Busy Girl

Nora and I made it to Bible study this morning! She was such a good girl and was so happy to see all of her “aunts” and “grandmas”. I was so preoccupied trying to make sure she was happy that I completely forgot to take a picture! I’ll try to remember next week.

Once we were back home we had just enough time for lunch and a milkies before we had to venture out again to go meet William to sign a bunch of papers for something. Nora doesn’t like it when the car stops, so we were thinking about investing in one of these:

All this activity makes for one tired girl, and one tired Mommy!

On another note and all politics aside, my dear friend Margaret asked that I mention this article on the blog this evening. I agree that it is definitely worth sharing!

ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT

During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill, who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute, to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace. This had an amazing effect, as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America.

The United States of America, and our citizens, need prayer more than ever! If you would like to participate, each evening at 9:00 P.M.. Eastern Time (8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific), stop whatever you’re doing, and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, for our upcoming election, for our troops, for our citizens, for peace in the world, and for our continuing to enjoy all the blessings of freedom, especially religious freedom, here at home.

If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this along.

Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.

Please pass this on to anyone who you think will want to join us.

Nora’s sweet little face is a testament to the power of prayer!! I’ve set an alarm on my phone for 9pm to remind me to pray for our country.

How easy it is to take all our freedoms, (not just religious freedoms) for granted. Freedom is all I’ve ever known, but it is something I enjoy because countless men and women fought for it. They even lost their lives for it. When I think of it in that way — of course I can take one minute out of my night to pray for our county and our leaders WHETHER I AGREE WITH THEM OR NOT!

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
(1 Timothy 2:1-2 NIV)

  1. She is so amazing and beautiful. I was feeling anxious tonight and decided I needed to catch up on my Nora updates. Needless to say my anxiety level is much better, thank you to sweet Nora. Loved the “One Minute each night” idea and have passed it on. Hugs and kisses to you all!

  2. I ALSO LOVE THE “ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT” OF PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY, TROOPS, THAT WE GET THE RIGHT PRESIDENT IN OFFICE AND FOR THE PEOPLE THAT MAKES UP OUR COUNTRY AND OF COURSE OUR LOVED ONES. THIS IS A FANTASTIC IDEA, AND I WILL POST IT TO MY F.B. PAGE. NORA YOU LOOK SO TIRED AFTER YOUR FUN BUT BUSY DAY. I THINK YOU PROBABLY WILL SLEEP GOOD TONIGHT. I LOVE THE PICTURES OF YOU READY FOR BED, YOU ARE ONE BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL. I LOVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY NORA. OH BY THE WAY DID DADDY AND MOMMY GET YOU THAT BOUNCY CAR? GOOD NIGHT PRECIOUS ONE AND GOD BLESS.

  3. I am not sure how I first found your blog, but I’ve been following since Nora’s birth – what a great God we serve! She is precious. It has been neat to “watch” you love her through this blog. I was thinking about the title of the blog, “I will carry” and I was struck that you chose to carry her in your womb, not knowing what the future would hold, and I was thinking now how God will carry you and Nora and your whole family through life – it is a great picture for us to see you carry her and see what great lengths God goes through to carry us! And to know He will never leave us or forsake us, but will carry us until he returns or calls us home! God bless!
