Francie is going to be a ballerina for Halloween this year! It was the cheapest Halloween costume I have ever bought and she can use it for dance class too!! She is so cute as a ballerina! Her little tummy and her behind- adorable! I had to play dress up with her when I brought home the tutu! She loved it!

We have been so busy lately! As soon as I can, I will put up a few pics from our holiday festivities!! Hope you have a spectacular Halloween with your families!! Happy Halloween!!

Cupcake Queen!

Granny got Francie a cupcake maker for her birthday!! She loves cupcakes and she couldn't wait to try it out so she made herself and Will one the other night! And I must say they are very courageous to eat these cupcakes! I mean, they took 30 seconds to cook! There has to be something wrong with that, but no one got sick- PTL! She had a great time and it really was fun to cook with her!

Doesn't that look delicious!?! ;)

The rest of the verse says: "for His mercy is great"! 2 Samuel 24:14

I changed my bulletin board today for fall (I love to do bulletin boards)- for the past few years I've been using Bible verses and art projects that go with our theme or season or lessons- so I looked up verses that had the word "fall" in them. I came across this verse and it just pierced my heart! It was perfect (a message I've been needing to hear)!! I love when God catches me off guard to remind me of truth! Now I have this reminder everyday at school!

Dear Jesus,
Help me to fall into your hands! To rest in your peace and soak up your beauty! Thank you for your great mercy to me, a great sinner! I love you!!

True Delight!

Thou lovely source of true delight whom I unseen adore
Unveil Thy beauties to my sight that I might love Thee more
Oh that I might love Thee more
Thy glory o'er creation shines yet in Thy sacred word
I read in fairer brighter lines my bleeding, dying Lord
Oh my bleeding, dying Lord
'Tis here whene'er my comforts droop and sin and sorrows rise
Thy love with cheering beams of hope my fainting heart supplies
My fainting heart supplies
And ah too soon the pleasing scene is clouded over with pain
My gloomy fears rise dark between and I again complain
Oh and i again complain
JESUS MY LORD, MY LIFE, my light, oh come with blissful ray
break radiant through the shades of night and chase my fears away
Won't you chase my fears away
Then shall my soul with rapture trace the wonders of Thy love
But the full glories of Thy face are only known above
They are only know above
Oh come let us adore
My bleeding, dying Lord
