Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I agree with Sandra. . .
In memory of our beloved son by Becky at Sweet Cottage Dreams. This post had me crying to the point where I was actually sobbing and found it hard to write the comment. Becky and her husband lost their son Jordan on the 4th of February 2009. I don't know how Becky was able to write this post and my heart goes out to her during this awful time.

Favorite photo from last week:
I haven't taken the time to download please forgive me and come back soon for some great photo's!

Lesson learned the past few days:
That no matter how much I try, I can't always protect my children from the hardships and horrible things that surround us on a daily basis. I agree again with Sandra.
Many of you read my post from a few days ago it is so hard being a mom. I don't know what season of my life has been the hardest. My young sisters remember that you will always be a mommy. No matter what even if they are 30 your still thier mommy. I am determined to still be thier mommy. There are times that I need a mommy and mine isn't. I know that might sound strange but I do.
And that I am not supposed to worry that God is in control. I am still learning this one.

On my Prayer List:
My husband
My daughter and her family
Becky and her family at Sweet Cottage Dreams

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

Psalms 56:3
When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee. (NIV)
