The Three Kings…the journey of obedience

I stayed up late last night creating a little outfit my little man to wear in the live nativity at school. Next Friday he will be one of the three kings–he gets to be the Ethiopian king! I had 2 choices in creating a turban. Either I could watch this you tube video: (nice, […]

God has us where we are for a purpose…

We received out new waitlist number last week in perfect timing (from 28 to 26). I had been discouraged earlier in the week realizing that I was standing in a line—what felt like a long line—while there were and are approximately 145,000,000 orphans in the world. To me, the line waiting didn’t (and doesn’t) always […]

Yay! Steal away Emily!!! Isn't that the MOST fun! We bought numbers to go on the stairs of our basement too. So fun. I love hearing little voices count the numbers as they go up:). So sweet! Those are 4" in height. Just FYI as you scout out the etsy number sellers. I may go find the girl I bought from and I can send ya the link if you need it!

love the steps!

For starters…you can get an AMEN. God doesn't show up a day late. He is more concerned about timing than TIME. His timing is perfect. Your child isn't ready yet and so the wait on the list is until the child He has chosen for your family is ready.

And…I think I may just need those numbers. I LOVE THEM. Cute !!!

Kimberly - December 7, 2009 - 3:37 pm

AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you ready your e-mail??? I can't wait to hear what beautiful words pour forth….we could just use the above post!!!! LOVE it and LOVE the numbers!!!!

Jenny - December 7, 2009 - 5:36 pm

Oh man… you make me want stairs now!! those numbers are just the CUTEST things ever!

You are such a crafty mom. You better still be blogging in a few years when I can use some mommy crafts 🙂

I love coming over to visit you on your blog…now if I can make it out to see you. Actually, I was out your way Saturday. I went to a wedding off of Canton Street. I wish I had some time to stop by. I thought of you while driving through the cute square.
I love your photos and your recipe looks yummy. I can't wait to try it!
Blessing to your precious family!
