What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Starting Fresh

Hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day!! I spent yesterday celebrating this wonderful role of motherhood that the Lord has graciously put me in and tomorrow I am going to be celebrating ME-and the years that the Lord has graciously gifted me.

25 tomorrow.

I'll be sad-not because I am getting 'old' (HA!) but because , no longer will I be my most favorite number. Ah well. If THAT is all the sadness I ever face...

Corynn and Papa went on an excursion Saturday to pick up a mower (and BOY is IT a monster!) that we have just purchased from some friends of ours. What they DIDN'T tell me, was they had top-secret plans too. I woke up yesterday morning, to this lovely hanging basket right in the kitchen. LOVELY.

It has taken a place of honor on our patio.

Due to some recent horribly tragic happenings to a
family that I don't even know personally, my weekend shed its fair share of tears. I have been made even MORE grateful for my children and my life, and again I am reminded that you can NEVER fully appreciate the gifts you have been given until you are fearful you will lose them. If you think of it, please pray for this family-who lost their precious baby boy on Mother's Day. The Mother who is physically broken and no doubt, mentally as well (she was in a hospital several hours away when her baby passed away) and for the Father-who must struggle to be strong in the midst of loss. Pray that they find comfort and solace in the our Heavenly Father and that they are drawn closer to Him in this horribly sad time.
