Okay, I'm game. I like these sorts of things, so here goes...
"Utterly abandoned to the will of God;
seeking for no other path than my Master trod;
leaving ease and pleasure, making Him my choice,
waiting for His guidance, listening for His voice.
Utterly abandoned! No will of my own;
for time and for eternity, His, and His alone;
all my plans and purposes lost in His sweet will,
having nothing, yet in Him all things possessing still."
~"Streams in the Dessert...um, I mean Desert" by Chas E. Cowman~
This is exactly what my book looks like, its worn, torn and loved well. I found it at a garage sale and the name of the original owner is beautifully written in the front: "Ruth Eckert, University Park, Iowa."Now, it's my turn: I tag Jeane, Vickie, Mary June, Tonya King and CJ Raymer!! Looking forward to seeing what those books say that surround my friends, near and far!
