My Father's Love

by: Amy Susan Foster, Mike Harland and Niles Borop

The world’s wealth and riches can be bought and sold.
But I possess a treasure far greater than gold;
‘Twas a gift passed down to me from heaven above,
‘Twas the gift of my Father’s love.

And my Father’s love is strong and true,
Always believing, always seeing me through.
So no matter what happens in His grand design,
I’ll be fine with my Father’s love.

Safe and secure now in His love alone,
I find here my place of worth as one of His own.
And I don’t need ev’rything this world wants to give,
‘Cause I live with my Father’s love.

And my Father’s love is strong and true,
Always believing, always seeing me through.
So no matter what happens in His grand design,
I’ll be fine with my Father’s love.

So, no matter what happens in His grand design,
I’ll be fine with my Father’s love,
with my Father’s love.
I have my Father’s love.

The Perfect Wisdom of our God

The perfect wisdom of our God
Revealed in all the universe
All things created by His hand
And held together at His command
He knows the mysteries of the seas
The secrets of the stars are His
He guides the planets on their way
And turns the earth through another day


The matchless wisdom of His ways
That mark the path of righteousness
His word a lamp unto my feet
His Spirit teaching and guiding me
And O the mystery of the cross
That God should suffer for the lost
So that the fool might shame the wise
And all the glory might go to Christ


O grant me wisdom from above
To pray for peace and cling to love
And teach me humbly to receive
The sun and rain of Your sovereignty
Each strand of sorrow has a place
Within this tapestry of grace
So through the trials I choose to say
Your perfect will in Your perfect way

Camp

Well, camp staff training at Northland Camp is in full swing...I really shouldn't even be on here writing this because I have so much to do...write my cabin cheer...work on memorizing my lines for "funny time"...etc...but alas I'm on here...I wanted to update my followers on what's going on in my life...

My cabin is called "the Mohicans," and my name for the summer is Hawkeye...if you've ever seen the movie "the Last of the Mohicans"...you know why...

I also found out today that I'm on the Redskins team, and I'll actually be the team leader!  So, I'm pretty excited, but also nervous about the responsibilities it will bring...but God's grace will see me through...

I would also just like to say that you probably won't see many posts from me this summer...my schedule is going to be so packed...but I'll try to get on and update you all when I have the chance...

God has seriously been working on my heart (through staff training) about a lot of things that I would really like to share, but I really don't have the time to share it, especially since there's so much!  So, I'll just end it with that...
