A few weeks ago I told you about the 'chaos' that has been my life. While life has calmed down (for the most part), the song that I wrote about is just as important in my life today as it was a month ago.
Back then, I wanted to share the song with you, but was only able to share the lyrics. Thankfully, today Casey Darnell (the artist) uploaded it to YouTube.
There's more to me than just my humor & insight. Want to learn more about me? Justclick hereto read my story.
Mom 2 Chel N Justin
I used to define myself as a working mom who believed in the benefits of daycare, preschool & public school; breast-feeding is great, but not the only way to feed your child. Born & raised in northern NJ transplanted to Georgia. I still believe those things, but now I simply choose to define myself as a child of the Most High God. A work in progress and have no problem sharing my journey. Recovering food addict & compulsive over eater. Afflicted with clinical depression yet trusting God to show me the way.
My beloved hubby, C. He has a heart for God. Some have even described him as "Sold Out for God" - and that's not a bad thing. He's not ashamed to worship openly. He captured my heart when we were just 15.
Our teen daughter, C. She has a heart of gold and wants to be friends with everyone. She's sensitive & sweet and beautiful inside & out. Loves to sing. She follows in family footsteps with her love of music. Now starting a new adventure - COLLEGE!
Our teen son, J (formerly known as Slugger). He's grown into a young man right before our very eyes. Once crazy about Legos, he now plays trumpet in his high school marching band. He's got a dry sense of humor and a BIG heart. He has a heart for God & a faith of his own. He volunteers with 2nd graders to help them find a faith of their own.
First & foremost, I am a child of the MOST HIGH God!
After giving my heart away to the 'world', I decided to take it back & give it to the One who it truly belongs to – God. While everyone else may see me as 'damaged', God sees me as someone made new. He took my shattered heart & put it back together piece-by-piece.
From there I am a devoted wife, working mom, daughter, sister, friend, church volunteer, victim advocate, student & rape survivor.
I've been through a lot in my years, but God has seen me through it all.
