Molly is Three - Yippee!

Molly Margaret turned three on August 17! We celebrated her birthday with precious friends and family at The Birthday House. Molly wanted a Dora Princess Party...so we had Dora plates and napkins and put on princess attire for the party. The girls dressed up in their fancy princess dresses and the boys put on Superman capes and pirate hats and headed downstairs for cupcakes.
Sweet friends

Dress up fun with friends

Eric & Jenn

Gran or as Molly calls her "Gee"

PePaw & MaMaw

Oh, how Molly loves her brothers

Daddy's little princess

My dear Molly Margaret - I love you with all of my heart and am so thankful to be your Mommy. You are a beautiful Gift from the Lord, and I praise God everyday that He gave you to me. Happy 3rd Birthday!

No More Worries

I opened the kids' devotional book on Thursday to read with them and it was Devotional #56 Give Your Worries to God

The Bible verse read, "Give all your worries to Him, because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

There are lots of worries in our home right now, so we decided to write our concerns down on strips of paper. We took turns praying and giving our worries to our Lord. For a visual, we stuck them on a cross on our door. I went first and put one of my worries on the cross. Jordan said, "you put it on backwards - no one can see what you wrote". Exactly - it is no longer my worry or anyone else's worry in this house! What an amazing gift of grace and love through the cross.

"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom." Psalm 145:3

When we focus on praising our Lord rather than trying to figure out what He is doing, our attitude does change. He is GOD and His greatness I cannot even begin to understand! With all of the unknowns in the Bryans' home right now, I am most thankful that one thing never changes - GOD.

Kudos to the Chef!

Jordan was the chef for the evening. He looked through recipe books and planned dinner for all of us. He created his grocery list and off we went to Brookshire's. On his menu for the evening:

Mexican Lasagna (new yummy recipe - of course Jordan would not try it)

Fruit Kabobs

Brownies - cut out with cookie cutters and decorated with icing and sprinkles

Jordan may not like to eat food, but he sure loves to prepare it and cook for others. Thanks for a delicious dinner!
