|It's not the most beautiful item, but it worked just fine for Morgan.|
"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.

|This is one of my favorites. I had a greeting card made from it.|

|Oh. Yes. The #1: CHҦ GIÒ VIÊT NAM|
|Always working. I don't mind. Everybody wins.|
|This one doesn't have a spot on the menu, as I customized it with basil, veggies, and chicken with curry & coconut milk. The staff at Huynh are so pleasant and accommodating.|
|They had a bit of trouble re-assembling the stove after cleaning it.|

|I almost have to laugh at this. I mean, we drove all 1360 miles from there to here - as did my parents on their recent visit - so we know that the road IS, in fact, VERY long. But the point is still nice.|
|I've been wanting an excuse to use this fabric. I've had it for a while, and I just love it. I'm not sure why I haven't thought of a use for it before now. I hope that Mom W. will like it!|

|Getting ready to take on the farmers' market|
she brings her food from afar."
|I suspect that these mango "pops" are at the heart of my children's enthusiasm about accompanying me at the market.|
If the mango "pops" aren't the lure for my children on these trips, I'm sure that the Mexican bakery across the street certainly is. One of their favorite Texas treats is the kolache. My friend, Sue, makes amazing homemade kolaches; but since we wouldn't just call her up and demand them on impulse, my family likes to get them from this bakery, filled with meat and cheese.
|Gabriela patiently awaited her turn, tools in hand.|
|A beautiful mess. I should have kept track of how long it took us to put it all away.|
|Deal of the Day: Three cases of mangos for $18.|
|Gabriela is proud of her fruit display.|
Now that bulk shopping is done, it's time to make my regular grocery list. A mother's work is never done - and what joyful labor it is!
