Mother's Day

Bryan and Matt made my Mother's Day so special :) We woke up early to get ready for church, but before I got up Matt brought me my gift. I got the book "To Live is Christ" by Beth Moore and the sweetest card from Bryan. :) We headed off to church and heard a wonderful message. A man sang a very tear jerking song about moms that blew me away. The song is by Stephen Curtis Chapman, but the man that sang it at church blew him out of the water. :) (Lyrics are at the bottom)



We then had lunch at home and I had a great nap. When I woke up, Matt had cleaned up the whole kitchen. That's one of the best gifts I could ever ask for. haha! For supper we ate at a great bar-b-que place called Jim n' Nicks. Somehow they lost our order so we waited a long time. They were very apologetic and offered us free chocolate pie! How could we pass that up!?

Here are a couple of pictures of me and our little man from yesterday. I'm thankful the Lord gave him to us. Also, Happy Mother's Day to my mom and Matt's mom. We wished we could have been there with you both to celebrate. You were definitely in our thoughts and we're always grateful for you. Hope all of you mother's out there had a great one too!



One Heartbeat at a Time

by Steven Curtis Chapman | from the album This Moment

You're up all night with a screaming baby
You run all day at the speed of life
And every day you feel a little bit less
Like the beautiful woman you are

So you fall into bed when you run out of hours
And you wonder if anything worth doing got done
Oh, maybe you just don't know
Or maybe you've forgotten

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

With every "I know you can do it"
Every tear that you kiss away
So many little things that seem to go unnoticed
They're just like the drops of rain over time
They become a river

And you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
How you're changing the world
You're changing the world

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
Oh, I believe that you
You are changing the world
One little heartbeat
At a time

And you're changing the world
