A captain (___) with seven children….what’s so fearsome about that?

I have confidence in the Lord Almighty ALONE!!!

What will this day be like? I wonder

What will my future be? I wonder

It could be so exciting To be out in the world To be free

My heart should be wildly rejoicing

Oh whats the matter with me?
I`ve always longed for adventure

To do the things I`ve never dared

Now here i`m facing adventure Then why am I so scared?

Captain with seven children Whats so fearsome about that?
Oh I must stop all these doubts All these worries If I don`t i just know i`ll turn back

I must dream of the things I am seeking I am seeking the courage I lack
The courage to serve them with reliance

Face my mistakes without defiance

Show them I`m worthy

And while I show them I`ll show me!

So! Let them bring me all their problems

I`ll do better than my best

I have confidence They`ll put me to the test

But I`ll make them see I have confidence in me
Somehow I will impress them

I will be firm but kind

And all those children Heaven bless them They will look up to me And mind me
With each step I am more certain

Everything will turn out fine

I have confidence the world can all be mine

They`ll have to agree I have confidence in me
I have confidence in sunshine

I have confidence in rain

I have confidence that spring will come again

Besides what you see I have confidence in me!
Strength doesn`t lie in numbers

Strength doesn`t lie in wealth

Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumber

When you wake up Wake up!
All I trust I give my heart to

All I trust becomes my own

I have confidence In confidence alone

O help…Besides what you see, I have confidence in me…..


As my son asked me to go to the playground tonight, after a long day with my sweet hubby away in a tough 2 week rotation to the field right now, I started to sing this song on our way…and envisioned our home with as many children as God may bless us with…and everything went really well until Hannah picked up dog poopie all the way to the playground…refused to hold my hand, walk, be held, and refused to cooperate in any reasonable way…we did make it to the playground though…and there she found more poopie to play with, ran towards the road away from the playground multiple times, and then my son looked at me and said “Mommy, it’s hot, can we go home now?”  I don’t think we were even there for 5 minutes….but as I go to bed tonight, regardless of the miniscule frustrations my sweet little ones give me every now and then…I simply cannot imagine our home with anything but a houseful of children 🙂   The Sound of Music, Little House on the Prairie, Little Women, Little Orphan Annie, Sherley Temple, Anne of Green Gables, the Waltons, and I Love Lucy were some of my favorite movies/shows/books to watch/read growing up….I’ll never outgrow them.
