greater things are yet to come...greater things are still to be done...AMEN

It seems that at least once a month God uses one song to just run me over and make me gaze upon Him in a different way.

You’re the God of this city, You’re the King of these people, You’re the Lord of this nation, You are…

You’re the Light in this darkness, You’re the Hope to the hopeless, You’re the peace to the restless, You are…

there is no one like our God, there is no one like our God…

greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city, greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done here.

We live in a nation and city that is blessed beyond measure. We know that God has done so much so far in the life of our city, and in us. So as you listen to this song may the Lord sing over you. May He sing the words of Jeremiah 29:11-15 over you. The song that says no matter what you are going through I am there. Whether it be good or bad, just know that GREATER things are yet to come and GREATER things are still to be done. We serve and have the privilege of knowing a GREAT God that is able to do more that we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Check it out below, and may the God of this city, be the God, Lord and Saviour of the city inside of you and us all, our hearts!!!

a year ago.....

it was this month one year ago that i felt the first innocent kick. i was at work and i thought i felt small air bubbles. later that night, i was laying flat on my back on the couch, and this is where i felt it again. oh, how i wish i could just feel it one more time. i long for those rib punches. the bigger he got, the more he nestled his little bottom up into my left rib. i would give endless "butt/back" rubs and he loved it. he would push out for more. every once in a while i swear i can still feel the innocent small kick just saying "mom, i am still right here." i know it really isn't a kick, but it sure is an amazing feeling.

as the fall sets in and winter hangs in the balance, i am constantly worried about him being "cold." as we put another log on the fire to keep our home cozy, i can't fathom that he has to lay in the cold crisp fall air. jesse tries to remind me that he is warm all the time, but i just can't seem to stop worrying. i want to take him a blanket every night. i want to hold him close and keep him warm. i want to lay down with him and cover his grave. i just want him here.

if you happen to read this entry, please pray that he is safe, warm, and happy in the Lord's arms. i am also praying that he is hand-picking a brother or sister for mommy and daddy to have here on Earth.

God Bless,

we miss you all.....

On streets of gold, walk many children with candles all aglow.
Happy faces, shining smiles, but there is one that stands alone.
Oh and when asked to join the others she just smiles at them and says
I cannot keep my candle lit from the tears from my mothers eyes.
For my mother is now weeping just for me.
Although she does not understand that I'm living in this promised land
Where my candle's light can take away her tears.
Oh sometimes it seems so lonely, in our hearts we seem so sad,
From a loss of our precious loved ones and the memories that we have,
Oh but keep your eyes on their lights, let their candle shine so bright.
For they cannot keep their candles lit, from the tears that we shed,
So remember that they're living in His love.
As Jesus walks with them, let their life shine within,
And their candles light can take away all our tears....
