A Heart of Praise Dish Towels

A few days ago Graham brought home these dish towels that his Mom embroidered for me.  It was a sweet surprise, aren't they nice?! :)

Yummy Blueberry Cake

This afternoon the kids and I had fun making this yummy blueberry cake.  It turned out very good! Before I got married my family used to make it a lot, and smelling it bake today brought back a lot of memories. :)  If you'd like to make it too, please head over to my sisters blog where she has the recipe posted! :)

Your Place

Is your place a small place?
Tend it with care --
He set you there.

Is your place a large place?
Guard it with care --
He set you there.

Whate'er your place,
It is not yours alone --
But His who set you there.
