My Life is Beautiful



I have a friend who loves me
so much that He died in
my place as the ugly
punishment of my sin.

my life is beautiful

My friend, Jesus, provides
me with grace and mercy
each and every day so I
can live my life to the
fullest, to His honor.

My Husband loves me
beyond what my heart
can fathom.  I am spoiled
with his grace every day
as well.  I can't imagine
life without him.

my life is beautiful

I've been blessed with three
amazing girls, who teach me,
who love me  beyond reason,
and give me an abounding
joy no mother could ever
possibly dream of having.

my life is beautiful

My home is my refuge,
peeling paint, constant repairs
and all.  Comfort and love are
found here, built here.

my life is beautiful

My family is close knit, fun
and strong.  We bare the scars
from many of life's battles; but
always together.

Blogging and twitter have
created new friendships for me
across the country, the world.
I am challenged, encouraged,
and humored through these
amazing connections each and
every day.

my life is beautiful

God has blessed me, again and
again; stretched me beyond what
I felt was comfortable; grown me
despite my stubbornness;  guided 
me through depression; taught me, 
loved me, humored me, disciplined
me all in the name of His unending
and unimaginable gift of Grace.
