I am the Luckiest.

So I was checking out some new photos that were taken last week when Amy got home from Africa.







and I was listening to my playlist (I always listen to it at work...)







and the song "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds came on. For the second time today, I started crying in the middle of my office (good thing no one is really here except for me today...feel better Candace :D)...







Each face in this photo has shown Jesus to me in one way or another.













I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know
That I am
I am
I am
The Luckiest.

How good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell together in unity...

O Magnify the Lord with me; Let us exalt his name together.

Lauren, I stumbled upon your blog a few days ago and I thought it was time to fess up to my blogstalking :) You are so funny and witty and I have really enjoyed what little I've read so far. I always knew you would do great things!
