prayer breakfast

Posted: 01/31/2009 in house, spiritual growth

today we helped put on our annual prayer breakfast. 

it’s formal. 

the tables were all decked out. a pal of me, who is the head-dog of this shindig; 🙂 and i decorated the tables on thursday. the napkins were folded perfectly anxiously away their guests. 

the egg casseroles were baked. fruit washed. muffins baked.

it was gorgeous! 

everyone ate. 

then the program began.

lil kiddos did a quick ditty. 

scripture was read. 

on to my favorite part. 

eric drew a chalk drawing to music (i’ll post pictures later). it was totally awesome!!!  i’m not one to be easily moved to tears in moments like these, but i was. this is the song he chose.

i’ll post pictures of his drawing soon.  patience! 🙂 

then i signed my song (you raise me up). i practiced and practiced. i finally got the right touch of facials. 

now time to break out the stroller and this glorious saturday!! i’m oh so anxious for the weather to stay this way. we’ll be getting the final quotes by friday. then off to see the appraiser for the initial approval. then it will be time to work on the land title/deed and such. then we will have the green light to DIG! i’m so excited! this is really happening! it really is happening!!! wow!


we’re off…

… for the second to the last day. i’m so ready to be done. i’m so very exhausted. lizzie faith is so tired of being at church. today is going to be tough. we are there for our usual morning and then also for a couple hours in the afternoon to set up for a prayer breakfast we are having on saturday. tomorrow morning is probably going to be worst since we will be there so much today. i think i raised myself a homegirl just like her momma!

almost here

i seriously accidently found this. 


click in the top right hand corner-ish area “explore” and then “themes”.

i absolutely love their clean style. 

are you kidding me?

i did NOT want to see this! 

do i seriously have to go through this again over style? (moving my blog)


are they not amazing?!

i don’t even know what to think.

progress can be so difficult. 

it seems like at times you can see the progress and even feel like you are running to catch up with it! 

and then there are the times when you are attempting to drag it behind you and tugging and tugging with all your might and it refuses to budge. 

i was there today. 

i wasn’t happy. 

6 phone calls to one bank.

1 call to another bank.

1 call to an electric company.

2 calls to 2 different appraisers. 

total number of calls that can be labeled productive or considered progression: 4

can we say frustrating! 

but at the end of the day (yes it’s only 4:45 but our banks are closed and the sun rises and sets on that… so it appears) progress was made.

besides. when it warms up, i’m digging! it might be with my hands, but i’m gonna be digging! 🙂 so progress better start catching up!

oh please warm up soon!
