His Hands...

I LOVE this song. My sister will be signing this song for Christmas in my ward... and I think she does an amazing job. I added the song to the bottom of my blog so if you would like to play it and give it a listen while reading the lyrics..you may! ;) It's a beautiful song.

his hands
tools of creation
stronger than nations
power without end
and yet through them we find our truest friend
his hands
sermons of kindness
healing men's blindness
halting years of pain
children waiting to be held again

his hands would serve his whole life though
showing man what hands might do
giving, ever giving, endlessly
each day was filled with selflessness
and i'll not rest until i make up my hands what they could be
'til these hands become like those from galilee

his hands
lifting a leper
warming a beggar
calling back the dead
breaking bread, five thousand fed
his hands
hushing contention
pointing to heaven
ever free of sin
then bidding man to follow him

his hands would serve his whole life though
showing man what hands might do
giving, ever giving, endlessly
each day was filled with selflessness
and i'll not rest until i make up my hands what they could be
'til these hands become like those from galilee

his hands
clasped in agony
as he he lay pleading, bleeding in the garden
while just moments away
other hands betray him
out of greed, shameful greed
and then his hands
are trembling
straining to carry the beam that they've been led to
as he stumbles through the streets
heading towards the hill on which he died
he would die
they take his hands, his mighty hands, those gentle hands
and then they pierce them, they pierce them
he lets them, because of love
from birth to death was selflessness
and clearly now i see him with his hands
calling to me
and though i'm not yet as i would be
he has shown me how i could be
i will make my hands like those from galilee

ALMOST... We've still got lots to do, plus we're moving in 3 weeks and I only have about 7 more weeks of being pregnant, so I'm still just slightly overwhelmed!! How's your cute little boy? Getting so big I bet!!

No, we're not buying a house yet, I think it's smart right now to wait a bit longer til this economy thing plays out, and housing prices are still going down quite a bit.. so maybe in the next couple months. I just don't want to buy until I find something perfect that we can stay in for a LONG TIME... I'm so sick of moving!! We found a really cute condo though that is perfect for our little fam so I'm excited about that.
I'm getting more nervous I think now that we're so close, and I keep thinking brady will get nervous, but he's totally not! He's just excited for her to get here.. it's funny because I've been around kids so much and he really hasn't so you'd think it would be the other way.. but no, he's so laid back anyway.. hopefully our little girl is more like him!! haha.
That's crazy your boy is almost crawling, they grow up sooo fast, I am nervous to even have her because I know it will just fly by!! I guess I just need to enjoy this last bit of pregnancy too, I just MIGHT miss it one day.. ;)
