A New Journey

God has had me on quite a journey recently. A new friend shared this with me and I love the picture it puts in my head. I hope you enjoy.
This is what I see, isn't she cute? Found her here.

Toddler Princess
by Catherine Mosier

I am your toddler princess
running to your court
with abandon and assurance
that you love me with all your heart.
You stretch your arms to catch me
swing me ‘round with great delight.
We gaze at one another,
in wonder at our mutual sight.

I am your toddler princess.
We laugh in fields of green.
You watch over me protectively
and murmur healing to wounds unseen.
You place me on your shoulders,
and I exult in my new height.
If I run too far You catch me
And my squirming hand is held tight.

I am your toddler princess,
dancing before you in new clothes
that your purchased at great peril
but gave to me for my repose.
With great joy I recompense you
with kisses and with love
that you receive as though I
brought you the stars from up above.

I am your toddler princess.
You teach me of your secret ways
walking through majestic gardens
in the early morning haze.
You show me hidden pathways
and the beautiful displays
of bird songs and of perfumes
the whole world brings my Daddy praise.

I am your toddler princess.
Someday I will wear a crown.
This curly head will rule with you
in queenly wise renown.
You sing to me sweet lullabies
of blessing and destiny
and tuck me into knowing that
my Daddy is King of kings.

Today is my husband's 50th birthday.


How did this happen? How am I married to a 50 year old?

I remember:

~getting married really young
~having a beautiful baby girl
~watching her grow for a couple of years
~having another beautiful baby girl
~watching them both grow up
~go to school
~move out
~first baby girl got married
~second baby girl will all too soon

Oh yeah, now I remember...while they were growing up, we did too. And I've enjoyed every minute of it.

Thank you God for our beautiful life together, I can't wait to see the next 50!!

Happy Birthday Jim!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Colossians 3:14
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

1 John 3:16
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.

1 John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Pretty much says it all. Happy Valentine's Day! You are loved.

Getting Juicy

So I've begun a new project for someone very dear to me. I am taking pictures, but since it's a gift, I won't post them until next week. I know this is a teaser, but I'm excited to be working on a creative project again and I couldn't wait to tell you.

Here's what I can say:

Thank you Dwayne for the source.
Thank you Andrea for the list.
Thank you God for the creativity. (and maybe the snow day to get some extended work done)
Thank you Hobby Lobby for everything else.


Sneak Peek...kind of, sort of...
