Meet Me on Monday

Good morning fellow bloggers out there.
As I posted Saturday, Yesterday was my birthday and I was a little frightened by what my husband had secretly planned. Well let me put your minds at ease. It was a wonderful day. Obviously I lived through it. Ha ha. My children woke me up with lots of hugs and kisses. We went to church. Then we went and had a wonderful little lunch with my inlaws and some friends. A great time was had by all. My inlaws kept all 3 kids for the rest of the day so Danny and I could have some alone time to kick back and relax. So we played tourist in Seattle. WITH NO KIDS!!! It was a great birthday. It reminded me of when we were first dating. Only we lived in San Diego then.
Anyhoo, on to Meet Me On Monday!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Tomorrow (sunday) is my birthday. #41. I'm not sure if it will be a happy birthday or not. I wasn't at all bothered about turning 40. It was a milestone. An age that, at one time in my life, I didn't think I would live to see. Turning 41, however, is a little dperessing. It means that I am "in my 40's" uggh. Can't I stay 40 forever?

My husband has some special stuff planned. He won't tell me what he has planned (which is a little frightening) Don't get me wrong. Danny usually comes up with some pretty good ideas.....for the kids. I suppose I just need to give him the benefit of the doubt. Usually he asks me what I want to do...I'm scared.

So is you don't hear from me ever again....naw it won't be so bad...I hope

How Great is Our God

I was driving home from doing some shopping on base. I had my 3 children with me. My two little ones asleep in the back seat and my 9 year old riding along side me up front. We were listening to the radio. Serius XM The Message. A Christian station for those who don't know the station. After a song the dj comes on and he says "we hear these songs so often, we know all the words but after a time we get to the point where we don't really hear the words." He goes on to say, "now sit back and just listen, don't sing along just listen to the words." He plays Chris Tomlin's How Great is Our God. I have so much to praise God for. My husband, my happy home, my wonderful children, but most of all, Christ dying on the cross. I had lived a sinful life for so long. I had no idea such Grace existed. Imagine having such love that you would give your life to save the lives of your children. I would do it in a minute for my children. I don't deserve all that I have been given. It is by the grace of God that I have a new life. I have the security in knowing my destination after my body no longer walks this earth.

A friend of mine were talking on the phone the other day and the end times came up. Do I believe we are living it. Yes. I believe we have been for a long time. Do the things happening in other parts of the world frighten me. No. I know that the Lord will come and take his church home before anything happens to this earth.

Follow Friday

Finally Friday!
We have a nice long weekend planned. Hubby is off for 3 days. Woo hoo!! So we're taking the kiddos down to see some friends in Portland for the weekend. Hopefully the weather will be nice.
I've spent a busy week doing my volunteer work for our church. We had a sweetheart dinner Monday night. Lucky me was the contact person for tickets. So needless to say my phone was ringing off the hook all last week. It was a huge success. We had 2 couples get engaged and several celebrating their anniversaries. It was a wonderful time.
Our women's ministry is starting plans for a spring yard sale at the church. So I am going to starts playing with the fliers for our Sunday bulletins. It won't be until early April. This will be our second annual spring bazaar. Time for everyone to clean out those closets. Bring what you don't want any longer and drop it off. Heaven knows those of us with small children have a lot of clothes that our little ones have grown out of.
The men's ministry is planning a father/son weekend camp out. Our son is too little, he's only a year old, but you can "adopt" a son for the weekend. We have several single moms in our church. Some of the kids have no father figure in their lives so this is a great time for fatherless boys to get some "man time" as my husband put it. They are planning a Memorial day weekend trip up to Snoqualmie.
So ends the update on the goings on of my life.

Michael W. Smith - Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) (Live)

I came to Christ a little over 3 years ago. I believe I've gone into details about how and why and what my life had been like prior. I won't go into that again. Past is past. I am a new creation made in my Lords image. I have a dear friend who has been a child of Christ most of her life and I love talking to her. Not just about general life but about life as a Christian. I'd never known such peace. God's grace has given me a new life. One thing I have found amazing is the wonderful and passionate music I have found and been introduced to. Some of it moves me to tears. It's the power of the Holy Spirit washing over me when I hear the words.

This song moves me to tears every time I hear it. Even in church.

My chains truly are gone. I've been set free by His amazing grace.
