    Ash Wednesday

    Today is the first day of the season of Lent. Take a moment to reflect upon all the wonderful blessings in life.

    No, no, go ahead I'll wait.

    There, now don't you feel inspired?

    There are crazy things going on in the scrap world but I'll fill you in on those later. I've been busy at church getting ready for our services today and I need to leave shortly to go donate blood so I'll be quick and just say that you all are wonderful and I love you.

    Here's a little something for you all. I had made it last year for my Newsletter readers but I think you all need a treat today. It's a cute zipper for you to scrap with, you can can change the tape or not even use it, your choice. Enjoy!

    My Super Power

    Just wanted to share with you all the cutest thing that happened last night, I wrote it down and want to share it with you all:
    My Super Power

    Tonight I got Emma ready for bed. We said our prayers, then our Sunday night ritual of thanking God for blessing us with so many friends and family whom we love. (This list is starting to get extremely long as Emma gets older.) After that I asked Emma if she was ready for bed. She responded with, "No mommy, I need to ask God to make me 'credible like you when I get big."

    If you're like me, you wondered what being 'credible was, so I asked her what she meant. Emma informed me I have super powers like the Incredibles. We've watched that DVD so many times I can quote it, so I knew exactly who she meant. I was now curious, what is my super power? So with a little tickle I asked Emma if my super power was that I could fly. She told me to stop being so silly. I asked if I could control the weather. She gave me a look of disdain and rolled her eyes. After a moment she heaved a great big sigh, then turned on the bed and looked me square in the eye. "No mommy, your super power is your love."

    With that she kissed me goodnight, rolled over and went to sleep. I crept out of her room a bit clumsily as I couldn't quite see clearly, darn those tears. My daughter thinks love, my love, is a super power. And she has made me see it truly is. My kisses can heal all boo-boos, my hugs are always warm and safe, just filled with comfort. In her eyes I can do anything and fix all problems.
    I am a super hero armed with love.

    Are you a super hero too?
    I wonder how many of us are out there, seemingly unaware of our super abilities until someone shows us the way.

    We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
