On Friday, the 4th graders (Alyssa’s grade) led chapel at  school. It was all centered on “love!” 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37

How important is the Lord in your life? 

Is He on the back burner until you are ready to let Him in? 

Do you love Him with all your heart? 


Alaina Tales…

In our home everything turns out to be a teachable moment as I’m sure most of you do with your children.  I do find that in these moments that our kids do understand the point quicker and the life lesson is far more valuable than just reading it from a book, per say. 
On Valentine’s Day my hubby surprised me with–a four course meal. Ofcourse the three girls are with us as but Dan set the stage pretty well. There were roses and cards for all of us, our China was laid out, the dinner candles were lit and all us girls sat patiently awaiting the yummiest food. Dan told the girls that it was a special dinner and he pretended it was a fancy restaurant. As he served us, we both taught the girls about how we would behave in a very fancy restaurant. We talked about where you would keep your napkin, which fork to use, how to stay in your seat, how to cut your meat, how to order, using manners, the conversations you can have at a dinner table and the list goes on! 

Dan happily took his time serving each one of us and played the role of “waiter” pretty well. The girls got a kick out him adding salads to their plates or the appetizers and even Aliyah got into it by making her own choices–it was a blast! 

It was time for him to sit and enjoy the delicious food with us as we celebrated Valentine’s Day as a family. But

I looked across the table and there is my five year old staring at me. I asked, “Alaina what’s wrong, don’t you like the food?” She shifted her eyes slightly to the side glaring at her daddy while slyly pointing at him and says quietly at the table (because we do not raise our voices in a fancy restaurant), ” I don’t know if I can eat; why is this waiter eating with us?” 

Ofcourse, we all erupted in laughter and that teachable moment went a different direction that night. More tales of Alaina to come as she has been developing into her own little personality! 

Happy Friday Everyone! 

Valentine’s Day Boxes

I remember having to write out Valentine’s Day cards to each friend and passing out candies and that was pretty much it. 

But my girls not only do traditional cards and candies but these days a Valentine’s Day box is where it’s at! Basically you can use a tissue box, shoe box, cereal box or whatever your creative mind takes you and decorate to your hearts desire! (Pun  totally intended) 

Here are two boxes we did for this Valentine’s Day! Love how their personality comes through even in crafting!

Perfect Love…

I have been worried sick lately about so many things that I have no control over! Everyday little by little it stole my peace and joy. But when I refocused on His perfect love for me, I realized I don’t have to worry/fear because He will come through in His perfect time. (And He does everytime)

My lesson this week: I need to learn to accept the reality of His love for me, so that my worries/fears do not control me.  Don’t let  anything separate you from God’s love, you will have the victory!                            

Love to you all!❤️
