More Than Enough

Well, I finally made it to the blog world. I have held off as long as possible, but I just gave in. God has put it on my heart for some time to do this, so I hope it will glorify him. Of course it will be filled with stories and pics of our precious children, but I hope it will be an encouragement to those who read it.

If you know me well, you will know that if I do something, I want it to stand out and be different. Of course my blog was no exception. I have pondered the name for some time, and I finally decided on More than Enough. I wanted something that would stand for how I feel about my life and all I have been given. It is a worship song that I had never heard until I was asked to sing it. The words are so simple, yet the meaning is more than powerful.

I have been in a funk, pretty much all week. Just overwhelmed! Melinda is graduating Friday, she is getting married NEXT WEEK, we are planning for our mission trip to Costa Rica in June, trying to sell 2 dive scooters to raise money for our trip, attempting to stay on a budget in these tight financial times, maintaining our busy social life, and the list goes on and on. My life gets so busy sometimes, that I get too caught up in the things that don't matter. I finally prayed about it and here is the peace that passes all understanding,,,,

The many friendships in my life, that mean so much to me....are More Than Enough to love and support me.
The great (most days) job that I have in this terrible More Than Enough to meet our needs.
My most wonderful family that I am so close More Than Enough to count on anytime I need them.
My more than AMAZING husband, whom I love unconditionally, who is a changed man following God's desires for his way More Than Enough to love me for who I am.
My most PRECIOUS miracles, Cade and SaraGrace, who were never to be mine, but God was more powerful than any doctor or treatment....are More Than Enough for me to love and cherish every second I have with them. They make me a better Momma.
And the GREATEST gift of all, my More Than Enough to see me through this earthly life, and to escort me to see my Savior when I get to Heaven.

My life is filled with far more blessings than I deserve. For that, I am most grateful.
