My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who bore my pain; Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace and gave me life again; Who crushed my curse of sinfulness and clothed me with His light. And wrote His law of righteousness with pow'r upon my heart.
My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who walks beside; Who floods my weaknesses with strength and causes fears to fly. Whose ev'ry promise is enough for ev'ry step I take. Sustaining me with arms of love and crowning me with grace.
My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who reigns above; Whose wisdom is my perfect peace, Whose ev'ry thought is love. For ev'ry day I have on earth is given by the King. So I will give my life, my all, to love and follow Him.

I went to Target yesterday. I spent $8.45 and saved $10.85!!! I got the lightbulb for free with a manufacturer's coupon and a Target coupon. The Huggies were on sale for $8.99 and I had a $2.00 off coupon making them $6.99 The Rice Krispie Treats and Yogos were a special. The Rice Krispie treats were $1.88 a box. If you bought 2 boxes you got the Yogos for free. I had a coupon for $1.50 off 2 Rice Krispie Treats and a coupon for 75 cents off the yogos. Pretty good day if you ask me!
In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song; this Cornerstone, this solid Ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace, when fears are stilled, when strivings cease! My Comforter, my All in All, here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone! who took on flesh Fulness of God in helpless babe! This gift of love and righteousness Scorned by the ones he came to save: Till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied - For every sin on Him was laid; Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay Light of the world by darkness slain: Then bursting forth in glorious Day Up from the grave he rose again! And as He stands in victory Sin's curse has lost its grip on me, For I am His and He is mine - Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death, This is the power of Christ in me; From life's first cry to final breath. Jesus commands my destiny. No power of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand; Till He returns or calls me home, Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
