The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Let my love give you roots and help you find your wings.....

I heard this song for the first time last week and then Chad had it on his ipod today and I heard it for the second time. I have to say this song really touches my heart. I encourage you to listen and watch the video especially if you have children!! The lyrics are beautiful, things that I always want Sam to know. As we are watching Sam grow it has been such an exciting yet very bittersweet time.
My baby... he's just growing up so fast, right before our eyes, time is just passing by!! He is off to kindergarten, so independent, the most loving little boy I could ask for, and most importantly he has recently accepted Christ as his savior and will be baptized this Sunday and to God I am so very thankful and so blessed to have Sam.

Sam as this song says I pray God will fill your heart with dreams
I will always be here for you no matter what life brings
Pray that faith will give you the courage to do great things
Let my love give you roots and help you find your wings

Tears as you take off but I will cheer as you fly

I know there is lots of great fun times for us ahead and memories that will be made but I look at how fast these past 5 years have gone and it makes me realize how fast they will continue to pass. I just want you to always know how proud we are of you and how much we love you ~ MOM

Lyrics to Find your wings by Mark Harris

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
And If I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories


It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly

Thanks for making me cry this morning! Seriously, that is a beautiful song and an even more beautiful sentiment from mother to son. Precious. And that is so exciting about the Baptism!! Praise God!! YAY!!
