Today's Message of the Day is:

Life is short, Stand out, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.

Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.

(You gotta love Jim!)
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

There's no victory without a battle

The hurt and pain that I feel is nothing compared to the deep love You have for me.

I feel pain whenever I think about my loss. Nothing reminds me better to run to Your arms than this deep sinking feeling, like the world is going down the drain. The whole world is swaying. You're the only thing that's steady.
Thank You for changing my priorities. Thank You for reminding me that You're the only thing that matters. Thank You for taking away earthly loves so that I can love You more.

Nothing can replace You. Thank You for giving me this time with You and You alone, where You are the only constant, You are my fortress, my strong tower, my salvation.
Thank You, that You know best. Thank You for Your wisdom that is so much greater than mine.

Thank You for being in control of this situation.Thank You for doing what is best for me, even when it seems so contrary to what I might think is best.
You can do anything‚ Jesus, and You allowed this, so I praise and thank You for it.
All things work together for good to them that love God and to them who are called according to His purpose. Thank You for being powerful enough to turn even this painful situation for my good.

Devin is 8 today!

Today is officially Devin's 8th birthday! We only celebrated it earlier because his grandparents were up visiting from Michigan. Sorry those pictures of his birthday were all blurry, I didn't have a good camera and couldn't figure out the settings. But I do have some good shots of us when we took Mike's parents to the boarder and we all stopped at Niagara falls. It was a beautiful day! Then later on we took Devin out to play glow in the dark miniature golf. It was a pretty sweet set up, lots of fun! Today we'll take him out to a mall that has indoor car racing and a playground.

I'm so proud of my boy, he's really growing up so fast. He's been through a lot with me being sick for so long but has been brave through it all, such a sweetheart! I'm not sure what the future holds, but now that I'm better I can really pour into him like I want too. and just enjoy our times together more.
So Happy 8th Birthday Devin!
