hidden in my heart

I've been enjoying this beautiful lullaby CD.

I've learned that mommies need lullabies just as much as our babies do.

And lullabies aren't just for bedtime...

Sometimes my heart needs a good calming at the kitchen sink,

or in the schoolroom,

or beside the bathtub as I'm trying in vain to bathe squirmy children.

If I could, I'd purchase a copy for each of my friends!


easter blessings

Happy Easter!
Our family enjoyed a blessed day.
Amid the excitement of tearing open Easter baskets
and searching for eggs in the backyard,
I'm going to treasure this sweet prayer offered at bedtime by my little one in pink jammies, hands folded...

"Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross and forgiving me"

I love that she didn't miss Him today among all of the eggs and the candy.
It makes me smile.

"Christ is risen
and my soul knows
sweet salvation!"
