BIBLE VERSES ABOUT GOD’S MERCY

Words cannot express how thankful I am for God's Mercy. It truly endures forever. I thought it would be nice to make a list of Bible verses that mention it. Not all of them are below because there are 474 places in the King James Bible where it talks about His Mercy. If you haven't read my post about the Greatest Gift In The World Please Click Here. To start here is the whole chapter of Psalm 136. It is…

OUR TRIP TO EDWARDS APPLE ORCHARD IN ILLINOIS

Our family took an afternoon trip out to Edwards Apple Orchard in Poplar Grove, IL during our trip to Wisconsin last month. We had such a fun time exploring the old farm. There is so much to do at this location. Look at how lovely the old barn is! We probably spent an hour looking through their mini market and HUGE store filled with gorgeous farmhouse decor all located inside the old barn. They also sell fresh pressed apple cider…

BE THANKFUL AND COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

SOMETIMES WE NEED TO COUNT OUR BLESSINGS: My house has become a home. A place to rest and recharge. A place to live and create memories in. It isn't the cleanest place, but it is ours.

OCTOBER 2017 RECAP – WHERE DOE’S THE TIME GO?

So this is the first post in a new series I'm starting. I want to start a habit of writing a monthly recap. To sort of create a diary or record of what happened and how I'm making it in life. Hopefully, they'll be short and sweet. Probably filled with my random thoughts and rants. But I feel like writing really helps me get through what I'm going through. I've never been good at it, but it makes me feel…

AMBROSE’S MONTHLY BABY PHOTOS 1-12 MONTHS

Ambrose's Monthly Baby Photos I love seeing age progression photos. Especially babies, because they change so much in the first year. I didn't do any monthly photos with my first baby. I probably took a photo every second to make up for it though. For my second boy, I did monthly baby photos next to a stuffed animal to show how he grew. You can see that post with the baby photos here. For my last baby boy, I decided…

If you're a new mom you may have wondered how you'll breastfeed your baby in public.....Well you could wear a baggy T-shirt 3 sizes too big like my mom proudly did (every mom did in the 90's).
