for Kara's family

Will you pray with me tonight? For the precious family of Kara. She went to heaven yesterday after a long battle with cancer. Her story is one of victory, though, because she knew the Father. Her husband and four sweetlings know Him, too, and they are in need of our prayers.

Here is a post from her blog that shares a small portion of her story.
Thanks so much for praying with me ♥

undaunted radience

"The surf that distresses the ordinary swimmer produces in the surf-rider the super-joy of going clean through it. Apply that to our own circumstances, these very things -- tribulation, distress, persecution, produce in us the super-joy; they are not things to fight. We are more than conquerors through Him in all these things, not in spite of them, but in the midst of them.

Undaunted radiance is not built on anything passing, but on the love of God that nothing can alter. The experiences of life, terrible or monotonous, are impotent to touch the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." ~OC

Wow, how I love the way Uncle Oswald shakes a pom-pom ♥

a talk with licorice

Cutest sweetling moment of the afternoon...

Meredith headed out into the back yard, calling to Ila and me that she was going to let our lab, Licorice, out to run. Ila ran for the door and asked M to wait until she changed clothes so she could help. (Ila was full-on decked out in her Rainbow Dash costume and said changing process would take a little time.) M said she would wait and went to hang out by the kennel. A few minutes later, I looked out to see M deep in conversation with Licorice ^_^ She was talking a mile a minute, using hand gestures, and pausing (paws-ing? hee hee) every few seconds to throw back her head and laugh.

First of all, I was enthralled and delighted by how animated M was. What a joy to watch! And further, I have not yet asked her what she and Licorice were discussing, but I cannot wait to hear that story. I imagine that it will be one for the books ♥
