my girlfriends


i don't know why i thought it was only day 4 or 5..
so imagine my shock when the kids said it was the 11th!

but whether behind and trying to catch up.
or racing and trying to keep it.
the main thing i'm trying is, "let's do this part slow."

some of the in between parts though have had us getting our craft on round here~

one of my favorite things to use are plain ole sticks cheap wood bookcase!
a little spray paint and ta-da.. you have a decoration.

which i stopped just now and counted up in my mind how many places in the house i have sticks and branches as decor..
i came up with nine! ten if you count the ones in the pots of greenery on either side of the front door outside.
and eleven if you count the little pieces of some on the back of the upstairs toilet!
ha. as i said. they're favorites!

when my girlfriends and i went into the forest {as they call it here} to get some greenery..
we found some great branches too Income Tax Hong Kong.
with some of the extras i bunched them all up. hung them upside down and put some snowflakes in.
nothing mind blowingly creative Cable manufacturer...
there was a version of something like this on pinterest my sis in law told me about, but i could never find the pic~
just makes for a nice little filler of something in the corner亞洲知識管理學院.

we are all changed

i guess if i could tell you anything it would be just this..
your pain is not lost on us.
women like me. women all over. fellow moms.
it is more than just another news story. another tragedy.
any one of us could be standing where you are.
we are all affected.
we are all changed.

and so we move a little slower through our days.
hold our kids a little tighter.
react a little stronger to the superficial nothings that suck us in.
look around our broken world with a new soberness.
and see with different eyes, a bit more clearly, what matters in life.

i wish there were answers for such senselessness.
such unnecessary loss.

i don't pretend to understand why the story often unfolds as it does.
but i do know what the final chapter holds~

and there will come a day when Light triumphs over darkness.
when wrongs are made right.
when wounds are forever healed. and no more tears will fall.

when mother's arms are filled once again with the precious little ones they have missed and ached for.

i know i speak for many when i say, we love you connecticut moms.
you are in our prayers and we will not forget.

living in the light

follow God's example in everything you do, because you are His dear children.

live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you and gave Himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins.

And God was pleased, because that sacrifice was like sweet perfume to Him.

let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you.

such sins have no place among God's people.

Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes--these are not for you.

instead, let there be thankfulness to God.

You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God.

for a greedy person is really an idolater who worships the things of this world.

don't be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the terrible anger of God comes upon all those who disobey Him.

don't participate in the things these people do.

for though your heart was once full of darkness, now you are full of light from the Lord, and your behavior should show it!

for this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.

try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.

take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, rebuke and expose them.

it is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret.

but when the light shines on them, it becomes clear how evil these things are.

and where your light shines, it will expose their evil deeds.

this is why it is said, "awake, o sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light."

ephesians 5:1-14



i needed that reminder yesterday, and in my bible study God sent it to me & i wanted to share it.

choice or life

i've been trying to come up with something to say.

tuesday is the 40th anniversary of the decision to legalize abortion in the u.s.

the floodgates were opened, it almost seems hopeless

but it is never hopeless



i am a fan of max lucado, and i borrowed these words from him. they speak of our value to God



*you aren't an accident. you weren't mass-produced. you aren't an assembly line product. you were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth by the Master Craftsman.



*we are His idea. we are His. His face. His eyes. His hands. His touch. we are Him. look deeply into the face of every human being on earth and you will see His

likeness. though some appear to be distant relatives, they are not. God has no cousins, only children.



*you aren't an accident or an incident; you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God.



*in the scheme of nature homo sapiens are not unique. we aren't the only creatures with flesh and hair and blood and hearts. what makes us special is not our

body but the signature of God on our lives. we are His works of art. we are created in His image to do good deeds. we are significant, not because of what we do

too much pain

If nothing else, I gained new resolve to treat those around me with more tenderness and patience, to hug my children more and snap at them less, to tell them every day that I love them, to pray earnestly for them and with them to turn their little consciences toward God cell phone covers.

I remember the words of a friend, once, when I was lamenting the fact that so many children suffer and are hurt and die innocently, and how is it not sometimes hard to believe in an all-good God when there is so much pain? And she said, "In the end, it will be set right. There will be justice computer embroidery factory”.

And it will. Heaven is big enough, eternity is long enough, to heal all the hurts of the lost children; the memories banished like they never happened, burned away by the light of His glory.

There’s already too much pain, so let’s love someone today. We might be keeping them from someday having someone write a sad book about their tragic, horrible life nuskin 如新
