New Song

So we have been singing this song at Bible study lately and I really like it. So I thought I would share it with you. It may very well be an old song but this is the first time I am hearing it. I love it.

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me

When Satan tempts me to despair
and tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there,
Who made an end to all my sin

Because the sinless Savior died
my sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
to look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Before the throne of God, I come
Before the throne of God, I come

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
my perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am,
the King of glory and of grace

My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in Heaven, He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart

One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God

Dubai videos

Here are a few fun videos from Dubai!

First I narrated looking at Ski Dubai. For those who don't know, It is the biggest indoor skiing in the world. We didn't go in but you get a peek at it.

Videos

So I am going to attempt to show you some videos. I have never tried it so I'm not really sure how it works.

This past week/weekend Russians celebrate Mazlenitsa. It is a celebration to say goodbye to the winter and welcome spring. They had a special celebration for teachers. They of course had traditional Russian dances, blini, and outdoor games.

So this first video is of me sledding down a hill that the kids made at school during the celebration. It used to be about twice as wide, long, and high. But since most days are above freezing now, it is beginning to melt away. I was watching the other teachers do it and they kept falling down the sides! It was about as tall as I am. So I was trying my best to stay atop and not fall!

Here is another. We also had Women's Day on Saturday and therefore got today off of work! So this video is of the guy teachers singing to us. They did a whole little show for us. It was great!

Here is another Mazlenitsa celebration video. They were doing another one of their traditional dances.

I hope you enjoyed them! I will try to do some more again later!
