Welcome!

Welcome to a piece of our sweet journey of life. This blog is about our family life-- my husband, my type 1 diabetic kindergartner, my spunky pre-schooler, my newborn baby girl, and myself! Enjoy!

Lyrical Fridays

Back again for round two!

Here is a song that has recently come on the radio in the area where I live.  This song is so powerful because it reminds me that we are ALL loved by God.  He made us all and knows everything about us. 

Women especially fall victim to thoughts that we're not good enough, not pretty enough, not competent enough, not (insert whatever description here).  This song affirms the fact that we are beautiful, we are good enough, we are made in His image-- the image of GOD.

Being the mom of a type 1 diabetic child, daily I struggle with thoughts that I am not good enough.  If Michael's blood sugars are not in a certain range, I feel like I am not achieving the best for my child, even though I am trying my best.  These thoughts can be joy stealers.  However, this song tells me that I am God's.  That thought alone tells me, "you know what?  This is not our home.  This earth is temporary.  Heaven is our real home, and guess what? There is no pain in Heaven.  There is no sickness.  There is no crying.  No blood sugar checks.  No 2:00am finger pricks.  No bolusing.  And one day, I will be there."  And with every fiber of my being, I pray that my sons will be there too.

As you listen to this song, let the truth soak in.  You are created in His image and you are loved.

Who I Am


Another voice, another choice
To listen to words somebody said
Another day
I replay
One too many doubts inside my head

Am I strong
Beautiful
Am I good enough
Do I belong
After all
That I've said and done
Is it real
When I feel
I don't measure up
Am I loved

CHORUS
I'm running to the One who knows me
Who made every part of me in His hands
I'm holding to the One who holds me
‘Cause I know whose I am, I know who I am

I am sure I am Yours

Turning down
Tuning out
Every single word
That caused me pain
Unashamed
And unafraid
‘Cause I believe You mean it when You say

I am strong
Beautiful
I am good enough
I belong
After all
‘Cause of what You've done
This is real
What I feel
No one made it up
I am loved

CHORUS

I am sure I am Yours
I know who I am
I am sure I am Yours

Fearfully
Wonderfully
Perfectly
You have made me

I'm running to the One who knows me
I'm holding to the One who holds me

CHORUS

I am sure I am Yours
And I know who I am
*******
