Seeing Double

On this TSMS I’d like to dedicate a special song to my sister Stephanie. Now that I have moved away we don’t get to see each very often and I’ve really missed hanging out with her.

Steph drove up Thursday morning and from the moment she arrived it was like old times. We had so much fun catching up. We laughed our selves silly, shopped till we literally dropped, and stayed up late sharing so many wonderful memories. There is nothing like having a sister to share your love, life, hopes and dreams with.

Stephanie is my youngest sister. Everywhere we go people ask if we are twins! We always think this is so funny and so much fun. Maybe it’s our personalities, because we are just alike in so many ways. As you can see from our photo shoot, we have exactly the same taste in clothes. It was a riot being with her again, and although she just left this evening, I already miss her.

I love you Steph. I had a really great time hanging out with you. Let’s keep making these kinds of wonderful memories! This song is just for you...




More Then You Will Know (by Watermark) The song is now playing.


Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways
you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it's ok to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I've been with God
and that's the way it ought to be, yeah
Chorus:
Cause you've been more than a friend to me
you fight off my enemies
cause you have spoken the truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah


You had faith
when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing
and all the while I've been hoping that I'll
do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me
and that's the way it ought to be, yeah
Chorus:
You have carried me
You have taken upon a burden
that wasn't your own, yeah
may that blessing return to you
A hundredfoldoh oh yeah, a hundredfold
Chorus:
Cause you've been more than a friend to me
you fight off my enemies
cause you have spoken the truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah

More than you'll ever know.


~Stephanie & I~

Susan, It looks like you had such a wonderful visit with your sister! And, you do look alot alike. God knew just what He was doing when He made sisters, didn't He? I have two wonderful younger sisters myself... I don't know what I would do with them!

Have a wonderful weekend!

ooohhhh Susan...Here I thought I was SEEING DOUBLE & yet one more discovery about you...TWINS???? I said...how wonderful to have a sister that is so cute & younger that shares your passions & is such fun to be around...:( sorry that she isn't always around but
it's great you had the chance to make some memories-not too sure about the "mark" you might have left on your area thinking they're seeing double...Yet, good things from the Lord come in double portions...may He double your JOY
today!

Never heard this song but kinda upbeat and MORE THAN I'll EVER KNOW for starting out my day,
"I pray God brings you a brand new song" and "you'll never know..."
what a blessing you have been to me! Thanks for refreshing me and encouraging me with a kind note and hope for SheSpeaks encounter next time around...what a delight
that would be or whenever God chooses..."may the blessing return to you"!!! DOUBLEFOLD...Peggy

What fun! Great song. I'm so glad you had such a super visit with your sister.

Sheryl said...

Oh, how fun is that? I actually had to bring my laptop closer to my eyes to be sure which one was you! Looks like you had a riot! I always wanted a sister, you are so blessed. But you know that.

Have a great weekend,
Sheryl

Sara said...

I always wanted a sister. It looks like you all had a great time!

I also love this song.

Lisa Ann said...

That's a beautiful song. Thanks for sharing it.

valerie said...

Aren't sisters the greatest?!!!

You two do look like twins! Both beautiful women.

I'm thankful that you two were able to spend time together like this. I love my sisters so much.

Love the song too. It's perfect.

Have a blessed weekend.

Love,
Valerie

Susan,

How fun! You could definitely pass as twins. Sisters are the best. I have 2. My poor Dad got stuck with all girls, but I think he really liked it. My parents bought a place at the lake and we've found some of the best places in Texas to go shopping. We haven't done it enough, but all the girls in our family love to shop!

Thanks for visiting and your kind words! Work was crazy this week, plus the wedding was last night and then the stress of all the testing, I guess finally hit.

Feeling better today!

Thanks for continuing to check in!
Cheryl

So happy for you and Stephanie! There is NOTHING like the bond shared by sisters. (I'm so spoiled to have my sister nearby. It's hard to imagine not being able to see here often.) Boy, you DO look like twins! Loved those photos. PERFECT song choice!

Blessings,
Tracy

How much fun was that??? I love that song and I adore Watermark - I think that Christy Nockels' voice... man, there are no words!

And, boy howdy - you do look like twins!!

Dawn said...

I love the pictures of you and your sister. You do look so much alike. There is nothing like spending special times with a sister.

I have always loved that song. Haven't heard it in a while, so it was good to hear it again.

Have a great weekend!

Love you,
Dawn
