Just a COPY Cat =) but SO cool!

As part of my blog transformation or whatever I should call it, I have made several new friends.  One of the most creative is KIM - Not only is she creative and talented but she shares so much AWESOME stuff!

And because I am a copy cat, I am now searching for a changing table and baby crib.  (thinking I might actually have a crib in our basement - but it's really, really scary down there =)  Please check out her blog but here's a few things that I found so cute and useful -

Aren't these just the coolest ideas?  Kim is truly awesome.  You can also check her out on FACEBOOK

Happy Friday!



Where I work, everything is an acronym.  As short as two.  As long as five.  But everything is shortened to an acronym.  So LWSL fits right in.

Living Well, Spending Less is one on my new favorite blogs.  I love Ruth Sukoup's story.  I love her meaning.  I love her writing.  And today when her newsletter came out I was once again amazed by her.  And ironically enough, as I was reading her news letter, my clock was playing How Great Thou Art.  Fitting.

You see this week she is writing from Israel.  Check out this paragraph -

Here in Israel especially I am learning so much about my own faith as the stories from the Bible literally come alive.  Yesterday we walked down the Mount of Olives and ended up in the Garden of Gethsemane.  We also visited the excavation site of the City of David and the Pool of Siloam, as well as the place where the Temple once stood, and where Jesus overturned the money changer’s tables.  There is something a little bit indescribable about seeing and touching these places that are so familiar and yet so foreign. 

The bible stories came to life for me too.  Wow. And as I read on, I realized that the project
Museum of the Bible  Is actually happening in Washington, DC.  Just a little over an hour from our home.   And the family that owns Hobby Lobby is behind this whole project.  WHO.  DOES.  NOT.  LIKE.  HOBBY LOBBY?!

So when I saw the opportunity to be part of  One Million Names  I knew I didn't want to miss out!  

It doesn't sound like it will be open until next year but I will certainly be making a trip to find my little name =)

Have a great Saturday!  


Quiet time -

I have to be honest (sounds like our friend, George =), mornings are my quiet time.  During the week, I like to get up early, sip my coffee and read my daily devotions and check my e:mails.  I don't even turn the TV on.  (of course Ronnie doesn't understand why....how do I know what's going on in the world?! hehe)

This morning was one of those mornings.  Each morning I wonder if I am going to receive the notification that Joey has gone home.  This morning I almost felt positive but was happy to see 'not yet'.  I replayed this song and thought.

In The Time That You Gave Me from Hickory Films on Vimeo.

I am a very busy person.  I try to be a good person.  I try to be a good parent and provide direction but that seems to not necessarily be one of my strengths these days.  But this song hit me hard - One of those 'puts things into perspective 'kinda' songs. 

I have been pretty much MIA lately and promise to fill you in.  Some pretty major changes are coming - I am excited but won't say it hasn't been frustrating, lol. 

I will leave you with Joey's song (and please pick up their new album at Cracker Barrel).  Happy Wednesday my friends.
