Oh December!

December is a the most exciting time of year in our family. 
Of course there's Christmas,
and 3 birthdays,
(including mine!:)
the new baby is due to be born!!
Sibling #10 is due on December 20th!
So this year, we have the amazing blessing of remembering our Savior's birth AND the birth of our new addition.
God is so good!!

Yesterday, my sister Chantel and I spent 6 hours painting our room. 
I'll be posting more pictures later of before and after :)
It was a lot of work, but I'm sooo happy with the results!

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness."

The LORD is my shepherd;
         I shall not want.
  He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
         He leads me beside the still waters.
  He restores my soul;
         He leads me in the paths of righteousness
         For His name’s sake.
 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
         I will fear no evil;
         For You are with me;
         Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
         You anoint my head with oil;
         My cup runs over.
  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
         All the days of my life;
  And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
         Psalm 23

It's snowing.
Yeah, you heard that right.
The birds are singing so sweetly, you look out the window, and BAM it's snowing.
Oh well! There's a reason for everything! :)
(But I'm sure looking forward to sunshine!)

" Wait on the Lord, and be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart."

I like how this guy thinks. The world around us is constantly pressuring for us to find a boyfriend and to do whatever it takes to do so.
It's relieving to know that God has my future all planned out for me. I just need to listen to Him and live in a way that honours Him. 
We don't have to live life worrying about what others think.
We don't have to cave to the pressures that the others give.
 We need to trust that God has our future in His hands,
because He does! :)

I really do appreciate your feedback.
Thank you for your sweet comments,

so about yesterday...
I feel really bad about missing a day, but it was so crazy busy around my house.
I'm gonna do my best to keep going with my goal. 
Its weird, but I always tend to give up on my goal the moment I find myself failing.
I think now's a good time to change that! :)

Today consisted of burning my fingers  making these flowers.
I'm really happy with how they turned out!

On a different note, this is how my Dad and brothers decided to remove the christmas tree from our house...

Yup, they plan on using it in the fireplace :)
Oh, how I love them!

My apologies for the awesome blurry picture. On the bright side; my goal is still being achieved! :) Hope you all had a fantastic day!

"Oh, listen to love and let pride hit the ground
If joy is the armor, it can't be broken down
But if hate is the fuel, no one will win
But when we love ‘til we're empty
That's when life begins"

day two.

My goal for the month week, is to post every day.
One of my goals this year is stop being so lazy when it comes to writing posts. 
So hopefully I can stay focused, (and organized) enough to complete my goal!

Happy New Year!!
I can hardly believe that it's 2013! 
Wishing you all a very blessed new year!
On another note,
Today marks one whole year since this I created this blog.
I am so thankful for each and everyone of you.
I'm thankful for the sweet comments you guys have written.
I'm sorry for not keeping up with this blog, this past year has been so crazy busy!
This year it's going to change.
I'm going to try my absolute best to really put an effort into this blog.
Here's to a brand new year!

Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
In working or in waiting, another year with Thee.
Another year of progress, another year of praise,
Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.

Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
Another year of training for holier work above.
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.
