Happy Monday!









Phil & I spent a wonderful weekend away for our wedding anniversary. We went to Virginia, and I think we're in love. It is sooo beautiful! How blessed are we to live just a couple of hours away from all this God-art?







Wish I had time to blog all about it, but I've hit the ground running, with just a few days to get ready to take the kiddos and head out for our road trip north.







I think I love this new song by Sidewalk Prophets a bit more every time I hear it.


If I saw You on the street
And You said come and follow me
But I had to give up everything
All I once held dear and all of my dreams

Would I love You enough to let go
Or would my love run dry
When You asked for my life

When did love become unmoving?
When did love become unconsuming?
Forgetting what the world has told me
Father of love, You can have me
You can have me

If You’re all You claim to be
Then I’m not losing anything
So I will crawl upon my knees
Just to know the joy of suffering

I will love You enough to let go
Lord, I give you my life
I give you my life

I want to be where You are
I’m running into Your arms
And I will never look back
So Jesus, here is my heart

When did love become unmoving?
When did love become unconsuming?
Forgetting what the world has told me
Father of love, You can have me
You can have me

- Sidewalk Prophets: You Can Have Me








Today, in the middle of countdown busy-ness, I'm giving thanks

for an Abba who knows
how to give good gifts to his children

for a God who is worthy
of giving up everything for

for a Father whose love is enough
when dreams are stripped away

for a Creator who supplies what I need
to do all He asks me to do
