The goods

I want to remember the gifts that my husband chose for my birthday this year so I am going to record them here. I can not count how many times the Lord has used this blog to remind me of how abundantly He has blessed us, mainly relationally and spiritually, and in every area FAR BEYOND OUR DESERVING. So this is so I won't forget how my husband really listens and knows me...

This print from "fancyprints" on etsy.com (except mine had our initials and wedding date, plus green birds and gray background pattern)
This print was SO MEANINGFUL because he proposed to me at "our tree" in a state park where he had carved my initials when we dated. We have visited our tree several times, including when I was pregnant with Lydia Joy (pictured below). Can't wait to get it back from the framer and put it above our bed.Love my new gen-u-ine cowgirl boots. My man is getting me ready for the farm life and these will far exceed my polka dotted rain boots with the hole in the toe. (PS: Cowboy boots are COMFY!!) He probably envisions me pulling weeds in these. I envision boots + short floral sundress + flower garden. And last, the necklace below that was found on dayspring.com. Because as a child of God and a mother of three, all I really need to know is that I am saved "By Grace Alone". This necklace has become a permanent attachment to my neck. Could I ever be reminded enough?? I am so thankful for my sweet, sweet family. I really love doing life together with them! They know and love me well! Thank you for the celebrations!!
