"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Thankful



There's nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon

Walking to the sunlight, and being cradled my the moon

Catching fireflies at night

Building castles in the sand

Kissing Mam's face goodnight

And holding Daddy's hand


Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more?

Running barefoot in the grass

A little hide and go seek

Being so in love, that you can hardly eat

Dancing in the dark, when there's no one else around

Being bundled 'neath the covers, watching snow

Fall to the ground

Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more?



So many things I thought would bring me happiness

Some dreams that are realities today

Such an irony the things that mean the most to me

Are the memories that I've made along the way

So if there's anything I've learned

From this journey I am on

Simple truths will keep you going

Simple love will keep you strong

Cause there are questions without answers

Flames that never die

Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise

So thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord

How could I ask for more?



This is a Cindy Morgan song. Apparently it's so old that I can't even find it to play for you all.

Every time I hear it, I get that warm fuzzy feeling inside followed by a little taste of guilt.

Why do I ask for more?

Just trying to be thankful today!

Here's one thing that made me cry today that I am thankful for.

"A Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study" by Jen Hatmaker.

If you haven't read it and you are a woman, you should snatch this book up.

I love it....but I have to admit. I thought you wrote a poem! I need Jen's Bible study, do you know where you can buy it?

Surely Mardel carries it, but I also linked Jen's website. It's so good Becki. Wish we could do it together!

Molly,
I LOVE this song! It was actually one of the songs I had sung in our wedding -- it's just so beautiful, and so true! It's amazing how music can minister to our souls, isn't it? I think you and I are very much alike in that sense. I miss you, and I'm praying for you!
