BC: Days 6, 7, 8

Blog Challenge Day 6: A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet

This is a chinchilla and I L-O-V-E chinchillas.  That is a little fact most people don't know about me.  I friggin' love chinchillas!! I want one as a pet so bad.  For those of you who know Hubs, when we are back in America please remind him that this would make an excellent birthday gift and would score him major, major points for a really long time :):):)  I especially like this picture because this chinchilla is a bit overweight like my fat cat Phoenix :)

Blog Challenge Day 7: Your dream wedding thank you.

Blog Challenge Day 8: A song to match your mood

I chose Jeremy Camp's song "There Will Be A Day". GORGEOUS.  I love it.  Here is the chorus:

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face

But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

I chose this song because currently, some very precious people in my life are experiencing the following: death of a parent, maritial separation, infertility, and miscarrige (that last one is me of course).  I just think about those words and I truly believe them.  I hurt for my friends and I long for the day with no more tears or pain.  I truly do long for Heaven.  I don't think I would miss anything on earth if I went to Heaven right now.  But, anyway, the song goes on to say that "We'll hold on to you always" meaning God of course.  But Jeremy Camp says it like a declaration, which I love.  It is not a question.  In my mind it is a very emphatic "We WILL hold on to you ALWAYS" no matter what happens, God, I will forever cling to you because you are good and I trust you.   Oh man, if you haven't heard it you should go to You Tube right now because it is so awesome.

Day 8 made me cry. You should find a way to listen to a song by Matthew West: A Few More Days. There are lyrics on my "wear my heart on my blog" post. Thank you for thinking of your friends. I'm thinking of you today!

And ps-I feel the same way about Heaven. I'm so very excited about it.

Baby Girl's photographer says "Tres Cute"!! Haha, that is so funny. I just thought she was kinda weird, I didn't realize it was mainstream. Seriously, I cannot stop laughing. I don't know why it strikes me as so funny, but it does! I'm going to start using it too!! You are tres pretty! :):)
