A heart of Worship

Wow. This morning I am overcome with so many emotions.  I got some rather difficult news to digest yesterday.  Should have been a day of celebrating and rejoicing with family and it turned into some devastating news. It is a hard blow to take.  I went to bed alone, didn't have the heart to be with everyone.  I woke up alone, not really "feeling" worship time or the Father or the desire to go to church and worship Him.  And yet, I sit here alone in the quiet listening to the music softly play here.  Ann Voskamp has a way with words and a way that brings me to my knees and flat on my face before the Father.  Reading her blog, she is so inspiring with how she turns us all back to the Living Word for guidance, direction, comfort, stress, anger, everything.

So as I have sat here with tear filled eyes for the last 30 minutes, I am now broken and ashamed that I had even a fleeting thought of skipping church to wallow in my self pity.  I will get up from the computer in a few short minutes and get myself and my family ready for church and we will go worship the Father and praise Him and Thank Him.....even when the times are difficult and seem unbearable to do so. He loves us.  He will protect us.  We may not think so but He will do what's best for us all in His time.

I pray you have a blessed day and worship the Father wherever you are.

Most Favorite Project of 2012

So I've almost missed the deadline but I am linking up with Paper Issues to showcase my favorite project from last year. Yes I already showed my top 10 for 2012 but my MOST favorite would have to be......



I used a Heidi Swapp Mistable file folder and sprayed it up with my favorite colors! LOVE the bright colors it has and this picture of Savannah and her teacher is adorable! I ADORE our teacher.......:) She is one of my FAVS! :D Simple but LOVE it....I also love that I was able to print off the sheet of favorites for Savannah to fill out....(it was from a challenge over at Noel at the back to school crop). So This folder holds my favorite papers or most unique from girls first grade year and right on the front is her cute lil handwriting! :D 

Have a GREAT weekend! We are celebrating the little man turning 3!

My mom and I started playing scrabble on a daily basis when she was here.....now we have moved to the scrabble app and still play every day! 

I got to go to an all day crop this past weekend! I met some ladies that live in my area that do this ALL. THE. TIME. How did I not know about them? They are all so amazing!!! I have decided that I just love them and they are all soooo sweet!!!! Thank you girls for including me in your group, I feel so blessed. 

Happy mail! ('Nough said.)

We had a snow and ice storm hit in the middle of the day in the middle of the week and it was a MESS. But pretty :) 

WE ARE ON IT! Back to basics, back to budgeting, back to our goals and back to changing our lives! 

Have a great day!
