Our Memories

A genuine laugh from belly kisses
I know
You'll forget this moment that my heart already misses
Reveling our memories of smiles and silly songs
I’ll hold our spot here

God’s tangible thought
I tilt to smell your hair
Reminiscence of heaven's atmosphere

Today I saw
The purest smile on earth
Intricate art
Our memories frozen in the frame of my heart
Destined to fade before they’d fully start

This part of you will never grow old
Sweet baby Gabby
Forever safe in my soul

Sweet little angel
on loan from above
Our memories
Locked in the eternal sunshine of a mother’s love
Deficient in Tears
Void of Pain
Absent from
and all torrents of Rain
A haven for my heart’s sweet little treasure

My precious shuggie
At last

Until then my memories
Will hold you here
Emblazoned in my mind

Our Memories
bright and unjaded
best of all never to end

Where would I be if You hadn't Found me
Love without boundary
Your presence exponentially abounds
when darkness surrounds me
Your unwound Light wraps itself around me
Therefore all my nights shine as day
There is no place where Your presence won't abide me
You are here
and the midst of Your love and peace
provide my soul's stillness
You have drawn me with cords of lovingkindness
My soul seeks you with endless fervor
You are my heart's treasure
My mind revels in awe
of how
You sought me again when You knew I was prone to be lost
You bought me when Your very life was my cost
And though I wander
I know
I am
and always will be

My Inheritance

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.- Ps 127:3

Where You are there I shall be also.
You have blessed me with all possible blessings
In all the heavenly places
There is a place you are preparing for me
A place for me
All the days of my life
I will dwell
In Your Father's house
You have given me a piece of your heart
A tangible thought from the infinite mind of wisdom
I cherish her
Your sweetest gift in my life
Yes Lord
You have done this
And it is MARVELOUS in my eyes

Gabrielle Susan Nichelle Hassell
God is my Strength
Joy, Bright, and Cheerful
In Him I am Victorious

Forever Sunshine

You and I
Forever getting to know the One who knows
Exactly where we’re going
Attempting to trust Him through life’s demanding blows
But in my mind
Yes when I close my eyes
Through it all
We’re still basking in the sunshine
Sugar with the strongest of lemons
Water and ice
A toast as we drink our life’s lemonade
Trusting Him
Clouds threaten our parade
And True
Even perfect days can end in rain
As you hold my hand I can feel you take on my pain
Truer still
I’m never alone
That’s why I still believe in sunshine
Through these rain clouds I see Him smile
Because he designed our forever sunshine
To be in this moment with you is His gift

Gabrielle's Mommie

I love you. Even though I’ve never met you. Even though I’ve never kissed you. Or looked into your eyes and felt my heart smile. I feel so honored to have the pleasure of being your Mommie. The one who loves you unconditionally. The one you can depend on to help you and be there for you. You’re mine, but most importantly I’m yours. I think about you all the time. Not like I can help it, if I pause even for a moment, while I’m running in this maze called life, your hiccups, kicks, and rolls excite me back into the reality that we’re together. Yes me and you. Your presence reminds me that God is my strength. I love the fact that He named you that. Because it means that I have calm assurance that you will be a strong woman because He is strong. He gives power to the weak and to those that have no might He increases strength! AWESOME! I think about some of the things we will do together. Laugh at an inside joke. Share a smile from across the room. Cuddle for story time. Fall asleep in each other’s arms. Watch some sunsets, watch a lot of sunrises, and enjoy all the beautiful days in between. I think about sharing ice cream cones, baking cupcakes, hearing you say I LOVE YOU MOMMIE, and feeling my heart break because I can’t express how much I love you back. But I’ll find comfort in telling you "I love you 2 Gabby", until Jesus tells us an even more expressive way to verbalize love. Today I thought about how me and your father have the privilege of re-introducing you to our best friend. You’re His thought, before He formed you in my womb He knew you, and He loved you. Watching you grow to know him is a joy that fills my soul and spills out into a celebration in my spirit that gives me hope, faith, and assurance. I am yours, you are mine, but most importantly we are HIS. I love you my sweet Sugar Baby!!! My heart, My Baby, My Gabby!!!!

Love Your Mommie

Flight 771

Libyan jet with 104 crashes; child sole survivor

TRIPOLI, Libya – A Libyan plane carrying 104 people crashed Wednesday on approach to Tripoli's airport, leaving a field scattered with smoldering debris that included a large chunk of the tail painted with the airline's brightly colored logo. A 10-year-old Dutch child was the only known survivor.

The Dutch prime minister said everyone on the Afriqiyah Airways Airbus A330-200 arriving from Johannesburg, South Africa was killed except the child, whose survival was hailed as a miracle.

The youth was taken to a hospital in Tripoli and was undergoing surgery for injuries including broken bones. Libyan TV showed video of the dark-haired child lying in a hospital bed with a bandaged head and wearing an oxygen mask. The child had intravenous lines in one arm and appeared to be conscious.

"Afriqiyah Airways announces that our flight 771 had an accident during landing at Tripoli International airport," a statement said. "At this moment, we have no information concerning possible casualties or survivors. Our information is that there were 93 passenger and 11 crew aboard. Authorities are conducting the search and rescue mission."

Libyan Transport Minister Mohammed Ali Zaidan said 96 bodies have been recovered from the wreckage and rescuers were searching for the rest of the victims.

The head of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek said the child's survival was "truly a miracle." The plane was approaching the airport in the Libyan capital Tripoli when it crashed at around 6 a.m. (0400 GMT, 11 p.m. EDT Tuesday) There was no immediate word on the cause, according to a statement by the airlines posted on its website.

Flash Love

A love song for you
A word from my heart
True because it’s from you
Pure because it’s for you
I praise you because you think of me when I don’t think of you
A love that isn’t dependent on what I say or don’t do
I am so thankful that I need you
A split moment that I didn’t think
A flash of danger
And I blinked
Never sleep or encumbered
What I missed
Your mind had already weighed, counted, and numbered
Thank you for looking out for me
For helping me even though I don’t deserve it
I thank you for being worthy
For loving me
Even when I’m not loving you

Still There :)

Its just so good to know that even when we mess up and turn away that Jesus is still there! His love will NEVER change!! We don't have to be afraid!! He is always there :) Peace Be Still

Jesus Will Still Be There

Things change, plans fail
You look for love on a grander scale
Storms rise, hopes fade
And you place your bets on another day
When the going gets tough
When the ride’s too rough
When you’re just not sure enough


Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as the steady rain
Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
He’ll still be loving you
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there

Time flies, hearts turn
A little bit wiser from lessons learned
But sometimes, weakness wins
And you lose your foothold once again
When the going gets tough
When the ride’s too rough
When you’re just not sure enough

(repeat chorus)

(2x)When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there

With Long Life

First of all I would like to say I am back from a long break. I am overwhelmed with praise for our Creator! This weekend was a trying time for me. But I praise God because He is merciful and longsuffering! Not because I have done anything to deserve his mercy, but I praise Him because He is worthy!!

Thy Word is Truth (John 17:17)
Jesus is the living word (John 1:14)
Jesus is Truth (John 14:6)

I was reading Psalm 91 which is a word directly from Jesus. Dwelling in the secret place of the Most High is abiding under the shadow of the almighty, which is abiding in Jesus!! He WILL deliver you from the snare of the fowler and You shall not be afraid of the terror by night! I laughed when I read this! It’s supernatural!!! Basically you will not fear TERROR!! Hallelujah!!!! Awesome!! You shall call upon the Lord and He will answer you. He will be with you in trouble and deliver you and honor you! With long life He will satisfy you and he will show you His salvation!! I praise God because His word is TRUTH Jesus is TRUTH every word is true and I wanted to testify of this!! This song really sums this up!! I will PRAISE YOU FOREVER With LONG LIFE you WILL satisfy me and Lord in my life be Glorified :)))

Hello 2010!!!

Wowwwww!!! I have been here for over a year!! SO much has happened!! AS I look back through my 2009 New Year post I realize that my resolutions have spilled over into 2010.. Well some of them have, others have become obsolete, as in not so sure I want that anymore!!!!

I've gone through hundreds of recipes, laughter, tears, songs, encouragement, despair, unfailing love, utter disappointment, and indescribable JOY!!!! I just think it is so awesome that God has divided the day and night and allowed us to mark time by the sun, moon, and stars (Gen 1:14). God is everything to me. When I realize that He isn't everything He calls me back! What an awesome friend. I encourage you to read Psalm 139. It is a absolutely beautiful psalm about how God knows us all individually. If you were born God designed you!!! While you were just the size of a lentil!! LOL!!! With plans like that I am sure he has designed your entire life. Including this year. What a FRIEND we have in Jesus!!!!

With all of that said I would like to redirect you all back to my 2009 New Year's Resolutions. Out of the entire list I did almost read the bible through in a year. I am 5 steps closer to Medical school, I didn't get a Quaker Parrot but I did get a dog. And I feel like my life has purpose and direction. 2010 is a big year for my whole family!!! Will explain this more in future post.... :))))) But I am so thankful that God has established some unquestionable facts...

1.) God Delights in You
2.) God has a Plan for You
3.) God's Timing is Always Perfect
4.) God Never Gives Up on You
5.) God is With You!!!!

With these 5 FACTS I can face 2010 :)

I look forward to posting more frequently in the future and I am so thankful for you, yes you whoever is reading this, thank you for your time and I pray that you will be blessed, inspired, and content through whatever you are going through and wherever you are!!!

Happy New Year!!!!

Love you!!!
