Why oh why do funerals have such an effect on perspective?
Why can I not be this grateful for the life God has given me more often?
This is only a small token of my heart... :) So much to say.. so little space :) and seriously.. who would read it all!! ?? :)
With that I compose...
I love that my heart is not my own, that it belongs to my Father to guard and keep.
I love my Family. I would obviously not have the life i have without these families!!
Dad- for giving me his humor. Well some people think i am funny!! :) and for loving me like a daughter needs his father to love her.
Mom- for creating a passion for prayer and a heart to help people... and for loving the cold :)
Patti- for being a sister, so many people can't say they have one... and teaching me all i know about Kraft Mac-n-cheese.. and having awesome offspring
David- For being a chatterbox like me, I love it!! So glad you had the financial ability to adopt. I see
that as the heart of God--adoption! And I love Ellie!!!
Rich- For being a constant.. yes i know.. a constant what is the true question.. ahahhaahh I truly have
grown to love our chats and crazy phone conversations. Thanks for always having my back!
I Love My Inlaws and extended family
I love my church
Seriously... this section could go on and on and on and on.. with the droves of people who are stamped on my heart...
but I will keep it to my Pastors,
My leaders, My God given family. I know without a shadow of doubt that I am the woman i am today due to the love care, concern, bluntness *yes thankful* and protectiveness of Pastor Mark and Crystal!
The protection you gave when I didn't even know I needed it, the leading, the love, the prayers, and most of all the unconditional acceptance of me with all my failures, mothering *ahahhaahah*, and quirkiness!! :)
And Lastly but certainly not least is my Husband and kids..
My Eldest Beautiful Caleb-- My own Ravi Z. My little miracle. My first born of which will have his moms heart FOREVER.. but i will learn to share.. :) in 15 years or so :) ahhahahahaha
My daughter Aubrey~ her dancing feet, her love of life, her beauty and heart for others... my own little Mother Theresa that i know will impact nations!!!! I adore her with a full heart and big smile...
My baby boy Josiah~~ Lover of life and all that it entails.. shared bday with Tim Tebow-- A boy with a strength and intelligence that is sometimes scary!! :) he is sooo like his father in stature and strength. I can not wait to see what he becomes!!!
This is just a small portion of my heart today.. as we say goodbye to a man who loved God first, his family, and God's creation.
May I always remember how precious my life is....
As always stated
I LOVE MY LIFE!! :) :)
