Just a glimpse of me...

Do you ever feel STUCK? In 2000, I began looking for answers to some tough questions in my life. I'd searched high & low and finally conceded to search the promises found in the Bible. Those promises have sustained & guided me through the loss of a parent, the struggle with anxiety & depression, the loss of a valued relationship and so much more! I've found joy amid the pain. And, I want to share it with you!

Full Participation!!

I'm in the process of writing a note to my sisters about our sweet, little "GLAMdaughter". Tomorrow will be her Half Birthday (as her Mommy calls it)... 6 months old!!  I'll accompany her & her Mommy to a breast feeding support group sponsored by the local hospital to get her weighed & measured tonight. Only then will I be ready to send out my note! We're pretty sure she's broken the 16 pound mark :)
Waiting for the praise to start.
Getting there early to get a great seat for our little one :)
As I wrote, I was telling them about how A totally gets IN to the worship service each Sunday at our church. She yells out, waves her arms, kicks her feet -- all while smiling a huge toothless smile! I stated, "She totally wears herself out in worship." 
As I wrote those words, I had the thought of how incredibly pleasing that would be to God if we each did that!
I pray that I will give my ALL as I worship Him - whether in a church service or at a small gathering of friends or sitting beside a firefly-lit soybean field at night in the middle of nowhere! 

Found this picture from a few weeks ago and just had to add it on today...
"She totally wears herself out in worship."

How do YOU worship?
