Lord, can I stay here forever?

Five Minute Friday {stay}

Start:

It’s a happy morning! The smell of hazelnut coffee fills the house. Laughter is heard coming for the kitchen while the kids eat their breakfast. Daddy is in his office downstairs and the kids know it and are eager to go tell him “good morning!!” Breakfast is over the kitchen is cleaned and I sit at the table in the dining room watching my little play together! Elias is teaching the twins how to put the letters in a new alphabet puzzle…they just want to force them in like most toddlers do! The morning is filled with “mommy I love you!!” “let’s play together” “it is time for math?!” {he loves math}
I look at them and I am filled with so my joy I almost can’t handle it. These little people are my children!! The Lord gave these little to me! In that very moment my husband walk up the steps…his hair is a mess, he is in his pajamas, and desperately needs another cup of coffee…but…I feel butterflies in my stomach, the kind I felt on our first date, or when we got married, or countless times since we met! I’m so in love with him! My life is full of blessings! I’m a very blessed wife and mommy! I’m filled with love, joy and a lovely sence of peace! I close my eyes tight, eyelashes damp with tears of joy…”Lord, can I stay I this moment forever?!” is my prayer. I know that at some point the arguing and fighting will start, someone will hurt someone else’s feelings, he’ll have to go back down to the office. But right now is this very moment…deep breath…I want to stay here forever.

It’s the beauty of simplicity

I’ll praise You for eternity
and, Lord, I love You
Because You
You first loved me
♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪

You gave Yourself away
just that I could stay
You took my place in death
and rose that I could say
That You are Holy
and You alone deserve my praise

Sharing the Beauty!

♫♪♫♪Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and pow’r.
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.
Come, ye thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.
Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.
See Him prostrate in the garden;
On the ground your Maker lies;
On the bloody tree behold Him;
Sinner, will this not suffice?
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms. ♫♪♫♪
This is such a beautiful song that gives be such
peace and comfort during hard times as well as good time!
Our Lord is such a faithful, wonderful, caring God!
