A great reminder for all the many times I get discouraged at the list of things I still need to do everyday...

I got up early one morning,
And rushed right into the day
I had so much to accomplish,
That I didn't have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me,
and heavier came each task.
"Why doesn't God help me?" I wondered.
He said, "But you didn't ask."

I wanted to see joy and beauty,
But the day toiled on, gray and bleak. 
I wondered why God didn't show me, 
He said, "But you didn't seek."

I tried to come into God's presence;
I used all my keys at the lock. 
God gently and lovingly chided,
"My child, you simply need knock."

I woke up early this morning, 
And paused before entering the day.
I had so much to accomplish, 
That I needed to take time to pray.

My Pinkalicious Princess is THREE!

You are sensitive, girly, kind-hearted, creative, artistic, a great vegetable eater! and oh soooo loving...just a few words that come to mind when I think about my first born baby girl :-)
You are such a great big sister and care for Paisley so much. I love your sweet smile and tender heart. It all started just when you were a few months old...that thumb and those made me laugh when it started with your racoon's tail. You would drag that thing everywhere...then you discovered THE BOAH at your one year birthday party and we have gone through several boahs since then; slowly picking them apart. You've even trained sissy to pluck a feather (or a dozen) and stick her finger in her mouth as you grin as if excited for her.
Gosh you warm my heart!
Thank you for bringing so much JOY to our lives! I love you so much!
Happy Third Birthday sweet girl!
