I Still Believe

As I was going about my morning "I Still Believe" by Jeremy Camp came on. This song speaks my heart's cry this morning.

Thank you Lord for giving me this song today, when you knew I needed it most.

I Still Believe

Scattered words and empty thoughts
seem to pour from my heart
I've never felt so torn before
seems I don't know where to start
but it's now that I feel Your grace falls like rain
from every fingertip, washing away my pain

I still believe in Your faithfulness
I still believe in Your truth
I still believe in Your holy word
even when I don't see, I still believe

Though the questions still fog up my mind
with promises I still seem to bear
even when answers slowly unwind
it's my heart I see You prepare
but its now that I feel Your grace fall like rain
from every finger tip, washing away my pain

The only place I can go is into your arms
where I throw to you my feeble prayers
in brokeness I can see that this was your will for me
Help me to know You are near

Odd Ponderings

When Franklin puts on his soccer shirt, how does he get it over his shell?

Why do Little Bear and Boots frolic around naked all day,
yet put on pajamas at night?

Bedtime Prayer


Jesus Food, (They always start this way. It is a combination of Dear Jesus and Thank you for this food)

Thank you for my fun day I had tonight. Please help me to be good. And please help me to remember that t-h-e is a sight word. Jesus Food, Amen.

On Whale Watching...

DaddyZabba: Would you like to go whale-watching tomorrow?
Daddy, it's not up to us, it's up to the whales if they want to come up and get watched or not.

Have a Happy Day


This Week (long & boring)

This week has been hectic. LittleZabba has been sick all week. It started with a low grade fever, which I associated with teething. As the week went on the fever got higher and she got more and more fussy. She is not normally fussy so I was compassionate (at first). On Tuesday night she woke with with a fever of 101 and the shakes. I was pretty sure that this wasn't teething anymore. After 2 more wakings in the night (which is not normal for her) I decided it was time to see the doctor. After 1 hour at the doctor, ear check, throat check, lung check, urine check, it was concluded that she either has some kind of virus that he cannot see or she is teething. So basically comfort measures until it goes away. In one sense that is good that there isn't really anything that wrong with her, but a part of me wanted there to be something wrong so I could give her medicine to make it go away faster. I was getting very weary of the crying and whining and having to hold her all day. Thursday morning she woke up with a fever of 102.3. She wasn't getting better!! arg. Another day of whining and fussing and holding. Friday morning she woke up with no fever, but instead she was covered with a yucky looking rash. I thought it was roseola, which is common after fevers of 102. After her afternoon nap the rash was even worse all over her neck, face, arms, legs, was everywhere. It looked really bad. I feared chicken pox. Lucky for me my neighbor is a pediatrician. I took LittleZabba up the street and it is just roseola. whew. So, this morning she is still somewhat fussy, but she ate a good breakfast and the rash has mostly gone away.

That is a very long and boring explanation of why I have been absent in the blogging world this week. Hopefully next week will be better.

Do bikes have feelings too?

DaddyZabba: I might need you to watch my bike so it doesn't get lonely.
BigZabba: Daddy, bikes don't have faces so they can't turn them sad.

San Diego

The worship leader at our church has a band, The Echo Division. We enjoy listening to his CD while in the car. BigZabba's favorite song on the CD is San Diego . On occasion, out of the blue, I will hear her say to LittleZabba,

"Hey, would you like to go to San Diego?"



It's a unicorn.

"What is pretty, has a horn, and it neighs?"

Anyone have a guess?
