Thankful Thursday on Friday...

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night...For You, O Lord, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands." Psalm 92:1-2,4
****

One~ I am thankful for all of you who have purchased a BbB doll, who have been so patient and understanding through this valley of growing pains, who have been so encouraging to Laura and myself. Who are faithful in keeping tabs on us and reading the BbB blog. Thank you!! I praise God for you!!

Two~ I am thankful for my dear husband, Keith, who puts up with me and supports whatever I do! Looks past my messy sewing table and strings on the floor, helps with supper and the children when I'm running behind. Even after working hard all day. I thank and praise God for allowing me to be Keith's wife. Even before I was saved, I told Keith that we were made for each other. Know I truly know that we were. The Lord knew even before we were formed in the womb what we would be and the children we would have together. Thank you Lord...even for the crazy times of life in this world! Pictured is a doll designed by Keith. I think he is working the male market... =)

Three~ I'm thankful for my Laura!! It was predestined that our paths would cross! I praise God for you and your pure heart just to serve Him! I would really be in quite a mess of things without you and Chris helping me! THANK YOU!! It was a joyful day on Wednesday that we finally were able to meet for the first time. Natalie looked out the window and said, "Mommy your pen pal is here!" it was just the sweetest! Laura and I mirror each other in so many ways...it's funny. But more than anything else...we are like minded in loving the Lord! Our children just blended together and I just love the Swymeler family to pieces!! Here are a few pictures...

Thank you Lord for all things!!

*There will not be free Friday this week because I'm STILL working on getting my custom orders caught up. Thanks for understanding!!

It is always nice to read someone else give thanks, because then it reminds us who read it to give thanks as well. Sometimes I get caught up in all the dailey drama and forget what is really important. Thank you for that!
I love looking at your blog to see your new creations and inspiration.

Isn't awesome how God orchestrates everything in our lives and the people He brings our way. Praise God for Laura and her servant heart.

Keep trudging with the strength of Jesus.

By the way Tina I love the Asian doll but where is Sallie Mae? Well I'll be first on your list come September 1st.

Have an awesome weekend and God's blessings be with you and Laura and your families as well.

Aloha
