Thank you girls SO much for the kitchen feature! I told Vanessa it was a long road and a long time eating pizzas for dinner! The good Lord certainly worked on us during that time, too!! We are so thankful to be done and not eating out of a box anymore! This is a very sweet reward for all that work! Congratulations on your features, I have seen at other sites! The fall display is beautiful! I need to find some cute wooden boxes and decorate the rest of my house!! Have a beautiful weekend!! Christie
Hi there again! Well I was so excited with my first entry that I had to add the rest ot the story! lol Hope you dont mind:) Im just havin a blast over here!
Hey! I am writing some devotions for my children to address some of the difficult things they will face. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, so decided to write my own. Digging in God’s word has been so amazing…seeking His truths on some difficult topics! “What Your Little Eyes See” addresses the things they may see at an early age (that we don’t want them to see!) Shockingly, the average age now is EIGHT. I am trying to pre-empt what the world will tell them, by preparing them with the Truth. Please do not hesitate to delete if this is something you don’t want linked. I am doing a series and this Sunday will be about what does it mean to fear God. I wasn’t sure I knew enough to teach my kids, so went diggin’! Thank you girls for hosting and giving the rest of us a place to share! Christie
At The Picket Fence says
