T-ball and chalk paint

Somebody has his second t-ball game tomorrow.  Someone LOVES it!  It is so very adorable to watch these little guys run all over the field and often times in circles!  After they hit the ball, they stand there with huge smiles and you are yelling... "Drop the bat and run... run... run."  And then about 5 seconds later they are like.. "Oh... run... yeah... run..." and then they run... and not always to a base much less first base!  LOL  Adorable.

Daddy is one of the coaches.  Little man getting his pep talk...

 Getting ready...

Taking the hit!

And he's off... and to first base!  :0)

It is simply precious.  The joy he gets from being there... from his hat... from his baseball shirt and shoes (and he is getting baseball pants today)!  Pure, sweet, simple boy joy.  It is priceless.

And I mustered up some courage and started a little project that is bringing me joy...

This tired little stool was wanting to be refreshed... it told me so... many times!

Here is a sneak peek at her now... in the process of becoming refreshed!
My lifted soul, being refreshed in the process, is a bonus!

And here is my buddy... my painting buddy.  Although you can see he was NOT wanting to paint.
Lucky for him, I can multi-task!
I can throw the ball down the hall 20 times while using my fabulous Annie Sloan chalk paint (that has been WAITING for me to use for 11 months now... yes... the receipt in the box was April 2011... sad... so sad) on my tired little stool and sing praises at the same time!  LOL

Speaking of chalk paint and joy... you MUST check out one of my favorite blogs at http://missmustardseed.com/2012/03/ascp-prize-package-ticket-giveaway/ and try to win this amazing and generous gift!  Good luck!  If you win... you must share with me! :0)

Have a blessed weekend.
Love, Dawn

Last Chance

How can we look at this face and say, "No... not right now."

Her last chance.  Host and adoption or the streets.

My heart is reeling for her today.  My soul is crying out to the Father to touch someone's heart...

I can't adopt them all!  I am only one person.

Father, desperation comes up my throat and my soul cries out to you.  Open the heavens and shine your light on the path before this precious girl.  Open the heart of the family you have set in motion to become her forever family and shower them with Your favor and provision and courage and blessings!  Speak clearly to them Lord and reach your right hand down and pull her up out of the traps the enemy has waiting for her!  You are MIGHT TO SAVE and I KNOW you have a familywaiting for this precious child of yours.  Redeem her and make her life a testimony to your love and power and mercy and grace.  I praise you LORD.  I praise you for the glory that is about to unfold in her life!  Do your thing LORD AND BE GLORIFIED!!!!!!  In the Holy and Worthy name of your Son, in the name of Jesus... Amen... let it be so!

If you, or someone you know, is interested in changing the life of precious Luda... please message me, or email me at allfromhim@comcast.net

Hope in Hosting... and LIFE IN LOVE

Five weeks can change an entire life forever.  So can one decision.  A decision to host an orphan is one that shakes the heavens... gives hope to a heart... and brings glory to God.

The deadline to host with Project One Forty Three is in May.  This is March.  Time.  Time to make a difference that will last for generations.
Please turn off music on player on the right hand side of the blog before playing this video.  And please share it with whoever you feel led to share it with.

Thank you.

We have had some birthdays around here last month.  My birthday was the 3rd, Dusty's was the 4th, and Marc's was the 20th!   Not many pictures from my birthday.  I know.  I don't deserve to own my camera lately.  It was low key but we did go bowling and that could have been some cute photos!  Boo.

Here are a few of mine and some pictures of Marc's big day!  We had a small party as everyone we knew was out of town!  This happens every year for Abby in July too... hmmmmm... starting to wonder about our friends????  LOL
