Today...

Today, Kade watched snow fall for the first time. The boys played in it until their hands got too cold.

Today, the boys told me to write this letter…
Santa,
My name is Drew, and my brother’s name is Kade. We want a puppy dog for Christmas. Kade wants hay, a red hay baler, dirt, and snow. I want dog toys, dog food, and dog water. We love you- Drew and Kade
Today, I can finally quit making phone calls and searching Craig's List for Santa. Last night we finalized the plans, and the boys are getting her for Christmas. Drew wants to name her Eva. Kade wants to name her Rice Crispy. Wish "Santa" good luck trying to take care of her for 3 weeks until Christmas. Any volunteers? LOL!

Today, I am wishing it was Friday. I am going with my sister-in-law and friend, Belinda, to Oklahoma City. I can’t wait to visit and laugh with the girls, go Christmas shopping, and spend time in God's Presence. You can check it out here.


Today, I woke-up, and while I was fellowshipping with God, I felt dry. I felt like I couldn't break through the veil and step into His Presence; I DON'T LIKE FEELING THAT WAY (especially because I know it is a "feeling" and not the "Truth"). I have been struggling with that "feeling" for the last week. Today God showed me Isaiah 58:11; I prayed it. I clung to it, and God manifested it in my heart this morning.
"The Lord will guide you (Dawn) continually, giving you (Dawn) water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You (Dawn) will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring."

Today I think you will be blessed if you read what Charla said about worry HERE.

Snow....children love it, we OLDER adults tolerate it, but would rather not have to go out in it.

Hi Dawn! I am stopping by from Lynette's blog as well!
Ok, so I have a 2.5 year old blue heeler myself. And she is super high maintenance. Even to this day she is a LOT to handle. Don't get me wrong, they are very sweet and good to kids but they have a ton of energy and can be super mischievious!! Just felt I better throw that warning out there as a fellow blue heeler owner!
Both names are super cute! Ours is named Kirra. :) Cute blog!
