The Family That Prays Together

We had such a wonderful weekend in California visiting our daughter at Bible College.  She is doing SO well, and maturing into such a beautiful young woman with a heart for the Lord.  It makes me so grateful to God for allowing me to have these wonderful children in my life.  I know she is the happy and God-fearing young lady she is today because of God's goodness, and the fact that we have prayed for her since long before she was even born.  We truly believe in that saying, "The Family That Prays Together, Stays Together".  Not only that, but the family (or individual) that prays, sees Gods hand of blessing and provision on their life.  God answers prayer.

This is the front of a little mini album made from October Afternoon cards.  I will post the inside (each page) of the book.  I need to pop some photos from our trip in this little book and send it to her.

OK, so can you tell I shot these photos on my stairs?  LOL

I'm entering this little mini album in the following challenges:

I have LOTS of work to do today.  Besides my real job (homeschooling my son), I need to get busy creating some cards for upcoming Design Team assignments.  I love being busy.  Time to get started with my day.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.  I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful day, and I encourage you to stop and pray, right now, for someone you love -whether it's your child(ren), your husband, a friend, etc.  There's always someone who will be blessed because you took the time to talk to God on their behalf.

Have a Blessed Day,

  8. Super cute mini album, Karen! The cover quote, "A family that prays together stays together", brought a smile to my face...when I was a little girl my dad had a tag on the front of his truck with that quote. :) Good memory!
