Amesley's First Hair Cut

Before the Cut

Getting it cut!

The Finished Do

After the Cut!

Amesley got her FIRST hair cut yesterday. We went to a place called Pigtails and Crew cuts. As you can see in the picture, she was able to select if she wanted to sit in a firetruck, police car, plane or a taxi while she got her hair cut. Amesley was very still and quiet during the hair cut...this could have something to do with the sucker in her mouth :-)

Happy Mother's Day!

Remebering the years we prayed that God would give us children- and praying I will never forget those years of waiting on the Lord. Thank you, Lord for THE MESSAGE COLIN SMITH gave, which provided a precious reminder of learning to wait.

He said:
"If there is one thing in your life that you particularly long for and it is not yet there and may never be there. That more than anything else is the place where you can demonstrate that you Love God for God and not just God for His gifts. In the abundance of what God has given to you, take the one thing you long for the most and offer it to Him as worship and it will transform disappointment into praise. It will make a great change for the Glory of God at a deep place in your life."

I thank God for the sweet blessings He has given us, in Amesley and Asher. I am a living example of this verse "He makes the barren woman abide in the house, As a... joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD!" (Psalm 113:9) Thanks be to God from whom all blessings flow! Thank you Lord for shaping me into your image through trails...may I find great joy in trails of life!
