it is well with my soul lyrics.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to know,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But Lord, 'tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

amazing soup!

this soup rocked our socks off.
please try it!!


we used chicken better than boullion, whole wheat tortellini, fire roasted diced tomatoes, pesto in place of the basil, topped it with parm/romano...oh my WORD.
we were ooohing and ahhhing all through dinner.
paired it with some whole grain crusty rolls.

elderberry syrup tutorial

with the crazy h1n1 running rampant, i thought i would post an educational video on how to make your own elderberry syrup.
if you don't want to make your own, i would recommend sambucol .

hope everyone is staying healthy this flu season.

autism video

this video is under a lot of heat. i personally think it is very educational and inspiring.
warning: it is intense and a few statements are purely based on percentages.

if this mama is knocked off her horse, she WILL get back up and ride. be very sure of that.

IEP's make me all teary-eyed.

i will admit it.
they do.

my dream is to semi-homeschool these babies.
but for now...liam is in public pre-k. an inclusive class. and i adore the teachers. it's the best thing for us right now. i have a job and two little girlies to look after.

but oh my word, the IEP's.

they leave me reeling sometimes.

it's hard enough entrusting your own child to someone that you haven't known for more than 30 mins, but hearing that your child won't eat at school and hearing that i should send better food to school for his lunch? ouch. not that i'm blaming...i'm very new to this.

this is a kid who will eat a total of like 7 things. i am his mama. i KNOW what he will or will not eat. i send like 20 things in his lunchbox because i know this.

tough nite tonite. that's all.

easy peasy chicken and dumplins

(this is my friend denise's recipe, not mine...i just changed/added a few things to it)

get a small rotisserie chicken
put in crockpot, pour over a carton of chicken broth
add in:
a couple of stalks of celery, chopped up
carrots (i used baby carrots...about a handful
couple tablespoons minced garlic or a couple of whole cloves of garlic
an onion, chopped in large pieces
salt and pepper

put on high for a few hours...remove chicken and let cool...pick the meat off and toss it all back in the pot with the broth/veggies.

now get yourself a can of whomp biscuits. (you know...the kind you whomp on the counter to open 'em?) you want the cheap buttermilk ones...not the layer ones.
take you pizza cutter and slice them into 6 pieces...or 8 if you want...or 10 if you want teeny dumplins.
toss the little pieces in a little cornstarch (couple tablespoons) and drop them into the pot.

cover and let it all cook for another 30 mins or so. chow down.

super yummo!!

(hide the biscuit can) ;)

songs that have shaped me

timmy and i sometimes have a "youtube" night where we search for songs that have really "shaped" us growing up.

i thought i would start a little posting of those every now and then.

the first song that i want to add is a song that has literally gotten me through many hard times in my life.

i'm a "feel music deeply" girl and i'm also a "feel God in nature" girl, so this song gets me every time.

(listen to it loudly...and yeah, i usually tear up at the "newborn's cry at birth" part and i most often HAVE to raise my hands at the "i believe" part. feel free to do the same thing. *wink* )
