Far from Wordless Wednesday

Today I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with things to say/share. I want to start by talking about Joanne. If you aren't familiar with this sweet woman, I encourage you to get to know her and the family that loves her. Life can certainly change in the blink of an eye. Please also consider praying for her and if you feel led, there are other ways you can help which are posted on her blog.

In thinking about Joanne, I realize even more how selfish my complaints are. You have been patient with me. You have "listened" and encouraged. You have reminded me of my blessings. I am grateful. Here's a pic of a couple of my blessings. I hope this doesn't seem inappropriate here in this post.

These are my beauties at Christmastime when we were able go back and visit Tulsa. Utica Square is a place to experience and one that will remain forever special to us. 

The next thing that is competing for my attention is how behind I am. I haven't been online much since the New Year... actually in the last 6 months. So, I haven't read this oh-so-important-to-me blog to realize that I haven't committed to SSMT. Yikes! Gotta get movin' on this one.

This is my first verse...

Now to him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV

Pics of your girls are never inappropriate...I don't know Joanne any more than what I've been updated on via her blog, but I know this: she would love the picture of your girls :)
Sooo glad you are back, fellow siesta :))
