"You were with me all along.
You knew of every struggle and every strife.
You waited patiently as I turned away from you constantly,
And you held my hand as I wandered through the darkness.
I had no idea you were there.
My senses were numbed by my sin,
But you shocked me with your relentless love,
And blood flowed through my body once again.
My heart was once cold and rigid
But now beats with a lively spirit;
It changes everyday as I grow closer to you.
How can it be that I am worthy of your grace?
There can never be a truth so good, so lovely.
I owe you my whole life, Lord.
Today, I am honoring you and all you have done for me.
Today, I will bathe in your Holy Water and dedicate my life to you.
May all that I do be in Your will.
Thank you so very much, Lord.
Praise God for how good He is! I'm so excited for the ways that God will work through Hannah, and for her to develop a deeper relationship with Him.

Finally, this weekend (October 8th) is our long awaited 20 Year Celebration! For those of you who are still on the fence about this event, or if you haven't yet RSVP'd, please do as soon as you can! I am really excited to see all of my old friends, current and past supporters, and all of their families. God has blessed me by allowing me to be part of this ministry and my life is now very different because of it. The celebration will be THIS Saturday at Richardson East Church of Christ in Richardson. The reception will begin at 4 and the celebration ceremony will begin at 5. I hope that you can make it!
