Hope you're enjoying the new updates to the blog.
I also hope this hump day found you well and anticipating the holiday weekend!
I won't jump to far into our weekend plans. I'm leaving that to FamilyFridays.
However I can delve into the basics.
Truth be told I look forward to Labor Day Weekend (almost) more than Christmas. My husband's family reunion has been on this weekend for years. I love the tradition of it but more importantly I absolutely adore his relatives. I consider myself extremely blessed and honored in the "in-law" department.
This year is a little different, due to changes in our careers, for the first time in several years (6 to be exact) - we will be attending the event from start to finish...actually we'll be with his family from Saturday to Monday. You'll understand the rarity of this on Friday.
That's all the delving on that..
Other than Labor Day being an annual event our family really looks forward to - I also have really found the name of it comical. This year more so.
A load of my friends (like a barrel and a heap) are finding out their pregnant, are pregnant and others very ready to have their little chickens. Tis the season.
Baby celebrating and showers...
I love giving gifts. However, its important to me that I give them things made from the heart.
It's also very important that when they do come into this world...this girl gives them some serious smooches.
Lots and lots and lots of smooches.
So here's to you - all of you expecting. I'm excited for your babes to come into this world - I'm praying they love the Lord, that He gives you specific direction and encouragement to raise world changers..
...AND that they get all kinds of loving from this lady. You kind of don't have a choice.
Know that I'm praying for all of you - because there's a lot of you - with all different kinds of needs. And I consider it an honor to intentionally advocate in prayer for you, your babes (yes I mean babes) and your pregnancy and delivery. It's the greatest and most eternal gift I can offer.
and I'm honored.
Prayer & of course real tangible gifts.
My "go-to gift" is Aden and Anais muslin blankets - with funky designs on them - from my "go-to baby boutique" - Bella Baby.
My "go to hand-made item" is 0-3 month plain white onesies - with my personalized design on it - using t-shirt paint and a wide bristle paint brush & card stock and scissors to create the stencil. God gifted me with the nack of eyeballing designs - so I go with it.
So here's the damage.
WonderWednesdays...because I'm always asked (in so many words) what's up my sleeve...creatively speaking. With that Wednesdays will be about my current craft projects.
So with babies on the way...
This is my current craft interest.
Babies. Children. Such a beautiful blessing...
Such a weighty honor...
The truest of miracles...
An example of the very Kingdom of Heaven...
"One day some parents brought their little children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But when the disciples saw this, they scolded the parents for bothering him. Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Luke 18:15-17
