in awe of the One

I'll stand, with arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the one who gave it all
I'll stand, My soul Lord to you surrendered
All I am is yours
- "Stand" Hillsong

Giving thanks, for...

- church; celebrating together (and worshipful music, a poignant and timely sermon)
- baby in just a diaper, all day
- a new, very cool piece of pink furniture, from a neighbor's yard sale (and a new friend, maybe?)
- summer cleaning
- cold water
- Levi and a piece of watermelon
- 4th of July festivities
- the Point Block Party, an opportunity to serve our community
- that I don't need to ever worry
- good thrift finds (especially a new wooden walking toy for Levi for $3!)
- when it takes 3 times as long to shop because Levi smiles and waves to everyone he sees and we have to stop and chat to his new friends
- Brian and Jenny's birthday party, especially our after party walk around the neighborhood
- a Great Gatsby birthday party, a chance to dress up and a date with my honey (and for Aunt Katie and Uncle Matt for babysitting!)...


  1. You two wear the Gatsby theme well. Classy! Madeline is having a jungle-themed dance party for her birthday, and a retro-outer-space theme for the annual Scrap-a-go-go. I'm going to suggest the Gatsby for her next gig. She'd look great as a flapper, doing the lindy.

  2. Thanks, Janet! It was reaaaly fun and a great theme for a party. Madeline would love it, I think!

  3. You guys look good!!!
