Maddie and I spent the morning outside, me reading my Bible and the story of Moses, and Maddie riding her bike, pretending that she and Minnie Mouse were making ice cream, pizza, and popcorn for their new movie. It was precious.
I’m currently captivated by this picture. I love the vintage feel. I really do think I was born in the wrong decade :) I am so in love with this dress! I think I may buy a pattern and make this dress with my new sewing machine. It’s ambitious…I know. But I’m confident! I think it may be time to go shopping for fabric and patterns!! :) :)
So I’ve been addicted to “Alchemy” on my Droid for weeks. For those of you who don’t know, you start with earth, wind, air and water and combine them to make all 360 different elements. I was stuck on 359 elements, only needing one more element! So…I gave in. I looked up a cheat sheet to see what I was missing (a coffin). I thought that when I finally found all 360 elements, my phone would sing or at least say congratulations. But alas, this was not the case. Nothing happened. It waited for me to continue mixing elements. Oh well. I have a feeling of accomplishment for the day; thus, I’m off to bed.
I am constantly overwhelmed with God’s faithfulness. Sometimes life gets piled up and stressful, and I feel like I’ll crumble from the weight of it all. But God never ceases to answer our prayers and provide for our needs. I am so incredibly thankful for a husband who never ceases to pray for me, us, or our family, and who prays and reads the Bible with me daily. He is so faithful and continually let’s go and allows God to take over. These past few months, I have been privileged enough to see my husband’s faith grow, and see God continually teach him how to spiritually lead our family. At the same time, God is teaching me how to be a supportive and submissive wife. Though challenging, I am thankful for our challenges, obstacles, and hardships, because when we see God at work on our lives, our journey is that much sweeter.
