Pouring out thanks...


Nov. 3rd :

   For Jack's appointment with a new doctor that was a total answer to prayer and that gives me hope for getting to the bottom of his allergy/skin issues.

  Craft night...which included a bunch of wonderful, creative ladies, busy with a fun Advent project, yummy treats,  yards and yards of burlap and laughter + chatting until well past midnight.

  A vase full of colorful leaves.

  For a little shop update.

  Sweet baby flutters.



Nov. 4th :

  For a sweet Bible study time this morning. I think our little group is starting to feel a little more brave and safe to take things to a deeper, more honest + real level. For a lot of conviction on my part as we read through the chapter in our book: Profile of the Lukewarm.  I wanted to jot down some quotes here but after I'd scoured the house for it, I realized that David must have taken it to work with him, which makes me so happy and thankful to know he's been reading it on his own.

  Delighted in these three beautiful little girlies and their matching pig-tail braids...another one of this sweet + darling friend's, 1000 + 1 talents.



The silly telling of a bedtime story by Anniebelle's to her Daddy that started  like this..." Once upon a time Daddy there was a rabbit who had a tail made out of cheese. And who walked on his ears. And had two bellybuttons for eyes..."at which point they both dissolve into silly, silly giggles.  




  Thankful especially for this day because it was on this very day 29 years ago that this most amazing + beautiful lady was born.  Struggled all day understanding why God would allow her birthday to be turned upside down by something really scary happening to her just as amazing + beautiful little daughter. All day + evening I worried and ached for them and for other dear friends who are hurting...and then came David's gentle encourage-ment to " not doubt God ...to just trust that He knows  and allows what's best for us and those we love so dearly. And by last night the prayers  of so many were already being sweetly answered, worries stilled and from the sound of things, it has been a really happy, normal, celebrating + making up for lost time, sort of day for them.

I am loving all these grateful posts! I should totally hop on board, but now I am 6 days behind...

So wish I could be a part of craft nights and bible studies with you guys. I really need a group of girlies like you here. Sigh.
