A Birthday, a Praise and a Celebration!!

We had a birthday recently.  Our third born - Matthew turned 17!!  Crazy how fast the time has gone!!

 Matt is going to firefighting school and is turning into a fine young man with so much potential!!  We are so proud of him!!
He is crazy about his tiny sister and she is crazy about him!! She just had to help with his cake - cutie-pie helper!!

On another note - a couple of months ago (when I wrote about one particular no-good, very-bad day) I wrote that my hubby's company had announced that they were selling and Wayne would no longer have a job after Christmas.  Well, Hubby began the job search and put out lots of feelers and resumes and while we've had lots of encouraging comments - the hiring process has been very slow (like everywhere around the country right now!!).  My sweetie has been very confident and sure of God's plan (unlike me who struggles with fretting - ahem!!).  He has been my rock during this time, for sure!!!  Anyway, Wayne called me from work the other day with an exciting announcement - the doctors that own his company took a final vote and the result was to NOT sell!!  So Hubby was told his job is secure and the decision was to reorganize from within instead (which I'm told will be very good)!!  Oh my, my heart has been praising God!!  He has a plan - Wayne is sure God put him in this position for a reason and sees his job as a mission.

In celebration my sweetie gave me an early Christmas gift.  It came in the mail and when I opened it - this envelope was inside:
Tickets to go to the Handel's Messiah!!!  I cried!!!  I have always wanted to go to the Symphony and this is possibly the best thing to ever see there (in my mind anyway!!!)  I can't wait - I get to dress up - go to dinner with my prince and listen to a chorus of beautiful voices raised in praise to the King of Kings!!!!  What could be better?!!!!

Hope your day is blessed!!!

My whole house is very earth toned. We just painted the kitchen with a little splash of color last weekend. It was sage. So it is a big change.I needed some color and I really like. it.

Thanks for your sweet comment!

I have been real busy getting the Children's program ready for tomorrow night. I am crashing tonight!
