Easter Fun

And what a Glorious Morning it was..we got up nice and early as the sun was coming over the clouds, a reminder for the day that 'He is Risen'!

It was a some what stressful morning seeing as we had to be at church early for helping serving for me, Singing practice for Aaron and then church service! So worth it it was!

All ready to go in their Easter boy apparently not wanting to be up this early!

Our Family..
 (and yes i know i don't match but trying to find anything that looks cute into my 33 week of pregnancy is tricky ;)

My Loves <3

Hope everyone had a Blessed Easter!

 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day. Luke 24:6,7

Rain Drops

Well today was probably a more or less typical April day..wet and not very warm! It was the kind of day that made me want to dress comfy (also because I'm pregnant) and work on a sewing project.

And take pictures of our most useful things on rainy days...

And some awesome words and great reminder to us all..

We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if the thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know the pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise

Happy Wednesday!

I Choose Praise..

Well This week has been a busy one, and has varied in weather & tempature quite a bit! Monday started with the normal cleaning and laundry and ended with doctors and grocery shopping with the hubby! Tuesday and wednesday were spent enjoying the some what warmer weather with with a friend to earn some extra money, visiting a new Baby & Mom in the hospital and ending the day with Zumba!
I wasn't good about getting alot of pictures this week but here is a cute one i took of the girls enjoying a book!

Iris & Tyra Reading

Today is also April 1st and no joke it's snowing piles out!
What was starting to look like spring  might show it's self has turned into this..

But despite what we might want or think should be God knows best and theres some reason (that we may not know) for this snow to be here! So instead of worry about why the white stuff is making an appearence, i choose to Praise God for this day and enjoy it with my kids and be thankful that we have this day on earth! And to look on the bright side and remember that it's here today but won't take long to melt from here..spring must come at some point!

So we started the morning making yummy blueberry muffins..i haven't had the time or want to bake in a long time so these hit the spot just right!

Enjoy your day and time today!
