The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

In Christ Alone

~~We sang this song in Church this morning and the sheer power of the words made me cry. It is my testimony and I would like to share it with you.

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,
Fullness 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 ev'ry 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 pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.

I wandered over here from Belinda's blog, although I have seen your comments on other blogs. Two things, well actually three...One, nice blog - I'll be back. Two, this is a great song, we sing it often. Three, the toys organizing...I have three boys (5,3,2). I have those little plastic bins from Walmart (they're not cute, but I can't afford cute.) and we have them for different sorts of, castle figurines, blocks, Mr Potato Head, Lincoln Logs, animals, tools, etc. So, it's not really sorted by activity, but just categories they can understand. This has worked well for us - they might get out a few at a time, say cars and blocks, but they can sort them back out at the end. (And, there is one large misc box that gets everything that doesn't have it's own box! Everyone needs a misc box. :-)

Thank you so much for stopping by Rose and Lei!
~~Rose, I love your blog and the way that you are studying the masters. What a wonderful way to learn. I need to do something like that.
Thanks for the organizing tips. I spent most of the day Friday working on her room. I did end up using some boxes just like that and also cleaning out some drawers so that she can use them as toy storage also.
