NOAH IS THRILLED BEYOND MEASURE. MOST OF YOU WILL REMEMBER THAT HIS LITTLE BIKE BROKE A FEW WEEKS AGO. WELL, THE DAY AFTER HIS BIKE BROKE, I CALLED HIM TO DO SOMETHING...TAKE A NAP OR SOMETHING...AND HE SAID, "LET'S GO AND BUY ME A BIG BIKE, THEN TAKE A NAP." =) NOAH WAS DREAMING OF A NEW, BLUE, "BIG" BIKE!
ALSO, HE KEPT TALKING ABOUT GETTING A BIKE, AND SO I TOLD HIM TO PRAY FOR A BIKE...AND SO HE BOWED HIS LITTLE HEAD AND SAID SOMETHING LIKE, "JESUS THANK YOU THAT ....I MEAN PLEASE HELP JESUS TO GET ME A BIKE THAT'S NOT BROKEN...AMEN!!" IT WAS SOO CUTE!
THE NEXT DAY, SOME OF OUR DEAR FRIENDS FROM OHIO E-MAILED US THAT THEY WERE SENDING US SOME MONEY TO GET NOAH A NEW BIKE!! WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS WHAT THIS MEANS TO ME AS A MOMMY!!! SO LATER THAT WEEK, WE WENT AND BOUGHT A CUTE BIKE FOR NOAH. I HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES AS I WRITE THIS, FOR NOAH IS SOOO EXCITED THAT GOD HAS ANSWERED HIS PRAYER AND THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE A BROKEN BIKE NOW! HE HAS A NICE, NEW BIKE =) WE ARE ASKING GOD TO RICHLY BLESS OUR FRIENDS THAT IT MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR NOAH TO HAVE HIS VERY OWN, "BIG-LITTLE" BIKE! =)
~Some of you were curious, and wanted to see a close-up of my new shoes that I got for our anniversary! There are a light blue leather, with a beige ribbon woven through the holes in the shoes. (I can change the ribbon when I want to!) Phillip knows me well enough to know that I would rather have a new pair of shoes, than anything else he could have gotten me! =) My skirt is one of the ones that Phillip got me in Ecuador for $2.50...and it matches perfectly with my new shoes. =)~
PRAISE THE LORD...MY PARENTS HAD PURCHASED A YEAR'S SUBSCRIPTION TO TASTE OF HOME FOR ME, BUT SO FAR, I'VE ONLY RECEIVED ONE ISSUE. I HAVE BEEN SAD, FOR MY APRIL/MAY ISSUE IS ABOUT 2 MONTHS LATE COMING. SO I HAVE BEEN ASKING JESUS TO PLEASE HELP ME TO GET A TASTE OF HOME MAG. WELL....TODAY, I DID NOT GET THE APRIL/MAY ISSUE (THAT'S HOPEFULLY STILL COMING MY WAY) BUT I GOT 2 OF THE JUNE/JULY ISSUES! YEA! THERE WAS SHOUTING IN THE CAMP WHEN I SAW A T.O.H. MAGAZINE HAD ARRIVED! =) GOD IS AWESOME!
