In This Home

When I first saw this painting at Su's house I got tears in my eyes. Seriously. It touches my heart and warms my soul. My family is my everything and this describes us pretty well. Su is giving one away at Just A Girl, and I'm so hoping to win! You should stop by her blog, it's changed my life!

Times by Tenth Avenue North

I've had this CD for a while, but haven't listened to it in a month or two. Guess I never "heard" the words to this song - it brought tears to my eyes, and I listened over and over.
It reads like a conversation between me and God, and oh, isn't it so wonderful that He doesn't care where I've fallen, doesn't care where I've been, He'll NEVER forsake me, His love for me NEVER ends. How blessed I am to know HIM. HE is ALL I need, HE is sufficient.

I know i need you
I need to love you
I love to see you, and its been so long
i long to feel you
i feel this need for you
and i need to hear you
is that so wrong?
oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
now you pulled me near you
when we're close i fear yous
till im afraid to tell you
all that i've done
are you done forgiving?
or can you look pass my pretending?
Lord i'm so tired of defending
what i've become
what have i become?
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh. (repeat 4)
i hear you say "my love is over,its underneath, its inside, its in between
the times you doubt me, when you can't feel the times that you've questioned 'is this for real?
the times you've broken, the times that you mend
the times you hate me and the times that you bend
well my love is over, its underneath
its inside, its in between,these times you're healing
and when your heart breaks
the times that you feel like you've fallen from grace
the times you're hurting
the times that you heal
the times you go hungry and *are tempted* to steal
in times of confusion and chaos and pain
im there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame
im there through your heartache
im there in the storm
my love i will keep you by my power alone
i dont care where you've fallen, where you have been
i'll never forsake you
my love never ends, it never ends
mmm, mmmoh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Goodbye For Now


I am just too busy with work, home, kids, church - I just don't have time to dedicate to this blog anymore. It's been a good outlet for me - I will miss you all. I may be back someday . . . .

Do you iphone?

My phone is falling apart! Really, it is no longer a flip phone, it's a flop phone - rarely can I get it to stay closed!
I know a few people who have and love the iphone. I don't have the money for it right now - but if I can hold out on getting a new phone - tell me, is the iphone worth it? If not, why? If so - what is the best thing about it?

Tears . . . .

Tears, I shead them easily. My grandmother has always said that my tear ducts are close to the surface. I cry when I'm sad, when I'm happy, when I'm mad, really, when I feel any emotion strongly. I wish I could control it better than I can. I simply can't stop them if they decide to come. Believe me, I've tried. All. My. Life.
My Dad always hated my tears. He'd get so MAD when he saw them. He'd tell me to quit, or else! I'd try . . . . .
Luckily, HWH isn't bothered by them. After 17 years, he's quite used to them. My 14 yr. old son doesn't get them, and can be embarrased by them.
Hey, my dental hygenist says I make a lot of spit. Perhaps, all those water making functions are just very active in my body!?

Preparing for St. Vincent

Well, only about 11 days till we leave for St. Vincent! While there our Teen Group will host two Youth Rallies where they'll play games with area kids and then the gospel will be spread. We'll spend a week teaching VBS to the area kids as well. It's going to be lots of fun! I'm told it will be very hot, full of mosquitoes, no air-conditioning, and tiring - but we are all excited about going and meeting new people and sharing our love of Jesus!
Now, the challenge is packing all that we need in one suitcase that weighs 50 pounds or less! Any suggestions???
