As life goes out like a light, out like a flame,
You can't find it anymore
just when you think its lost
it comes back knocking at your door,
Its the wheel of the world-turning around and around.
God puts us here on this carnival ride
we close our eyes never knowing where it will take us next
babies are born in absent time and someone is taking their last breath
Its the wheel of the world, its the wheel of the world, spinning around.
In a blink of an eye it can change your life
and it never even slows down,
Its the wheel of the world.....
Our purpose of life is to bring our God glory, to glorify Him. He created us for His glory. So, as I think of life and death and the wheel of the world, what am I doing to show others the glory of God. Is my life pointing to Him enough?
Ryan and I talked how we make our everyday life a life that glorifies God in our home, our marriage, raising our girls, serving in our church, meeting our community, etc.
You see the loss of my sister's friend is not all sad. She had talents, gifts, and a heart that served God and her life portrayed that in many ways. I know people see her and say, "what a testimoney of life and her love for God." She arranged her life in a way that brought her God glory. My prayer for myself is the same.
Thank you to my small group as we study Glorify and hold each other accountable to living a life that does glorify God.

I write this blog to celebrate my mom and dads 36th wedding anniversary today April 1, 2008.
I often think of my parents and the journey they have taken over the years with many obstacles and changes that have occurred in their life together. The one thing that has been constant is their marriage and love to one another and I celebrate that blessing. A legacy of love... a legacy of friendship... a legacy of laughter... and a legacy of raising a Christian family. This legacy, I now get to carry on with Ryan and my girls. I am blessed to have a family who carries a legacy of commitment based on God's love.
