A few of my favorite things....

March 16, 2008

We are in the middle of a two-part series at our church called "1 week 2 live". Last week we were all asked to write down 3 things we would do if we had one week to live. I wrote 1) spend every second with my family and hold my baby 2) tell all of my loved ones just how much I love them and 3) write down my thoughts. I figured you would have quite a few "thoughts" running through your head if you had one week to live. And with Jaymin being so small, I would want him to have something to read down the road that I had written, and hopefully he would hear my voice behind the words. Brian, our pastor, asked us to do this because the celebration of the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus is upon us. Jesus knew he was going to die. And there were specific things he did with his time before he was crucified. I'd like to think I would handle such a heavy load as that with just as much grace, wisdom, and peace as Jesus did. When I was thinking about MY three things and all of the amazing experiences I have yet to experience in this world, I couldn't help but think, no, I wouldn't fly to Greece, or gorge myself on every delectable food item that exists, or max out my credit cards on the shopping spree I've always dreamed of, no...all I could think of was every precious moment spent with my baby on my lap, my husband at my side, and just being in the presence of the family that I love so much...My dad makes the most amazing chocolate milkshakes I've ever tasted, better than any restaurant, so one of my favorite past-times is sitting around my parents' bar, eating milkshakes, and laughing at old stories that we tend to tell over and over again...yeah, that sounds like a pretty good way to go....

I love that last picture of Jaymin. He is so stinkin' cute! He looks so much older than Brayden to me, I think because of how much hair he has. Hopefully one day B. will grow some more hair. :)
