This Week's Scripture

"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!

We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Football, playdoh people, treasures, and blessings!

Here are some pictures of our blessings! The first one above is playdoh people Rose created and I think Grace is making a cake! Playdoh is one of their favorite things to do! The next one is a completed Noah's Ark big floor puzzle the Rohner's gave the children. They love puzzles! Ok, the next I had to show you. This is how Rose sleeps every night!! Looks like a mess but she actually has it very organized!! Notice the two blue pillows that blocks her bed entrance with the black and white dog cuddled under the blanket. Then there is the girls' vanity that she moves as close to her bed as possible along with the M c Donald's station that is not pictured but it is there. And then there is the shopping cart loaded with her treasures! Now the vanity is loaded with her "necessities" like the princess crown, her two bottles of lotion, some lip gloss and pretty much any piece of paper she could get her hands from the day!! No kidding!! There are pony tail holders, babydoll bottles, pencils and colors along with a baby brush, scarves, her princess slippers that she places between the wall and the bed. If you look to the right of the picture you can see the bottom of the pink slippers placed snuggly between the bed and wall! Now these are all the things in plain view. This is not counting all the stuff she hides under her blanket and pillow! No, we don't encourage this. I actually check under her pillow and blanket to remove toys but this morning I had to take a picture. She and Grace are my girly girls and the morning I took this photo, I was loving what I saw!!
And the last two pictures are more blessings! This is cousin Ethan and Asa at a college football game with their Dads!! This was a while back but I just got the picture yesterday.

Hi Aimee, So good to get a comment from you and realize you still read my blog :o) I am going to post about backing up the Blog on CD since you and several others have inquired about it. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Hi! I was so blessed by reading your blog! We are in the process of adopting through a domestic infant program. We will be adopting an african american infant. It is wonderful to see a family like yours.

Do you have any advice on the financial end of adoption? I am trying to research loans, grants, etc.
