Project 365 - Week 8

Project 365 button designed by

So, we are towards the end of February now ... that is crazy. My baby will turn 6 this coming week. Time is moving way too fast. Somebody stop the clock for me, will ya?

Yeah, that's what I thought ... Boo.

At least I have some of the hi lights on film though ... like these:

Feb. 14 - My Funny Valentines - Hubby took his (little) girls on a date for the big day. HE wants to be the one that teaches them how they are supposed to be treated on a date. And I am happy that they are learning from the very best.
And this little fella was MY date for the day. His mama and daddy had a date of their own and while his big sis, Miss Belle, hung out with the grandparents, I got to love on my sweet Judah Man! (thanks Aron & Erica for sharing!!)

Feb. 15 - Like Her Sis - She wants to be big sooooo bad!

Feb. 16 - Ice, Ice Baby - On a play date at a friend's house, I thought it was SO cool how the ice melting form the sunny roof froze to the bush in the shade causing icicles.

Feb. 17 - Here Comes The ... - Yeah, that, my friends, is the sun. Bring it on!

Feb. 18 - When running warm water in which to thaw your frozen coffee creamer, one would be wise to NOT fall asleep and leave the water running. Thankfully, I "woke up" just in time!

Feb. 19 - Story Tellers - I could not pick just one pic from the worship concert at our church, so I made a collage. It.Was.AWESOME!

Feb. 20 - SONIC! - Hubby and I had a date scheduled. Hattie was not feeling quite herself and Soph had a nasty nose. (Soph has a nasty nose any time the weather changes!) So, Hubbs took us all on a family date night to Sonic. Can you guess which cup is mine. Yeah ... I like me some cherry limeaid.

Thank you, Sara, for hosting. This is a blast every week!

So, how was YOUR week?

I Am Listening ...

I mentioned this song in my project 365 this last week - how God had used it to pull me out of a little funk I was in. I turned on my Pandora Radio and there it was, lifting my focus off me and my dirty house and loud kids and lack of sleep, and turning my eyes - and heart - toward Him in praise.

Then he used it AGAIN on Sunday ... and Monday ... and Tuesday.

On Wednesday morning I was telling my man about it and mentioned that I was gonna need to buy the song off of iTunes because God was CLEARLY trying to tell me something.

And then I got into my car Wed. morning to go to the doctor and there it was ... on a CD ... that I already owned! Now, I know the CD is mine but I have NO idea how it got in my car - or perhaps I do.

Thank You Abba - You are truly after my heart ... and I am listening.

(I found this version on YouTube and the drama spoke to me. Let us ALL chase after Him like this!!!)

Here are the lyrics, in case you are being called to study them as well:

Trees of life are blooming
Your word plants the seed
And we see it growing
Your kindness leading to repentance
We see traces of deliverance
Lord, thank You for mercy

Oh, can you hear it?
It's the song of the redeemed
The pursuit of passion for the One who set us free
Oh can you hear it?
We're crying out for more
And listen to our song
It's turning into a holy roar
A holy roar

Rivers of renewal
Spirit whisper a revival
And send us rushing
Lord send us rushing..
Open hearts with hopes of unity
We're servants to love in lost humanity
Lord send us reaching


And we come rejoicing and singing and crying out to You Lord
Can You hear the holy roar
As we respond to Who You are and all that You have done
Lord with our lives, with all that we are
We return to You, Oh God
You are holy God
We lay down our lives, our songs, these tears, Lord
Can You hear the holy roar? These cries, these prayers...
Can You hear the holy roar? Still hear the holy roar
