I Am a Child of God

I am a child of God, and He has sent me here,
Has given me an earthly home with parents kind and dear.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do to live with Him someday.
I am a child of God, and so my needs are great,
Help me to understand His words before it grows too late.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do to live with Him someday.
I am a child of God. Rich blessings are in store,
If I but learn to do His will I'll live with him once more.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do to live with Him someday.

I think this hymn is a pretty close to being my favorite hymn to sing. The first time that I ever sang this one I could feel the Holy Spirit. I try to think of this hymn when I'm needing a pick me up. It reaffirms the reason that we are here on earth. And I know that loved ones who have passed are there with Heavenly Father and that helps when I'm sad. I know that I have said this before, but I am truly grateful for this knowledge that I have been given.

Babysitting Michael

We got to babysit Little Michael again. Rosie and Mikey went to a birthday dinner with friends and we got Michael. I actually loaded the pictures backwards, so this is when we were getting him ready to go to bed.

Daniel and Michael were wrestling on the floor. I wish I had a video of it. Michael was pulling on Daniel's hair and at one point he poked Daniel in the eye. They were laughing and having so much fun.

This is him after pulling himself up. If he keeps that up he'll be walking soon. After he got up he would turn to give Daniel the ball.

He is using Uncle Dan to help himself up.

It was dinner time when he first got to our house. It was fun to feed him. When you don't have any little ones in the house you forget that you have to be fast when feeding them. It was really fun to have him for the evening. He is a funny kid and Daniel LOVES to help out in any way. he did alot of entertaining Michael. Daniel was a great help.
