Celebrating Life

4Saturday was my birthday. (We were in Pittsburgh for the weekend. I had a nice, relaxing day. Saturday afternoon we attended a wedding - Kris & Pete, friends from the Focus bible study in Pittsburgh. It was a fun time. And I got to do some swing dancing! Thanks, Steve & Amy for hosting us for the weekend.)
------- 4 And, yesterday was my 3 year "anniversary" (as my oncologist calls it) as a breast cancer survivor. So this weekend was kind of a celebration of life. I praise God for the gift of life that he has granted. And, I praise him for my hope of eternal life... Let the praises ring!!! Oh Lord my God in you i put my trust Oh Lord my God in you i put my hope Oh Lord my God in you i put my trust ohh yes I do Oh Lord my God in you i put my hope in you In you In you I find my peace In you In you I find my strength In you, I live and move and breath Let everything I say and do Be founded by my faith in you I lift up holy hands and sing let the praises ring Oh Lord my God to you I give my hands Oh Lord my God to you I give my feet Oh Lord my God to you I give my everything Take all I am Oh Lord my God to you I give my life Woah...Woah In you In you I find my peace In you In you I find my strength In you, I live and move and breath Let everything I say and do Be founded by my faith in you I lift up holy hands and sing let the praises ring..
