Go give!!!

Our good friends the Elders are the new family on Give1Save1!!!

Go watch their adorable video about being gloriously ruined while waiting for the adoption of their precious Camp.

Give1Save1 is all about not 1 person being able to donate $30,000 but what if 30,000 people each gave $1???????!!!!!!!!

Here's to being apart of their precious story! 
Love you Elders!!!

Kaitlyn the Actress

I have finally been playing with the new camera Daddy bought us for Christmas. 
I don't have to search too far to find willing subjects.
The many face of Kaitlyn Nicole...could she be an actress one day??


You are...

"You are the cheese to my macaroni"
"You are the horizon to my sky."
"You are the smile to my face."
"You are the icing on my cupcake."
 What would I do without these lights in my life? Happy Monday!

Celebrating You...

I am captivated by "The Resolution for Women" by Priscilla Shirer. Have you read this book?

I read chapter 1 a total of 4 times before I could move on to chapter 2. It rocked my world!!

What a great read in the wake of new beginnings. Here's to celebrating You! The You He has set apart, the You He chose. (Jeremiah 1:5)

"Rather than seeking to impress and outperform others, and rather than feeling ashamed by what you don't have and can't do, relish the opportunity to stand as a living, walking, eating, breathing example of what God's grace can do with a woman He has set apart, weaknesses and all, to be a sacred vessel in His service. You are a purposeful place setting. A worthy masterpiece worth celebrating"

But what if....

Just what if....I was all those things I dream of and more. What if my marriage knocked my socks off, I made a difference in the lives around me, I breathed life into the little hearts in my care.

What if joy drenched every word-every thought-every action, my house was a retreat & rescue to my family...that I was the heart of our home, that-like the Proverbs 31 Woman-I laughed at the things to come instead of stress & gripe & cause tension at every hiccup.

What if I saw things from His perspective, viewed every encounter as an opportunity to give Him glory, thought less of myself and more of Him...more of His heart...more of His own...just what if...for 2012......

I'm restless...

I feel like I'm in a fog, I can't think straight, I'm tired, I'm grumpy....all things you wanted to hear about me today, huh??

I would love to do a recap of 2011 and set goals for 2012, but for some reason I just can't think. Ever have one of those

Not sure what God is doing or where this is going. Not sure when my thoughts will clear and I'll feel the freedom to write again. I am just starting to realize that Lord, I am restless until I rest in You.

Taking a break from blogland as I chase after His heart.... Happy 2012 and the "abundantly more" He has for you...and me! :) 

Ephesians 3:20
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"
