sharing the blessings of my day with you / a Baby shower card

Pin It
 Hi all, Its a cold rainy winter's day here but very warm at heart.   First Ben is safe and well in Nepal we spoke to him on Skype from Kathmandu where they were enjoying a few days rest and look around, they are now back into teaching, He looked and sounded really happy and has not been sick with the change of food etc. Here is a picture he sent us of his grade 3 students. This makes me so happy!! we printed it out and put it on the fridge with Beth's pic from India last year and I say a little prayer every time i look at it. This was our first blessing....

I love reading biblical novels and so dose my brother Darren we get really excited when we get together and talk about these books.... so I get a parcel in the mail today with a book inside for me! "wives of David" trilogy book 3 on Bathsheba and some awesome piano playing music that his son dose and records on disc but the most powerful thing in that parcel was reading his letter. His last line said...Wishing you all the best of happiness and God's grace and blessing be upon you my beautiful sister, sincerely your loving brother Dak.... (which is our childhood nick name for him) this had a huge impact on me as I have not really shared with you the family struggles I have had while growing up, his letter made my heart peaceful and happy. my second blessing ....
It is my goal some day to share my experience of how I came through family struggles, taking these struggles into my marriage which was very damaging, crashing, dealing with panic attacks and fears in my life and coming out the other end knowing that all along I am Gods beloved. Which leads me to my third blessing.... my counselor! if you have not seen his button on the left side bar of my blog and are in need please do so! This man through Gods grace bought me from a very dark place of anger, control and panic. When I was at one of my lowest he simply said "I can help you!" and for me that was one of my truing points. I was so excited as I talked with him today and he shared with me that he is now doing Skype counseling world wide! what an amazing way to help others outside of our small valley area in Australia!  If you feel touched or impressed to find out more don't put it off! God has given this man the very powerful gift of healing our mind, body and spirit ...one text I know Tony encouraged me with many times was from 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. I thank God for each day for what He has done in my life through Tony. This was a key factor in the re-commitment of our wedding vows just this Christmas past and I was very honored to have him and his wife there for that. Click on his button and links below for more info...


This is Tony's approach......  Holistic counseling and life-coaching is a life-changing process that looks at the deeper aspects of your life bringing healing and restoration and new life to the surface. We work on every aspect of your life, body, mind, soul and spirit gaining access to the root of the problem and empowering you to find the freedom and life that you deserve. This powerful proven process brings results for depression, anxiety, panic attacks grief and  loss and a whole range of other emotional difficulties.
Skype counseling and life-coaching available worldwide.

Lastly my beautiful boss is going to be a granny for the first time and here is what I made her for their baby shower....

Isn't it so cute!! I had so much fun making it.... lots of love goes into the things I make. I like to pray blessings for those people as I create and place each part together.
This is not my original design. here is the link for the baby crib pattern  http://www.cricut.com/messageboard/tm.aspx?m=1761142&mpage=1&key=&#1761142

If you want this to fit inside a 12 x 12 box you will have to re-size the crib pattern a little smaller, I had to learn this the hard way! enjoy
Blessings to you



 and a last thought
Listen to advice and accept instruction, 
that you may gain wisdom in the future.
 Many are the plans in the mind of a man, 
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. 
Proverbs 19: 20-21

great project! the video includes "English transcribed" subtitles, they don't match what you are saying at all, it is really quite hilarious! I have never seen this on your videos before and I wondered if you knew it was included.

Thank you so much for this post. I believe in God's perfect timing it was meant for me to read. Tears were streaming down my face as I was reading it as I believe we have had similar pasts and this was an answer to my prayer. I will be looking into the counseling you mentioned.

Hugs,
Your sister in Christ

I too had hard growing up experiences which came with me into adulthood. I thank God I found a counselor too. He was the best thing that could have happened to me, as I had never shared my story with anyone. Now, it's easy to talk about it. I have put it behind me (for the most part)and am enjoying life so much more. I do recommend anyone who needs help to seek it out! You are worth it! I'm so glad Ben is well and loving his teaching.Can't wait to see the pix from base camp! Thanks for sharing and Love the crib project! Hugs, Jess

I have fallen in love with this darling crib and followed the double link and ordered the pattern from the original link...will probably have it next week and hope to get one made for a friend's grandson (who is now nearly 9 mos old - but better late than nothing at all! Love hearing about your son and his adventures. Best wishes to you for continuing your quest to wellness. Obviously your husband has been a great support to you as well as your kids, and your brother.
