Tears flowed this morning as my dear husband left for a job for the next 3-6 weeks. I always think I won't cry, we'll be okay, but when it comes to the crunch I just can't hold the tears back.
After he left, the children and I went for a walk on
one of our beaches, in the car on the radio I heard the beautiful hymn
'Just a closer walk with thee' and my soul soared and I
came back home and just played the hymn over
and over and over and cried and cried
This woman is so thankful that My God is with me all the time.
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
I am weak, but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.
When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore
