this song has meant a lot to me lately.
like. i BLARE it at my house.
or anytime it's on the radio.
God is moving at my church.
wild. UNMISTAKABLE GOD.
he has shaken me. for the good. to the core.
it was time.
SOAK up this song. every word.
it is powerful.
and most importantly.
God loves YOU!
the Creator of the Universe loves YOU!

Calli turned SIX on the 11th of October...
that's like already 2 weeks ago.
I am just finding my desk,
apparently my new organization system is really working this year.
so depressing, but that is another ballgame to talk about. :)
Calli. she shines. she smiles. a LOT. she giggles. a LOT.
she is my hugger. and kisser. she is loving kindergarten, and also loves mommy
picking her up at 1 pm. :))
she writes her a's backwards almost every.single.time.
it doesn't seem to matter that she writes them in her name a lot.
she counts well, but misses 13 pretty frequently. what does that mean, anyway?
she loves to color. and read.
she LOVES karolina. they are very, very good friends.
she takes care of her needs. sometimes before mommy. :/
here's some pictures of our celebration of calli ann...
[you can look here to read about the day she arrived, and you can look here
to read about her delivery...]

it took every ounce of courage i had to show up at my first Moms In Prayer meeting.
it was held at a church down the street, and i had a few acquaintances that attended,
but no one that i was really "close" with.
i went. and i went the next week.
and continued, even when I didn't "feel" like dragging my other 4 littles out the door.
i went out of my comfort zone, and started praying outloud. in front of others.
and it got easier. and easier.
and now. NOW. almost 6 years later, i am leading that same Moms in Prayer group in my home.
WOW. God astounds me sometimes. well. most of the time actually.
How about you?
so...if you are an Octorara mom, and you want to pray for your children...please come.
it is a small group of moms who meet the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesdays of each month.
bring your littles...they can hang on your lap, or play in my basement.
and we pray. sometimes we cry.
we.are.real. life moms. sharing in the blessing of mothering children together.
situations have come into my life.
and shaken me.
i cannot waste time NOT praying for my kids, and their friends, and their school.
it is a passion.
if you are not an Octorara mom, but would like to see if your public school has a MIP group,
check out their website: www.momsinprayer.org. there is a place there, where you can search for a group. or if you just want to check out their website, go for it...
They should be arriving any minute. :)
okay. so we had a most fabulous time in chile. but while we were there, my cousin, chelsea, got married. boo. that i wasn't there. ...
This song is helping me be a better wife. mom. daughter. sister. friend. period. It is also helping me clean my house. :)) and my kid'...
