We had a good Monday here. Mondays are always busy days, I guess its because we are getting back into the routine. Today Crystal didn’t post a Making Your Home a Haven, so I did enjoy the break and focused on catching up on the ironing. I did get most of it done, I think, some could be buried under my sewing projects.
Anyway, I did want to post our hymn of the month for March. We having been singing the hymn "I’d Rather Have Jesus". It is a great hymn and I can remember when I first heard it as a child. May it be our motto, I"d rather have Jesus than what this world has to offer. He does have something better!
I’d rather have Jesus
I’d rather be His than have riches untold;
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands,
I’d rather be led by His nail pierced hand. Than to be a king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin’s dread sway,
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today. I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause;
I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I’d rather have Jesus than world-wide fame,
I’d rather be true to His holy name. He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
He’s sweeter than honey from out of the comb;
He’s all that my hungering spirit needs,
I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead. I’d Rather Have Jesus is a song written by Rhea F. Miller with the tune written by George Beverly Shea. You can read a bit more about the song here.
