Reflections & Deep Love

Since we're still on the subject of LOVE...
I had a bit of fun taking some Valentines Day pix
(love my little cannon).
Tucked between my pix is my favorite hymn.

jesus knows me collage

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me!
Underneath me, all around me,
Is the current of Thy love
Leading onward, leading homeward
To Thy glorious rest above!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth,
Changeth never, nevermore!
How He watches o’er His loved ones,
Died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth,
Watcheth o’er them from the throne!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Love of every love the best!
’Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
’Tis a haven sweet of rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
’Tis a heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to Thee!
Get Your on Pleated Poppy here.
The necklace was a gift from my sweet blog friend Kristen!

I love your new header Denise. I'm coveting your your boots right now. I'm in the process of getting boots from my parents trip to Scotland similar to yours. I hope they are just as nice.

I love your new header! :) And I love that hymn. :)

Look at you with your cutie patootie new header! Love it!

The knee highs with those boots are so stinkin' cute.

So thankful for Jesus' love. Great hymn.

I love that song too - it's definitely one of my new favorites. And I like your fun boots too.

Btw - I appreciated your recent comment. Honestly, I stewed about it a little and then prayed about it for quite awhile last night. It was convicting. I certainly have a loooong way to go in showing gratitude to my Lord. I'm so thankful for His grace. And for your bloggy friendship.

I love that song! We sang it in a traveling choir at the college I went to. Thanks for posting it: I had forgotten the words!

I loved your comments on my blog today regarding marriage. Love is a decision and love is something that grows. So many people expect the butterflies and magic all the time, but that's unrealistic. I would take deep, lasting love over any other kind, any day.
