I survived to the end of the entry! Yay me!


This post makes me miss the Springs! :) La Baguette is my favorite!!! I love it! So glad you got to go - what do you like to eat there? Also, thanks for the picture of the mountains. I did not let myself gaze at it too long - but I enjoyed seeing it! So glad you had such a great day!

Sounds like a wonderful day! Happy Easter, friend.


Thank you for your post on Lilly's blog. Thank you for your prayers. They help so much. I am Lilly's Grandmother (Gammy). She was my first grandbaby and was such a blessing and a gift from God. I miss her and she will live forever in my heart. I pray for Jennifer and Richard. Their hearts are hurting and they have such a void in their lives.

I enjoyed your website and look forward to reading your books. You seem like a delightful person. Have a blessed Easter weekend.

Praise God that it can be "Well With My Soul" because He gave His Son and His Son willingly paid the price for my sin. Praise God for His magnificent glory and that we will experience it someday with our sweet Lilly! God is good.

I'm so glad you had a good day!
I could not agree with you more. That verse of "It is well" is my all-time, favorite hymn! It speaks to my life and what Christ has done for me!!
Happy Easter,
He is Risen!!!!


Wow that sounds like a really long day...and I totally love the picture of the Range..looks like Switzerland....
For the last few days I am having a really strong craving to read a good book.. I guess I am going to gift myself one of your books...and I will take one back home to India for my best friend.

Happy Easter To you and to everyone out there.


I just joined a MOPS group... my aunt had spoken at one and thought it would be a great place to go. I am brand new to your blog, but think i will enjoy coming back and hanging out.

Praise Jesus! I love your 'fire' for the Lord.

God bless-


Aww! Joanne, you were a highlight of my day. What a nice surprise to chat and exchange stories for a little while instead of racing to the door and back like I expected. It was wonderful! And my Emma talked about your Emma and Audrey all the way home and asked when she can play with them again. It was a treat for all of us.

Hi Joanne,
I love the group Selah too.
Have you been reading Angie Smith's blog about the upcoming birth of their precious baby Audrey, that is not expected to live? So very sad...
She's the wife of Todd (from Selah). Her blog is the most inspiring blog... I have wept after reading many of her posts. She is such an amazing, Godly woman.
