My First Pots!

Claire and I took up pottery at the end of February. These are my first two pieces. Everyone, including myself, was sooo impressed. Girl got skillz, what can I say?

I started on the wheel last week and hope to have some of those pieces soon!!

Henna

My first time (outside of street fairs that charge you $30 for a small butterfly on your arm) getting henna. The girls loved the fact that I got it. A woman at the museum had a little stand. This cost me a little under $5. Two weeks later it's starting to fade away.


Dubai Museum

I took my girls to the Dubai Museum. This was my first trip to downtown Dubai. The museum is housed in a fort. It tells the development of Bedouin society and the UAE. It was really cool. One of the best museums I've ever seen.

Happy Birthday to Me!!

It's been 8 years since I became a Christian. I can't believe how time flies. It feels as if it just happened yesterday. I wouldn't trade any of it for anything...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those who have been influential in my walk.

But most importantly, thank you Jesus, who knows just how far the east is from the west, when You spread Your arms out upon that cross for me.

I Have a Brain and It is Perfect!

Amen!?!? My MRI came back perfect. My blood results on the other hand did not. It's a long story. I'm treatable. I just have to wait a few more weeks for my doctor to return.

Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait.

I do believe this is the story of my life. If someone was to write a biography about me, it would be one page long. This is what it would say:

"The Lord constantly taught her to wait upon Him.
Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait..."

The Judah....Da Da Da

The Judah cat has returned!! God is so faithful. I cried a lot over the little babe, but then put it all in God's hands. The more I thought about the situation, the happier I was. I knew and I trusted God to take care of Him. He says He would, and He has!!!
I am so glad I serve a wonderful, trustworthy God!

I'm also very happy to see Judah back at home. He's naughty. :)
