Happy Saturday...

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We got more fluffy white snow here in TN so the kids were out of school again yesterday. I keep telling myself then need to have year round school
so they don't have to make up for all the winter snow. I made this card for the Sister Hood Scraps card challenge. I had to use chipboard, so I had these silver chipboard starts that I used.
Hope your weekend is Blessed looking forward to Church in the A.M. as Kim and I be starting on Living God's Wod.
1.8.11~Whenever you are disappointed because your needs are not being met, talk to yourself and say, "My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him" (psalm 62.5). Then tell God about all your needs and everything that is in your heart. Don't worry, he won't be surprised or shocked. He already knows. He is just waiting to hear it from you.~
1.9.11Lord, i realize I don't know how to pray as I need to, not as often as I want to, but I invite You, Holy Spirit, to pray through me. Help me in my weakness. Teach me the things I don't know about You.~
My grace is sufficent for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12.9

1.7.11~If You're like me, you don't want to live the kind of life where you are barely hanging on, You don't want to merely eke out an existence, find a way to cope with your misery, or just get by. You want to have the abundant life Jesus spoke of when he said. "I have come that thay may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).~

Li'l Ham

Another layout of Chace being the Little Ham that he is. On this day he just kept smiling and saying Cheese...

1.6.11~Lord I invite Your Holy Spirit to fill me afresh right now. Just as spring is constantly being renewed with fresh water so that it stays puer, I ask You to renew me in that same way today~

Good Morning!
DH is back to work and the kids are back to school. Little man and I have the house all to ourselves. over the weekend I managed to do 8 layouts,1 card and a planner some are for the design teams so I can't reveal them all yet. I was on a roll and didn't want to stop. I am really trying very hard to use up my old stuff. I do however get the Scraproom kit each month so I used alot of that too. Ayla made it home fine from school yesterday after her appt. she was whipped she does not like her crutches but has 4 more weeks left to go using them. She hates having to depend on someone to carry her books. She told me a senior boy helped her yesterday to class of course the mom in me said ooooo, a senior. she sais mom don't get any ideas he is so not my type just wanted to give me his medical advice on my knee and wanted to get out of class early. LOL.... The layout above is a rare moment for Chace and Kim. Chace is always teasing daddy about sitting in his lap but this day he waanted to keep getting his picture taken with daddy. Sorry about the glare.

1.5.11 ~ We will never be happy until we make God the source of our fulfillment and the answer to our longings. He is the only one who should have power over out souls.~

Ps. Happy Birthday Mom... I love you!

Sweetie and a Blessing.

First off I want to thank God up above for looking out for Ayla. She went on her post-op appointment yesterday and they were a bit worried because she has been having lots of throbbing burning sensation. They thought she may have had a blood clot in her leg so Kim had to take her to the hospital for a test. We prayed and prayed that God would look after her and she would be free of the clots. After taking the test it was negative. He is so wonderful and praise him for being with her. Below you will see a layout I did of Ayla. I do not get many photos of her now that she is a teeny bopper. I took it in the car on Halloween day we were on our way to Church for our fall festival I hope you enjoy!

1.4.11 ~Every woman has needs. But Many of us are guilty of looking to other people to meeth them-especially the men in our lives. Too often we expect them to meet the needs that only God can fill. Then we are disappointed when they can't. We expect too much from them when our expectations should be in God.

Ps. I love Nikki Silvis

1.3.11: Lord you have said in Your Word that whoever believes in You
will have rivers of living water flowing from their heart (John7:38). I
believe in You, and I long for Your living water to flow in and through me today and every day that I am alive.

Just one more day...

This picture was taken a few weeks ago when we got our big snow fall.

I am so excited that the kids go back to school tomorrow.
I can finally get back to normal. however, Ayla does have her follow-up
appt. from her Knee in Knoxville. It has been a rough week and a half
for her with having to be on crutches. Ashley and Jack will be so happy
when she can walk again. They along with myself have been catering
to her constantly.
1.2.11: When we pray about every aspect of out life, it will lift our eyes
from temporal to the eternal and show us what is really important.
This kind of praying will give us the ability to distinguish the truth from a lie.
It will strengthen our faith and encourage us to become the women of God
we long to be and believe we can be. Who among us doesn't need that?
