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

Lists of 30: AMEN to THAT!

I really hope this doesn't sound creepy or stalkerish...but I think I love you. (I must! We ARE sisters in Christ you know...)

I'm glad I wasn't drinking coffee because I might have spit it out all over my screen from laughing. Thanks for sharing, you've made my morning! :)

For about a minute, I wondered if I knew you well enough to hack you, and "surprise" you with a big ol' birthday post. But then, my senses returned and I decided friends don't hack friends, no matter how good their intentions are : ) Any way:
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday Dear-inspiring-amazingly-talented-picture-of-a-Godly-woman-and-gorgeous
Happy Birthday to YOU!

Upon reflection, and so as not to freak you out, I meant "well enough to hack" as I wonder if I could figure out HOW to get into your blog. I'm not that smart thank goodness, and no, I don't know how.

aeolian~ On the contrary- I just *LOVE* to read comments like that! ;-)

Bonnie~ Hacking ME to bits is not nearly as nice as hacking my blog. So glad you qualified! ;-)

I bet you probably could figure out how, since I am not at all complicated when it comes to these things. Mainly, because, well, if it is too complicated then I FORGET it. ha! Oh well. This is one of the things I have learned to accept about myself.

Thank you bunches. I think that your song is the best redition of the birthday song I have ever heard, though I wish I lived up to it! :-)

The last day of my twenties....and I have a date tonight! What a way to go! :-)
