Girls Write Out
Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Okay, it's my day to blog so I'm going to post several things, but the most important day has arrived today! Our Punky is one today!! I was cleaning up her daddy's little rocking chair to take to her (she loved the rocking chair in the pictures and sang to herself while she rocked) and I had to think about the nature of hope. I kept Dave's rocker and Kara's too, but for quite a few years I never really thought I'd be blessed with a grandchild. When God says He will give us the desires of our hearts, He really means it!

She has changed our lives. I prayed for her before she was ever born, and I love this picture of her that looks like she's clasping her little hands to pray. God is so good it chokes me up. There was a song that our ACFW president wrote and the choir sang at conference this weekend. I'm posting the words below. they so touched my heart with God's goodness. I'm so thankful to Him for all the blessings He gives and am so thankful for our little darling. Here are more pictures of her:


God is speaking
I am silent
God is moving
I am moved

God is warring
I am resting
In the power
Of His love

God is brilliant
I’m reflecting
God is awesome
I’m in awe

God is pouring
I’m receiving
He is filling
I am filled

God is ruling
I am bowing
God is humbling
I lay down

God is more than
Minds can fathom
He will fill us
Even now

God is speaking
I am silent

She is precious. I must say there is something to that grandparent thing. My parents adore my children and I thank God everyday to have such wonderful parents.
Celebrate-she's only one ONCE.

Punky is so beautiful. She is such a blessing. Treasure each moment because she will be grown before you know it!

Precious little girl! Time has flown since she was first born!

Thanks for printing the words to the ACFW choir song. I was sitting in front of a speaker and the music trac overpowered the ladies beautiful voices and it was hard to hear the lyrics. Since our prez Cynthia wrote them I wanted to know them!

Colleen, what a beautfil litle girl. I also, waited 8 years before God added two granddaughers to our family through adoption. Addi, almost 7, is in the picture you see here. What a diva. She is deaf, but with cochlear implants can hear. What a miracle God gave her.

I had not heard this song. I look forward to listening to it - the words, alone, touch my heart.

I loved hearing about your "girls week out"! What a great time you all must have had.
