None But Jesus



Happy Saturday!! Saturday is my favorite day of the week, for many reasons...but mostly because I get to go to church. I love my church. From the very first day I attended, I have known that was the place for me to be. I think I have yet to leave without tears falling. I feel safe there. I have fun there. I don't like it when they play songs like None But Jesus right before we're told to turn to our neighbor and say Hi, because I've just become a mess of tears and goo, but I do like when Pastor Kip splits the church in half and has one side yelling GO and the other side yelling DUCKS!

If you're ever in Portland, I invite you to visit Southlake and see what we're all about. Shhhhh....(We have lots of Beaver fans, too) GO DUCKS! and it is definitely a come as you are church.

Thank you! I needed this this morning. Does your church have a Sunday service too? Where is it at? I'll check it out. We will have to meet up for a drink or something that the Muddy Rudder sometime since we are so close! Maybe even a double date if we can get sitters. This made me get tears in my eyes this morning but then again I'm PMSing like never before so I'm crying at the drop of a hat. but this song always makes me cry like a baby.

Amanda, I listened to it three times this morning and cried for 15 minutes straight!

Yes, Southlake (in West Linn) has 3 Sunday services. I usually go on Saturday because if the husband does go, it's NOT going to be on a Sunday morning...He usually doesn't go on Saturdays, either...but at least the option is there :-)
I love when we get to go as a family.

I go to church on Saturdays too! I love that I get to do that. The worship time in the beginning is my favorite. ;)
