Thankfulness of the little things too

A bantering of the small things I am thankful for (in no particular order)....
  coffee, nail polish, flat irons, chocolate chip cookies, my husband's strong hands, sticky little kid kisses, warm fireplaces, child laughter, friends hugs, teenage high fives, back rubs, ben and jerrys ice cream, clearance racks, erasers, lightning bugs, sunsets,the lost and found bin, tide pens, fuzzy slippers....Sometimes, it's the little things in life that we overlook every day but yet they remind us who we are and where we are and in that tiny glimps of a moment, that's all that matters...

Beautiful song: Give Into Me

So today I felt like I needed to post this song. Our dear friends Steve and Jenettea Mino sang this song. We are blessed to listen to Steve every Sunday but it was a rare treat to hear Jenetta. Wouldn't it be great if we all just gave in...

Paper here...paper there....

Gene and I have gotten all our documents now. I have been busy this weekend color code tabbing all the homestudy documents and am now onto organizing the dossier documents. I am built for this but even I am a bit on the intimidated side! Thank God he gives me strength (and cofee) Phew- ready...set...gather papers !!!!

We are [paper] pregnant!

We received our first email from our family coordinator filled with all kinds of great files and lists and resources. Of course I live for this kinda thing so now I am all jittery ready to tackle the mound of paperwork that will be our all consuming object until it is completed. Really- who am I kidding- I kinda cheated and already started collecting some of the documents. Ok- to be really honest I kinda cyber stalked various blogs trying to find out what type of paperwork we may need and then I kinda, maybe, sorta, started collecting it first. You may call it crazy, but I call it proactive :)

So now that we are paper pregnant, it's ok I can't fit into my jeans...right! On to my mound of papers....

Opening our hearts even more to trust him.

        This song hit both of us hard.  We heard this song at church when Dennis was performing and it resonated in our hearts. We are trusing in eachother and trusting in our awesome father God.
