oh, where to even begin??

So much to blog, so little time! ;-)
Okay, I may ramble a bit again, but apparently some of you (October at least) doesn't mind that.

Today was a wonderful day for me. I had four prayer requests answered in less than 24 hours!! I feel compelled to share, so keep on reading if you want to know the juicy details!

First of all, we got money! YES! It was that unexpected, right-when-you-need-it kind of money that just flies into your lap. My grandparents always know when we're ont he brink of disaster, I think. I know we all have direct links to God, but their reception is very clear, and they get these impulses to just do things.

Okay, second one: my baby pooped. Yes, it is a big deal. Breastfed babies usually poop every day, but little Oliver had gone several days and was being very fussy and gassy. Not like him at all. I prayed about it and he pooped. So thank you, God, for that. :-)

Third, Trevor initiated his potty time today! That's a big deal for me!! He didn't pee in his pull-up all day at pre-K (3 hours) and his teacher said that he asked to go twice. YEA for small miracles.

Fourth, I had this dream about someday doing photography from home, as a part-time job. I LOVE doing it, and any extra money could certainly help our family. I figured this would just be one of those unrealized dreams because, really, how many people can do that? But two dear friends asked me to pray about it. And, voila, now I have access to a SUPER nice digital camera. One that I would had to sell my furniture to buy! Puzzle pieces, just sliding around and coming together.

Ask and you shall receive, right? Well, Lord, I'm gonna keep on asking, and feel free to keep on pouring out the blessings! I'm just basking in the glow today. And, even on my not-so-answered-days, I love the Lord for who He is and what He does and how much He loves me. He loves to lavish gifts on His children. If we know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more does He know? :-)

that is awesome!

my youngest is also a rare pooper. started out normal like all the others and then went to pooping about once a week. on about the 6th day i know what you mean. i felt so bad for him.

good luck with the photography - i love it too, but don't feel the pull right now to pursue - must be in your heart for a reason!

yea! on potty training. when's your 2 year old's birthday? we just hit a complete stop in our training. went back to diapers and everything.

oh and the money! yea! yea! yea! we call it miracle money!

I can't really chime in on the...ummm...biological functions, but congratulations all the same!

I'm so glad you are seeing God's hand move in your life. Reading your praises was such a blessing to ME today. Thanks for sharing!

C'mon, "NO" is an answer too right? God always answers. Sometimes we party...some times we pout. =)
