Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real {the sky is falling}

This lovely rose in my front yard was glistening in the sunrise after a brief shower from the sprinklers. 
This verse filled my heart and soul out of nowhere:
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
Luke 1:46-47 (NAB)
Isn't the beauty of God's creation simply stunning at times?

New scooters bring about the biggest smiles these days as little KC is able to keep up with his big brothers.

Have you seen these adorable pencils at Office Max?  I decided mom needed a few back to school supplies too!

A sign of things to come and I can't wait!

P.S.  Please pray for us and (all along the East Coast) as we prepare for Hurricane Irene.
The earth shook us up the other day and rattled our nerves.
Now the impending storm has us literally battening down the hatches
so blogging will be on the back burner for a while.
My kids are frightened for our home.
Please wrap us in your prayers.
You are all in ours.
 Will keep you posted!

  1. You and your family will be in our prayers.

  2. Wowsers! Earthquakes and hurricane in the same week. Craziness. Prayers for your home and family as Irene approaches! May His angels keep care over you.

    Gorgeous photos!

  3. We will pray for you and others on the east coast.

  4. we are definitely keeping you (and other friends of ours along the coast) in our prayers... peace, my friend.

  5. Oh Misty- I'll be praying for all of you! We used to live in Miami and had a number of hurricanes while there. Try to prepare stuff for your kids to do while there is no power: board games, simple crafts, charge all computers, phones, iPads, etc (anything that could be used for the kids to watch a video or play a game) and have some fun snacks and drinks (that don't involve opening the refrigerator!). If you can help them pass the time, they won't be so scared.

  6. I love school supplies! I was so sad when I graduated college and no longer needed to buy them. Luckily, my own child starts 4k this year and I get to indulge in the wonderful smell of fresh school supplies again!

  7. I LOVE those pencils!!!! I so wish I had an Office Max around (I don't even have a WalMart near by - so I'm super out of luck), I would go get those asap!
    Prayers for you and your family as you prepare for the hurricane. We used to live in Houston - I know that fear. I'll especially be praying for a sense of peace in your little ones!

  8. I love his "new scooter smile"! We are praying for all of your safety.
