It is Almost Here!!!

I can't believe it, but it is true.  Today I saw that ERIN had posted on her blog what I had wanted to do on mine.  If you visit this page you can see that there are 3 days, 8 hours, 59 minutes, and 3 seconds until the big moment.  

I love it when we plug in the computer and I turn on the slideshow.  I love to hear the music of Lead on Oh King Eternal coming through the microphones.  Call me sentimental, but I love the words to that song.

Lead on, O King eternal,
The day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home.
Through days of preparation
Thy grace has made us strong;
And now, O King eternal,
We lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King eternal,
Till sin’s fierce war shall cease,
And holiness shall whisper
The sweet amen of peace.
For not with swords’ loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums;
With deeds of love and mercy
The heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King eternal,
We follow, not with fears,
For gladness breaks like morning
Where’er Thy face appears.
Thy cross is lifted over us,
We journey in its light;
The crown awaits the conquest;
Lead on, O God of might.

For Bible I am memorizing a special Bible verse.  I am going to post it with photos later... be on the look out.  
Keep us in your prayers... we are almost there and it is going to be AWESOME!!!  (or EPIC as my siblings would say!!!!)
