And Then Came the Dresser

Today we let Anna paint her dresser. Now her desk and dresser match. Here is what it looks like.

Quote for Thought

Reading this really good book Believing God by Beth Moore. This Quote keeps sticking with me (among others, but you will get those later).

"... they believed in God... they simple didn't believe the God they believed in."

So I have been asking myself - Do I simply believe in God or do I Believe God? I want to Believe God.

Desk Painting

On Monday we let Anna paint flowers are her desk. I think it turned out really quiet... personally I think some one would even pay money to have costume furniture like this... but see for yourself.

Anna painting.

Mommy and Anna painting

The top finished.

... and what did Benen do? Will we took the handles off the desk to put new ones on after the paint dried and Benen walk around all morning with the screwer driver wanting to "Fix it?" it was too cute. So here he is fixing it.

Anna and the Dentist

So I took Anna to the dentist today to have her tooth the got knocked looked at. Anna is funny when she goes to the dentist. She wants to go back be herself and is much better when I am not with her so I sit in the waiting room while she goes and lets them do there thing. Her tooth is fine; but the Dentist said that if he did not know better he would guess she was 6 - she is getting her 6 year old molars (okay that explains some things) and she has two teeth that are starting to loosen. Okay; my daughter is at an advanced dental age - did not even really think about that being possible but it is.

Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for God's always moving hand. He provided some encouragement at just the right time, when I did not know I even needed it. He has been working behind the sense to bring someone into my life very unexpectedly and it has got me very excited to see what He does with it. It is a really cool story but I am waiting to share it so you will have to live in suspense.
