I heard this song, Blessings, sung by Laura Story recently and I heard it at the most perfect time.

We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if the thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe


When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know the pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home


What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise

Holy Fried Yumminess!

Jaime and I are going to make these special little treats very soon. Who could resist hot tasty breaded and fried artichoke hearts?

Light my Fire

Yesterday was my 33rd birthday.  It was a beautiful day :)  I was able to take a moment to read the first couple lines of this post by Centsational Girl.  Today I was able to finish reading it.  Oh boy, is it too strong to say that I fell in love with what she has to say?!  I've been reading Rediscovering Catholicism by Matthew Kelly and he's speaking to me too.  If you're feeling a void, if you know that there's more out there, but just not succeeding, if you are stuck in the mundane, if you're overwhelmed, if you're under-whelmed read the post and the book.  Pure inspiration~and a little fire under the butt!  It's way past time to step up and step out!  Here's to an authentic risk-taking year :)  Take the challenge, I dare you! :)
