My sweet Aunt Margaret

Well, I didn't expect to be back here quite so soon but here I am. I am typing this at just 9:30 am though I probably won't post it for a few hours.  Shortly, very shortly, after I posted earlier, my sweet aunt passed away.  She and I actually reconnected on Facebook not so long ago and I really enjoyed 'chatting' with her on there.  We often shared songs and hymns.  I don't know if she was much of a singer but she loved hymns.  So for my sweet aunt, here is a song you often shared on Facebook.  I'll keep sharing songs too and will always think of you.  As you told me almost everyday on Facebook, I love you so much.

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”


Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!


Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.


I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
