As Long As You Are Glorified

Shall I take from Your hand Your blessings
Yet not welcome any pain.
Shall I thank You for days of sunshine
Yet grumble in days of rain.
Shall I love You in times of plenty
Then leave you in days of drought.
Shall I trust when I reap a harvest
But when winter winds blow, then doubt.

Oh let Your will be done in me
In Your love I will abide.
Oh I long for nothing else as long
As You are glorified.

Are You good only when I prosper
And true only when I'm filled?
Are You King only when I'm carefree
And God only when I'm well?
You are good when I'm poor and needy.
You are true when I'm parched and dry.
You still reign in the deepest valley.
You're still God in the darkest night.

Oh let Your will be done in me
In Your love I will abide.
Oh I long for nothing else as long
As You are glorified.

So quiet my restless heart.
Quiet my restless heart.
Quiet my restless heart in You.

Oh let Your will be done in me
In Your love I will abide.
Oh I long for nothing else as long
As You are glorified.

Words by Mark Altrogge

The words to the song are on my mind a lot. I pray that this is how my life is known. No matter what happens, good or bad, I want God to be glorified in my life. Just like Paul talked about in Philippians. Wow! God, do a work in me!!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Jadyn!

Jadyn, you sure do make life interesting. I remember the day I found out I was pregnant with you. We had prayed for such a long time for a baby and God had you planned at just the right time for our family. You're so full of life and personality. I can't imagine what our family would be without you! As much as we love you, remember that God loves you so much more than that! Happy 2nd Birthday!

Jadyn's 2nd Birthday Party

I can't believe my baby girl will be turning 2. Since Lyd and Marcus were here, we had Jadyn's birthday party a week early! It was great to all be together. Even Jonny surprised us and came in from NYC. Jadyn got lots of fun toys and we had some yummy food.
Jadyn, I hope you know how loved you are!

The birthday girl!

Showing off the dinnerware!

The princess of the party!

A Cinderella doll from Aunt Leah and Uncle Stevie.

SHOES!!!!! This girl loves shoes!

Zach was enjoying some of Jadyn's gifts, too!

A trunk full of dress clothes from Nanny and Papa!

Gabe enjoyed the party.

And sweet Bria slept through the party!

Aunt Lydia helped Jadyn blow out her candles.

Good times with Lydia and Marcus!

Lydia and Marcus were able to come up for a week and visit. They brought 3 sisters Gloria, Anna, and Sarah up with them too. We had a great time with all of them. I'm so thankful for my sister and the times we get to spend together. Now, to plan a trip to Miami since I miss them all so much!

Fun at the park. Gloria and Jadyn on the slide.

Mj and Lydia on the Chocolate World Tour Ride.

Jadyn enjoyed the kisses!

No visit to Pennsylvania is complete til you get to Chocolate World!

Timmy's great idea - All you can eat at the Barnstormers game!!!

We went to see Joseph at Sight & Sound!

Sarah and Gabe

Can you tell they all had fun?!

Is there More Fun than Jumping on a Trampoline?

I don't think so! The kids love the trampoline especially with their aunts and uncles! Gabe will be on there soon enough, I'm sure!
