Trillian Elizabeth

My baby sweetheart is here. She did not like being evicted but non the less, she is here.
It amazes me that less than two weeks ago she was still in my belly. Such a wonder.

Baby names

33 weeks and counting. Hard to believe this little girl is almost here. I hope her name fits her sweet little face. We really don't have another name for her. I think I will tell people it is a toss up between Magenta and Chartreuse. Dan says it is between Fred and Steve. Or something equally boyish. 6 weeks to go.

Return to Creativity

I saw this online. I thought it was pretty cute. Then I thought, "I can do that".
So i found some stuff and went to the store and found more stuff. This is what I came up with.
I am pretty jazzed about the outcome.

Dancing under the Gallows

I just saw a trailer for a documentary called, Dancing under the Gallows. The oldest living holocaust survivor is 107 this month. Alice Herz-Sommer was 39 when she was arrested. I was amazed at her love of life. She lives for music and has no hate for what was done to her. She says, "every day, life is beautiful." What an inspiration. The Nazis allowed the Jews in this camp to perform music and plays and paint because they were using it as propaganda. It seemed like they never noticed that it gave the prisoners an escape in their minds and they found hope in this. Many of them survived.

God is more powerful than anything man can do. Even in the darkest times God is there to hold us. Man may destroy the body but they cannot touch what is God's, the soul.

"Only when we are so old are we aware of the beauty of life." I hope that I can be aware of it now.

Thank you Alice.

I wonder how I can have a whole week go by with nothing to show for it. Maybe one or two actual events but the rest is just gone. I try to hold onto this time with Belle. She won't be little for much longer. Yet, day after day I am tired for no reason. We stay home and veg. All day! I need a stop watch for my life. Or a pause button. That would be helpful. Time for a nap.

Reliant K

I am trying twice as hard to satisfy myself on my own.
I'm still waiting for things to change.

I lay my life before you and I'm not getting up.
Father, how I adore you.
Those words are not enough.

Father, know I love you and know that I am wrong.
But please take my life and make me your son.
I lay my life before you and I'm not getting up.
Father, how I adore you.
Those words are not enough.

Am I at the point of no improvement?
What of the death I still dwell in
I try to excel but I feel no movement.
Can I be free of this unreleasable sin?
Never underestimate my Jesus,
You telling me that there is no hope
I am telling you you're are wrong.
Never underestimate my Jesus
When the world around you crumbles
He will be strong, he will be strong.

Listening to these two songs today. I slightly abridged the first one.
They have some great lines. All that I have, I lay before. With my pride on the floor, cuz' to you less is more.
May this be my prayer today.
