Cards made, Praising God, Meeting Blogger

A week ago daughter and Grand daughter went to church with me. Grand daughter made the decision to accept Jesus into her heart on Wednesday and today at church she rec'd a "white" rose. It's just AMAZING!!! It's HUGE and I'm so Thankful! Continued prayers for her Mom and Dad as they aren't "there"...yet...
Finished up my Valentine cards and Valentine swap goodies. Now to get them in the mail.

Hubby and I went to a sale, rather late in the day and it was 10.00 bag time..these are some of the things I picked up. Over 50 goodies for 10.00 ~ not bad !!!




Friday while working at HQ, a sweet gal was taking about where she sells and that she has a blog...so I meet Laurel from http://chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com It's always FUN to meet another blogger. Stop by her blog...she has awesome ideas about decorating with "junk"...
Tomorrow no school for Grand daughter so we'll be hanging out and doing a few errands.
It was -19 on Friday...can you say ...Burrrrrrrrrrr! Much better today, 5 above :) "Why do I live here"???
Warmly,
deb

Deb, the news about your Granddaughter was the best thing I've heard all day! Every christian grandparent's dream was realized for you this week!

What wonderful news another child saved by the grace of our Lord and Savior. One of the greatest blessing a grandparent could every hope for. Praying very hard for her parents. Love the $10 grab bag items, I bet that was so much fun. Blessings, Vicky

Dear Deb,
To have your precious granddaughter give her heart to Jesus right there in your church is priceless. That should be something every grandma, mother and on be a part of. Precious moment.
I bet I could stuff a sack for 10.00...I love those sweet little violet plates and of course the old pictures.
Have A Sugar Sweet Day and I will pray your granddaughter leads her parents to the altar...the bible says unless we humble ourselves as children...
THANK YOU FOR SHARING THAT...IT JUST KEEPS SPRING ALIVE IN MY HEART.
Simply Debbie

Great news about your granddaughter-rejoicing with you!!!

Queenie said...

That is awesome news Deb...praise the Lord! Your grandaughter is a doll...she looks so much like you and your daughter.

All those Goodies for 10 bucks... what a deal :) We haven't been to any garage sales since early December...there haven't been any since all of the cold weather started, but it won't be long and garage sale season will be in full swing...I can hardly wait!

Your Valentine's cards are darling that you made...girl, I honestly don't know how you do it all..all I know is you're good! Well, It's been great visiting with you again...talk to you again soon :)
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Deb,this is such wonderful news! I am very happy for you and praying for the others. I have been wanting to answer your email, but I am having computer problems. I can't access my mailbox. So frustrating and I don't know what to do about it:( Twyla

Angela said...

So happy for your granddaughter and for you! About a month ago my ten year old grandson accepted Christ as his Savior too. I was able to share that with my dad and talk to him more about how important that is...he doesn't know the Lord, but he has finally gotten to the place of talking about it. He is 85.

This is the news ever. I am so happy for you my dear friend!!!!

Creative Breathing said...

Deb, I am such a lucky person to have a Valentine made by you! It is just as vintage as can be, and I just love it! I decided to look at them as they come in the hopes not to confuse who made which! You are so kind in sending the extra Valentines. You have brought such a smile to my day! Thank you so much for participating in my last swap. I will treasure your Valentine always! Elizabeth

Kathleen Grace said...

Praise God for your grandaughters decision! What a wonderful day:>)

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Hey Deb, I missed you and wondered if all was OK. I guess life just gets in the way. So glad you stopped in, you will have to let us know how your sale went, you said it was going to be cold so you were unsure of the turn out.
