Thursday Pearls

 "I work for a King. He has put me in charge of his home. When He comes to see how I have managed His possessions and His children, I do not want to be found wanting. I want to do my best. Everything I have is on loan from Him. I have room and board and a job to do, but it is all for Him. Therefore I want to dress my best and do my best in all my work. I also want to be creative, for this is a sincere attempt to glorify Him and His beautiful creation. How I manage my home is a form of worship to Him." 

~ Lydia Sherman

{Some lovely encouragement for the dear mothers in our lives who have laid down so much to raise arrows for the Kingdom of God...and to all the mothers to be now and in the future...}
 ''And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.''

~ Deuteronomy 6:5-7, KJV

Thursday blessings to you, my dear friends!  Enjoy this last beautiful day of the month of March...

Sharing Today...

''...When I think of the many young ladies in this world so desperate for love, I am humbled that the Lord would see fit to give me a life of true love…
I have gained the love and devotion of five special girls, and not a day goes by without one, two or all my sisters coming to give me a hug or to tell me they love and appreciate me…this is something I’m especially thankful for!''

Good morning dear friends a blessed Sunday to you!
Today I am sharing a guest post on the joys and challenges of being an older sister at my friend Rebekah's blog, A Heritage of Grace...
I hope you will join me there...{{smiles}}

Many blessings,

''In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.''  

~ Psalm 56:4

"No man can do a truer kindness in this world
than to pray for me."

~ Charles Spurgeon

Dearest friends...I am so grateful and blessed by your prayers and sweet concern for our family...
As my dear mother's due date draws nigh, the busyness in our household increases - we are currently putting the finishing touches on Little One's nursery and I hope to share pictures of our handiwork very soon...

We have yet to find out when the C-section will be scheduled for, but we will more than likely meet our precious new brother in the next three weeks or so!  How perfectly exciting it that??

Realising that another darling babe is about to join our family, all the tiresome work and busy days become small and insignificant in comparision with the incredible miracle of new life...such a wonderful gift from God!  {{smiles}}

I am thanking the Lord today...and everyday, for the joy of having sweet friends to share this precious time in our lives with, and for the love expressed in the prayers, emails and comments each of you have left!

With much love on this beautiful Thursday morning...
