366-59 & 60

My boy participated in Awana games over the weekend.  His team came in 2nd out of 14 teams!  It was a lot of fun and my boy enjoyed himself so much.  I am so thankful that he is plugging in.  God is so good!  Jesus fills in any gaps and worries this mama has.  Praise Him!

Matthew 6:25-27  “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5

P52- Week 8 Cabin Fever Plus 366-56 & 57

This was a hard one for me.  We live in a very sunny place and usually can go outside year long.  We did go to our "cabin" for the President's Day weekend.  These pictures were taken from the car on the way down the mountain.

These were taken over the weekend....

We went skiing and brought some friends.  We drove through our old town and picked up one of girlie girl's friends.  This girl is such a sweet friend to my girlie girl.  We have been blessed to have her and her family in our lives.  They used to live right around the corner from us....but now we live a state apart.  Oh, how we miss them!

We usually go skiing for our anniversary and we always take the kids.  That is just what we do. Except last year when we actually flew out of state to look for our new house.  Boy, my life can change so fast!  Who knew?
The last picture is of the cabin window in the morning.  The window was iced up.  I thought it was pretty...

  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a

1000 Gifts Plus 366-35 & 36

What a weekend! God is so Good and Worthy to be Praised! I was blessed enough to be able to attend a "Mom Heart Conference" put on by Sally Clarkson and her family.  It was such a wonderful time of fellowship with other moms and some of my sweet friends.  The Lord has used Sally and her husband Clay to minister to moms and families for about 25 years.  She has written books about capturing your children's hearts and minds for Christ.  She also has home schooled all four children and just finished up her last one this past year.  She has done a beautiful job and now gets to enjoy the fruit of her labor.  What an encouragement! She speaks about taking every opportunity you have with your children and to use it to mold and shape their hearts.  To not take for granted the time you have with them.
I am so encouraged by this woman! She is wise and gifted in teaching.  Please, moms, if you have a opportunity to attend one of her conferences, do it! You will not be disappointed!

Counting my gifts.....

281.  Fellowship with sweet friends...

282.  Sally Clarkson's teaching

283.  Nuggets the Lord showed me over the weekend...

P52 Week 5 Plus 366-34

This is for the P52 Challenge week 5.  The challenge was to capture a shadow.  Well, I waited until the sun was almost done when I remembered the challenge.  So, we decided to capture the shadow of my girls hands inside the jacuzzi.

I will give thanks to you Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1

Many Blessings,


My girl takes a bunch of pictures... ALL THE TIME!  I love that she loves picking up the camera...
I thought about letting her display her pictures on her own blog, but I thought we better wait.  I sometimes can freak myself out about the internet.  So, for now, I will let her post on my blog.  Especially when I am a couple of days behind on my daily 366 pics.
These are her pictures.  The first one is of her chalk for art class. The second she got a sun flare (I think)! And the third is a great picture with shadows.  Tomorrow is actually the day I am to post shadows for the P52 project but this is her picture.  She did a great job.

Many Blessings,

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. 
Psalm 37:4  

She is one of my heart's desire and I am so delighted in the Lord : )
