Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

We had a full Saturday

  1st:  Greg's big race... the half marathon on TRAILS!  He ran a 9:45 minute mile... an amazing feat for those steep trails and that distance.  Also, he improved his time significantly over the last 2 years he ran this.  Amazing what being finished with his MBA does for allowing him to actually train!  The girls were great cheerleaders.

Next:  C's final soccer game of the season and pizza party.  Clara got the award for the "most times a soccer ball got kicked into her belly."  She is super proud of her trophy.

The rest of the team fought over who got to give coach Greg his plaque.

And last:  a choir concert

We sang this song, which is ridiculous because we are all classical singers and really can't pull this stuff off.  Not to mention that this is a scene from Sister Act and is a favorite with high school choirs.  I have to say, I do love the song, though.  Especially when Lauren Hill sings it.  I love the lyrics... they describe my testimony and why I live my life the way I do...

Joyful, joyful, Lord we adore thee
God of Glory, Lord of Love
Melt the clouds of sin, sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Drive it away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us
Fill us with the light of day
Light of day!

Phew... I am exhausted, but grateful. 

For a full life and a full heart.
