How deep

I have a lot in my head but I do not know how to get my thoughts on the page so they make sense. So...... I love Easter. I love the work that Christ did for me and you on the cross. I hope I am never not moved to tears and joy at what the Lord did for me.
This song is on a CD I have. I love it. Actually I love the whole CD but this one has really been running through my brain this week. It is Selah - You Deliver Me. This is the song.


How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross
My guilt upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no powr's, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Words and Music by Stuart Townend

I hope you have a great day!

Bugs has had a friend since birth. NW is May to Sept. older then Bugs. We used to all go to church together then they moved away. They moved back to the area and the boys STILL love to hang out. NW has the same unbridled joy about critters as Bugs does. Sicko's! Yesterday NW came over and spent the day with us. They were REALLY wanting to go hunting but we are having bipolar weather so it was going to be hit and miss at best.
They finally got to go to the pond and they found some things but not the PRIZE. So I told Bugs to go dig under the leaf pile that was still on the flower bed and they hit the MOTHER LOAD!
2 salamanders and a frog! They had fun playing with them. We took NW to dinner with us for T2's dinner and then came and got the critters and took him home. He got to have the sally's and the frog and a huge bucket of frog eggs to take to his house. I wish you could have seen his mother's VERY excited face - NOT - at the prospect of them at HER house. I told her our rule is to keep the critter's over night and then let them go the next day. She thought that was a wonderful idea! LOL I'll leave that up to them. Bug's had a really hard time letting them go with him. He's not used to sharing his critter's with anyone. They had so much fun though.

Bug's talking with his buddy.

NW and his catch.

Buddy's with their friends.

NW is excited about the salamanders. I REALLY wish I had gotten his mother's face.

Picture Salad

A picture I found on Dh's camera. Carmel

Bug's science project. Yes he did the work. I typed for him but he did the rest. He picked his colors and we figured out the best look. He did really well on it.

At the science fair

Bugs and his friend. The biggest salamander I have ever seen.

Spokane part 1

I took a whole LOT of pictures while we were gone. I think I'll just do the highlights in a few posts. I'm sure you don't need/want/have any need to see them all. :)

Bugs will always find a way to read. These are "night vision" goggles he got for Christmas. He uses them to read in the dark.

Showing me how they work.

Watching a movie. They never fell asleep.
