In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling. Exodus 15:13

Amber posted this video of the interview from the wife of the pastor who was shot in Illinois. She gives a testimony to how great our God is. You will be glad you took the time to watch.

Klaire's first birthday was on Saturday while we were at youth camp. I was not happy about it. I so wanted the day to be all about her. Everyone to be focused on my baby girl. But that was not what happened. I sound so bitter don't I? We had a great day and tons of people gave her lots of birthday wishes and love. I know we need to have a party for her to do all the cake stuff but I feel like we missed out by not doing it on that day. Does that totally sound dumb?
I think I was expecting the same as it was for Karoline. Her day was HER DAY!
All this to say, I am having a hard time with this all.

I find myself wanting and TRYING so hard to keep them on the same page. I want them to walk at the same age, talk at the same age, get equal parts of dinner, etc. I don't want to leave room for one to make fun of the other or leave room for, well I hope you understand what I am saying.

I know that they are two different people and the Lord has given them different gifts and I want them to be excellent at them.

I am realizing while I write this that I am not talking about gifts but material things.

Well there it is...blah

A Page is Turned

Three monumental steps...

1. Klaire is walking around everywhere!

2. Karoline is wearing pull ups and some big girl panties!

3. Krystal is going to be a stay at home mom!

I can just hear the Hallelujah chorus resounding around me now!

And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to-morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; And his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
Exodus 17:9-12

We all go through trials and valleys. How do we realistically "hold up" one another during these times?

*Email me if you don't comment. I am really interested to know what you think. :)
