I've been given an award!
According to the rules, I have to share 10 honest things about myself with you,
and then pass the award on to ten of my favorite bloggers. Here it goes!
1) I love to sing, I write songs, put them to music and record them.
They are based on life, faith & God..
I am not a great performer..I'm shy ( Bashful smile)
but I have used my songs for various things.
They are kind of like journals with melodies.
2) I lost my mum at the age of 19.
She was a wonderful woman,
a lover of God,
and a great friend.
I thank God for his love and support
around the time of her illness and death.
3) I messed up around her ill years.
I struggled to cope.
I felt lost,
I sought comfort in all the wrong places.
I felt ashamed.
4) I found hope, before she died,
I found myself crying out to God one night,
to help me.
I told him he needed to take care of my life,
and I wanted his help.
I got filled with His peace,
and I began to laugh!
( I hadn't laughed for a long time!)
My circumstanses hadn't changed,
but he had changed me.
I had his Joy in my heart.
I turned to his word and read
"For I know the plans I have for you,"
says the lord.
"Plans, not to bring you harm,
but to bring you hope and a good future!"
5) I began to have dreams.
I started to get dreams of heavenly things,
I knew I had spent time with God during these times.
He was filling my heart with Hope.
6) He established a foundation of love in my heart.
I had always said,
that if God took my Mum away,
I would never forgive him.
I was wrong.
He loved on me,
like no other could.
7) Years on, I met my husband.
He was younger than I.
He was smitten, I was not.
He came to know God through our friendship,
after a whille I realized,
I didnt want to lose him!
He was my best friend.
We got married.
8) We went on to have 2 beautiful girls,
who fill our lives with giggles, laughter,
tears, sharing, learning, teaching,
loving, giving, taking,
and all the other aspects of
We would not change it for the world.
9) Its only the beginning!
I want my life to be orchestrated by my Maker.
Like musical notes arranged in order to create a
I want my steps in this life to be ordered and arranged by him.
To point people to his beauty,
10) I hadn't planned this post
to be this way!
I had pictures of country cottages
and shabby chic items waiting,
but someone else had plans for this space.
Am I allowed an 11th? I had tears writing this... :0)
Now I pass on the award to:
