Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Children Of God - MMMM

It's that time again to make music make your Mondays better! Weeeeeeeeee. Party on beautiful ones! 

This song is so appropriate for the blog tour I'm doing this week for adoption. Oh how dear this is to my heart. 

Enjoy the rest of your week. Do something to fill your happy tank and thanks for visiting! 

Praise to the Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ

Our God and our King, to Him we will sing

In His great mercy, He has given us life
Now we can be called the children of God
Great is the Love that the Father has given us

He has delivered us

He has delivered us

Children of God, sing your song and rejoice
For the love that He has given us all
Children of God, by the blood of His Son
We have been redeemed and we can be called

Children of God

Children of God

A mystery is revealed to the universe
The Father above has proven His love
Now we are free from the judgment that we deserve
And so we are called the children of God

We are the saints
We are the children
We've been redeemed
We've been forgiven
We are the sons and daughters of our God

Welcome to Meet Me Monday!  Meet Me Monday is a weekly link-up hosted by Inspiring You To Save! created for socializing and to get new followers, subscribers, and readers.  Every Monday a new linky will be posted..


1.  If you had to eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I want to say fettuccine, but gosh I'd get so fat!  And I do want to say cake :) But can I just say fruits and nuts? Because that is what I would want to keep healthy. 

2.  Do you write your blog posts in advance or the day you post them?
Both. Sometimes I have it done and waiting to go and other times I forgot and I'm in a 'oh crap freak out kinda moment' to get it done. :) 
3.  Have you ever ridden in an ambulance?
My daughter fell and hit her head and I was freaked out. Turns out she was ok and just needed skin glue on the spot on her head. The head just bleeds alot (how was I supposed to know that? ) She was 2. I was a new mom that never dealt with anything like that before, so yes I was freaked out. I called 911. She was streaming blood! 
The ambulance came. We went to the hospital.  And yes they charged us. Next time, I throw kid in my car and rush myself there. 
Dh didn't make me feel any better about it either and it still stings a bit. But that's life. 

4.  What is your favorite candle scent?
I like Pomegranate with sandalwood. 
5.  Coffee or tea?
Both. I drink tea more often then coffee. Especially when I have a cold or when it's winter and cold. 
Coffee, I only drink after church on Sundays :) It's my little treat.

  5. I like your song pick. I hadn't heard this one. I'm keeping note of all of my favorites today.

    I haven't linked up with Java just yet, but will. I'm a coffee & tea drinker, too. Everyday I have at least a cup of coffee, whereas tea I just drink when the mood hits me. =D

  6. Darn it...this made me cry! I have such a big soft spot for kids and my tears started the moment I saw them in their Adopted T-shirts and heard them sing. Great choice.

    ...and BTW...I love the quote you have published under the #UBP11 button on your sidebar in the Welcome box. I'm going to steal it so I can remind myself with it.

  7. That's an awesome song! It's also my believe that all children are children of God.

  8. I've never heard of skin glue! I envy people who write their posts up ahead of time. I am so bad about that!

    1. I didn't hear about it before either E.
