      Seeking You as a precious jewel
      Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
      You are my all in all

      Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
      Rising up again, I bless Your name
      You are my all in all

      When I fall down You pick me up
      When I am dry You fill my cup
      You are my all in all

      Jesus, Lamb of God
      Worthy is Your name
      Jesus, Lamb of God
      Worthy is Your name

      You are my strength when I am weak
      You are the treasure that I seek
      You are my all in all

      Seeking You as a precious jewel
      Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
      You are my all in all

      Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
      Rising up again, I bless Your name
      You are my all in all

      When I fall down You pick me up
      When I get dry You fill my cup
      You are my all in all

      Jesus, Lamb of God
      Worthy is Your name
      Jesus, Lamb of God
      Worthy is Your name
