Beauty of the Lord

Summer has ended and the weather has changed
and another season has begun
I'm almost certain that time is moving faster
and days are much much shorter then they were when I was young
I'm almost certain
a week can go by in 1 day
or maybe its just the joy of being a mom
or maybe I'm just too busy
whatever the case..
I need to slow down and enjoy the day..
just to enjoy the beauty of the Lord..
each and everyday

God has given me this amazing pink flower where its beauty shines among the rusted

He has given me this amazing little girl with the bluest eyes and delicate curls
that just melt your heart to pieces

this say it all- perfectly
super cute note cards-
check out my etsy shop and facebook for more of my work.

There is always beauty amoung us
sometimes we just have to slow down and take in all in

I will be posting a 30 day mom challenge soon
God Bless

My poor baby is not feeling to well
so its time to snuggle up and bring out the good stuff
Yes my little girl LOVES beans!
I'm so proud:)

these are some mean beans
add a side of potatoes = total awesomeness.

Campfire Beans

1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 pound uncooked bratwurst links, cut into 1-inch slices, cooked and drained

1 can (15-3/4oz) pork and beans
1 can (15-1/4oz) lima beans, rinsed and drained

you live and learn

When little Rihanna was changed
I though I knew everything..HA
I knew nothing.. what a shock!
I though I would be a perfectly good mom..yet I fail
each and every day..
but I try to do my very best..
to me that counts as something.
You live and learn and
God never gives us something we cant handle

In the mist of learning to be a mom
I have discovered that when you have a girl
you need BOWS
AND MORE BOWS or flowers.

here are some that I have learned to loved and make

I love being a Mom!

What about you
come see all of my work at my esty shop

we are BLESSED

If I could have summed up today in just one word...
It would have been
results from a
rough night

In this blah day
I found something.
something that made me think
something that gave me a change of heart
something that made me want to un blah my blah day
something simple.
as WE.
WE are Blessed
we are!
In my rough night, I was able to hold our little blessing
In this rainy day, I had a home to keep me dry
On this cold day, I had clothes to keep me warm

Thank you Lord, You are my rock!

The LORD liveth: and blessed be my rock and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.
2 Samuel 22:47
