Called to Serve

Last May my nephew, Kevin gave me the most beautiful gift.  His friend, the talented artist, Julia Fish Thompson, created two beautiful calligraphy prints of the song, "Called to Serve."   He had one print done for me and one for me to give to a very special friend of mine who had shared a special story with me about this song. These were done to honor her beautiful daughter Emily and my son Ryan.

The words of this beautiful hymn are:
Called to serve Him, heav'n-ly King of glory,
Chosen e'er to witness for his name,
Far and wide we tell the Father's story,
Far and wide his love proclaim.

Called to know the richness of his blessing --

Sons and daughters, children of a King --
Glad of a heart, his holy name confessing,
Praises unto him we bring.

Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;

Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;
Forward, pressing forward, as a  triumph song we sing.
God our strength will be; press forward ever,

Called to serve our King.

I have been so anxious to share these beautiful prints with you, but due to some delays in the framing process, it's taken a while.   But, they are FINALLY ready for your viewing!

Thank you, Camille, for sharing so much with me.  I aspire to be an inspired Mother like you.  Thank you, Kevin, for your thoughtfulness!   You are an amazing man.  And, Julia, thank you SO much for sharing your talent, twice.
