Gathering Graces 1/29/2018

*Today was the beginning of the second semester at KHS.  I look forward to continuing guiding our seniors toward their future path.
*I said goodbye to Friends this evening.  My binge watching of the television show has come to an end, and now I am free to pursue other interests in the evenings, and I have a lot of things to accomplish on my checklist.  I gave myself until the end of January to finish, and I am done two days ahead of time!! It was a really funny show.
*I found a pattern for coasters, and attempted knitting one, but it didn’t turn out quite right.  I think the pattern may have been a bit off.  But I know enough now that I can adjust the directions and I think I can make it look better.  We’ll see.  Coasters....take two!!
*It felt really good to get up and walk this morning.  Nikki was recovering from the flu so we have been on a break, but we were up and at em this morning.  If the weather stays this mild through February, we may be walking outside in no time. 
*The hymn Be Thou My Vision was one of the prelude songs played at the funeral I attended on Saturday.  This is one of my favorite hymns.  I turned to Cosette, and told her I wanted this song sung at my funeral.  (I don’t think that freaked her out too much to hear me say that.)  Here are the words to this beautiful hymn.
Be Thou My Vision
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art

High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all
