Quick Update

I know I've been a slacker lately with the blogging. I promise that I will write again very soon though! I just wanted to post a quick update on my foot for today. I went back to the Ortho and everything seems to be progressing well. I got to ditch that awful boot and am back in a brace and tennis shoes.

Only a month or so of therapy and I should be back to my normal, stiletto wearing, self!

Praise Jesus!!!

Exciting New Business

After much prayer and contemplation, I have signed up to be a Demonstrator with Stampin' Up!. Over the last year I have absolutely fallen in love with stamping. Just about every free minute I have is spent elbow deep in ink and paper now. So, if there's a way that I can spend time doing what I love and make a little money at the same time, I don't see a downside!

Please pray that as I dive in head first, God will be glorified in all I do. I'm sure that as I meet new people, He will open the door for me to share his love with others. I'm really excited to see what He has in store up ahead.

Oh, and since this does involve a lot of speaking in front of others, if you wanted to offer up a prayer that I don't throw up, those would also be much appreciated :)

Have a blessed day!

There are moments in life where the greatness of God overwhelms my heart. Times that I see His plan unfolding in front of me as I stand in awe of Him. Tears run down my face as I write this because my heart is too full of joy to hold it in.

One of my dear friends led her daughter to Christ this morning.

So many little steps of obedience, by many people, led up to this moment. So often I don't understand where God is going at all. And there are many times I won't ever understand what His purpose was in a certain situation. I'm getting to the point where that's okay though. I don't have to know what He is doing, all I have to do is be obedient to what He is calling me to do. If one person in this sweet girl's story had chosen not to listen to God's calling, it would have changed everything.

I encourage you to listen for His voice and be obedient to whatever it is He's calling you to do. Even when it seems like something small or random. You never know what a difference it might make.

Rock Star Cutie

Friday night we went to Hailey & Michaels for a night of fun, fellowship, and pretending to be rock stars! Let me tell you friends, as the singer of our rock band I can tell you that the mike is a powerful thing. For those of you that have heard me sing and are wondering how I ended up with the mike, it's not because I have talent you didn't know about.

I am simply that bad at all the other instruments.

Bad singing aside, fun times were had by all! We had a 5th member join us and I included some pictures of the fabulous Hannah channeling her inner rock star. Enjoy!

Mommy, can I get one of these installed in my crib?
Uncle Scotlon helping me get the hang of the drums.
My turn! I think I'm ready for my solo act...
Daddy's playing now so I stole his shoes. I think they might be a little too big right now!
Am I cute or what???
