But before I get on with the pictures I want to share how God really helped me this week.
About a year ago I came across THIS article on CNN.I was really touched by it and shared it on Facebook.Well my friend Josie took this a step further.She decorated some boxes,put notebooks in them and gave me one among other friends. For my very first prayer in the box I asked God to please bless Josie and her husband Doug with a baby in 2011.I really wanted to share motherhood with one of my closest friends. They had baby Ellie just a few weeks ago!!!
Well,shame on me for letting this God Box just sit on my book shelf for most of the year. On Tuesday I was just feeling so overwhelmed. Being pulled in what seemed a hundred directions. I spied the box and grabbed it,reading over the prayers I wrote in the beginning of the year.(In one from January I asked to be cured of my blood clot-Done in February!!) So I wrote a new prayer. I asked for strength to just get something done in this house. To have order and peace in our home. The next day I just had the most incredible burst of energy! I was organizing,cleaning,pitching stuff. Through all of that I even managed to bake my Noah a cake for this 10th birthday! I felt amazing.I stopped for a minute and just thought 'Wow,God!This is from you! Thanks!!!!!' Praying for this every day. I want to be the best wife,mom and homemaker that the Lord wants me to be.
Ok, on with the pics:
