Susanna’s parents traveled from Fort Refuge for a Thanksgiving celebration.

Trail Slumber

Susanna fell asleep on the trail comparing the sounds of ocean surf and Sam’s guitar to their campfire cricket chorus.

Psalm 107:9 KJV

Pattern of Hope

As Harriet led the songfest with Sam, she slowly recognized the specific colors and patterns of the quilt that wrapped Susanna and June in warmth.

“That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:”

Waves of Praise

Although Susanna didn’t feel much like singing, she allowed the warmth of Rosita’s gift to surround her as she listened to believers and nature praise their Creator.

“All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.”

Whisper a Prayer: Remember

Isaiah 49:15: Can a mother forget her child?

Do You Remember?
(Whisper a Prayer)

Do you remember your Savior?
Do you remember your Friend?
Open your heart to His searching,
for He is rememb’ring you.

Do you remember His promise?
Do you remember His grace?
If you confess, He will pardon,
for He is rememb’ring you.

Do you remember your Shepherd?
Do you remember your King?
One whispered prayer draws Him nearer,
for He is rememb’ring you.

How Great Thou Art: Promised

blue cherry

Shouting hosannas!

Shine Like the Stars
(How Great Thou Art)

A thousand hills, the earth to rest His feet,
stars stretch across His Sovereign domain.
Splendor revealed, His voice sustained in thunder,
Creator God, despised for such as I.

Chorus:
Shine like the stars, reflecting righteousness;
refined by fire, fishers of men.
Shine like the stars, reflecting righteousness;
anchored in hope, beloved of God.

Searching for me,
unfailing, gentle Healer,
he set my feet upon the solid ground.
His grace abounds; the cross—forgiveness purchased,
I’ll spread good news, astounded by His love.

Forsaking all, redemption’s promised treasure
opened His arms to save our fallen world.
Returning King, creation shouts hosannas!
Eternity with Yahweh Immanuel.

How Great Thou Art: Astounded

Spreading good news.

Shine Like the Stars
(How Great Thou Art)

Searching for me,
unfailing, gentle Healer,
he set my feet upon the solid ground.
His grace abounds; the cross—forgiveness purchased,
I’ll spread good news, astounded by His love.
