hearts, flowers, and resources for the heart

There has been too much of this around poor baby...she is hopefully on the mend.

We decided that painting would cheer us up!

The kids each got their own canvas and I told them to paint a heart. (we used acrylic paint)

Wish I got more photos of their paintings- the rest are mine.....the heart + fabric flower

Decoupage patchy heart (fuzzy photo)

Heart + paper + fabric flower

Speaking of hearts- Revive our Hearts is having a clearance sale. This book looks like a great one. Randy Alcorn is one of my favorite authors.

Mom Mincy told us about this series:
Nancy Leigh DeMoss interviews Josh Harris in 3 parts:
1- Your Children's Friendships
2- Better than television
3- Teaching children discernment
This is great stuff- very convicting and inspiring.

Also, a dear friend of mine told me about a Praying Parent daily calendar. I first heard about the praying parent from Sarah's blog...and a daily reminder would be great! I found used ones on Amazon for a few bucks. And then I saw these!!!! Praying Parent prayer cards!!!

I don't know about you, but I need all the help I can get.

You're such a fun mom! Wow the memories your kiddos will have!

those would be good reminders. I just use my book and see what day it is and then pray for that certain area, but sometimes I forget to look it up

Poor little one. I hope she's feeling much better now.
Painting always makes me feel better, too.
Love all of the heart pictures and the blackboard!

Hope your little one is better. It is so terrible when they don't feel well. Thank you for the link to the pray cards. I am planning on ordering the cards for me and my daughter. I usually hand write prayers in my day planner, but this would be so much easier.
