"Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting LOVE; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you." Jeremiah xxxi.3

How shall we become lovely? By loving Him who is altogether lovely. ---Augustine

The soul that gives itself wholly and without reserve to God is filled with God's peace; and the closer we draw to our God, so much the more steadfast and tranquil shall we become. ---F. B. Meyer

This house we'd like to dedicate to the Lord,
And thank Him that this house we could afford.
Many blessings on us He has poured,
And we dedicate it of our own accord.

We'd like to have it for His use while we live in it,
And may for many missionaries it seem fit.
And use it for God, yes, every bit.
And may joy be in this house, if God permits.

So we dedicate this house to the Lord,
And ask Him to protect it with His mighty Sword.
We don't know what Christ for us has stored,
But we will press on for His heavenly reward.

It was exciting to have 4 generations here to welcome in the new year. We banged pots and pans at midnight (Caleb broke my favorite wooden spoon), and let the new year in the front door, and let the old one out the back door. We enjoyed a Cuban meal together, played games, listened to music, talked, did a puzzle, watched football--all the ingredients for a good relaxing day.
