Since I have nothing of value to say ...

I will share with you my little niece, Greta. :) She's growing and growing, if you've been keeping up on Katie's blog then you already know that.

My life is busy, but good. I've been learning the hard way with some things. God has been gently pushing and pulling but I just hadn't been getting it ... until now, but as you know, you form habits and then when you learn what needs fixed it's much harder to break them then to form them. But on to happier things ... here's Greta.

Ana dear,
The photos are great. What a doll and Caleb looks like a blessed father. It sounds like you are being stretched. I hope everything is OK. Please let me know if you need anything or specific prayer on something!

Greta is SUCH a doll. :) She makes me smile and laugh. And Caleb is a WONDERFUL father.

Yes, the Lord is testing and trying, but I'm learning and longing to love Him more. I appreciate your willingness to pray for me! It means so much to me!

Ana,
You have such a cute niece!! It must be so fun to watch her grow! :-D

I will be praying for you during this stretching time in your life. Growing in Christ is sometimes painful, but the beautiful result of being like Christ is well worth it!

Yes, she's such a cutie! It is fun to watch her grow and see her learn new things. :)

And I thank you, over and over again, for your prayers!! :) I cannot explain what it means to me!! I truly, truly want to be like my Jesus, and as you've said, it takes pain and hurt, but what a result!

I'm happy to see your comments! I'm always overjoyed to see comments from a dear bloggie friend. :)

Yes, I know that God's stretching will be wonderful and good, but at the time of the stretching you don't always remember that. :) So thank you for the reminder!
