Wonder filled me when I held Addison! When I saw that smile...while I watched her sleep...while I held her close to me and let her warmth surround us both, I was in wonder....wonder of what this world held for her. I wondered what her personality would be. I wondered if she could possibly know how much she is loved. I wondered if she will know what a blessing she is to all of us. I wondered how God could give us the ability to love someone so much. Congratulations Brad and Ang! We love you all. And thank you God for the blessings and wonder you provide.

This is what I am feeling!
I am so excited to visit with my parents this weekend and thank them for being such wonderful parents. I am excited about our relationship and I am grateful for their LOVE!
It is only Tuesday and I am already this excited. It is the kind of feeling that makes me wanna dance!

Why? First, it was in my own community! It really opened my eyes to the need that is right next door. Secondly, I worked side by side with strangers, but also with friends. Volunteering has always been a passion of mine...especially Habitat. There is something amazing that happens when people COME TOGETHER for a cause.
I don't know much about building houses, but just by being able to hammer a nail, to carry items, and in this case...to read directions (putting up a hospitality tent), I was able to HELP construct a house for a very deserving family.
My favorite part of a Habitat build is the framing section. The house begins to take shape and seeing people work together to lift a wall is just inspiring. Maybe Habitat isn't something you are interested in, but there are different areas of the community both on a local and global level that could use the skills God gave you.
Reach out! Speak up! Do Something!
