You may not be born yet, or maybe you are.
Don't worry little angel, I'm coming to get you.

Believe the unbelievable
Receive the inconceivable
See beyond our wildest imagination
Lord, we come with great expectations

Did ya hear? Bob Evans died.

Rich loves Bob Evans biscuits and gravy. Whenever he leaves work to go there he always says, "I've got a meeting with Bob, be back later."

We love you Bob and we'll miss you! Thanks for making such great sausage!

My dad had some kidney stones "removed" yesterday. He was a nervous wreck but sailed through the surgery just fine. They actually blasted them inside his body. He will expell them as he tinkles over the next few days. He's very, very sore but getting better.
I'm sure he'd love to recieve some get well wishes from everyone!

For Kelsey Smith


Steven Curtis Chapman
Album Title: Speechless
1 Thess. 4:13-14 & Heb. 6:9, 10:23

This is not at all how we thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile

And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father's smile and say well done

And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so

We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

The Children of War

This picture was on the internet today. It broke my heart to see the scared look on the boy's face trying to take shelter behind a U.S. soldier. I can't imagine being a kid living in Baghdad. Wish I could swoop down, grab them all and protect them.

The strangest part of this picture to me is the stark contrast of emotions. Some are just walking across the street looking in the direction of the gunshots, others are just standing around, some are running. I guess this image is evidence how the human mind can adjust to even unthinkable situations.

I'm still praying for resolution in Baghdad but I'm honestly not sure how this whole thing is going to end up.

These are the lillies blooming on the west side of my house.
There's only one little plant that comes up every year.
It blooms like crazy trying to make us proud of it.
