My Vision.

Though I can't see clearly right now, I ask this to be the prayer of my heart. I want God to be my vision.

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee, Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for my fight,
Be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight.
Thou my soul's shelter, Thou my high tower.
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'ns Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

The time in VA was great. It was wonderful to see family and friends and Samuel's birthday party was wonderful. I didn't end up going to my sister's grave. There just wasn't a right time, and I don't think I'm making excuses. I'll go when we're down there in two weeks. I really want to go when I won't feel rushed.

Today's been rough. I just keep crying and crying. So, probably today isn't going to be my very ambitious day of getting things done but maybe just resting and reflecting and rejoicing in God, even through my tears.
