Hi friends!! Sorry for the lack of posts this week but I have been on spring break with the kids. Spring break means break for the kids but more work for the parents. haha! Actually, we had a staycation and it has been wonderful for us. We put together our garden bed which I will post next week and had lots of play dates and even swimming at our friend’s backyard! I know, crazy! Sorry, Boston peeps 🙁
Can I just say how thankful I am for you guys reading this little ole blog right here? When I first started around Christmas time, I told Jimmy not to tell anyone because I was feeling really timid about it. But the Lord really kept pressing it on my heart to use this little space to share my home and faith with you. I love baking, cooking and diy and this verse really is the theme to everything on, “Love Your Abode.”
So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
My prayer is always that it will all be for his glory. A few months ago, through my friend Gen and through this blog, I was connected with Kristen Bryant. We sat over Gen’s delicious homemade brunch and I got to hear her powerful testimony. Kristen writes a blog of her own at Shadows To Sunbursts. She and her husband write about their journey as parents of 5 and share their passion for fostering and adoption. I really loved this post where she shared her heart about the good, bad and ugly of a foster mother’s heart.
Recently, I’ve spoken with a few ladies about fostering and adoption so I thought sharing this resource could be really helpful. Kristen’s husband Ty is also the director of Foster Care initiatives at Promise 686. The website is www.livethepromise.org (foster care) www.promise686.org (adoption). If you want more information, check out those websites and you can also call Ty directly at 678-230-6381.
If this is something the Lord is putting on your heart, I hope these resources help you. I know her blog will really encourage your heart as well.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30
