my teenage daughter's shop Gypsy teardrop

My Millie Kate (age 13) has opened her very own etsy shop. I am very proud of her! Her pieces are so sweet, I love the way she has "named" each of them...pretty, poetic...

If you are on etsy, and you have a chance, will you help me encourage her by maybe marking one of her pieces...or maybe even her shop a favorite....Thank you, friend. And if you are in the market for something unique, handmade with love, and reasonably priced...consider a purchase! You would make her day...probably her week ;) And you won't be disappointed ...her handmade jewelry is simply lovely.

You overwhelm my days with good!

Last night's sunset brought these words to mind "You overwhelm my days with good, your wondrous love will never let me go." Click and listen to this song if ya have a won't be sorry you did. Here's an idea...listen to this song while looking through your own family pics on the computer. Sometimes, we just need a reminder of God's goodness to us ;) I knowthat yesterday I did....

Tonight's beautiful sunset brought to you by...God.
