the Lord's leading me to help in Sunday School this year mainly so that I can be with son #3

my long-time favorite devotional by Amy Carmichael, Edges of His Ways. I highly recommend any of her writings, but this little book has been a special friend to me

  1. Kit,
    I LOVE your Blog (and the pics of your cutie pies!) i wish that life would afford the opportunity of getting to officially catch up in person one day!
    Yes, your "thankfuls" definitely have encouraged ME! I started a running list, too, that i am already able to notice affecting my attitude. maybe that is why HE admonishes us to "practice" this??? Well, this, and it encouraged me at a very pivotal time in our lives, currently. THANK YOU!

  2. Tabitha,
    Thank you so much for your comment, and your recommendation earlier of the Fly Lady. It was so funny that you mentioned it, because I had just heard of her somewhere on the web the day before! Love what she has to say.
    I'm thankful for how the Father works among us to encourage each other. From your blog, I'm amazed with all that you have going on...animals, kids, house, school...whew!!! Such an encouragement to see how the Lord is faithful.
    love to all of you!
