A funny joke by: Maggie

(it actually is funny)

Maggie: What's so bad about being an octopus?

Maggie: It takes a long time to wash your hands before lunch.

Maggie was helping me bring in a "HUGE" box of paper towels yesterday. I was holding the door open for her. She said, "um.... um.....mommy" and she struggled to bring in the papertowels. Then, she blurted out in a loud voice "Mommy, I love you."

I told her that I loved her, too. She said "I just wanted you to know in case I pass out!"

Remembering to praise Him

You know that song that says, Still I will worship you.
It says:
I will worship You, in the midnight hour
I will worship You, when I'm in the fire
I will worship You, when all hope seems gone
I will stand and proclaim that You are my God
I will worship You.

We started out our vacation on a high. I found out that I was pregnant. After all of the ups and downs of the last year with our foster children, maybe this was an answer to prayer.

We ended our trip in the E.R. I lost the baby at almost 7 weeks along. I am in a lot of pain but we had to come home the next day and it is nice to be able to recover in my house and not in a hotel room.

Though we are very upset about this, I have to keep going. Maggie can't see me breaking down all day long. We have to eat, so we went to get groceries.

On the way home, we were listening to a worship cd and "indescribable" came on. I had in on kind of loud and didn't realize that Maggie was paying attention to the music. Then, I hear the cutest little voice from the backseat singing it word for word. It made me so happy.

I told her that I loved hearing her sing and she said "i sing because I believe in God and I believe in His word."

I do a lot of things wrong and I wallow in my self doubt a lot, but we are trying so hard to raise her to be a godly woman. I have to remember to count my blessings and not dwell on our sadness.

I admit, I don't know much about what is going on there, but this is a powerful blog about Iran.

I think this sums things up so well.

We were born to be free. God created us to be free.
