A Wedding and a Sandbox

Well, Grampy and Grammy (and Gretchen, too), left for New Hampshire this a.m. Jeffrey and Andrew had to work; Greig and I had a wedding (he was doing tech; I was playing piano). That meant Sumana needed to come with Greig and me. So while we were involved with the wedding, Sumana stayed in her dad's office working on her math and coloring books. Boy, was she ready to leave after a couple hours!

As soon as we got home she was out at her sandbox. That has got to be her favorite outdoor spot. It is a table with half sand, half water. She spent more than 2 hours out there!

We still did not hear back from Dr. Sander's office . . . ugh! So, of course, with the holiday on Monday, we won't hear anything til Tuesday (let's not hold our breath!)

I told you about the 'needle' episode in the lab several weeks ago. Remember the lab tech asked her favorite song and Sumana said 'Jesus Loves Me'. Well, she has been singing her second favorite song alot today. Here are the words to 'Mighty to Save':

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations
Saviour, He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever, Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender
Shine Your light and
Let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King

Since Jesus conquered the grave we know He can move any mountain in our way. That's where FAITH comes in . . . again. What an awesome, recurring theme in our journey with Sumana.


  1. Mighty to Save is my #1 song these days! I love the part about "take me as You find me, All my fears and failures..." Thank goodness God takes us as we are, each day anew.

    Isn't it funny how we view long weekends in a whole new light? I too am bummed about not being able to follow up on things until Tuesday! Wishing you a wonderful weekend...

  2. I have to say...Mighty to Save if one of my favorite songs too. I love when they play it on the weekends I serve; that means I get to hear it at least 4 times!!!
