HELLO Monday!

Linking up with Lisa at Lisa Lenard's Design today for HELLO Monday. If you have never dropped by Lisa's blog, you should.  She is such a talented gal and always has a big smile.
Hello Fun Run............
Ready, set, GO.....
The church our son, DIL and the Princess are members of had a "fun run" this past Saturday morning.  It was a fund raiser for missions.  Hanna Beth was so excited about it and she gave it her all and ran her little heart out.  Now, Dad and Mom, I'm not quite so sure. ~chuckle~  But, what fun for such a great cause.
HELLO closet...........

I spent part of this past Saturday morning straightening up my closet.  Since our house is older it doesn't have California Closets, so I had to come up with my own ideas for organization.  And, I think I did a good job. ~just sayin'~  Over the years I have done a lot of things but about 5 years ago I got the  pull out baskets, pictured above, at Lowe's and they have been "the cat's meow" as my Daddy would say.  Then I got the over the door hanger for my most used scraves and a men's tie rack for my belts.  And, I use the clear plastic shoe boxes for my shoes.  Yep, this is my version of California Closets. And, for now, it works very well.

HELLO True Spirituality.........

As I mentioned in my previous post, our church began a 6 week study of the book, True Spirituality, yesterday.  Our pastor will be preaching  on Sunday mornings on subjects from the book and on Sunday evenings we are in a small group setting.  As I read the chapters for last night's lesson my heart was so stirred, especially when it began talking about total surrender. It hit me so hard as I looked at my life and saw places that I have not surrendered in the 54 years that I have been a Christian.  One would think that after that many years, you would have it together spiritually.  But, I am still a work in progress and I praise Him that He isn't through with me yet.  If you are in need of some real "soul searching" then I cannot recommend this book enough.  You can go to Living on the Edge if you want to learn more about the book and study.

HELLO  new life........
 I had also mentioned in my last post that I had some exciting things to share with you.  Well, I have been given permission  to share with you that our daughter is pregnant "again" with their 2nd baby.  As many of you know, she has had 3 late term miscarriages the past 2 years, so this is a really BIG deal.  If you want to read all about this you can go to her blog here.  We are all cautiously excited and hopeful that this pregnancy is going to go smoothly and they will be blessed with a healthy baby around Oct. 15th.  Bridget and Clint have a peace, not that everything is going to be okay, but that the Lord will be with them each step of the way, just as He has been in the past.  But, all of our prayers are that HE will see fit to bring this to pass. I'll keep you posted!

  3. Such exciting news about the baby! I need to check out that Chip Ingram book. Romans 12 is a chapter of the Bible that I memorized as a child. Verses 1-2 have been ones that I try to live by but often fall short. Thanks for sharing about this. Happy Monday!

    Blessings and love,

  13. Congratulations regarding the new baby, prayers will be lifted for your family! I too am so thankful that God doesn't give up on us, He could have left me by the way side many times as I've struggled to live a life worthy of His calling! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  14. I don't know how I missed commenting on this post, but evidently had good intentions because this page was open on the computer. I really like all your organizational items. And if that little Princess doesn't keep getting more and more adorable! I think I've already told you how excited I am about Bridgett's pregnancy, but let me do it again. Praying for the well being of this precious baby.
