May // Praise Him In The Storm – Natalie Grant

I was sure by now, God you would have reached down

And wiped our tears away

Stepped in and saved the day

But once again, I say Amen

And it’s still raining

And as the thunder rolls, I barely hear Your whisper through the rain

I’m with you

And as your mercy falls


I raise my hands and praise the God who gives and takes away

And I’ll praise you in this storm

And I will lift my hands

‘Cause you are who you are, no matter where I am

And every tear I’ve cried You hold in your hand

You never left my side

And though my heart is torn I will praise you in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind

You heard my cry, You raised me up again

My strength is almost gone, how can I carry on?

But as the thunder rolls, I barely hear You whisper through the rain

I’m with you

And I’ll praise you in this storm and I will lift my hands

‘Cause you are who you are, no matter where I am

I lift my eyes unto the hills

Where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord

The maker of heaven and earth

And though my heart is torn

I will praise you in this storm

Praise Him In The Storm – Natalie Grant


Hey Everyone.

It’s been awhile, just about a whole month. I didn’t plan on taking the month of June (and most of May) off of blogging, but that’s what ended up happening. When does life go as planned anyway, especially not this year. Taking a break was needed and simply because I just didn’t have time to put a post together. June was a crazy busy month and I know July will be crazy as well. I don’t know if I’m back for good or just for the week, I guess that only time will tell.

July is usually my favorite month of the year. Mainly because it is when I have gone to camp (it’s also my birthday month :). This year camp was canceled, just like so many of the other things we were all looking forward to, and I’ve been missing it every day. It’s hard to not focus on the many things that are not happening this year, but I am trying to choose to focus on the things that I can do (read, go for walks, spend time with my family) instead of the things that can’t do. I am so thankful for all of the space that I have to move around and for the books that I have access to. Although my summer doesn’t look like I planned, that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy it fully.

I have a bunch of post ideas (Hamilton themed!! Introducing Animals) and I hope that I end up with enough time to put them together. 🙂

I hope that you are all well and staying safe and healthy.

Who else literally cannot contain their excitement that Hamilton is coming to Disney+ this Friday!? How have you been filling your summer break free time? How are you?

Spring Photos// feat. Days Gone By – Hillsong Young And Free

I walked the world afar

Built up a thousand walls

To try and hide away

I searched to find my soul

A journey far from home

Lost in a life I’d made

And I’d been ’round in circles

Living for the moment

I know I ran so far

Was acting kind of crazy

Coming up with empty

Felt like I lost my heart

Now I’ve found a love that is clearer than the deep blue skies

It’s true You were right there

I can see it in the days gone by

I see You in the days gone by

Your promise never left my side

I know sometimes I tried to give up

Still You caught me when I fell from high

You took my fragile fate and didn’t hesitate

Your love in every scar

Passion with no restraints

Held back the darkest days

So now my life is Yours

You’ve got me when I’m broken

You’re with me when I’m hopeless

I know You’re never far

Your mercy has no ending

It perseveres unfailing

You’ll always have my heart

Now I’ve found a love that is clearer than the deep blue skies

It’s true You were right there

I can see it in the days gone by

I see you in the days gone by

Hey Everyone.

I can’t believe that the first week of May is already over! It has been a windy, chilly and sunny May so far for us. All of our cows and calves are now out on grass! (Pictures coming soon.) It is exciting to see things beginning to grow, although the grass is growing slower than we might want.

My brothers found four kittens this morning! A few years ago we got their mom from another farm with a litter of four kittens. Since that litter she has basically become feral and just comes to our barn (or attic) to have kittens every year. We have been seeing her around recently and we were guessing that she had kittens. My brothers have been looking around but didn’t find them until today. There are two boys and two girls, all of them absolutely adorable. I’ll be sure to share some pictures soon. 😀

Do you have a favorite spring flower? What is your favorite thing about spring?

Staring at a mountain thought I had already climbed

The weight of my mistakes hold me down like I’m paralyzed, yeah

How many times have I asked for grace

Standing in the same broken place?

I’ve given You every good reason to walk away

But somehow You choose me

Over and over again

You keep running to me

No matter where I am

Over and over again

I get lost I must confess

Oh, how quickly I forget

But You keep on showing me I’m loved, over and over again

God of second chances, here to catch me every time

I thought I was unlovable ’till You told this heart of mine, yeah

I’m worth more than my past mistakes

I’m never too far gone to save

I’ve given You every good reason to walk away

But somehow You choose me, over and over again

You keep running to me, no matter where I am, over and over again

But You keep on showing me I’m loved

Over and over again

In every sunrise I find

Another reminder of how much You love me

For all of this lifetime

You’ll never get tired of chasing my heart

How are you doing amidst the current panic, anxiety and confusion of the world right now? What have you been doing to stay busy and somewhat sane?

Have you heard For King & Country’s new song with Tori Kelly and Kirk Franklin, Together? What have you been listening to? What is your current favorite song?

Spring Is Here//feat. King of Kings – Hillsong

Without hope without light

Till from heaven You came running

There was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfil the law and prophets

To a virgin came the Word

From a throne of endless glory

To a cradle in the dirt

Praise the Father, Praise the Son

Praise the Spirit three in one

God of glory, Majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings

To reveal the kingdom coming and to reconcile the lost

To redeem the whole creation

You did not despise the cross

For even in Your suffering, You saw to the other side

Knowing this was our salvation

Jesus for our sake You died

And the morning that You rose all of heaven held its breath

Till that stone was moved for good

For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs

And the angels stood in awe

For the souls of all who’d come to the Father are restored

And the Church of Christ was born

Then the Spirit lit the flame

Now this gospel truth of old, shall not kneel shall not faint

By His blood and in His Name, in His freedom I am free

For the love of Jesus Christ who has resurrected me

King of Kings – Hillsong Worship


Thinking of you all during this very difficult time. I hope that you take some time celebrate this special day, the day we remember the resurrection of Jesus.
