Just sitting here listening to the Newsboys and Build Us Back came on. Love it! So true!! My life is far from perfect and all my safety nets are torn, but God builds me back from all of that. He makes me stronger everyday. He will mend the broken safety nets, He will pay the bills, He will fix the cars when they break, He will take care of everything in my life. There is so much freedom in this...for so long I've been looking for a way to be truly me, to be the real person that I am...and all along the answer was in front of me. Just trusting Jesus makes me more free than I've ever been in my life, all those old chains are broken. Everyday He breaks down more and more of those walls I have built around myself, everyday I become a little more the real me that I'm meant to be!!! Build Us Back Newsboys We've been crumbled, we've been crushed City walls have turned to dust Broken hands and blistered feet We walk for miles to find relief When the thief takes, when our hopes cave You build us back You build us back When the earth shakes, when the world breaks You build us back You build us back We are scared, we are poor All our safety nets are torn We've been humbled to our knees From these ruins, we believe When the thief takes, when our hopes cave You build us back You build us back When the earth shakes, when the world breaks You build us back You build us back Redeemer, redeem us Restorer, restore us Oh build us back Though the mountains be shaken, the hills be removed Your unfailing love remains After all that's been taken, Your promise, still sacred You build us back with precious stones When the thief takes, when our hopes cave You build us back You build us back When the earth shakes, when the world breaks You build us back You build us back

Wow. It's 2012 and it's already flying by. Attie's birthday is tomorrow, my baby will be 6!! It just does not seem possible that she is that old. We had a little party for her Saturday and she had fun with Olivia all day, she loved her presents and cake. Next item is to get ready for Kaelyn's birthday in a few weeks. She will be 11 and that makes me feel old...I have a solid decade of parenting behind me...I am old. Chris has started back to school for this term...oh joy. He's probably enjoying Cal 2...the oddball that he is. I am, how to say it right, learning. Yeah, learning. I'm growing...that is for sure...but into what I do not know yet. We'll see...maybe I'll be really cool or something.
