Happy Birthday!!!

Happy 1st my blog!!! One year ago today I officially joined the blogosphere and have enjoyed it so much! I'm kind of stealing this idea from the Wissmanns, but if you wouldn't mind leaving me a comment telling me who you are and how you found my blog, I would love to hear from you! Thank you! I think I'll go blow out my candles now...

Who is Leading?

"O Lord , I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps" (Jer. 10:23).

"Lead me in a plain path" (Ps. 27:14).

Many people want to direct God, instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him; to show Him a way, instead of passively following where He leads.

--Madame Guyon

I said: "Let me walk in the field";
God said: 'Nay, walk in the town";
I said: "There are no flowers there";
He said: "No flowers, but a crown."

I said: "But the sky is black,
There is nothing but noise and din";
But He wept as He sent me back,
"There is more," He said, "there is sin

I said: "But the air is thick,
And fogs are veiling the sun";
He answered: "Yet souls are sick,
And souls in the dark undone."

I said: "I shall miss the light,
And friends will miss me, they say";
He answered me, "Choose tonight,
If I am to miss you, or they."

I pleaded for time to be given;
He said: "Is it hard to decide?
It will not seem hard in Heaven
To have, followed the steps of your Guide."

I cast one look at the fields,
Then set my face to the town;
He said: "My child, do you yield?
Will you leave the flowers for the crown?"

Then into His hand went mine,
And into my heart came He;
And I walk in a light Divine,
The path I had feared to see.

--George MacDonald

Tanner's birthday!

Here are some pictures of Tanner's birthday celebration. Since Tann enjoys making short films, we decided to use that as a springboard and decorate the birthday table in movie memorabilia.

Having fun with the decor!
Just having fun!
