Please Pray

Hey all...I just got some devastating news this morning. My new friends Juska and Jona were 8 months pregnant for their first child and lost it last night. I'm not sure how or what happened. But please keep them and their family in your prayers. It's so so awful.

I will keep you posted when I find out more.
Just sucks.

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. It's called "We Are Broken" by Paramore. They aren't a "christian" band, but quite a few of their songs have some christian messages. The first time I heard this song I was on my way back from Haiti after an incredible trip. It had been on my ipod and I had just not listened to it yet, but as soon as I heard it, I fell in love with it immediately and if you know me, listened to it repeatedly for the next few hours.

I think that it has such a powerful message, and it was one I kept coming back to this week. This week was a tough one. It was one in which I constantly felt disappointed in myself, and under attack. I lost my temper, didn't hold my tongue when I knew I should, reacted without know the usual word vomit (sorry..that's kinda gross). I found myself constantly coming back and saying who was that? And falling back on my knees. Someone I really respect once said, "you can't slip and fall when you're on your knees". My problem this week was that I kept getting up.

I'm so thankful that He does keep me safe inside His arms like towers like the song says. And that when I fall His arms are there to steady me. What a pitiful example I am of Him, Praise Jesus for Grace. Being Broken is exactly where I need to be. It's where there is more of Him and less of me that it is truly as it should be.

Thank you Lord for your never ending grace and mercy. Thank you for unconditionally loving a sinner like me. Thank you for never giving up on me. Thank you for giving me the gift of being your light unto this broken and darkened world. I pray that You will shine through me, that it will be You that they see. I pray that there will always be less of me and more of You. Forgive me. Thank you Precious Jesus. In Your Name, Amen.

Children's Museum

I'm not feeling very creative right now, so this probably won't be a very entertaining post, not that mine usually are I suppose lol, anyway...I hope that this isn't a boring post! Thursday we went to this awesome children's museum in Winston Salem. It had really cool things for the kids to do, and we all had a lot of fun!

One of the many different rooms in it was a Krispy Kreme room where the kids actually got to put on hats and aprons and "run" all of the machines and "deliver" them in a truck! It was really cute and the kids had a blast!






Hope you're all having a Blessed day!
