Vacation on Conesus Lake!!



T


Several months ago, we committed to two weeks vacation in July. We really wanted to bring the kids to Consesus Lake this summer, since it was a huge part of our childhood. Every 3rd of July on the lake, they celebrate by passing out flares to the homeowners. Everyone lights the flares at 10pm; its pretty impressive! Mark's parents have a small cottage on the lake and a really nice boat...we are enjoying ourselves immensely. It feels really sweet to be away with with my family; we are thankful.

"My Hope is Built on Nothing Less"
by Edward Mote, 1797-1874

1. My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

2. When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

3. His oath, His covenant, and blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When every earthly prop gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

4. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found,
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

I saw your comment on Jessie's blog and had to hop over to see yours! It's so funny how blogs have been connecting us to so many people. Your family is beautiful! I know Adam and Mark have keep up now and then through phone calls, but I can see pictures now this way! It looks like you guys are doing great. It's good to get updates. I just posted Preston's wedding pictures on mine...

Stopping by to let you know I'm still here praying.
Romans 5:1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
