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

HOPE lets us hear the music of tomorrow; FAITH lets us dance to it today.

Thought you would like that--your last thankful item reminded me of it :).

Oh my gracious! Adele standing! Woozy took 4 steps on her own this afternoon, and never even realized it! She isn't standing by herself yet, but soon.

I'm in love with that little polka-dotted jacket. Think it would fit me?

P.S. and besides, I might look a little funny walking around with teddy bear ears poking out my head. :-/
