How could I ask for more?

well today is another gorgeous day here in indy. the sun is shining, the birds are flocking around grandpa’s new birdfeeder, the breeze is blowing and the garden is growing! i found some perfectly ripened tomatoes! yum!

thanks Lord for another lovely day.

well, the state fair happens soon, and if we don’t go it will be the first we’ve missed in years. but our vacation is the 19th – 25th, so we need every spare dollar we have. we’ll see, we’ll see…i always especially hate to miss Christian music day at the fair…

well, i gave zhou the drawing of mary for her birthday and she loved it. she said it’s the best gift she’s ever gotten *U* – this makes me happy, and also more curious about whether i should sell drawings. it would be fun, and pretty easy. i just need to see if people are interested in it.

sometimes you take for granted all that God has given you. at least i do sometimes. i get caught up in my wants and desires – like having a baby, having a house…and i lose track of all the blessings i have. i know i’m going to heaven when i die, i have a wonderful loving husband, who i love so much and cannot believe i have sometimes, i have a place to live, very cost-effective! 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 will share the words with you while they are in my heart.

There’s nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon, waking to the sun light, being cradled by the moon. Catching fireflies at night, building castles in the sand, kissing Momma’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 have, and leave it up to God. wow. so simple to say, but can i do it? pray for me.

God bless you.
