July 18, 2006 - Tuesday Profound Truth in Hymns I love the old hymns. There is so much profound truth in them. It's amazing how I can just see the words and remember the tune and sing the hymn. The following hymn, He Giveth More Grace, I do not know as a song, but the words by Annie Johnson Flint (1866-1932). touched me and I trust they will do the same to anyone that reads this. "He giveth more grace when the burden grows greater. He sendeth more strength when the labors increase. To added affliction, He addeth His mercy, To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace. His love has no limit, His grace has no measure. His power has no boundary known unto men. For out of his infinite riches in Jesus, He giveth and giveth and giveth again. When we have exhausted our store of endurance, When strength has failed ere the day half done, When we reach the end of our hoarded resources, Our Father's full giving is only begun.
I am blessed to live in San Diego. People come here for a vacation and I get live here all year long. I taught 2nd grade for 43years and retired in 2013.I still volunteer in a 2nd grade at my school every Thursday. I have two grown daughters that are a very important part of my life. I am married a wonderfully patient man with two daughters a son and two granddauhters, and we live with two very entertaining cats. While I enjoy champagne at a wedding or special occasion , I do not need alcohol to have fun and it is never an option if I am upset. I truly can find joy in simple pleasures. I do not drink coffee, I am so blessed to take care of my youngest granddaughter once a week. She calls me Gamma and Bill is Popi. Hearing her say her names for us brings such joy to my heart.
