Chickadee Cherub

Many o’ times I am caught singing it to myself, “Thank you I’ve never know it to fail when you say… Thank you…each and every moment becomes a prayer”  In that moment I mean it completely.  I am grateful for that moment, that passing, that word, that person, that warm breeze, that bird chirping, that child laughing, I am thankful.


Many o’ times I am caught singing “Thank you….5 part harmony for my weary soul”  because in that moment I WANT to mean it, I KNOW it’s medicine for my soul, I KNOW gratitude is the very best thing, giving thanks in ALL circumstances.  “Thank you” rings in my head as I gain perspective on the moment.


In the BIG BIG moments, joyful or sorrow filled,  it is somehow easier to remember, well, because they are big and you MUST face them.  It’s the in-between moments.  The passing by moments.  The discipline of a child moments. The _____________.  THESE are the moments where gratitude may start more of a discipline and transform itself into a purposeful moment.


I thank you, God, on purpose and  “each and every moment becomes a prayer”.

…and thank you Michael Kelly Blanchard for writing a song that has been running through the nooks and crannies of my mind for nearly 18 years now. I am grateful God made you as you- I wouldn’t change a bit.

April showers bring…

May flowers and just in the nick of time!  We had schedule some family pictures to be taken and the field behind our house was just FULL of beautiful yellow buttercups!  I just love how God  paints a picture so perfect.  The day went great, no melt downs, no black eyes the day before, no wild cases of chicken pox breaking out (that was the last time we had a family photo scheduled) no outbreaks of the  pnuemonia (that was 2 times ago we had family pix).  ahhhhhhhhh just a beautiful sunny day and a WONDERFUL photographer named Heather. Hey- if she can handle our troop, she can handle ANYTHING!

Here is a sneak peak of her awesome shots…….more to come when she officially sends them our way!
