It Is Well With My Soul

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this Blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall me mine, for in death as in life,
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But Lord, 'tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

united breaks guitars

remember our saga with United? dave carroll's song just sums the united experience up so well =)))


staying in your own home is like having your own children. you need to clean it up, including all the yucky disgusting things that come with it.

a few days ago, when we came home, we saw a wasps nest on our main door. its made of mud and looks like 3 balls stuck together. totally gross looking i must say. the thought of this whole saga still makes me want to puke. bleah!

anyway, vin and i finally decided to get rid of it today after much procrastination cos one of the balls had a hole in it (meaning a wasps grew up and flew out). double yucks!!!

we armed ourselves with a flat metal spade and a wet cloth, not knowing what to expect. vin scraped off the nest with 1 swift motion and the mud with alot of green slimy things dropped on the floor. we were both totally grossed out.

on close inspection, those green slimy things seemed to be the larvae that was still in the worms stage. i quickly got pails of water and washed them all down the drain of the corridor and vin cleaned up the door, which had some green slimy things on it too.

vin summed it up with 'interesting experience'. me? YUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
