It’s Still Raining

This song came to me today and I thought I would share it. It’s a great reminder to always praise God and look to Him no matter what we are facing on our day to day walk with God. I personally needed to hear this song today and am glad it popped up on my playlist. I’ll blog more later after my appointment but until then enjoy reading and taking to heart the powerful words of this song.

Praise You in This Storm
words by Mark Hall/music by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it’s still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
“I’m with you”
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus:
And I’ll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I’ve cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can’t find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

Chorus

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Chorus

A Flash back!

I am really looking forward to Fun In The Park this Saturday! This picture was taken of me last year after we had returned home from the event. ūüôā I got pretty dolphins spray painted on my face.

What is Fun in The Park? Fun in the Park is a ‚Äúcoming together‚ÄĚ as a community‚ÄĒa light-hearted, competition-free, all-kids-are-equal kind of gathering. Creative planning is supported by over 160 organizations, and the help of more than 600 volunteers.

The festival is a free gift to the community because of generous sponsors who underwrite the budget and gracious volunteers who serve.

Pretty cool huh?

I keep thinking today is Friday… don’t you hate the weeks when you are thrown off by a day or two? Besides that, I got a call back from Pediatrician on Melody’s blood work and her thyroid levels are the same. The same is better than worse I guess. Next week is the specialist visit..he might adjust her drug intake but we’ll see.

Let’s Get Fit!

My husband and I purchased WiiFit last week and it was an almost welcome to reality for me. I know I only had a baby two months ago and the weight is pretty much gone from that but I was planning on getting back in shape and have slightly been putting it aside…SHAME on ME! Well, according to the Wiifit my weight is where it should be but my balance is off a whole lot and I am weak! I could’ve told you about the weak thing! So, what I need to work on is getting tone. How much have I played the Wiifit since I found out that about myself? Not a whole lot so when I heard from Penny today, it was a kick in the face or more like the pants and I thank her for asking for a review on her sites!

So, let me tell you about Penny! Penny is a pretty awesome woman/mom and you find that out easily by checking out her personal blog or even her blog about her fitness journey! She currently has her own fitness studio for women of all ages and I am only slightly annoyed that her studio is in Texas. So lucky for you Texans and not luck for me in Oregon. I did manage to find something useful for myself off her studio site “My Physique INC”. What did I find? I found this great recipe for Salmon! I love fish and it’s also a reminder that I should probably cut my personal fried chicken recipe ( I’m from Georgia) out of the diet for awhile… more or less for my husbands sake as he needs to lose about seventy pounds. Ouch!

I hope I have encouraged you enough to swing by Penny’s sites as I know I really enjoyed them all even though I was slightly convicted but it’s all for the better!
