Crafting With Purpose and Priorities

There are so many things I love to do.  The Lord has created me to be a person who loves to create!  It’s how I’m wired.  My problem has been that there are so many things I love to do, I want to do them ALL – but know that is just not possible.  So I struggle with finding what it is the Lord wants me to focus on. I know that He wants me to keep Him first in {Read More}

4 Months Old – and a Little Rambling

Life has been extra fun for the past 4 months. I’ve barely blogged since Felicity’s birth. I’m enjoying her SO crazy much! Every time I think about her and how thankful I am for her, an insane amount of joy fills my heart. I can’t even begin to put my thoughts and emotions into words that do them justice. So instead, I enjoy & soak up each sweet, wonderful moment. It still feels like she was just born- but at {Read More}

Weekly Wrap-Up

It’s been another busy, but fun week around here.  We completed 5 days of school this week!  We normally do 4-day school weeks, but are trying to do a little catch up from being sick…so we will have 5-day weeks for a little while.

Weekly Wrap-Up ~ 1/21/11

Ok so hmmmmm.  This week.  Well,  it started out with sickness – once again!  Zoe threw up Sunday morning, and was feeling better after a couple of days.  Never had a fever or anything else…wierd.  Then I started a fever on Mon night (w/ no other symptoms), and had it all day Tuesday, but was better by Wednesday.  So, at least our sicknesses were short-lived….whatever they were! 🙂 Sunday we had a baby shower for my sister at my house…on {Read More}

The Mundane

Love this quote from Carolyn Mahaney on the Girl Talk Blog.  Dear homemaker, wife, mother…May it encourage your heart today, as it does mine: I got out of bed each morning so that I could do everything I did the day before. I washed the dishes so they could be dirtied again. I ironed the clothes so they could be worn and wrinkled again I wiped noses so they could run again. I picked up toys so they could be {Read More}

Get Blogging

I either need to start blogging on this blog or give it up for good!!  And I am not ready to give it up, so I guess I better start blogging!!  🙂 So,  September.  Wow, what do I even say.  It was a wild month.  I think if I even began to list all that I did in September,  I would give you – and myself – a headache.  So I will just say, it was busy…extremely busy… the end. {Read More}

Oh My Poor, Neglected Blog!

    Wow!  I have technically been on my “bloggy break” for about 2 1/2 months now, with a couple of quick pop-ins here and there.  That is just crazy, and definitlely the longest break I have ever taken from blogging since I began blogging 2 1/2 years ago!    As you probably already know, my reasons for the break were that we were moving, were busy with the holidays, and I was exhausted from pregnancy, all at the same time!   {Read More}

God is SO GOOD!

   I believe I mentioned in my last post that the nurse was unable to tell if our baby was a boy or girl.  This has been really hard for me to deal with.  I wanted to know so badly so I could name our baby.  This is so important to me because the baby is so real to me…my child, just the same as my other children, only this one died in my womb.  Not being able to give the baby {Read More}
