About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

It's Never Too Soon

I pray for my girls all the time.
I have started to pray for their future husbands, too.


                      They are in the world right now... somewhere.
                    

                           I pray that they know and love the Lord.
                  I pray that they will grow to be kind, loving and 
                  strong.
                  I pray that they will love and cherish my girls. 
                  Someday.


                                Each day brings us closer to that time.


                                      sigh.

I have 3 competitive swimmers and joke that I have three more in the pipeline! I swam in high school and college and think it's the greatest sport in the world, especially for homeschoolers. And I agree, it's never to early to begin praying for their future mates!

Following you now.

Lori my parents prayed for my future husband when I was a little girl and they taught me to pray for him as well... I specifically remember praying for the man/boy the Lord would have me marry when I was a very young girl... Probably the most important prayers of my life... I have been HAPPILY, BLISSFULLY, and HONORABLY married for 21 years!

Oh Lori how true this is!! I pray for Kaitlin all the time and also remind her that she needs to find someone she is evenly yoked with!! I love the fact that you and your Katie are doing the couponing together too! Isn't it a blast! that too is a learning lesson for a lifetime. To be frugual!! Mandy is looking so pretty as she matures. I pray for her all the time Lori!! Love, XO Fran.

I pray for our girls, too - ages 11 and 13. It's always encouraging to see other moms who do the same for their own daughters' future husbands. God bless you!

Thank you for stopping by on my website to say hello!
