Happy 30th Birthday

It's hard to believe that I actually hit the "3 0" mark in my life. I guess life is all down hill from here right? I am just thankful to be alive and have a wonderful family. Tamara, Bryce and myself are a very happy family and I am thankful for them.I have been blessed a such a beautiful wife and handsome son. My parents (Don and Rhonda) and Tamara's parents (LeRoy and BethAnn) have been too good to me and have taught me alot and have been there for me always. My aunties and uncles, cousins and friends. I am so very thankful to be surrounded by such wonderful people. I am most thankful for Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. As I sit here I have the song in my head "Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus." What a wonderful song by Louisa M.R. Stead 1882 (words) and William Kirkpatrick (music)

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”

Refrain

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Refrain

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

Refrain

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Refrain
