"For the Beauty of the Earth..."

I was messing around with the camera and took a few photos in our yard...







































































To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing
For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified
You've called me out of death
You've called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I'm reconciled

At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness

I love that quote you have about the Scots! That's so funny (and true)!

"We (the Scots) are a race of leaders. But you can't all be leaders, therefore, we tend to fight one another."- Nigel Tranter

Are you guys Scottish or Irish? I'm pretty sure the "Mc" is Irish and "Mac" is Scottish. We're Scots even though our names spelled "Mc", but that's a long story.
