To Remember

I have been keeping the ultrasound picture of the baby we lost tucked in my Bible for the past few months. I would often come across it, as I had placed it in between the pages of one of my favorite Psalms.  I decided to take the picture and the diaper I received in my OB welcome bag from my Doctor and put a shadow box display together. 

During the time I was working on it God brought a song to mind called Shadowfeet.  I found this video on youtube~couldn't be more fitting for this season in my life.

.....When time and space are through, I'll be found in you.  Then, my faith will become sight!!! Someday, Lord I will get to meet my precious son or daughter.  Until then, hold him or her closely for us!  We love you sweet baby in Heaven.

All of my life, in every season
You are still God, I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship.

Nothing Is Wasted

From the ruins, from the will rise.
From the wreckage, from the darkness....glory will shine.
GLORY will shine!

Help me to know Lord, that nothing is ever wasted.

Turning 30 Something...

Look how God painted the sky for me on my Birthday!

Blowing out my Birthday candle.
No wish this year.

My present from if I actually get
to use them is another issue. I think
my running days may be over.

Even though Lucas got sick and couldn't
share in any of the Birthday celebration, he
still wanted a picture with the Birthday girl.

I was blessed with the love of family and friends today.
A reminder of the precious things God has given me.
My life is not without struggles, more so this past
year of my life than ever before. But I look to
the coming year with hope.
 Turning 37 is a good thing!
 Each day God gives to me is a gift that I do not want to waste.

Oh Lord, help me to live each day joy-filled.
To learn from my mistakes and imperfections.
To know that I have a purpose and my life has a plan,
even when at times I feel like it's all falling apart.

I pray my life glorifies you and that my precious children
will see just how much their Momma loves you.

I want to SHINE for you!!!

I don't know what the future holds~but I know who holds the future!

This Morning

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. ~Isaiah 40:28-31~

As I'm reading this during devotions this morning the song starts playing on my mp3 I'm thinking God clearly intends for me to HEAR Him this morning through word and song!!! Thank you Lord for drawing me in so close to you, it's so good to walk in your presence every single moment of each day.
