"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Well dang...


It's been a lazy couple of months since we moved home.  Good.  Slow.  Simple.  And my blog has been neglected. 

We have moved in our forever home and boy does it feel good to know we will be here for a long time.  I keep telling Blake that this is our last home.  That is such a wonderful feeling, even though I know better than to say never, right? 

Blake starts his job today and I could NOT possibly be more proud of him.  So I am gonna brag.  He has worked his heart out for 14 years to get to this place.  So, if you happen to find yourself in Tulsa, Oklahoma  and unfortunately your bones are outta whack, I just happen to know a fantastic guy!  He joined a great group here that just happened to plan to hire a orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine this summer.  How great is our God?  I couldn't have planned that better if I tried :)

 Gosh, I love this one!!!

 I love how Emme winks!!!  Notice that I brought sugar cookies to keep them smiling ;)

And we are even more blessed by the church we call home here, and how close we are to our family and long time friends.  This past week I was baking brownies because my parents and grandmother were coming for dinner.  My daddy loves pecans in his brownies and I realized I had none.  My batter was ready to pour.  In relief I called for the boys down and told them to run to their grandparents house and get some from Noonie.  How cool is that?  We live in the same neighborhood as my parents.  If I had told Blake that was my dream as a child, he would've never married me I am sure.  And then it happened and we were both excited about it.  Sadie still wants to live at Noonie and Papa's though.  Total bummer, but she'll get over it, right?
So we are just settling in, loving being back together forever.  I've been reading a few books that have totally rocked my world.  Gaw.  I will have to come back and post on them because I can't quite swallow what has been brought to my attention.
