Cute Lil’ Makenna

Makenna has been quite the ham lately and is reveling in her increased mobility.  Not only is she a speed demon crawling, but she also loves walking all over the place, and absolutely adores climbing!  Here’s the cutest picture of her yet (some of you have probably already seen it on Facebook).  She is also starting to talk a lot more.  Her favorite words: Daddy, Uh-ho, Look, Doggie, and Zoe.  She’ll say “mama” when prompted but it’s not one of her favorites! 

And finally the video of her playing that just wouldn’t load.  It’s shorter and lower quality than we’d like but the regular video clip wouldn’t upload.   Not exactly sure what she’s “making” so we just took a guess…

 

Need You Now

So I’ve been trying to post a Makenna video and have had no luck so I decided to head in another direction. 

I’ve heard this song on the radio lately and love it.  Not only do I love the artist’s voice, but the words are beautiful.  Beautiful because they are so transparent and honest.  I don’t know about you but my heart has definitely cried out these words during hard times, especially in the past few years. 

The journey isn’t always easy, but we continue on, sometimes with just the next breath or next step.  Life can be hard.  God is faithful, even if He doesn’t always answer our prayers how we’d like.  And His heart is good.


Need You Now by Plumb (video/pictures put together by fionalovesshrek on youtube)

Well, everybody’s got a story to tell
And everybody’s got a wound to be healed
I want to believe there’s beauty here
Oh I get so tired of holding on
I can’t let go, I can’t move on
I want to believe there’s meaning here

Chorus:
How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you,
God, I need you now.

Standing on a road I didn’t plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I’m trying to hear that still small voice
I’m trying to hear above the noise

Chorus
How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

Oh I walk, Oh I walk through the shadows
And I, I am so afraid
Please stay, please stay right beside me
With every single step I take

How many times have you heard me cry out?
And how many times have you given me strength?

Chorus
How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you,
God, I need you now.

I need you now
I need you now
