blessed & hopefully a blessing...

I am thrilled that the sun is finally shining again in northern Michigan... that is not a complaint of the rain... just ready for a little sun... even if it is a lil' chilly!!! I finally broke down & turned the furnace on this morning... it was 30 outside & 55 inside. I tend to be stingy when it comes to heat in the house... you can always put on more clothes or a blanket... right? It is hard to type with gloves on though *Ü*

Here are the cards we did at my SU party... I love the combo of Baja Breeze & Kiwi Kiss... the Upsy Daisy set is one I want to get sometime. Don't you just love the owl... my owl looks a little short & fat, but you get the idea... I think he looks more like a turkey-owl... the Haiku DP is great too! My sis, aka SU demo., has so many neat ideas!

We have a busy weekend ahead of us... but looking so forward to it! This is Celebration Weekend at our church to celebrate the completion of the new facility. Tonight we are having a free concert with "Downhere" & the "Michael Gungor Band" performing... it should be a great concert! So if you are in the area check it out... for directions or just to visit go to Resurrection Life Church website. My hubby & I are involved in a special drama at all 3 services this weekend... it is a "cardboard testimony"... on one side of the cardboard it says what you use to be & when you flip it over it says how Christ has changed your life. It is going to be a moving & exciting weekend. Christ has moved so much in our life... I can't even tell of it all... we are so blessed... the verse that comes to my mind is Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD: and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

What a verse to live by & what an awesome promise! Something that I have hoped & prayed for is taking place & I feel so thankful for all that has happened to bring us, as a couple, to this point in our life & our marriage. Waiting for something is never easy for me, but when I let God do the work & not butt my nose into His business... oh, how sweet it is!!!!

Have a great weekend... with a very grateFUL HEART, carin
