She's a TEENAGER!!

Wow! How time flies! It seems like yesterday when little Morgan was born! She made her entrance into this world at 8:45 pm weighing 8 lbs. 13 oz. and was 22 inches long. Today she is 6'1" and a beautiful young lady. Where did the days go? I'm so proud of Morgan. She is hilarious, caring, giving, hilarious, outgoing, friendly....did I mention hilarious? She does keep us laughing and is definitely a bright spot in our lives. We love you Morgan and hope you've had a wonderful 13th birthday!!

*Chad made sure he told me tonight that Morgan will be driving in 2 years. Oh my!!! :-)

My desire...Lord Reign in Me!

You thought of us before the world began to breathe

You knew our names before we came to be

You saw the very day we'd fall away from you

And how desperately we need to be redeemed

Lord Jesus come lead us

We're desperate for your touch

Oh Great and Mighty One with one desire we come

That you would reign that you would reign in us

We're offering up our lives a living sacrifice

That you would reign that you would reign in us

Spirit of the Living God fall fresh again

Come search our hearts and purify our lives

We need your perfect love We need your discipline

We're lost unless you guide us with your light

We cry out For your love to refine us cry out

For your love to define us cry out

For your mercy to keep us blameless until you return

So reign please reign in us

Come purify our hearts we need your touch

Come cleanse us like a flood and send us out

So the world may know you reign you reign in us

7 Things...

My sister, Amy, tagged me to tell 7 random things about myself that people may not know. I've sat and thought about it for a while and I've decided that I'm pretty much an open book BUT I'm going to try this. So...

#1~ Some of you do know this but it's the first thing I thought of. I stand on my head everyday! I have an inversion table that I get on and I invert for about 10 to 15 minutes each day. I had a bulging disc in my back a few months ago and found that the table is the best thing for me. I'm sure I look kind of strange on my head though! :-)

#2~ I HAVE to make my bed every morning right when I get up. If Chad is still in the bed I make him up in it. :-) Not really but I do make my side up and then he'll usually make his when he gets up. IF for some reason I can't make my bed first thing, I still HAVE to make it before I go to bed....even if that means making it up and immediately unmaking it!

#3~ I turn the dryer back on 15 times if I have to to fluff clothes. I HATE to iron so I always make sure I take the clothes out while they're VERY hot and I hang them immediately.

#4~ My favorite musical is "The Music Man". I could watch it over, and over, and over! My good friend Jennifer gave me the DVD for Christmas a few years ago. It was one of the best gifts she could have ever chosen for me. I love the songs "Seventy-six Trombones", "Gary, Indiana", and "Till There Was You". The whole musical just makes me happy!

#5~ I am very picky about the dishes that I eat on and drink out of. I WILL NOT drink out of a coffee mug at work. I have to have a styrofoam cup. I really don't like to use silverware anywhere but my home and the homes of family and some friends. I'm sure they are probably clean but I'm just weird about that. At restaurants I've been known to ask for a "to go" cup right off the bat.

#6~ It was always my dream to be on "The Price is Right". I really don't care anymore because Bob Barker is gone. I think I REALLY thought my dream would come true before he retired. Oh well. Check that one off the list!

#7~ I absolutely love slushy apple juice and slushy orange juice! The first time I had both was when I was in the hospital after delivering Morgan. I couldn't get enough of either of them. I sometimes put both juices in the freezer long enough to get them slushy.

OK....that's the best I've got! Now I tag
Angi and Alyssa.
