  1. The love of God is greater far
    Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
    It goes beyond the highest star,
    And reaches to the lowest hell;
    The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
    God gave His Son to win;
    His erring child He reconciled,
    And pardoned from his sin.
    • Refrain:
      Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
      How measureless and strong!
      It shall forevermore endure—
      The saints’ and angels’ song.
  2. When hoary time shall pass away,
    And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
    When men who here refuse to pray,
    On rocks and hills and mountains call,
    God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
    All measureless and strong;
    Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
    The saints’ and angels’ song.
  3. Could we with ink the ocean fill,
    And were the skies of parchment made,
    Were every stalk on earth a quill,
    And every man a scribe by trade;
    To write the love of God above
    Would drain the ocean dry;
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
    Though stretched from sky to sky.
Verse 3 was penciled on the wall of a narrow room in an insane asylum by a man said to have been demented. The profound lines were discovered when they laid him in his coffin.

Did you take the time to see the love notes our Lord sent you today?

Today is one of those days were even the first ray of sunlight coming through the window shouted, "I love you Diana!"  G0d is so good all the time but today I have know in so many ways His presence.

In the last month we have been awed by the answers to prayer our Lord gave!   
The annual Ladies Retreat had a lower than normal attendance but we learned alot about Jehova Nuestro Pastor!
The youth event on July 26-27 was an exciting time of watching the youth of several churches step out and use there gifts and talents to shine for Jesus!
VBS had as many as 94 kids one day!  4 adults asked Jesus to be their Savior and Lord during the closing program and 6 kids during the week.  It was a joy to see adults and youth pouring time and energy into making VBS an unforgettable experience!
We have also been amazed at how God is leading the church through changes in leadership and molding the character and testimony of many brothers and sisters in the church.  
I have been on my knees alot before our Lord asking for wisdom as I counsel women and girls.
