I have to share this......yesterday I got an e-mail from two cute college girls in NC, Kristy and Halie Sue, and they had been to Forever 21 yesterday and they took a picture of themselves because they thought I might like to know what Harper might look like in 20 years.......
I had a little bunny onesie for Harper to wear today but she wasn't too happy when I was taking her picture so I didn't end up with a good one to put on here. But I thought I would share this picture so I can let you know how Paci Boot Camp is going. It isn't. She has been ALL OVER her hand and her softy/blanky/silky this week. So that's the end of that. I tried a ton of kinds of pacis, tried holding her like I was nursing her, tried putting stuff on the pacis........she just is not interested. She is determined to be just like her mother. Looks like her daddy, acts like her momma. I'm sure my parents could tell you I was pretty strong willed and high maitenance. I guess the good news is that if we decide to have a second child and have a boy - maybe he will end up extra easy like my brother was. :-)
Today - Jesus is my HOPE!
And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:5
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
This David Crowder song is just one of my favorites and I think during Easter week the best thing you can do is "Come and listen to what He's done for you"
This sweet little baby, Bentley, has to have open heart surgery in 6 weeks. Go here and see how you could help the family by buying one of these cute bracelets!!!
The blog world gets smaller every day! Recently this sweet girl, Ashley, e-mailed me and said her grandfather (H.D. McCarty) had been a pastor in my area and chaplain to the Razorbacks for over 40 years and wondered if I might know him. Well, I had to let her know he was MY pastor for almost 10 years and I adored him. I also remember her family visiting many times over those years! She has started painting scripture paintings and her proceeds are going to support her grandfather's ministry - God just put it on her heart. Check out her blog here and her grandfather's ministry here.
I'm going to be updating the prayer requests on the left today so make sure and check all the links when you have time and help pray!
