Favorite Song

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

Ah, Seattle

We live in city of crazy people. 


Apparently, there was a small earthquake this morning.  I found this out by reading through my friends' Facebook status updates.  So, I went to read about said earthquake on the Seattle-Times website.  You can read the article here.

It talks about seismic activity far beneath the earth's crust, the Juan de Fuca plate, no visible damage, etc.   What I found rather disturbing amusing were these lovely sentiments left by people clearly of sound mind:

This morning I found there were cracks in my subconscious.  Posted on January 30, 2009 at 6:48 AM by BallardRider.

My cat declared an emergency and ordered us to stockpile mice and salmon.  Posted on January 30, 2009 at 9:48 AM by TheWholeTruth.

These were, by the way, the three "notable" comments on the main story page. 

We live in a city of psychos.
