I received this in my email a couple of times today, thought I would share

When I say that 'I am a Christian', I’m not shouting that I’m clean living,

I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride,

I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong,

I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success,

I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I’m worth it.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain,

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,

I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

Katie lost her first tooth!

January 31st was a special day around here for a couple of reasons. One of them was Katie lost her very first baby tooth!!  Her daddy, as the official tooth puller of the family, handled it extremely well. There were almost no “ohhh, my baby is growing up” moments. Almost.

Word Filled Wednesday

Too often I forget to praise God not only for the bountiful blessings in my life, but also for the beauty of His creation. Out for a drive one day we came across this stunningly beautiful view at the top of a hill. It was so breathtaking I stood on the side of the road in the freezing cold taking shot after shot hoping to be able to convey even a fraction of the awe I felt. That day, standing on that hill, it was like He was right there.

Whether it’s an answered prayer, an unexpected blessing, a hard time you’re believing in God to get you through, or a moment where He just takes your breathe away with His majesty-praise Him!! Give thanks and praise Him always and in all things!
