Things that Make Your Heart Skip a Beat.....

I know that there have been times in my life where it felt like my heart skipped a beat. Like the day Mark asked me to marry him and the day that each of our children were born. To me those are very special times in your life. There are also many other things that give me that "skip a beat" or "hair tingling" feeling. I must say; that being able to lead someone to the Lord gives me that feeling as well. It is such an awesome thing to know that you were able to be used to help another stray lamb find their way to the Savior.

Today, I have had a few more experiences where my heart skipped a beat. This afternoon I walked into my bedroom and heard what sounded like paper brushing up against the wall. (not uncommon when I leave the fan on and my notes and things on my night stand). So, I went to retrieve what I thought were papers when to my surprise.........was a big(okay in my eyes it was big) black iguana. Don't even ask me how he managed to get in the house...but he did and he was in my bedroom. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Not because I am really that scared of them...but because that was the last thing that I expected to see in "MY BEDROOM"   (not a good skip a beat situation...but it was to funny not share)

Then, this evening was a great "skip a beat moment" when we sat as a  family and sang hymns in Spanish during our family devotion. It was such a sweet time. The kids have really adapted well and are doing good. We are also trying to teach them how to pray and to pray with their whole heart if they have needs and desires. It is sweet to hear the things that the kids pray for:

Some of the prayer requests include:
Their parents
The Church
Pastor Matt and family
basketball goal
they all want play soccer
whole chickens, cheddar cheese, ice cream and fruit

We know that God will answer the requests and there is nothing sweeter than to hear them pray for them. We encourage you all to sing and have family devotion and prayer time in your home if you don't might just be your "heart skipping a beat" moment as well.
