I actually copied this from a blog I read today. The song is by Caedmon's Call. I have actually never heard the song, but I love the group, so I bet the song is pretty good. The words really spoke to me today, especially since this has been a really tiring one. Campbell isn't feeling well, teething I think, and Luke has been, well, Luke. So anyway, I have always known, since I have been a mom, that this is exactly where I am supposed to be. I love that God chose me to be the mom of my kids, and I would never dream of being anywhere else. Thank you, Stephen, for working so hard to let me stay at home with our babies. You have made my dreams come true and I love you.

this house is a good mess
it’s the proof of life
no way would I trade jobs
but it don’t pay overtime
I’ll get to the laundry
I don’t know when
I’m saying a prayer tonight
cause tomorrow it starts again
could it be that everything is sacred?
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes
the children are sleeping
but they’re running through my mind
the sun makes them happy
and the music makes them unwind
my cup runneth over
and I worry about the stain
teach me to run to You
like they run to me for every little thing
when I forget to drink from you
I can feel the banks harden
Lord, make me like a stream
to feed the garden
wake up, little sleeper
the Lord, God Almighty
made your Mama keeper
so rise and shine
rise and shine cause
everything is sacred
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

Hey Girl,

I am thinking about you today and getting caught up on my emails. It is not good to go outside this week as we are surrounded by fires on all sides except the ocean. The air is horrible to breathe and there is ash everywhere, even between my toes. I hope you have been doing what you need to do and that you know how much God loves you and your family. I am praying for you.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

oh, elizabeth. i could hardly get to the end of the song because of the tears! i needed this badly.

we have had a tiring few weeks. i've been so sick and feel so ill-equipped to care for my baby who has been so sick. not to mention the un-done housework and the poor husband who has been so neglected and yet still so servant-hearted towards me.

we are so blessed just to be moms and i needed this reminder that no matter how overwhelmed i am, i have a Savior who loves and cares for me and because of that, every moment of my life is, indeed, sacred.

i'll be praying for you today!
