How creative God has made us

I've been looking at other blogs and seeing beautiful photography, music, poems, needlework, quilts, etc.... I don't have the ability to produce any of those much less write a tutorial BUT I do believe God has given us all talents to use for Him.

Two Sundays ago we went to Chiles after church and there was a balloon artist who created insects out of balloons for the two boys. They were very cute. I wish I could have taken a picture of them before the boys let the cat destroy them. I've kept that great moment of her creation in my mind for 2 weeks and it continues to bring a smile.

I haven't wrapped my head around what creations we will produce this next school year. I think we have great potential and opportunity.

Wonderful Summer

I've decided that this is the most important summer I have ever had. When I wasn't commiserating over the pain in my knees I was spending time with my husband, my children, my friends and family.
Above is Scott throwing the first pitch at the Round Rock Express baseball game. Mom, Larry, Paul, Justin, Jacob, Deb, Craig, Larissa, Nathan, Tabitha and Annalisa were there to cheer Scott on.
Every Friday the ladies of our life group get together to eat. I was able to get together with Lori in New Braunfels. The fellowship of Christian ladies has been wonderful.
I loved going to Marble Falls with Paul...every walk, every quiet moment, every talk was time well spent. I love taking Jacob shopping. This child lives life like he feels it should be spent never criticizing others for making different choices.

My oldest two children have made me proud in their adult decisions. Justin loving college and Chelsea working steadily at her job making sure she can pay her bills.

Justin, Chelsea and I have many opportunities to sit, talk, and have laughs together.

This had been a wonderful summer.

I release you

Prayer for Chelsea

Thank you Lord for Your many promises of protection. You have kept Chelsea safe from accidents, disease, and injury. I now ask for your help to release her to adulthood knowing that she has morals and values embedded in her heart. Help me not to hold on and stop her from growing in her ability to make independent decisions. Give her a vision for her life when setting goals. Help her to see herself as You do--from her future and not from her past. Teach her to look to You as her hope for the future.
In Him I pray.
