How far is the east from the west?

Do you know? How far is it?

Well that's on my mind because a song that we're doing at school talks about just that - how the Lord forgets about our sins and transgressions, putting them as far as the east is from the west. How far is that? Maybe it's just the mathematician in me that wants to fathom HOW FAR that really is. Like, really. How far is it. But the great thing about God is that it's farther than I could ever imagine. I can't fathom it. Just like I can't fathom eternity, untainted love, immeasurable grace....I can't fathom how far the east is from the west.
That's so cool.

I've been thinking lately, too, about the richness of words, specifically in the text of some of the most precious hymns ever written. Words like:

"When peace, like a river, attendeth my ways; When sorrows like sea billows roll....WHATEVER my lot, Thou hast TAUGHT me to say: It is well, It is well with my soul."

How absolutely precious are those words. So rich, so deep. I love it.

I have other lighter news to share as well, but I'm off to Computer Programming. :)
