One Dreamy Dad

Blessed indeed is the man who hears
many gentle voices call him father!
~Lydia M. Child, Philothea: A Romance, 1836

The voices may not always be "gentle", but boy do they love to call on their Daddy! Happy Father's Day to the Man of my Dreams...who has since become the Man of their Dreams.

Best Birthday Gift Ever

You might think I was going to share about what a wonderful birthday I had, and how my husband went above and beyond to bless me like he never has before.
The birthday decor, the yummy food, the new, beautiful piece of furniture...all meaningless next to the Birthday Gift God had in store for me.
Little did I know that the Book of Life was about to have another name added to it. A name that holds a special place in this Momma's heart.

Abigail Kathryn Ruley

It's a good thing I was too tired to go on a walk last night...I would have missed out on
my beloved and I, joined in hands with our first born daughter, praying that simple, yet life changing prayer.
A prayer that allows one to unwrap and enjoy the best gift ever created...Salvation.

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
—John 1:12

Perfect Pairings ~ Galations 6:2

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Galations 6:2

{ "Perfect Pairings" is a fun and easy way to blog. Just find a picture you like and then pair it with a scripture...or, vice versa, think of a scripture and try to find a picture to fit its theme. Then, post your link in the comment section below. What a great way to share a picture, and at the same time, honor God with His Word! }

Abby Shines at Nine!

My beautiful first born daughter turns nine today.
When I think back, nine is the age when I really start having strong memories.
I thought I was so grown up.
She does too.
Abby has always been such a JOY to have in our lives.
She's the "Life of the Party"
and almost always has a SMILE on her face :)
One of my favorite traits of hers is the authentic love she has for her siblings...she truly is the BEST Big Sister ever!
She loves nature, animals, pretty much anything that can breathe.
She is a nurturer...
and a compassionate, affection and caring soul
And that girl loves her some FASHION!
(don't know where she gets it?!!)
We've always called her our lil Cheerleader...
She loves school
(1st day of Kindergarten)
and dressing up
She is the Momma Hen of the bunch
She loves learning about God & doing Mom/Dot Bible Studies...precious times
She loves music & has turned into quite the pianist...we adore watching her play
She is our BIRTHDAY GIRL and we love her so...
*Happy 9th Birthday Abigail Kathryn! We are so thankful for the gift of YOU*
A mother's treasure is her daughter. ~Catherine Pulsifer
