Thinking about Birth

Whoa! Wait a minute. This is a home decor blog, right? Then why the heck am I talking about birth?!

Well, I'll tell ya 3 good reasons...

  1. I realized this week that I only have one trimester left to live in Austin. When you put it in pregnancy terms, you quickly realize how f.a.s.t. that's going to happen. Yikes!
  2. My cousin just went past her due date so we've all been anxiously awaiting "the call." (btw, he was born this morning!)
  3. Last, but certainly not least, Reed was baptized last weekend!!

John praying with Reed. I love, love, love the emotion shown in this picture. If you look real close you can see a tiny tear in the corner of Reed's eye.  Anyone remember what a talented artist my dad is? I'm  pretty sure this picture will magically appear on his drawing table someday soon.

Reed's spiritual birth.

It's an amazing feeling watching your children claim Christ as their Savior. My heart is full!

How can you even look at those without tears streaming down your face! The perfect outdoor setting for the two of them too! Hope to see them framed in a special spot in the new house!

Oh what a wonderful thing to watch your children when they give their lives to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! It is such a blessing! Praise be to God!

I just found your blog and it is beautiful. I am now following you. You have some very lovely ideas and crafts. :)

My four children are all grown now, but I have not had the blessing of seeing my children walk down that aisle and give their lives to Jesus Christ. I ask that you pray for them and their spouses/mates. Two of them are married and the other two are living with their boyfriend and girlfriend. I also ask that you pray that my youngest daughter marries the father of her son, or what ever God's will may be for her/them. I am also asking that my youngest son marries the mother of his son. They are also living together and have been for 4 1/2 years. My husband and I have been praying for all our family that they might be convicted of their sins, repent and be saved. My oldest granddaughter is 8 and has accepted Jesus and was baptized into His fold. I have 7 other grandchildren with one more grandson due any day now, they are ages 7, 6, 4, 3, and three 2 yr olds. They are not triplets just three little boys all born in 2010. Please pray for our family. Thank you so much. I didn't mean to write a book but I do want to ask for ya'lls prayers. I just pray that God's will is done, not mine.
Hugs, Paula
