A Weekend of Blessings

Friday and Saturday I was able to go with friends and family to a Christian women's conference put on by Lifeway called "Deeper Still", that was held in Atlanta. The speakers were Beth Moore, Kay Arthur and Priscilla Shirer. It was simply amazing! This is the 2nd time in a year that I've gotten to hear Beth Moore speak! I just can't tell you how amazing it was, you could just feel God moving throughout the entire event. Find more information click here: Oh, and I can't forget to tell you all...Mandisa was there! From American Idol season 5. She has an amazing testimony and love of Jesus. It was an awesome time!

Sunday morning Sydney woke up and celebrated her 2nd birthday. Two years ago yesterday, at 7:50 am, Sydney graced us with her presence. Since then she has been such a blessing to our family in more ways than I can count. Her two big brothers simply adore her and she loves them right on back. Her daddy just melts when he cradles her in his arms, and even as a fast-paced toddler proves, she still finds the time to sit and enjoy the stillness of her daddy's lap. I have found new ways of motherhood through her. Being a former mother of only boys, my eyes have been opened to the gentleness and grace little girls really are! It is amazing that God created her mothering nature from birth, and as long as she was old enough to hold up her own head, she has adored her baby dolls and cherished them like her own children. I'd like to put together a little photo road of her last two years and thank our precious Lord for all he has done with her and through her!

We'll be having a birthday celebration for our family in a couple weeks when everyone can be in town, but last night she got her gifts from her brothers and her Grammy & Grandpa. Grammy also made her some yummy banana pudding and then less than 2 hours later, her daddy came home from work with a dinosaur sundae from Brusters! Here are a few pics to share.
