Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

This and That

 Somebody had to put ice on her hand because she was trying to do a trick on her bike. The trick was to ride her bike FAST, then grab onto a tree branch and let the bike keep going.  The bike kept going, but the tree branch was a little large.... and somebody fell on her finger.  :)
 Erika has been a busy girl, learning a new crochet stitch.
And this is our garage sale find. We had to get a new filter, and that rock thingy in the middle.
I was commenting to Mike how much things have changed.  We purchased the fish tank last week. We took a few days to research what to do, and then we have made a trip to the pet store to look at fish and filters and have our water checked.  And now, a week later we will be getting fish.  7 months ago, Miss Alli would not have been able to handle the wait.  She would have been curled up in a little ball of misery. 
But today, she is enjoying each step.  She has really handled the WAIT, very well. :)  And TODAY, we are getting FISH. :)

Wow, she is way more patient than I am! I can't wait to have my puppy home with me.

That's a pretty crochet thing, Erika. (I don't really know what to call it. Cloth?)

I like that crochet stitch too!

And, I wouldn't handle the wait that well.
