I'm tellin' ya people, this kid has spunk! I love this little man so very much and can't believe it's been 5 years since I was in the hospital having him. He really makes my life worth living...such a sweet and gentle heart, with a HUGE imagination and so very playful! He loves to tease others (in a funny way) and listens to everything around him (and later repeats everything he hears). He's funny and sassy, with a smile that melts me everytime. Happy Birthday, sweet boy!

What is your favorite word? honey
What is your least favorite word? stupid (I'm constantly telling the kids at school not to say that word because " I really don't like that word!")
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? reading other blogs, and constructing my own posts for my blog...seeing inside other people's lives and how my life is alike or different
What turns you off? stinky smells and people who are rude
What sound or noise do you love? my son's belly laugh - that laugh when you know he is geniunely happy
What sound or noise do you hate? a fork scraping somebody's teeth when they are eating
What is your favorite thing to say when you get mad? "are you serious???"
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? photographer
What profession would you not like to do? nurse...I would die if someone puked on me or I saw blood!
If Heaven exists (I believe that it does), what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "My Child! I've been waiting for you!"
Ok, that was fun - now on to a VERY serious matter...Max is going on his very first fieldtrip tomorrow. On a bus. To an alpacha farm. My little man. I'm in shock! I'll update you on how that goes:)
but I continuly make plans for my own life. Trusting in those plans, organizing my life around those plans, getting my hopes up and leaving no room for failure...
and I leave God out of the equation.
My Creator, my Savior...how can I even begin to make my own plans?
Why would I try to make plans for my life when He has a GREATER plan than I could ever (in a million years) come up with on my own.
You would have thought I would have caught on the first couple of times...
...but here I am. Disappointed and heartbroken. Why?
Because MY PLAN is not HIS PLAN. And until those two things line up, I will continue to be disappointed. Pray for me and my family - and for my total and complete surrender to God's plan.
