Happy Half Birthday!

Six months old today!
Six months...that's half a YEAR!! I think I am in denial. Just the other day David was looking at her and said that he didn't know how he would ever be able to walk her down the aisle, she is just too precious to give away! I think that day will come way too fast, so I am taking loads of pictures of these wonderful days that we have right now. They are each one such a blessing!

It reminds me of that song...

Hold tight to the sound of the music of living,
Happy songs from the laughter of children at play;
Hold my hand as we run
through the sweet fragrant meadows,
Making mem'ries of what was today.

We have this moment to hold in our hands
And to touch as it slips
through our fingers like sand;
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come,
But we have this moment today.

Okay, I got all weepy just typing that! Oh goodness, the things motherhood does to you!
(Please pardon the creepy looking stuffed bee that she is holding in the above picture! It made her happy so I went with it.)

Wanted: Attitude shift!

This really got to me this morning.

"It's not what this church can do for you,
but what you can do for Jesus Christ and His church!
Think of that attitude shift, saying,

'God, You made this life and You have called me for more than just to save me. You have rescued me so that I could become a rescuer!'

It's not your-skin-and-how you-can-save-it, it's how you can spend it for His glory."

That's the ATTITUDE!
