New Every Morning
Yes, "new every morning,"
though we may awake,
Our hearts with old sorrow
beginning to ache;
With old work unfinished
when night stayed our hand;
With new duties waiting,
unknown and unplanned;
With old care still pressing,
to fret and to vex;
With new problems rising,
our minds to perplex;
In ways long familiar,
in paths yet untrod;
Oh, new every morning
the mercies of God!
His faithfulness fails not,
it meets each new day;
New guidance for every
new step of the way;
New grace for new trials,
new trust for old fears;
New patience for bearing
the wrongs of the years;
New strength for new burdens,
new courage for old;
New faith for whatever
the day may unfold;
As fresh for each need
as the dew on the sod;
Oh, new every morning
the mercies of God!

Lydia's High School Graduation

Lydia's Senior Pictures

On May 17, Lydia graduated. She has completed 12 years of Home-Schooling.
We started home-schooling her while we lived in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.
(We were missionaries in Northern Ireland for twelve years.)
We were privileged to have Bro. Mark Bradfield and his wife Monica from Londonderry, Northern Ireland, here for Lydia's Graduation. Bro. Mark and Monica were with us for a few days and we enjoyed their visit. Bro. Mark is the pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Londonderry, where we were at for 7 years. They were a blessing and Bro. Mark spoke at the Graduation and preached at our church on May 18.
Lydia is now doing internship at our local bank in town and she loves it. Here are photos taken after the ceremony..
