My grandfather, who I was named after, liked the song.
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
I like the song, but it isn’t a song that frequently gets stuck in my head. But it comes to mind today, when I feel pretty guilty for spending $700 of waste. But unlike before, when I didn’t plan anything, that would trigger a crisis. But these days… it’s not that big of a deal. Not that I want to do it again. But it just hasn’t derailed me that much.
Certainly, that and the Burning Man ticket have given me a local drop. But the last 90 days still look very encouraging! I haven’t drank. My biggest expense for the day was a gallon of organic milk ($6). 23.3% today.
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believ’d!
Thro’ many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.
