Everything Glorious...


Inspired by Tamara's new post, I've decided to follow suit...


1. Stranger than Fiction: In my Top 5! Its beautiful & brilliant!
It'll make you cry & laugh. Always a good combo!

2. Shoes & Feet Pics: I just love them. I think feet tell a story about where you've been and where you're going! My new house will be covered with pics of feet.

3. The Book of Ruth. I recently read a fictional novella about Ruth by Francine Rivers called Unshaken. It inspired me to dig deeper into the book of Ruth, which has been life changing. But that is a whole other post!

4. Everything Glorious by Passion. This is a live worship CD done by Chris Tomlin, Charlie Hall, David Crowder & Matt Redman! Its sooo good!
5. Mark. I know thats really cheese ball, right? But I am just so in love. We've been together for almost 8 years and married almost 6, and I really can't imagine my life without him. There have been some really dark days in my life where I thought I couldn't face it anymore, and there he was: courageous & strong, ready to lift me out. God has used him in my life to confront things in my life that would hurt me, to challenge me to be who I was meant to be, and most of all, to make me laugh. It has been laughter that has brought us through so much. And I really can't imagine walking this road alone!

Heaven was needing a hero...

Today I was thinking about Jachin alot. For those of you that didn't know Jake, he was one of our good friends that died in 2003. I think the reason I was thinking about him, is just all the new things that are happening in our church lately. The births of the babies especially are things that he would have loved. We watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition tonite and it was a family who had lost there teenage son. I wept my face off. It made me miss Jake all the more. Jo-dee Messina was on the show and she sang this song:




I came by today to see you

I had to let you know

If I knew the last time that I held you was the last time

I'd have held you and never let go

It's kept me awake nights, wondering

Lie in the dark, just asking why

I've always been told

You won't be called home

Until it's your time

I guess heaven was needing a hero

Somebody just like you

Brave enough to stand up

For what you believe

And follow it through

When I try to make it make sense in my mind

The only conclusion I come to

Is heaven was needing a hero

Like you



I remember the last time I saw you

You held your head up proud I laughed inside

When I saw how you were standing out in the crowd

You're such a part of who I am

Now that part will just be void

No matter how much I need you now

Heaven needed you more


Cause heaven was needing a hero

Somebody just like you

Brave enough to stand up

For what you believe

And follow it through

When I try to make it make sense in my mind

The only conclusion I come to

Is heaven was needing a hero

Like you


Heaven was needing a hero and that's you
