Let the YEAR?! countdown begin...


We are now officially in September, whether or not any of us are ready for it! It's strange to think that Door of Hope is still a year away from today, Lord willing! I don't know if it is because it seems so far off that I've been questioning it's reality or because I tend to be such a forgetful little girl sometimes! A thousand years from now, when I am basking in the love and light of Christ, I wonder if I will look back my life and laugh at the flighty little bird my heart tended to be...I'm pretty sure I will! When doubts and longings for specific "hows" and "whens" start creeping in I am so glad to know that I know that I know that Jesus is alive and that my ransomed heart is HIS, that my sin is forgiven and that one day I will be with Him always. In the end, that's all I really need to know...

Sweet Jesus Christ my sanity
Sweet Jesus Christ my clarity
Bread of heaven broken for me
Cup of salvation held up to drink
Jesus, Mystery

Christ has died and Christ is risen, and Christ will come again

Celebrate his death and rising
Lift your eyes, proclaim his coming

The Journey of Surrender

It is a pretty spectacular thing: watching a family be born right in front of your eyes. To see years of prayers answered in a moment. ...
