Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you WILL perform it until the day of Jesus Christ"

It is late, but I couldn't sleep, so I was watching part of a broadcast of the Country Music Video awards. I love Martina McBride, and she closed the show with this song, that I had never heard before. I loved the words.

You can spend your whole life buildin'
Something from nothin
One storm could come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You could chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like i think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This worlds gone crazy
And it's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all you heart
For all the right reasons
And in a momemt they can choose to walk away
Love 'em anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like i think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singin'
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yeah sing it anyway

I sing
I dream
I love anyway

Hi Sandy... Martina McBride is wonderful, isn't she.. ! Her song, Build It Anyway is on the top ten of the country stations and I just love it. She sang it on American Idol this week too. (Ok.. we are American Idol die hards around her!)Today is Jacob's 21st birthday. He's such a good kid. I saw Steve the other day and he says he's feeling so much better. Jonathon wants to help him in the fields if needed this spring. Hope said she saw you at the park and I showed her Paige's drawing. She loved it. I saved so much of Hope's art work. She's such a talented artist. Maybe Paige got her ability from Hope. Hope can absolutely draw anything. And you should see some of her pottery. Luke is weightlifting for football already three nights a week. He has the body for a weightlifter. Gary's good friend Mark Dodd is Luke's football coach and has taken a job at Bismarck next year. We just love him. Give the girls a hug for me. Love you guys so much and hey... I am making plans for the 4th of July already. I just need to find out who is on the committee with me. xo Katy

Katy, I have the 4th off this year, so will be present! Aunt Shawn has the list for the committee. I think I have Christmas, but I may switch because I know I can be there for the 4th. I am really looking forward to a Reese family 4th of July!
