Today is another gorgeous day here in Indy. The sun is shining, the birds are flocking around Grandpa’s new bird feeder, the breeze is blowing and the garden is growing! I found some perfectly ripened tomatoes! Yum!
Thanks, Lord, for another lovely day.
Do you ever take for granted all that God has given you?
Sad to say that I do sometimes. I get caught up in my wants and desires – like having a baby, having my own house…and I lose track of all the blessings I have already.
I know I’m going to heaven when I die, I have a wonderful, loving husband, whom I love so much and cannot believe I have sometimes, I have a place to live, I have a loving family that I love a lot, a wonderful, loving little puppy who thinks he’s my firstborn child, lol, a great, loving church family that I appreciate more and more.
God’s given me much to be thankful for. I want to break out in song of one of my favorite songs ‘How Could I Ask For More’ by Cindy Morgan. I think I’ll share the words with you while they’re in my heart.
There’s nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon,
Waking to the sunlight, being cradled by the moon.
Catching fireflies at night, building castles in the sand,
Kissing Mama’s face goodnight and holding Daddy’s hand.
Thank You, Lord…How could I ask for more?
Running barefoot through the grass, a little hide and go seek.
Being so in love that you can hardly eat.
Dancing in the dark, when there’s no one else around.
Being bundled ‘neath the covers, watching snow fall to the ground.
Thank You, Lord… How could I ask for more?
So many things I thought would bring me happiness,
Some dreams that are reality today.
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that I’ve made along the way.
If there’s anything I’ve learned from this journey I’m on:
The simple truth will keep you going, simple love will keep you strong.
There are questions without answers, and flames that never die.
And heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise.
So….Thank You, Lord….How could I ask for more?
How can we ask for more!?
I think I’m going to make that my life’s themesong. And my site’s themesong. I have always loved it and felt it deeply, but now more than ever.
I still long to be a mama, to hold my precious child in my arms. But I think what I need to do is be thankful for what I do have here in this moment, and leave it up to God.
Wow. So simple to say, but can I do it? Pray for me. Pray for my patience and my contentment. I know that depression will rear its ugly head again. Despair will haunt me again. But God is on my side, and He will remind me once again of all I have to thank Him for.
I’ll leave you with a video of the song. (Added in 2014) God bless you.
