Today my kids are getting their Spring pictures taken at school, so I thought I would take advantage of this moment and take my own pictures. It's so amazing how grown up Sidney and Lucas look in these pictures! I'm also amazed at what a beautiful relationship my kids have with their new brother. Just the other day Lucas was in the car sitting by Will and he was a little fussy. Lucas, being the great big brother that he is, started talking to Will trying to calm him down and he stroked his head really lightly. Will fell asleep and I couldn't stop smiling. I am blessed beyond measure.

I decided it was time for a change. Please give me some feedback and tell me what you think of the new design and title of my blog. I want you to be truthful! I'm also thinking about starting another blog for the children's ministry at my church to update everyone on events, programs, new ideas I have, and just fun stories about my ministry. Thanks for responding!

Pastor Kris asked on his blog and in his sermon "What would you do if you only had one month to live?" Of course I would tell my family how much they mean to me and tell everyone that I came in contact with about Jesus. But I was trying to imagine what my state of mind might be. What would change? Would my relationship with God change? I think that I would be in constant communication with Him asking that he would help me figure out what I should do before I die. I would be relying on God for EVERYTHING. For peace in my last breath, that my family would be taken care of, strength, courage, and . . . . everything. But, isn't that how God wants me to live now? My every step be an expression of worship to Him. That's why I'm here. I get too caught up in worldly things sometimes that I forget this. I want to live every day for Him and I hope that I don't wait until my last moments on Earth to remember to worship Him with all that I have.
