Thankful Thursday

Today Laurie is hosting Thankful Thursday today. She is blogging about "strength for today"

I need strength today!! I need to turn to God for strength.

Today I am thankful for:
* sunny warm weather
* two mile walks with my husband and son
* being able to volunteer at my boys school
* my family

My little guy starts his school vacation starting after school tomorrow. We don't have much planned but I am sure we will do some fun things.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Proverbs 22:2
The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.

I don't know why I was surprised by this, but I was. God always amazes me!

We support two African Orphans. The woman who runs the organization has been there several times and she knows the Pastor who runs the orphanage. His name is Pastor Moses.

My husband occasionally gets a bonus at work and we decided that bonus tithes would go toward the orphans. We tithe faithfully--over 10% so we are comfortable with our decision.

We sent our check off with a note because our little guy wanted to give some of his money, so we explained that to Kristy.

We received a note today from Kristy that just TWO days prior to receiving our check, that Pastor Moses had called and said the city was forcing the Orphanage to get electricity and he needed financial help with that. Then our check arrived!!
Looking back on our check register, we actually wrote the check out the day Pastor Moses called Kristy!!

That certainly can only be God at work with the timing and everything!! It is such a blessing to us--supporting the orphans and hearing a story like this!!

But can you imagine not having electricity?? I had to explain that one to the little guy!!

Praise GOD!!!! I shouldn't be so surprised because GOD is so faithful to answer prayers!!
I've just learned it's not always the answer we want!! But it is GODS answer.

Prayers and Promises week 12

Bethany chooses the verses each week for Prayers and promises. This week she has chosen 1 Chronicles 7:14 for our nation this week. It seems fitting.

1 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Today marks the first day of Spring!! Most of March has already been spring like, but today and tomorrow have been more like the last days of winter here.

I never really count on nice weather in March because we usually get some type of cold weather and snow. Even in to April sometimes.

It has been gorgeous here. The snow is mostly all gone. I still have a few dirty snow piles where the sun doesn't get to much. But it's mostly all gone now.

I am excited to start my garden. This year I am trying some new veggies.

I can't wait to have garden fresh veggies.

Hope you all enjoy your Spring!

Thankful Thursday

Seems as though I took a break from TT last week.

This week Laurie at Women Taking a Stand is hosting. She is blogging about how we are expected, as Christians, to dress. It is very enlightening!! Go read it!

Today was a gorgeous day here for March, but the weather is going to be more March like starting tomorrow.

I was able to spend the whole day with my husband and we did lots of shopping and out to lunch. It was so fun.

Today I am thankful for:
* My hard working husband
* days off spent with him
* sunny warm days in March
* my sweet children
* my little guys school
Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

March Blankets

Three more NICU baby blankets.

The purple is 19inches wide and 19 inches long. It's made with Bernat Soft Boucle. This yarn is similar to Homespun and I thought it would make a nice blanket.

The pink is 16.5w x 16 inches long. It's made with Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Rose Mist. It's just a regular worsted weight yarn-not at all like Homespun but I liked the color.

The blue is 17.5x17 and it's made with Lion Brand Homespun.

The dinosaur cake

Here is the obligatory dinosaur cake for the little guy. He actually ate the cake this time instead of just all the frosting.

He had a good celebration though he was a bit disappointed we didn't have the WHOLE family over again like last year! It's hard to explain why everyone can't come over every year!

But sister was here and that's what is important to the little guy!

Thankful Thursday

Today Laurie is our host. She is blogging about a sprinkler system and it is worth reading. She makes a lot of sense and I agree with her 100% on this!!

Today is my little guys sixth birthday!! I can hardly believe it but it's true. He is very excited to be turning 6.

We are very blessed to have the little guy in our lives. He was such a sweet surprise for us all. We will be celebrating with pizza and a dinosaur decorated cake tonight!!

Today I am thankful for:
*my sweet boy
*my gentle husband
*my lively daughter
*the beautiful sunshiney days we have been having
*the snow--yes the snow!
*God's daily guidance in my life
*old friends remembered and found again!
-- Isaiah 55:8-9
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

A birthday!!

My sweet little baby in the hospital.

My little guy is growing up!!

Today he turns SIX years old!!

We had a small celebration with the grandmas on Sunday and today we will have pizza and cake here at home.

He is very excited to be six years old.
