1 John Chapter 2

My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Yeshua (Jesus Christ), the Righteous One.

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him.

This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.

Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning.

My week in pictures

It has been a very good week. Every day that you are breathing is a good day, right! ;-) I have changed my diet a bit. I have been suffering with achy joints and just feeling like I am 100 years old for the past year now. Which isn't fun considering I am only 31 years old and have a long road in front of me (I hope). After talking with a naturopath (sp) and a few other health folks, the conclusion was made that my body needs a good detoxing. A 21 day fast and cleansing was prescribed, BUT I cant do it, BECAUSE I am nursing (as always) LOL!

I thought about weening Ava early so that I could get in this detox before my next pregnancy (Lord willing) The more I thought about it, the more I hated that option. I figure if God doesn't give me time in between, well that's His decision. So I am NOT going to ween Ava early, BUT I am going to try and bath my body in nutrients for the next few months. Juicing, drinking lots of water, eating no sugar (that will be hard), and steering clear as best as possible from all processed foods. Below is a picture of breakfast. Courtesy of Jack La Lane, I had two carrots, two celery sticks, a peach and a beet.

LOOK at ALL these eggs. The chickens have been doing great. We found a nest under the house last weekend that had 10 eggs in it. Somehow one of the chickens keeps getting under there and laying her eggs. Silly Girl! Now what to do with all these eggs?

I have taken the term baby maker to a whole new level, LOL. I am almost done with 7 of the Little Blessings Babies. They just need their faces put on and they are ready to go to their new homes. These have been alot of fun to make!Last Saturday was a perfect day! The weather was beautiful and that prompted us to lay out a blanket on the ground and enjoy the backyard. The ladies were happy to join us as well.

Until they received hugs o-plenty, then they decided to go back to their side of the yard.
My blanket buddies where Eve and Elijah. They had fun sitting with mom on the blanket and reading. Jumping on the jump-o-leen and swinging each other on the swing set.

The "Big Boys" decided to put on a show for us as well. Hooping and Hollering, and showing us how strong they were.

I received three dress orders over the weekend, so I will be busy making those this week. I also have 80 bibs to make LOL for a rep that is going to begin carrying them in her store. School is also in full swing. Lots to do! Everyone have a great week.

I am also going to give away one more bib as a huge THANK YOU! To Michelle B. As a result of her posting my giveaway on her blog, through the rabbit trail that is the Internet, I have been givin an opportunity to sell on another website.

Marina with Gissy Bella LLC the creator of Comfy Crawlers has asked if she can sell my Extend-A-Bibs on her site. I am hoping that this will be a great resource and hopefully the start of a trend to sell on many websites as well as retail. So thank you again Michelle for helping me make that connection!! Let me know boy/girl and where you would like it sent.

I will pick two winners on September 12th (one week from today). These come in both genders, so all can join in this give away.

If you link to this post on your own blog or website, I will add your name to the hat twice.

This will be a sticky post until the 12th, scroll down for new posts.

This and That

Well, Its been pretty busy around here. Rob has been working ALOT and it seems as if we are to take that next step and begin hiring employees. If we do not do this we will have to begin turning down jobs. God has blessed us so much! I find myself in awe sometimes, that we deserve nothing and yet He has given us everything!

Many of you remember the nightmare I went through about a year ago with my mother. It was quite painful and we ended it in a harsh way. Well, Wed and into Thurs I had been hearing that I should call her and reconcile. Not start a relationship again, but to simply forgive, ask forgiveness and let go. I of course fought this direction tooth and nail. "Lord you really cant want me to do that....don't you remember what she did to me?"

Then last night the phone rings and it is my mother. I was floored. She said that she thought something might be wrong because she couldn't get me off of her mind. She wasn't going to call, but decided she had to. I must say I was happy that we said our peace and laid it to rest, yet unnerved that this happened. Of course I keep thinking why was it so important for us to speak to each other so quickly? I know that Our Father in Heaven is in complete control and His way is the only way!

Around the house: we have built a very nice chicken coop and they are apparently getting the hang of it. We tried trickery and it seems to have worked. Putting eggs from the store into the laying boxes to try and get them to lay in the coop instead of hiding their eggs in our yard. I have learned that chickens are much like children, and if left to themselves will bring shame to their parents. Letting them free range and live like semi-wild chickens brought us no fruit (eggs). So now we must re-train them.

We decided that Eve was ready to potty train this past week, and she has been doing very well, especially today. Considering she has been sick and has a touch of the stomach bug, she has been getting to the toilet rather well. She will be our earliest potty trainer at the ripe young age of 27 months. The boys were all between 3 and 4 years old.

Ava had her first bite of baby food today and that was all she had because she couldn't stand it. So we will continue to solely nurse. I wanted to wean her a bit early maybe at 9 months so that I can detox before (if the Lord is willing) we conceive again. I was thinking about it last night and that is (if like all the rest) only 3 months away. Yikes, time flies! My body definitely needs a good detox and fast to get back in tune. It is so hard though when you overlap nursing and pregnancy and never seem to get a span of time in between. So I guess I will have to carve some out this time. I hate to wean her though, sigh, what to do?

Well that about wraps it up I need to get some things done around the house while the girls are napping. Have a great weekend!
Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
