january 28th is papa tunney's birthday so today i am thankful for the 28 years i knew him...full of life, full of love for his God and his family and friends, and full of wit and humor, grandpa's is a life to celebrate, so it is hard not to continue doing so. i am grateful for the wonderful memories i have of such a remarkable man.
today lil miss was especially tender towards her sister. we looked down while strolling at the mall and saw that she had reached into sweet pea's car seat to grab hold of her hand and the two were contentedly sitting there hand in hand. my heart also gladdened to peek in on the girls while making dinner and to see lil miss "reading" the Bible to her "lidle whun". i also watched her take a blanket and cover sweet pea's little frame once she fell asleep. awwww...my heart melts. i know they won't always be so sweet to one another, so i want to bottle up these moments!

before she was arrived i was praying for her heart...over and over i'd pray that the Lord would give her an exceptionally giving and others-centered heart, a beautiful heart for Him. it took a few days for it all to come together for me, but in the hospital, i remembered my prayer for her heart and as i looked into her precious face and saw her heart-shaped birthmark, this verse popped into my mind:
1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV) ~ The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.
i look at her mark now and wonder at how the Lord will use with this little one. i continue to pray that He would give her a beautiful heart.

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.
Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace,
One in Himself I cannot die.
My soul is purchased by His blood,
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ my Savior and my God!
and so i am thankful, too, that God has infused so many gifted artists throughout the centuries with the ability to pen and compose music and lyrics that over and over again bring me to my knees.
