Our youngest daughter is absolutely adorable. For the last three years she has picked a song and that has been her favorite song for the whole year.
Last year the song was "Come Thou Fount." Well she couldn't say the title correctly so when she wanted us to play this song she would say can you play "Come Fine Fountain." Even if she heard just a few measures of this song she knew it was her song and she would get all excited and say,"Mommy it's Come fine Fountain."
The year before that her favorite song was "Victory in Jesus", she sang this all the time over and over. When it was Christmas she would sing "Away in a Manger" and add "Victory in Jesus" right along with it. This is how she sang this mix:
Away in a Manger my Saviour forever
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood
We thought it was very cute and was very true.
Well this year she again has picked a new song. Only now she tells us it is "her song", there is no name just "her song". It is very cute she walks around the house all day humming the tune because she doesn't know all the words yet but I am sure by the end of the year she will be singing every stanza. And the song for this year is "In Christ Alone."

O.k. everywhere I look people are pregnant or having babies. It really kinda stinks. I think I am o.k. with everything and then WHAM it hits me right in the face and I realize I am not o.k. I was just talking to a dear friend yesterday about how I want to be content. I want to be at the point that I am o.k. if I don't have anymore children. Well I AM NOT!!!! Why can't all this craziness in my head just stop.
Last night I laid in bed and talked to God for probably half the night. Which is not a bad thing but believe me I wasn't praising God the whole time, I think I mostly complained. I know God knows my heart and He knows how I feel but for some reason I felt like I needed to verbally tell Him. Why? I have no clue.
I know it will take time, but how much time? I really don't know but I will be glad when I am not so up and down and am truly content with what the Lord is doing in my life. I am so not there yet.

Gees. I have really had a hard time blogging lately. Life just seems to be uneventful right now which I think is a good thing. I have set some goals for this year and I am trying to work on them everyday.My main goal for this year is "contentment ." I am going to try to understand and experience true contentment that will only come from God. I know it won't be easy but with Christ nothing is impossible. I will keep you all updated on how things are going.
Now I must go so I can pack for a weekend with just Daddy and I!!!!
