Perfect!

Check out Kyalynn's new bed! Gabriella will have one just like it and Connor will have one with a cross in the headboard. After pining away for bunkbeds (all the kids beds have been on the floor) and finally finding a set that was within our budget and my man saying yes then the IRS holds back our refund and those beds went from $118 (for the set with free mattresses!)back up to $538!! Um, no way! This girl ain't paying that! So since the guys have time and extra wood they are making them instead. How cool is that?! AND I heart these waaayyy better too!! :)

The kids are so excited. We are painting the girls' white and then Ericka will be painting pictures on the headboards to match their personalities. Kyalynn~bugs and animals, Gabi~princesses of course! LOL! Connor's will stay wood grain and not sure yet what pics he'll have on his. Big brother Zachary had made a bed for Nolan back when Samuel first came home because we needed the crib. (I don't know why because Samuel prefers to sleep in bed with us and he MUST be touching me at all times. LOL!) So....now everyone will have special beds made with love!!

That is really special! What a meaningful piece of furniture. I agree, they are way better than anything you'd buy!

Wow!!! LOVE that bed! And I agree, so much better than store-bought! The IRS is holding our refund, too. Seems to be a trend this year, especially for those of us who have adopted...

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
