I would rather...

So, before I write anything more...Brian went to Haiti.  He was able to lead a team from our church and it was a truly amazing trip.  But, I will not write any more about it.  He is going to write his first blog post coming soon!  So, look for it.  
I just returned from a worship conference in Dallas.  It was really great.  I can't say enough about the kindness of the Lord towards me in some of the quiet moments during much of the singing and worship times.  But...I have to say, something that stood out to me over and over was my gratitude and thankfulness to be a wife and mom.  I was just so grateful about how the Lord has given and given and given and as I danced and saw my prego silhouette, I was just so humbled at how much I love the treasures of my children.  

All of that to say...Tonight as I was bathing Jada and talking with her about the things that were on her mind like babies, animals, and bubbles, I teared up.  It was by far the sweetest "worship" moment of the week for me.  What I mean is that, the Lord's simple love and kindness was so rich and real.  I just wanted to say "thank you" over and over.  I realized that I would rather really live in each moment with Jada, Kiva (kicking me like crazy :)), and Brian.  Simply put...I am grateful.  


  1. i've been thinking about you... and i'm so glad that you danced!

  2. When Jayda said, "emmmweeee!!" at church Sunday, I almost cried. So precious!
