Singin' my little heart out!

A close friend of mine told me to check out the song, "Your Cries Have Awoken the Master" by Mike & Kelly Bowling. Oh my. I YouTube'd it and they started singing the second verse and I went cold. Seriously! It was like that song had been written exactly about me, because it described my emotions the morning I went into labor with June Claire and it couldn't be stopped. You have to check it out. I'm still crying 10 minutes later!

I love it when a good song just touches your heart like that. I wrote that one down to burn onto a CD later. And I'm even going to pick it out on the piano and I might even sang it one Sunday. ;) Or not. I don't want to run people out of the church! :)

Today has been a good day. June Claire had a good day, except for a brief moment tonight when her heart rate went up in the high 200's and low 300's. She self corrected within a short time so that's the good thing. Bad thing is they have to keep an eye on her and possibly give another blood transfusion (that's #6, but who's counting?) But I'm not worried. Oh no. Because Michael and I have cried out to God and prayed more in these last eight weeks than we EVER have in our ENTIRE lives and I KNOW our cries have reached Jesus! He is gonna take care of us from here on out. Even if we take home bad news with us -- He is still here with us. The past two weeks I have really been struggling with my trust, with my emotions, etc. and I have just lost my peace. Well, I prayed and I prayed tonight and I finally broke through that fear. My nerves have been getting bad the past couple of days. It seems like I've been snapping at Michael and Sara and I hate that. Honestly, the whole living in a 6x6 (okay, I'm joking, but only a little) room and constantly being on top of each other (hello? sleeping in a twin bed with your 2 year old? not fun.) is wearing us all thin. I try to go for walks each day with Sara, but if you don't go before 6 am or 8 pm you're going to suffocate to death. It sure is a different kind of humid down here!

To keep myself busy, I've been thinking about all the "home improvement" projects I want to do when we get back. First up is DEFINITELY the nursery. Have ya'll seen those signs that are handpainted with Scripture? I want to get on for the nursery and for Sara's room. I can't decide what verse I want, though -- any suggestions? And does anyone have any suggestions as to maybe a good Etsy seller that will do them? I am nooooot creative like that. This is the girl who was asked to drop Art class in high school so she wouldn't fail and mess up her GPA. Yeah. It was THAT bad.

Tomorrow is a new day and I am excited for the fresh start it will bring us! We're on the downward slide now. :)

I'm listening to the song right now; it's beautiful!

We have a painting in Molly's room that is of Deuteronomy 7:6 that I absolutely LOVE. I found it at a shop here in Macon. I'd be happy to send you a picture if you'd like. I also have a blog friend, Melissa of Initial Designs who can paint anything you can imagine. She's very reasonable, too, price-wise! Email me if you want Melissa's info:

Hang in there and keep your beautiful faith! This song is awesome awesome awesome. It kind of reminds me of Amy Grant's song "Better than a Hallelujah"
