    What a great idea although I would doubt I could remember back 10 years much less 5 years worth! Love how far you've come and all the life lessons you've learned along the way! Priceless. Here is hoping that 2010 is blessed with so much goodness from God.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

    When sorrow seems to surround you
    When suffering hangs heavy over your head
    Know that tomorrow brings
    Wholeness and healing
    God knows your need
    Just believe what He said

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fear
    Gladness for mourning
    Peace for despair

    When what you've done keeps you from moving on
    When fear wants to make itself at home in your heart
    Know that forgiveness brings
    Wholeness and healing
    God knows your need
    Just believe what He said

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fearGladness for mourning
    Peace for despair

    I once was lost but God has found me
    Though I was bound I've been set free
    I've been made righteous in His sight
    A display of His splendor all can see

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fear Gladness for mourning
    Peace for despair
