5k Run For Little Flowers:

My friend Katie sponsored a run for the China's Little Flower Project.  
This great virtual run was to help raise money for orphans in China. 

Katie worked tirelessly to help these children in need. 
Thank you Katie for your love for Christ and orphans!  
Your great example is inspiring.

I am the lady in the middle with the ipod on. 
I barely beat the guy next to me with the sling and the other guy with the stroller!

THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+

Everything you do!

For those who have been following my blog have heard of our struggles this year, especially when our baby Steven Thomas died this summer.

I have always been one of those annoying people who wakes up happy every morning and kinda skips through the day till afternoon when I crash and burn...but still a pretty happy, optimistic person. For the past three months I have been trying to shake off this sadness,  I do feel much better, but not my obnoxious self.

I got to go on a weekend silent retreat that really reminded me of the importance of smiling and meeting God where you are...which for me is in my home! I love being a stay at home mom and I constantly battle on being a better homemaker...you know the cooking and the cleaning part...then there is the homeschooling stuff. I will continue to find solace with my Lord and embrace my amazing husband and children loving my vocation as a wife and mother.

God has really used music to minister to my soul and bring a smile to my heart. This morning I was working out to this song over...and over...again!!! I hope it reminds you that everything you do to do it for the Glory of God!!!

"Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father." Colossians 3:17



You're picking up toys on the living room floor
for the 15th time today
Matching up socks and sweeping up lost
Cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip and color on your lips
and head out the door
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
We'll let me remind you it all matters just as long as you

Do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do

OOoh ooooh oooooh

Maybe you're that guy with the suit and tie
Maybe your shirt says your name
You may be hooking up mergers, cooking up burgers
But at the end of the day

Little stuff big stuff in between stuff
God sees it all the same
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
We'll let me remind you it all matters just as long as you do

Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you
To do every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace with every move that you make
And every little thing that you do

Well maybe you're sitting in math class
Maybe anekatips on a mission in the Congo
Maybe you're working at the office
Singing along with the radio
Maybe you're dining at a five star
Or feeding orphans in Myanmar
Anywhere and everywhere you are
Whatever you do it all matters
So do what you do and don't ever forget
to do

Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace as you do
Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace with every move that you make
And every little thing that you do

Ooh oooooh
Every little thing you do

THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+
