Monthly Archives: April 2011

And Just Like That….

I am back.  Having the last couple of weeks off and not stressing about posting a blog, or updating my twitter and facebook have been hugely relieving.  

I don't feel nearly as anxious. And the world kept on spinning when I wasn't tuned in with the social media world.  

Who would've thought ;).

There is so much going on here with the Harper's and ministry that I felt it appropriate to come back to you all. I just wanted to share!

This Sunday is Easter. We celebrate Good Friday..the death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And on Sunday…

He is Risen.

Then on April 30-May 1st Michael Frazese will be speaking at all  Knott Avenue services.  I cannot tell you how excited I am to hear this man speak. His story will amaze you.

I hope you can join us for Easter and for our visit with Michael. I am positive it will be a magnificent couple of weeks.



P.S. Don't have any plans the Saturday before Easter?  Knott Avenue will be hosting an easter egg hunt for the kiddos (pre-k through elementary) on April 23rd at 10 am. If you are in the Southern California area, please join us!

To my Daughter Madison

Today…you are five.


You are charming, sensitive, sweet, smart.

You use big words and never seem to miss a beat when it comes to telling a joke.  

You have the biggest laugh, the prettiest smile.

Your Auntie Sheena told me the other day that the older you get, the prettier you seem to be getting.

It scares me for when you will be 16.  

You have such a big heart. I love that you constantly want to pray for those in Japan, whenever you see a car accident or something scary or sad you immediately want to pray.  To be honest, sometimes that isn't always Mommy's first instinct, but I am so glad that it is yours.  

I hope you always stay that way.

I love that you love Jesus. He loves you.

I love that you love your baby brother. That you put up with him beating you up.  

I am so thankful that God allowed me to have a little girl.  I was so sure I was going to be a mommy of all  boys. 

But God gave me you.

You are one of my greatest accomplishments.  

Happy birthday Madison. I love you.  



Taking a Blogging Haitus

For the next few weeks, I will be taking a break from the blog world…along with the rest of the social media world.  

I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. I have no idea why I have waited so long.

I am finding that I am constantly glued to this screen, to facebook, to twitter. The internet in general.

Not enough face time with those I really care about.  

I hope you all have a beautiful and blessed April.

I will see you in a few weeks.
