A Bit About me

Welcome to my personal weblog! I have many areas of interest as a Christian wife and home schooling mother of 6 girls: writing, poetry, website design, digital photography, a home business (sewing); however, this blog will focus more on the wonderful journey the Lord has brought our family through and what the Lord has shown me in His Holy Word.


I know that my devotionals don't often speak of specifics in our lives, but I want my readers to know that what I write comes most often from what the Lord is doing in our lives, or has done. I don't just repeat words by this preacher or that one. My devotionals are often written through a haze of tears, sometimes in grief, sometimes in peace at God's goodness for what He is doing for our good. At other times, after a flood of tears over my lack of faith in His great plan for us, especially after I've seen Heaven's gates open in another miraculous answer to prayer. What I write is what God shows me through those trials which He brings because of His great goodness as He works out His perfect plan. - Angela.

He Chose the Cross

This song helps to show the reality of what Christ did for us.  Another rendition can be listened to via the MP3 player on the site’s sidebar.

He Chose the Cross

1. To some it’s just an emblem a formality.
It’s a symbol that’s been used so frequently.
Many blaspheme and despise; though it’s ancient, it abides.
A shrine to death, it stands for life to me.

Chorus:
There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He did for the lost.
Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

2. You see why this old emblem is so dear to me.
It stood for suffering and it brought us peace.
It bridged the gap for man, of cleansing for our sins
An icon that reminds us that we’re free!

Chorus:
There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He did for the lost.
Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

Bridge:
God forbid that I should ever let my memory fade.
But forever keep the cross in view for that’s where I was saved.

Chorus:
There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He did for the lost.
Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

      @Emily: Hello Emily! Thanks for you comments. As much as I’d like to take credit, this song was not sung by us, but rather by the West Coast Baptist College choir. Have a look on youtube for more from them. I wish I did have the sheet music for it. Our girls play the piano and guitar and sing anything from tenor to high soprano and harmonize too. :)
