"LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance." Psalm 16:5-6

Ours is a story of what God can do with two silly teens, starting off with no clue;

And baby thrown in, just for good measure. We didn’t know that God would increase our treasure

With four added on in rapid succession, filling our lives with joy and hard lessons.

We’ve had our share of valleys and hills, of times of abundance, and unpaid bills.

We once thought success would bring us bliss; we’ve learned that loss does a better job of this,

As we lean on our Savior, Who always delivers, regardless of the size of our quiver.

Although we’re grateful for the times of ease, the hard times are useful for learning to please

Our Heavenly Father, learning to walk in His Truth, of which we often talk.

May the Lord help us humbly and faithfully serve, staying mindful that the next generation observes.

Prop up your feet and grab a cup of coffee or tea while I open up

The book of my life, without further ado, and narrate the musings of my heart to you.

I've Sewn, Therefore I'll Tell

I have needed to sew lately. Needed.
But I've had difficulty finding time.
I did manage to squeeze in one other project recently for Liesl's challenge.

Fortunately, Amy and Sarah have motivated me to make another project before the end of the month - Amy, because she now only does Sew & Tell once each month; and Sarah, because she's having a baby.

It's so nice to have another reason to make a nursing cover. Sarah's little boy is due next month, so I wanted to be sure to get this cover made for her before we really become entrenched in our moving preparation.

I wanted to try something new for the pocket. I think this took care of it.

My life is so different now that I know how to use my embroidery machine. It's almost as amazing as my Vita-Mix.

Many thanks to Caelyn for modeling the features for me. One day I hope to make one of these for her.  Of course, she'll have to get married first; but I digress.


  1. Beautiful & practical! Love the fabric you chose and the embroidery is awesome!! I wonder if my machine does any of that!? lol!

  2. that is one times beautiful cover. the pocket is perfect too ;-)
