Aunts and Dishes and other Blessings...

My great aunt Mary (on the Berge side) and aunt Bernadine (on the King side) are good friends and like to go antiquing and treasure hunting/selling. They have all kinds of adventures together and find some pretty amazing things. Recently they came upon a beautiful set of china from an estate sale that they were in charge of organizing. It was all going to be sold for $50 and they called here wondering if someone would be interested in it.

So, long story short, I am now the owner of a 12-place setting of china! It has a delicate flower pattern and silver trim. The cups are sturdy but elegant. I am very blessed and I praise the Lord from Whom all blessings flow.

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!" ~Psalm 34:8

A little miracle is on the way!

My little sister is going to have a BABY!!! I rejoice at how the Lord has blessed Mindy with an awesome husband, a beautiful home, and now a baby. Ben and Mindy are going to be amazing parents and I just can't wait to see them in that role.

The most exciting thing?...I felt Mindy's baby move! It was Easter Sunday and Mindy had me hold my hand on her tummy and sure enough--a little kick! What a miracle...I can't wait to hold that sweet little blessing in my arms. August seems like an eternity away!!

Home again, home again, jiggidy-jig.

I've plunged right back into the thick of it today after arriving home from Texas at 1:00 AM. I am a bit groggy but happy for every moment spent with my wonderful brother and his sweet family.

Hey! I am posting my very first post from the state of Texas! It is beautiful here. I am staying at my brother Matt's house and am having a great time. We are getting ready to barBQ in a minute and my neice Katey wants me to go outside and swing with her on the tire swing, so I better run.

I will try to get on here as much as possible but with two jobs and going to school...well, I'll try anyway. God bless and say hi when you get a chance.
