DATE NIGHT WITH MY LOVE
Jeremy and I are going out to eat tonight for a special date!! Just the two of us!! I can't wait....most all of our pics are of our (precious) children, so we thought one of us might be nice. Not only is our date night picture taken in our BATHROOM, but you can't even appreciate my super cute cowboy boots because our 18mon old is trying to hold daddy's hand because does not want us to leave....

And by the way.....all of those silly hashtags.....I love ALL OF THAT!!
I love the joy and craziness of a house full of little voices, especially voices of those special little blessings that I get to be mama to, EVERY DAY!
To hear one of them call out my name, "Mom", even if they are calling it loudly and incessantly as I am trying to finish a task...makes my heart flutter, because the name "Mother" is an honor and a privilege that I have been gifted with from my Father Above.
Jesus, help me to bring dignity to the name of "Mother" and help me to answer each calling from my children, peacefully with a loving smile on my face, because I do love them more than I can describe and I WANT to be the one who they call on when they are joyful, sad, scared, or frustrated. I want to be the one that they call to show me how they can jump off of the diving board for the 10TH time!
It is totally AWESOME that Me seeing that most important jump off of the diving board makes it more real and exciting for them. Who wouldn't want to be THAT important! I am undeserving but oh so grateful!
Thank you Jesus for choosing me to be a mommy....to be THEIR mommy
I love You dear Father

When I was sick last year.....my friend Celeste brought this Willow Angel to me in the hospital. This angel is called "Courage" and when Celeste surprised me with her, I was so greatly touched. I didn't know her name at first, but instantly when I saw her.....Jesus tenderly wrote on my heart, "Surrender", Kerry.....Surrender it ALL to Me now!! With her arms stretched out, raised to the sky, this tiny figure is triumphantly surrendering everything she has to give!
I surrendered myself to our Lord again, with her inspiration...it is a decision that I consciously make each day. I will joyfully surrender totally! Nothing I have to offer You, Lord is worth much, but it is everything that our Lord finds valuable and it is all that He asks me for.
All I have is my brokenness because everything "good" in my is already Him! I am enough for Him because He loves me so perfectly and as He lovingly formed me in His mighty Hands, He whispered into my heart that He would offer Himself for me fully and hoped that I would simply offer myself fully back to Him. I love thinking about Jesus Christ looking down at me as I raise my arms up, reaching for Him
All to Jesus
All to Him
I freely give
I will ever
Love and trust Him
In His presence
I surrender all
I surrender all
All to Thee
My blessed Saviour
I surrender all
Surrender all: Michael W Smith
