Sunday Song

"Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble?"

Did you feel the mountains tremble?
Did you hear the oceans roar?
When the people rose to sing of
Jesus Christ, the risen One

Did you feel the people tremble?
Did you hear the singers roar?
When the lost began to sing of
Jesus Christ, the Saving One

And we can see that
God You’re moving
A mighty river through the nations
And young and old will turn to Jesus
Fling wide you heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

Open up the doors
Let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance
Upon injustice

Do you feel the darkness tremble?
When all the saints join in one song
And all the streams flow as one river
To wash away our brokenness

Here It Comes...

I graduate college in one week from today.


I think I'm supposed to feel somewhat bittersweet about this...but honestly...I'm just excited. Really, really excited!

Welcome To The World Ryland!

Our good friends, Chris and Amelia, finally had their baby on Tuesday! So yesterday Mike and I made the trip to Tulsa to meet baby Ryland. We also had to deliver some particular brownies to Amelia. A long while back she had requested some of my brownies for when she was in the hospital, so, of course, we had to bring them! While we were there visiting she asked me why we made the trip just to be there for a few hours. I tried telling her about the brownies and how important they were for her, but she just wouldn't hear it! She made me admit that we really made the trip for Ryland! There may have been just a little bit of truth to this... But I was definitely glad to get to see Chris and Amelia too. It's fun to see them in this new role of parents and I can't wait to see them grow in it...and to get to spoil Ryland like crazy!

Some snuggle time with Ryland.

The new family!

In addition to the brownies I also made some Oreo Pops. This time I made them in a Liverpool soccer theme for Ryland (or really his Daddy) since that's the theme of his room. They turned out pretty cute!

Sunday Song

I have been reading the blog Bless Our Nest for a while now and she weekly makes a post called "Sunday Song". I have decided to start making this weekly post myself. It will simply consist of the lyrics to a song that I find encouraging for myself. And cool enough, I actually have the song on here at the bottom of the post and you can listen to it. I will try to add that each week if it is available. So here is my first Sunday Song.

"In Christ Alone"

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

Happy Easter!

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you." So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Matthew 28: 5-8

I pray that you all have had a wonderfully blessed Easter weekend with your friends and family as you remember the gift of the Resurrection that Christ gave to us. May you be filled with the same joy that these women were filled with that day.

A Night For Baking

I am a baker. Be sure to note the word bake. Cook...not so much my thing. Who needs three wonderfully cooked meals a day when you can bake cute treats all day long?? That's pretty much my philosophy on life, and tonight was a perfect night for baking.

I decided to make some Easter Oreo Pops. They are oh so cute and, even better, oh so delicious! I found the recipe here at One More Moore. These were so easy and I will definitely be making them for many more occasions! Now I just need to find someone to give them to so Mike and I don't eat all of them...

Look at all the sprinkle options!! I just love sprinkles!

So cute! I just love 'em!
