Princess Gymnastics

 Molly just started a gymnastics class.  It took some convincing to get her to go the first time.  I had to call it "Princess Gymnastics" before she decided to go.  After her third class, she told me, "There were two princesses and two Prince Charmings at Princess Gymnastics!"  Now, she loves it and asks to go to gymnastics often during the week!

 Yummy snow!

Your Grace is Enough

2010 brought the most difficult times of my life.  Painful circumstances left me feeling alone, ashamed, and completely powerless.  Yet, God was abundantly faithful during my lows. 

He comforted me with His presence.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Psalm 46:1
I praised God that my inheritance is in heaven.
There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.  Proverbs 23:18

God hears all my cries.
The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth.  Psalm 145:18

God loves righteousness (even when others do wrong, God's ways are ALWAYS RIGHT!)
Your righteousness is everlasting and Your law is true.  Psalm 119:142

He is my Father now that my Dad has gone to heaven.
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.  Psalm 68:5

He provides for my every need.  He provided so beautifully for our finances.  He provided a great job for me and childcare for Molly. 
The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time.  Psalm 145:15

He painted His love for me in beautiful sunrises that made me cry out in worship.
His compassions never fail. They are new every morning;  great is Your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:21,22

I have an Advocate.
Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.  Job 16:19  I love this verse!

God showed His love to me through precious loved ones that blessed me.
So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.  Romans 12:5
