easter blessings

i hope that Easter finds you surrounded by friends, family, and God's love...

Easter2010

my wish for every one of us is to know will all that we are, that Jesus lives in us...i love these lyrics from 'You are Here (The Same Power)':

'The same power that conquered the grave 
Lives in me, Lives in me 
Your love that rescued the earth 
Lives in me, lives in me'

i needed His strength more than once today (who cries at disneyland???!!!!) and He did not disappoint!! i was able to hear my baby girl's voice today, what a blessing to hear that she is okay! and, what a blessing this trip to mississippi is for her! i can't wait to hear all about the trip...five more days!

thank you for your prayers and eat lots of jelly beans for me (mine are all gone already!)...no baskets this year, i just put all of nic's favorites in my center piece for when she gets home...

Happy Easter dear friends!

vintage inspiration

if one were considering getting VERY serious about a certain endeavor, one would perhaps do something like this...for inspiration...

Bottomdrawer2

just what i needed to kick my butt into gear!!! it is coming girls...seriously!!! i have some fun planned and i can't wait to share! a HUGE thank you to my dear friend for the cabinet...a piece of a wonderful place now lives in my home...

Bottomdrawer

vintage deliciousness...coming to a creation near you!!! oh boy, oh boy!!

for those that are the prayin' sort...would you mind taking a moment to pray for my chicka? my little birdie (17 year old chick) is mid flight to jackson, mississippi on a missions trip with a small group of children from her school...she will be visiting and working with this amazing organization...it is what she wants to do with her life...in her words:

"Our God is a just God; we are called to emulate His justice. Our God is a God who loves justice. So stand firmly against injustice, rise above intolerance, and stay true to acceptance."

this mama bird appreciates it...hard to let her go from the nest, easier when you have faith and know that she is going to soar...

thank you for stopping in, OCL friday sketch will be posted tomorrow...i got a little sidetracked with my vintage fun today!
