A Glimpse of February

Surprise!  Two days in a row!
I guess I'm really needing to connect.
At least, I've moved from the sofa to the chair today.
That's a big step.

In the almost two years that we've been here, 
I've done little decorating. 

I had hoped to share my "pink" bedroom, 
which is actually gray, 
during Valentine's week.

I didn't add anything except the side table and lamp, 
but it made me feel good to make up the bed
if only for photos.
Hee! Hee!


I used pink in my wedding. 
It's always been my favorite color of choice
as most of you well know.


I think, 
pearls 
porcelain 
and pink!


I love the ambience here. 


This decor always makes me smile.
It will always be my favorite room. 

I had intended to share everyday in February with you, 
but of course, life happened.
So, you'll just get a glimpse.

Somewhere between then and now, 
this little girl grew up. 


When did this happen?  How did this happen?


This is my niece ready to go to her 8th grade Sweetheart dance. 
I can still see my little girl behind the make up and glam.


She has a piece of my heart, 


as these have my heart.

We kept the girls last Friday for the the mommies 
and daddies to have some time together. 


They had so much fun! 


Grandy enjoyed some one on one time with 
our oldest baby girl.


David is beginning to find some connection. 
He has been officially appointed Youth Pastor. 
The thought scares me to death. 
Being a PK, I know the expectations
the church has for its leaders.

This is a big step for him. 
He's an introvert by nature,
but a quiet, strong leader. 

It's intiminading when you're surrounded 
by seminary pastors, doctors and professors, 
educators and the educated. 
I told him, "They have the education.  You have the experience."

Doing youth ministry in the big city is not like 
doing it in a small town among a core group of leaders 
you started doing ministry with 35 years ago.
It's a challenge that we are looking at as opportunity.


These kids are precious. 
They are small, but mighty warriors for God. 
God is growing the church and that is exciting to watch.


It's not been an easy February.

This is how we do crazy when the whole family is sick and shut-in for days. 

Gonna start speaking some positive affirmations DAILY!

  1. Oh, what a fun post! Loved all the pics of your family and I totally love your bedroom! I can see why it's a favorite room for you! Praise God your son is doing what God has called him to do! Where would we be without people like him and his precious family! Those kids are mighty in spirit!

  2. I love that positive quote at the end of your post . . . we need to remember that all through the day. Your husband can be enriched with that each time the enemy tells him that he is not educated and prepared for his new appointment. God puts us exactly where He wants us to be. He knows who we are, inside and out and He knows the possibilities within us, to shine :)

  5. Love the room....it says "Bonnie" all over it!
    Oh the sweet Littles! They do light us up :)
    It's been a rough Winter in this house. We have been sick off and on for too long. I'm sick again....in bed sick :( and I'm not liking it at all!!
    Certainly understand the feeling of inadequacy of an education. I felt it a lot in my job. I'd shake in my boots every time I had to teach a Vice President, Administrator or RN unit director. Yikes! (but it all worked out, and they learned something!)
    God bless you, my friend! Hope your evening is restful.

  10. Even though I have seen most of these pics on fb, I loved them even more in this post. I'm so happy David is stepping out of his comfort zone and answering God's call...I think young people need the perspectives of us older folks too! :) I love the positive pic at the end. We all could stand to speak that over our own lives every day! HUGS!

  14. Your Pink bedroom is pretty, Bonnie. It feels cozy and welcoming, and I like the bedspread. Your niece looks lovely in her dress for the Sweetheart Dance. It's the same color I wore for my Junior Prom. : )

    I hope you are enjoying these March days.

    love, ~Sheri
