Sweep Me Away

Sweep Me Away-Kari Jobe

Father I love your ways
You came in your mercy,
and died in my place.
All I can do is bow
Because of your goodness,
and your sovereign grace.

Then you sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love,
where nothing else matters
Sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love,
where nothing else matters.

Tears rolling down my face
Because of your love,
and your sweet embrace.
The peace that just overflows
It's hidden i know,
you have been waiting to

Sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love,
where nothing else matters
Sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love,
where nothing else matters.

Sweep me away,
just you and me lord
Sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love
Sweep me away in your love
Sweep me away in your love
Away in your love, sweep

Sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love,
where nothing else matters
Sweep me away
Sweep me away in your love,
where nothing else matters.

Just you and me,
just you and me
Sweep me away oh lord
Your grace it covers me,
your love it covers me,
oh god you cover me.
Your grace it covers me,
your love it covers me,
oh god you cover me.

While we were at the store this afternoon picking up a few things for the house, we walked by some flowers that were for sale. I mentioned how pretty they were to Cale because there were so many different flowers! Cale looked at me with a smile and asked if he could by me some. It was so sweet! I thought about how before, Cale would run to the store sometimes for me, and bring back flowers, but now he doesn’t get to just go and do things like that now. I think they may have been the sweetest flowers I’ve ever received!

He had a doctor’s appointment today. It was mostly just for a check up on how things are going and making sure everything with meds is going good. They had drawn some blood on Monday and today we had some results from that. Everything was normal, except…Mr. Pizza man has raised cholesterol! The doctor said it’s nothing to worry about or be too concerned about for another couple of years, but if he was a little older with previous heart problems, we would want to change his diet! Cale of course wasn’t bothered at all by it. He continued to say how yummy pizza was and that he wanted some! ;)

The doctor also talked with Cale about what things he wants to do again, and Cale told him he wants to play hockey. In my little head, the idea of Cale back in his skates; on ice…skating, sounds, well, umm…not such a good idea. The doctor did tell Cale that it’s something to work towards and could actually help in a lot of areas! He said that Cale would need to start out holding on to the bar walkers (Cale thought that was stupid and said he didn’t like them!), and wear pads and a helmet, but he thought it was a great idea! This gave my husband a huge smile and made me suddenly gain some grey hair…

I love the idea though! Cale loves being on the ice and had just bought lots of hockey gear just a few weeks before the accident.

We haven’t done such a hot job of being firm with Basil. I think mostly it’s a conflict of interests…I say, no Basil in our bed and Cale continually lets me know that he disagrees. Last night, Basil slept with us. He won and our bed suddenly feels really small. I have this image that I’m going to end up sleeping on the couch while the man and his dog share the bed-no! Haha! Never gonna happen…girl power! Heehee!

But isn’t he just so adorable? Yes, he has also overtaken the couch.


We have been home just a few weeks and we are still being so blessed by all of your prayers, encouragement, phone calls, letters, emails, comments, and packages! Now that all the mail is going to the PO Box, it doesn’t get checked every day. I knew I was expecting a package, but this is what was picked up today!


Thank you. Thank you so very much for continuing this journey with us!

( I skated for years and still try even with my troubled knee :) Is that the address to send packages to? I have been waiting for a house address but if that is where we send stuff I will Finially send my small gift to you ;) lol !
    Basil is good medicine- My mother- in- Love ( law) but I call her love because I entered into her family by love (not just the law...) She says. " Dogs take the sick out of ya!" We have three so we should be really healthy right ;) lol !
