Cup of Joy...Thursdays???

My apologies for missing this Sunday's post!! now...on with the show... I was so tickled by Sammy in the above picture...Our doggie .."Kisses"...hangs out behind this chair..and Sammy must have been stopping by for a visit... Kisses enjoyed his company too..i tried to get some pictures with both of them...but Cammy's batteries were fading...
I have been working on the gluten free baked goods... biscuits weren't so good...but somehow..the same recipe...cut into triangles...and with the name 'SCONE'...Gluten free..doesn't taste so bad after all!! These are surely our favorites!!
A visit to our neighborhood PetSmart is always a great field trip for our guys.... they are so fascinated by this wall of fish tanks...
especially Sammy....he could stay there for hours
(and can you resist 2 stripey tees...ahhh...I love stripes!!)

So here is our Cup of Joy... i decided to use 2 verses..because..i couldn't decide... First..the one up top.....the new first song on my blog, God Speaking, has spoken in depth to me over the past few months..take some time to listen... as some of the lyrics say...

"He'll do..and He'll use...whatever He wants to...To tell us 'I Love You'...".....I am having trouble coming up with the right words for this post to describe my thoughts...some of you know our life with these two boys...and to others i have been vague..

but for goodness sake..those canvases haven't gone on sale yet...

when they do you will see the picture i see...i promise...

but for now..God has been LIVING ...ABIDING...and so very PRESENT in our HOUSE...our HOME...He lives in the details..the mundane...the glorious...the everyday...and i am so JOYFULL that He does...He is Bold..He is Silly...He is Comforting...He is Evident...He is Mighty...He is Creative...He is

Always...Here with me....or there with me....or where ever i may be...happy..sad..waivering...He is here!! He dwells!! And i hope this home is hospitable to Him...that He feels welcomed...that He takes the extra time to stay and let me know....something I needed to know....It's okay!!

So now the second verse.... OUR net is so very FULL!!!!!!!!!!!

How full is yours???


I was given this windchime several years ago by a close friend..

and it still hangs in our backyard...it is actually one of Sammy's favorite sights and sounds in the yard... and this touches on an earlier post where i was tagged....What was i doing 10 years ago?....hmmm...well, i never knew i would have such a wonderful life now..then....it was good then....but never enough...my husband...always refers to his life as having several lifetimes in it...and i now refer to my life the same...10 years ago..2 beautiful, amazing children...THESE children... This wasn't even a dream for myself..I am so glad my God had bigger plans...

Have a Love-Fully day!!!

I agree with your mom... :o) I'm so glad you updated, I've been checking. And so glad there was a good portion to read! I've missed you- we're home now so call me if you get the chance to catch up? We've got no plans (refusing to get back in the car for a couple of days :o) ). Hope you have a great today!
