|There's nothing like little tiny baby feet hanging out of a nursing "bib".|
"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.

|Morgan is a good sport. Graham isn't walking with a limp.|
|I am particularly thankful for Caelyn's self-control, since Graham tried to use me as a human shield from the hose. I quickly went back inside, where I was working on a couple of fun projects.|
|I could NOT resist this sign! Could you? I mean, if you had a dog. Or two.|
|I think that we lived in Georgia when I bought these hooks. I can't remember where I found them. Potterybarn? Restoration Hardware? Neither of these? Eh. Doesn't matter. I'm glad that they were unearthed after our move.|

|The instructions suggested using red thread for the decorative stitching, but I chose this refreshing blue to match some of the accents in our bathroom.|
|I've had this lining fabric for a couple of years, but I hadn't found a way to use it before now.|
Little things really can make a big difference. I'm so glad that I acted on impulse.
