Well, it's because I've been doing this...

I've been pretty quiet lately.  It's been for many reasons (some of which I'll share below), but I think one of the main reasons is that I've been having way too much fun being inspired by others to spend any time sharing my little somethings that might inspire you!  So here's a little random wrap-up of what's been going on:

We backed up the computer over the weekend - just in case.  This old dinosaur of a desktop is gonna go some day, and the way it's been acting lately it could be sooner rather than later. I am very fond of my technology and when it does happen I just hope and pray we'll be able to find some way to replace it. :(

Remember this?
The custom sign I designed at DaySpring to enter The Nester's giveaway...and then I won!

Well I changed the design a little bit and it arrived Saturday!!  It was packaged very nicely and wrapped in a pretty brown grosgrain ribbon with a congratulatory note inside.

Here it is in real life (sorry for the poor pics, I took them at night).  Notice the memory included on the back so I will remember how I came to possess this little lovely :) BTW, the beautiful canvas below my new sign is also from DaySpring and was a Christmas gift from my mama.

My baby got her driver's license on Friday!

Okay, so she's not a baby any more (she'll be 18 in November).  She was in no huge hurry to learn how to drive and get her license...and her dear-old-dad and I had nooooo problem with that. She's not too fond of the pic, so I told her I'd keep it on the small side.
I've been trying to take the time to enjoy this beautiful Spring!  I have especially loved this view out my kitchen window (dandelions and all).  You can't see the tippy-top of a pretty yellow forsythia right behind the valance tassel.

I made this yummy Lemon Blueberry Dump Cake.  I got the recipe from Sno White at Finding Joy in My Kitchen.  It was made by her hubby, Frog Prince (don't ya just love the nicknames?) I recently discovered this blog -- she has tons of yummy recipes to share!  Oh, and this week she's sharing an Ice Cream Maker Giveaway!

Chances are you know someone who has experienced infertility and/or adoption...or may have yourself.  If not, I'm sure some day you will.  It is so difficult to express the many varying feelings one goes through.  Well, Amy at Our Journey Together shared a poem recently that illustrates a tiny piece of it beautifully!  This is a quick MUST READ!

God is incredibly good!  I've been taking some extra time to read more of His word, to learn more about how I can be a better Christ Follower, and doing some research & reading so I can encourage others to do the same.  He's got some changes in store in the coming months in our ministry and I wait anxiously to see where He challenges us to go and who He challenges us to be!

If you've made it this far, thanks for following the randomness (and exclamation ! points). Have a beautiful day!
