Post #3

So I've kinda been in a funk lately (just incase you in bloggy land hadn't noticed) and I don't like writing when I am in a funk. In fact, I don't really like doing much of anything but hiding under the covers on my bed (and maybe eating lots and lots and LOTS of sweet, sugary, goodness that my hips really DON"T need!!!!) But seeing as hiding isn't really practical ( my kids think hide and seek is a GREAT game and I can never stay hidden for long), I go and I turn up my worship music REALLY loud and dance with my big kids (Owen just laughs from his highchair, or attempts to climb up my leg if he's on he floor).

My two favourite songs right now (other than World's Apart by Jars of Clay cuz that's my all time favourite and has been since I was 16) are Mighty to Save and My Savior My God. But The Power of The Cross is a close third. They speak to my heart and fill me in a way I have been longing for, for awhile.

On a totally unrealted note, I am SO thankful for my kids and Troy. I am thankful that they are all healthy and full of life and energy. There are so many heartwrenching stories in blogs I come across, families who have been devastated by something. And I am blown away that God has seen fit to spare my family. I will never understand why some bare a pain I know nothing about while others are spared. I'm not God and it's not for me to understand, but I stop and question Would I have the strength of faith to make it to the other side, not just with my faith intact, but with a faith stronger for it? I can't answer that because I haven't been there. I don't want to go there (although I know that they haven't wanted to go there either)
My life, it is such a blessing and one that I often find I take (very much) for granted. I don't often remember to stop and praise Him for this wonderful, blessing filled life of mine. I get caught up in...I don't even know what... and forget about the things that truly matter. And my friends, those things, aren't really things at all.
Tonight my heart is aching for this family in particular, but there are others too. I don't have the words to pray but I am thankful that Jesus can interceed on our behalf when we do not know what or how to say it.

This post is starting to take a trip down a path I wasn't really ready for tonight. So thank you for sticking with me.

"The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17

Funny you should mention Mighty to Save, because it just started playing on my iTunes! How strange! :P
