On Friday’s I link up with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story to share Five Faves that were blessings in my week.
1. I’ve been trying to get up before my kids so I have time to shower and sit with a cup of coffee and my bible each morning. It really grounds me to start my days this way. I’m big into sleeping. A lot. And my son is an early riser. So this has actually been a huge challenge but totally worth it.
A bonus was seeing the sun rise slowly in the morning, illuminating the mist that settles on the field behind our house.
(Not a great picture… I’m really not a photographer… but it was stunning in person. )
2. I met some great ladies at a bible study I’ve recently started attending. Really awesome group of women. And two of them knit!
3. This boy’s quirky smiles. They melt my heart.
4. My family. We’re an unusual one. We get lots of strange looks out in public and we are loud and crazy at home. But we’re so full of love.
5. A very PINK birthday!
This big, 8 year old girl is my biggest fave this week!!! She’s got such a huge, tender heart. She loves to help people and babies adore her beautiful smiles. She’s grown up so much in the last few years and I’m so proud of what an amazing girl she is growing into. I pray that the Lord will continue to mold her and shape her into a godly young woman. She truly lives up to the meaning of her name: Life by Grace.
Can you believe how beautiful she is?? Some days I just stop in awe and tell her how gorgeous she is and she just rolls her eyes at me. But I can’t help it- she’s lovely! 🙂
Off to celebrate everything in high PINK style! 🙂
Blessings on your weeks!
