Tragedy at Fort Hood and the Importance of Life

On Thursday, November 5, 2009, an army psychiatrist opened fire in Fort Hood killing 12 and wounding 31.
Please pray for the families of the people that were killed! Also, pray for the doctors that will be working on the wounded.
Talking about death makes me think about life and how precious it is. Life is so precious! I think death is one of the main things that can make us worry. It comforts me to know that my Heavenly Father knows how long I will live and I don't need to worry because his Son has told me not to. When someone in my family dies or a friend's family member dies it makes me think about my life! Am I treating every one with love and respect? When someone dies it make me want to be close to my family because I don't know how much longer they will be here on this earth or how much longer I will be here.
In Christ,

My Favorite Hymn


Verse 1

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Verse 2
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

(Chorus )

Verse 3.
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"


To me this is the most beautiful hymn there is!! The lyrics and just the sound of the song itself is so overwhelmingly lovely! Of course I have more favorites but when I hear this one it seems like I could lift off and fly to heaven.
