After all of these years the Pink Lucy Tree finally takes her place next to my Lucy collection. My heart is so happy right now! ❤️πŸ’—❤️

Someone has come to the realization that costumes are in his future & this is only the beginning.

He displayed His glory. John 2:11⁣

4 years ago...my walk with Jesus was radically changed when I opened up a Journaling Bible & began worshipping in color. The way the scripture came to life to me was profound. Over the last 4 years I have worked through 2 Bibles. I'm about to begin the 3rd one. There have been times where I journaled daily or there was space between entries. This is not a hobby but a way of intimacy with my best friend, Jesus. My heart has a constant longing to be sitting in my art room with my Bible opened surrounded by art supplies, pouring out my love to Him.
He's the best!

September???

How in the world is it already September? Didn't we just celebrate New Years?

Tons of stuff going on. Today, I was at the church getting this started up for Scrooge. Yes, you read that correctly. It is time to get things to the cleaners & laundered.

It's so terribly hot here. Still hitting the 3 digit heat index. We had a picnic at church Sunday & I think more people picnicked in the air condition than outside. Haha! But it was a good day!

Wonton is fitting in perfectly to our family & I honestly can't imagine life without this sweet big boy. Dottie bosses his around just like she does all of us. It's hysterical to watch.

Speaking of Dottie...Here is a pic that I just took of her.

"The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."⁣

1 Samuel 16:7⁣

This scripture has always been my anthem, so to speak. When I was a "new on fire for Jesus" teen, I had a T-shirt with the scripture. I wore it until it fell apart. I have failed at upholding this scripture throughout my life. Judging people for their actions, not thinking about the heart or situation behind it all. We never know the condition of someone's heart. We live in a world that cries to not be judge. Yet we are the first to label each other. I'm so grateful for His love. That He sees me. The raw, real, imperfect yet beautiful me. He sees the same in you too. Don't forget that. πŸ’–⁣

Wonton felt left out with all of these school pics. ⁣
Dottie said she is too mature for this nonsense.⁣

August 4th was my Granny's birthday & I completely forgot to post about it. I feel so bad. πŸ˜• But today August 6th is another important birthday. It is Lucille Ball's. And I thought what better way to honor both of these women, than with a combined tribute.  My granny is the one who introduced me to Lucille Ball. She is the reason why Lucille Ball is so significant to me. These two women were both incredibly strong, passionate about life, determined and hilarious. So happy birthday to two of the most influential women in my life.⁣

•I have always admired "Queen Anne's Lace" from the window of the car as I would pass by it growing along side of the road. Super excited to find some growing in my yard for the first time!⁣

•We don't have grass in our yard so we go next door to Nana's to stretch out during our walks. ⁣

Something Different







I shared this the other day on social media & have been able to chat privately with some incredibly precious ladies.

A Few Updates

I have been slacking on the blogging lately. Let's see if I can swing an update....

Wonton has settled in very nicely to our family. If you follow me on social media you see him A LOT! He just celebrated his first birthday. And keeps growing! Haha!

I snapped some tendons in my right foot walking Wonton one afternoon in May. I was laid in, having to keep weight off of it & icing it. 
Then one Sunday it just didn't seem to be getting better. I even told D that I thought it was broken. I went to SOAK at church that night & during worship, I felt something change in my body. Then next morning I woke up & the pain was gone from my foot! It was healed! No pain since either! Glory!!!

D was at Beach Freak all last week. And he got to baptize one of the boys in his small group. Super emotional about that.

There is tons of other stuff that has happened. Life is busy & we love it!



No Ocean Too Wide ~ Book Review























When I read the synopsis for "No Ocean Too Wide" I was immediately intrigued. I love to read about parts of history that are typically unknown. So the idea of a book about children being sent from England on ship to Canada in the early 1900's was a must read for me.

The story follows the McAllister family. After losing their father & then their Mom being hospitalized for an illness, their world came crashing down. Laura who is the oldest of the siblings was already working as a lady's maid at a large estate. So the twins, Katie & Garth, along with the baby of the family, Grace are sent to children's homes. Then begins the saga of Laura discovering this injustice of her siblings circumstance & trying to get her siblings back.

Now...I'm going to be completely honest here. This book is not at all as I had hoped. I wanted details about this tragic situation that was going on with children during this period in time. I felt it was more glossed over & that part of the story was lost to a sappy romance. Which I cared zero about. People can get help from someone without falling in love. That annoyed me.

I'm not saying it's a bad book by any means. I personally wanted more from the story that was inspired by historical events.

I received this book from Waterbrook & Multnomauh sent me this book to review for my honest opinion.
