God, is so good

hard to believe the last time I posted was a year ago, about the birth of our 3rd. God has been so good to my family. I still can't believe it and I'm in it everyday, each diaper, meal, basket full of laundry...still can't believe we have 3 children. I love my family. Thank You sweet Jesus.

shock and awe

It's been awhile since I've posted anything, were to begin... We still have our foster daughter and she's precious (drives me nuts sometimes but what kid doesn't!) She'll be one in a couple weeks so we're going to celebrate her day with family and friends. Owen is in preschool, can't believe it. He's also in AWANA and really enjoys it. Kevin's back to being a small group leader in our jr. high youth group, I don't know how he does it. On paper he has about 15 7th graders, I could be off a few and there might be a 6th grader here and there, not 100% sure. Bless his heart, I certainly couldn't do it. Oh yeah, WE'RE PREGNANT!! Due in April 2010 so makes me about 3 month, that's were the shock and awe come in. Still in shock and not real sure when I'll come out of it. God sure is at work.

WOO! I actually ran an official 5k race this morning and finished!! That's a huge accomplishment for me, THANK YOU LORD for holding off the rain till I was finished!! I want to go do so much stuff today and tackle a few things I haven't done with two kids yet, still adjusting to having our little foster baby. But all my body wants to do is curl into a little ball and sleep under a warm blanket :) What to do, what to do...

broken hallelujah

With my love and my sadness
I come before You Lord
My heart’s in a thousand pieces
Maybe even more

Yet I trust in this moment
You’re with me somehow
And You’ve always been faithful
So Lord even now

When all that I can sing
Is a broken hallelujah
When my only offering
Is shattered praise
Still a song of adoration
Will rise up from these ruins
I will worship You and give You thanks
Even when my only praise
Is a broken hallelujah

Oh Father, You have given
Much more than I deserve
And I have felt Your hand of blessing
On me at every turn

How could I doubt Your goodness
Your wisdom, Your grace
So Lord hear my heart
In this painful place

I lift my voice
Your Spirit moves
I raise my hands
I reach for You
