Into my heart

Into my heart,

Into my heart,
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
Come in today,
Come in to stay,
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.

OK!  so i had a good nights sleep and inspiration came to me in the morning!  Mom used to make lots of these boxes to put little things in.  This one is especially cute.  It is only about two inches across.  And it reminded me of the little childrens song above.


we are going to have a pink christmas ladies banquet this year and this is the start of the decorations.  it is very hard to find pink decortions this year.  i wanted the guys to wear pink ties also.  i may have to make some.

these are my favorite pink dresses on the royal family, they are so lovely and elegant and perfect for each one.  Have a wonderful pink saturday!!

At the end of my rainbow
 I seek no golden prize
For the key to my kingdom
Is the face of the Master.
Gain and power and riches
Are thrills I'll never miss
For the key to my kingdom
Is the thrill of His voice

Savior!, I have more
Than fame and fortune
Every time I read your Word
And with the Spirit around my soul
All the world's at my command

If this world should ever fail
And friends should leave me
My world would tumble down
But You're the key to my kingdom
And your love is my crown

Yes, yes, if this world should ever fail
Ever friends should leave me
All of my world would tumble down
For Savior you are the key to my kingdom
And your love is my crown
Yes, You're the key to my kingdom
And your love is my crown
Yes, You're the key to my kingdom
And your love, your love is my crown

There are many different kinds of nails!!  construction nails, pretty nails like the pink ones here!!  fake nails for your fingernails, my son says in .bolivia nails are hard to find and are very expensive,  he is right because i tried  to find a couple of nails when i was down there and we only found three on the whole campus which were lying on a tucked away table, unused and red dirt lined and when i tried to pound them into the post it was near to impossible as the wood is very hard down there.  the girl in this picture  is making a business out of selling these nails and if anyone knows where i can get a couple i would love to know!!!
and then we have another kind of nail, although the look and material that they were made out of is the same as ordinary nails, these ones had a purpose and fulfilled a prophecy.  Three rusty nails describes the picture.........

This is a story of long ago of a man who owned a little store.
As he would tell it, "I was proud to have my name above the door."
This took place, oh, about two thousand years ago, as I recall,
I was located in Jerusalem, just across the street from Pilate's hall.

And I had everything anyone would ever need;
Why, folks would come from miles around, regardless of their creed.
But there was only one thing I had I thought would never sell,
So I placed it in a corner on a shelf ----three old rusty spike nails.

Then one day a Roman soldier came through the door,
And as he walked up to me, it seemed he shook the floor.
I said, "Can I help you, Sir?" in a voice I 'm sure seemed frail.
He looked at me with a sneering grin and said,
"I'd like to buy some nails - some big, big nails."

"Well, you see, Sir, three's all I have."
"Oh, That'll do. For the job I have, three's enough - - -Now how much do I owe you?"
He placed the money in my hand, and I was glad to make the sale.
Then I began to wonder, and I asked,
"Sir, what can you do with just three spike nails?"

"Did you ever hear of a man called Jesus the Nazarene?"
"You mean the one they call the Son of God?"
"Yes, that's the one. Today I intend to show the world who's boss,
For with these three nails I'm going to nail that man Jesus to a cross."

You'll never know how numb I felt - as on my knees I fell.
"Please sir, don't do that!" - but he just turned and walked away
I said, "Please, let me buy them back!"
But he just looked at me and grinned.

And in the distance, I could see the howling mob
Through the tears that filled my eyes.
"Away with him" "Crucify him!" I could hear their angry cries.
But over the top of all the noise and groans of agony,
I can still hear the sound of a hammer as that big Roman soldier---Nailed my Jesus to a tree."
With three rusty nails, they nailed Jesus to a tree;
And His blood washed my sins away.
