Also in January, my sister, Lauren (my step sister, not to confuse anyone), called from Hawaii and wanted to move back to Cali (back with us). After much prayer and thought, we accepted. She arrived Sunday, Jan. 31 but her stay with us only lasted a mere 43 hours before she left to visit friends in Big Bear. Two weeks to the day she left for Big Bear she broke my heart when she told me she had decided to stay with said friends. I'm in prayer for her every day. (Obviously there's more to the story, just please pray for her with me if you feel so inclined)
February has been brutal on my emotions, gentle on my spirit and genourous on our finances. The way God works never ceases to amaze me and I am more grateful with each passing day that I've found salvation at the cross!
Another friend's daughter invited the boys to her birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's and I was informed that she was going to Disneyland the following week and could use a place to put all the things she bought with her birthday money so I whipped up this Tinkerbell (her favorite) bag and stuck $15.00 in it!
