All My Words.

Looking back..... I have blogged here at blogspot for 11 years. I spent some time this morning reading back over some of my post through the years. A lot has changed through the years.

When I a started this blog in Jan 2007 - both of my parents were still living. My youngest was 3.5 years old and my oldest was 21.

Time moves on.....

I am so thankful that I have shared our journey here.

Over the years I have struggled with how much to share ~  but, wanting to always be real. I read a book by Karen Ehman called Zip It. It is a 40 day challenge to choose kindness~ to choose our words wisely. Karen talks about what we text or write too... not just what we speak. 💗

I love words. 💛

With all of our computers woes the passed few years I have blogged less.... but, I still love it and plan to continue journalling here. I love Instagram. Its like a mini blog. I've been on Instagram since 2012. Lots of words in these places of mine. May I always choose my words carefully!

I would love for you to leave me a comment ...sharing how long you've been reading here at my place!

Before a word is on my tongue You, Lord know it completely.
 Ps. 139:4

Eric Cuno Doing His Homework

I found this today in my drafts. Oh my heart!
This is right around the time we sponsored Erik!
Our friend Kees sent it to us, he is the one who told
us about Erik needing a sponsor. Kees visits Bolivia often!
So thankful to peek in! Erik is 14 now! We have sponsored him
for 6 years as of this week!

Compassion has made it so easy to write to our sponsored
children... with the compassion app on our phones it only
takes a few minutes! They cherish our letters!

Do you sponsor a child through Compassion International? I would love for you to share!
It has truly changed our lives!

It Snowed in South Georgia!

On Jan. 3, 2018 it SNOWED! That is so rare for our area.

It hasn't snowed here since 2010! Even then it wasn't as much as it was on the 3rd of January!

Lysa was home still on Christmas break. I'm soo glad she was here to enjoy this special memory with us! 

Our home. SIMPLE... but we love it. 

So  very thankful for our day of snow. We are summer/beach people so one day of snow is enough... but we loved how pretty and beautiful it all was....  my three musketeers played and had snowball fights! A day for the memory books!

My Reads for 2018

I'm sure I will add lots more. I love books more than fancy things or clothes. (blush)~

Some of these I have not finished from 2017, some I am reading again.... and some are new. 

What are you reading this year?
