Abide With Me

Abide with me, Lord; fast falls the eventide; the darkness deepens, Lord with me abide. When other helpers, fail and comforts flee, help of the helpless, abide with me.
Thou on my head, in early youth didst smile; and though rebellious, and perverse meanwhile, Thou has not left me, oft as I left Thee, on to the close Lord, abide with me.
I need Thy presence, every passing hour. what but Thy grace, can foil the tempter's power? Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me.
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness. Where is thy sting, death? Where grave thy victory? I triumph still, abide with me.
Hold Thou Thy cross, Lord, before my closing eyes; shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies. Heav'ns morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; in life, in death, Lord, abide with me.

I didn't get the best Halloween pictures ever! I left Mom's house to go buy a new card for my camera and missed the best pictures of all the cousins dressed up together! :( You can see the pics on Page's blog- they are great!! The kids had so much fun together! We had two clone troopers (Noah and Will), Sleeping Beauty (Francie), Little Bo Peep (Anna) and her sheep (Mary)and a Princess and a Pea (Morgan and Wyatt)! It has been a tradition in the past few years to eat dinner at Mom's and take the kids trick or treating!! Tiff, Shane, and Morgan always come- they are like family!! It is so sweet to have wonderful memories to cherish with friends and family!
