My heart is so full right now.  
I am so thankful for every one of you who prayed for my brother.
Every prayer was felt and every prayer was heard.
I've spent this day on my face before God's throne and
God has been reminding me that He is holding tight to my little bro.  
He won't let go.

My brother will be in the hospital for awhile but he is out of surgery for now.
I pray that he will hear the voice of his Father speaking love into the deepest corners of his soul.

Thank you. so. much. for kneeling your hearts beside mine.  ♥♥

There is another reason my heart is so full.
And it has everything to do with this man.

This weekend we are celebrating our sixth year of love and marriage!
And here's the best part:
We get to celebrate ALONE!
Yes, I am ecstatic.
I haven't left my kids overnight is almost two years.
This is a BIG DEAL.  (thank you, thank you, thank you Mother in Love!)

Here's were we'll be tomorrow as you read this post:

So I won't be around for a couple days : )
See ya when I get back!

Dear Joye,

Congratulations on your anniversary!

I am so happy for you that you get to go away for 1 & ½ days! Even with older children, sometimes I wish I could just get away for a night and have a mini vacation with Bill, how much more YOU need it.

Have a great weekend!

Still praying for you, your brother, and your entire family!
And happy Anniversary too! I have to admit I'm just the teensy bit jealous, actually more than a teensy bit- but also very happy for you and your dh!
So, I know you're obviously a busy gal, but I thought you'd like to know that you've been tagged for the Sixth Photo Challenge. When you get a chance hop on over to my blog and take a look at my 6th photo- it should make you laugh!
