This weekend Evangeline has her end of year Ballet Performance.  Its very exciting!  We had final dress rehearsal last week and they girls look amazing.  I’m totally taking tissues!  She is doing a contempory ballet dance to “FALLING SLOWLY” from the movie Once.  Perfection.

coming up in a few weeks we have our final DAUGHTERS @ The River event.  We’re having a Christmas Festivi – TEA night – celebrating Christmas and tea things.  will be lots of fun.  I love our River ladies.  The above two are potential fb flyers i made – i love the above one, it so appeals to my visualness, though we chose the lower because of its Christmasy theme.




i love when an author speaks the same language as you – and jud wilhite is that author for me!  i have his other books EYES WIDE OPEN and PURSUED and love them both.  in fact i had 5 copies of Eyes Wide Open and gave 4 away.  that good.  Torn: Trusting God When Life Leaves You in Pieces is a book like that for me again i think.  When reading it i could think of about 5 people who should read it.  Torn contains practical and biblical advice for dealing with depression, learning to suffer in the context of community, and fighting for joy in the midst of suffering.  Its a great book that is biblically grounded and engaging to read.  Its real, raw, grace-filled, hope filled and totally made me cry in public at ballet the other arvo as i was reading about Eric & Jayne and their forgiveness journey.




love this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

happy birthday billy graham – he’s one of my heroes – i love the way he has lived "to know God and make Him known" – to live a consistent witness to the reality and goodness of God and to consistently preach the gospel.  he lives that first quote – he is a bible read by the world to show people that God is real.  i have a good collection of his books and biographies on my bookshelf.

"Before the Resurrection of Christ, the Holy Spirit came upon individuals only on certain occasions for special tasks. But now, after the Resurrection, Christ through the Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of every believer to give us supernatural power in living our daily lives." ~ Rev. Billy Graham






and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.
