The house is clean and quite. Well, The kitchen and front room are clean . I have a cold Dr.Pepper and the radio on. Rob is grocery shopping with Lexie and Katie is watching the Disney channel! Lottie is napping in her warm little bed. I have dinner planned. My mother in law is here visiting. I love that she is her. She knits little things for the girls and makes me feel comfortable about myself and my house and life. I feel content in this moment. I don't always feel this way so I have to enjoy the moments when they come.

I am a child of God

Tonight I was reading a book to my sweet girls as I was putting them to bed and the words in the book touched my spirit so much and it explains in such simple words how I feel.

I am a child of god so he shares his love with me. I am happy when I share with others
I know god listens to me because I am his child
I am a child of God and he sees me as I can become
I know I am a child of God because he surrounds me with people who love me and keep me safe
Because I am a child of God I can learn about his world and share what I learn with others
I am a child of God and his angles watch over me
I am a Child of God and I can love creatures- both great and small
Because I am God's child he shows me the way to my dreams
I am a child of god and he wants me to choose friends who will help me climb higher
Because God loves and cares for me I can learn to care for others
I am God's child and he has given me a wonderful world to explore
I am a child of God and he gives me talents to share with others to make his world more beautiful
I can be brave and strong and I am never alone
I am a child of God and Jesus is my Brother.
They know my name and they love me.

-Wendy and Michael Nelsen

Today I feel such a strong connection to my faith. I find such comfort in knowing that I have a Heavenly father and a savior that died for ME. I find comfort in the guidance the church gives us. I saw first hand last night as my little family sat down for Family home evening. I talked about compassion and I read a story and after I asked Katie what compassion meant and she said caring and loving others and expecting nothing in return. My heart melted. God loves me and he challenges me when he knows I need it and he comforts me when I need it too. I pray that everyone can feel a connection to god, you don't have to be Mormon or Jewish or Muslim. Just find a special place in your heart for the one that loves you unconditionslly and that created you. Faith is s gift you can give your self and others believe what you believe and never feel ashamed abut it

Today my heart is full of things I love doing for my family. I love cooking yummy food for them and watching them enjoy it. I love doing laundry and knowing that my family has clean clothes and fresh towels . I love cleaning and knowing that my family feels loved and comfortable in our home. I love tucking my sweet angle babies in bed at night and then after they are asleep I go in and kiss their sweet soft little plump cheeks . I whisper how much I love them and how they make everyday worth it.
