Name of song?

I need some help with a song that I keep hearing on the radio. The chorus go like this....
"oh, great light of the world, fill up of my heart. I'm half a man here, so come make me whole"...or something like this. Any idea who the artist is?? Sounds kind of like Andy Chrisman??

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things I wish to do one day or just do again!

1) learn how to smock

2) work full time with children & ministries

3) Take the girls to the Biltmore Estates

4) make a brick patio off the back our house

5) Have a third child (soon hopefully)

7) Own my own business, children's shoe shop

8) take the girls to Disney World and sleep in Cinderella's Castle

9) be more organized, I need some lessons form Rebekah

6 quirky things about me..

I will not be able to tag these on to anyone because everyone is already taken. Oh well, here we go..hope you enjoy!

1) I only sleep in tank tops, I can't stand to feel clothes on my legs or arms while I'm sleeping.

2) Brushing my teeth is the last thing I do to get ready. I usually take a shower, drink my coffee and tend to everyone else's needs, get dress, drink more coffee, eat bfast, iron clothes, put on make up, then brush my teeth before walking out door.

3) I never cook with recipes and never cook anything the same way. I just throw a little of this and a little of that to a general meal to had a little flare & variation. Did I mention...I LOVE to ccok.

4) I love to get my hair cut, I'm always changing the style but never get my hair colored. I just sit down and say, " do something different"

5) I can't stand to see hair in children's faces. My girls will always have a clip, bow or something to hold it back. I even move hair out of my children's faces at church (all 30+ of them) Children's faces are so precious, why cover them up. Having a bad day, just look into the eyes of a child, yours or not yours.

6) I get really upset when I see really overweight people ordering and eating really unhealthy foods. I don't eat 100% healthy, but I can afford to do so. When I say upset, I mean I want to counsel them or something. I would NEVER do that, but my instinct is to do so. CRAZY..I know!!!!

$1,200 for a piece of plastic...

Yep, that's right...$1,200 to correct the severe TMJ that I have. I think for now, I'm just going to treat with ibuprofen & prayer. That will work, I know it will.

Braces at 28???

For a long time now, I have been having severe problems with my left jaw. I consulted in my family dentist this morning and he has advised me to go to a specialist. So I will be heading to Dothan this afternoon for that appointment. Please pray for me, I'm looking at either braces, a mouth splint or even surgery. I ignored the problem for sometime, but it has become a real problem......can't open my mouth to eat a really good hamburger!!!!! Pray for me please!!! I'll update after my appointment this afternoon.

Funny Friday Laugh

Carrot & apple salad

1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 pound carrots, peeled and trimmed
1 Granny Smith apple, cored
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint leaves Salt

Fold a full sheet of paper towel into quarters and place it in a small bowl. Spoon the yogurt on top of the paper towel. Place it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes so the yogurt can drain and thicken.
In a small bowl whisk together the thickened yogurt and the mayonnaise, until smooth. Whisk in the lemon juice, vinegar, and honey.
Grate first the carrots and then the apples in a food processor. Transfer them to a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour the dressing over the carrot mixture and toss. Add the mint and season with salt.
Serve chilled.

Reyse doesn't care for the mint! Abigail loves it!!! Great either way!!
