Safe in the Arms of Jesus

For those of you who don't know, today is
National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.

This day hits me personally as I lost 2 pregnancies in the same year. With the first miscarriage, I was 14 weeks along and thought everything was going great and had absolutely no signs of trouble. But when my doctor check for the heartbeat, it was no where to be found and an ultrasound confirmed it, it was very evident that our baby was in Heaven. My second miscarriage happened at only 6 weeks along. I found out in the morning that I was pregnant & by that afternoon, I knew that I was having another miscarriage. The dates were April 17, 2007 and July 20, 2007. Needless to say, my husband & I were heartbroken from both! But we were able to rest in the peace of knowing that our little babies are...

Safe in the Arms of Jesus

Safe in the arms of Jesus, safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o’ershaded, sweetly my soul shall rest.
Hark! ’tis the voice of angels, borne in a song to me.

Happy WCMD!

Happy World Card Making Day!!! :)
I wanted to make a whole bunch of cards today, but instead we ended up making a trip to Lowes and purchasing a new oven & dishwasher! I'm thrilled about it, but really wish I would have had more time to make some cards today. I did make this one last night...

Happy Birthday to You!

I apologize for not blogging in such a long while! September is a busy month for us... my in-laws came in for a visit for almost a week and both of our boys had birthdays. Our oldest celebrated his 4th & our "baby" celebrated his 1st. So I stayed busy being creative. :) Here are their birthday invites, cards & cakes...
