A HomeGoods Find

My littlest baby girl was sick yesterday
so I stayed with her 
until her doctor's appt at 2:00pm.

I stopped by HomeGoods to kill some time before church.

I've been hitting GoodWill and have been sadly disappointed.
HomeGoods did not disappoint.

I found this great candle stick that I can 
use over and over agin.
It was $5.

A tree now, a candle later,

the aqua blue goes perfectly with my jars. 

I like.

They are treating my sweet baby for bronchiolits, 
but we are pretty sure that she has asthma.
She is on breathing treatments, 
Pulmucort twice a day and Albuterol four times a day.

With a temp of almost 102, she is still a sweet baby.

She is home with her mommy today.


I don't know if I told you, but I have been asked to speak 
at the women's retreat where I have been attending church.
We are taking a membership class (yes, Mr. H too!) and feel that this is our fit.
I will be teaching a women's Bible class in February, 
FERVENT by Priscilla Shier.

I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for this moment.

It's as I've I learned to praise him in the hallway, 
that God has begun to open doors.

To be near my children and see God's plan unfold, 
the vision He gave me 30 years ago, 
is more than I can fathom, too wonderful 
for me to contain (as said in Psalm 139).

My joy is unspeakable!


  1. Awwwwwwwwww....I hope little Harper will be feeling better...keeping her in prayer. Keeping you in prayer--I still say you and your whole family need to pick up and move here, LOLOL.

  2. Your little granddaughter is adorable...hope she is better soon! I love the quote on your wall...perfect for me right now!
    Love your new candlestick and the whole winter vignette!

  3. What a sweetheart, hope she feels well real soon.Love the window cabinet, looks awesome.Blessings Francine.

  4. Yay, Praise God for this door opening! Would I ever love to attend....if it wasn't so far down the road :) so thrilled for you!
    Bless sweet little Harper. I hope she feels better soon. Hopefully she will out grow some of her breathing issues. Our Aidan is so much better now that he's older and it's easier to keep the asthma under control.
    God bless you, sweet friend!

  5. Love the HomeGoods find! It does look great with your blue jars..Glad your little one is getting the treatment she needs...those Grands are precious! now, for the great stuff! Yay!! Hip hip hooray! I am so happy for you and the Bible study class. I knew things would fall into place. I am so glad you have found a place where you feel at home and your gifts are being used.. What a great study too.. What a blessing! "Good works all thing for the good"...Romans 8:28 especially if we are patient, wait and believe...and I know you love the things had to work out.. Bonnie I am so happy for you.. Blessings!

  6. Poor baby when they are sick it make us feel so bad.
    I am so happy for you---God is good.

  7. Oh how I love that sign, I have never seen that particular saying before. It's so true. My husband and I are waiting for a door to open right now and we have to wait patiently which is sometimes difficult. Praising him in the hallway is perfect. I hope your little one is doing better.

  8. I love that saying at the end of your post! I am so happy for you, to be blessed so abundantly after so long. Your fervent prayers have finally brought you to where you are supposed to be. that candlestick is gorgeous, and I am so partial to aqua. So sorry the baby is is all around and affecting everyone here. :-(

  9. Love the color, so pretty and it looks nice next to your other pieces. Hope she feels better soon! My oldest has asthma and it's no fun at all.


  10. I love it! I wonder if it's available at my Home Goods store.
    Poor little Harper - she's such a sweetie!
    I love Priscilla Shirer and I know the 2 of you will be a blessing to the woman of your new church.

  11. I hope your sweet little darling is feeling well soon, those breathing treatments are a miracle.

    I love the candlestick---so, so pretty! And I'm happy you have this honor with your class---you are loved!

  12. She is a darling, and glad she is better.

    I remember your dream to teach women a long time God's time.....this is so wonderful. I'm so happy for you. Hugs and prayers.

  13. Hope that she will be all OK soon. Hope too that your class goes well! xx

  14. Bonnie, I'm so happy for you being able to find your niche in your church. When you contemplated moving to TN, you probably had no idea how it would turn out but God is certainly orchestrating all this in your life. So sorry for the little one. Generally the little ones grow out of asthma. I'm glad she's home and doing better. The blue glass candle holder is amazing. So pretty with your jars. Have a great day.

  15. Bonnie! It's been a while since I dropped in...been on a little blogging break. Love your candlestick! That glass is beautiful. Dontcha just love Home Goods.

  16. Love your positivity, Bonnie! Hugs to that sweet baby and prayers! Blessed to think of you as my friend!

  17. Oh I hope that sweet girl feels better soon! I don't like for little ones to be sick! Happy that you are getting that opportunity:) God is good! Have a blessed Saturday dear friend, HUGS!

  18. Aahh, I hope this little one feels better soon. Don't ya just love Home Goods, Bonnie? It's one of my favorite stores and go there every couple of weeks. The aqua candle holder matches your jars perfectly. Great news that you'll be teaching Bible class. :)
