out of touch

I'm still here...don't worry!

We have been a little out of touch with the world this week. We had a big storm here on Sunday and lost our power. It came back on Monday morning, but our internet has been out until today. What did we do before internet?

Anyway, I have lots of catching up to do.

Hopefully in the next few days I will have time to update you about how we are doing and what we have been up to. Not tonight though. I am too tired!

Oh, and we started working on more Cora dresses this week. We had to take a little break. After the last batch we posted we were a little burnt out. But now we are refreshed (sort-of) and ready to be crafty again. More are coming!

Talk to you soon...

For months I have read your blog but never have commented. I've wept with you and for you. I've prayed for you often (the Holy Spirit has done a great job of bringing you to mind!). I continue to pray for you as you grieve and as you begin to heal. I know His grace is sufficient and I pray that it will cover you -- surround you, envelop you, overtake you. I pray that He will surprise you with His goodness and His presence. May His deep peace settle into every fiber of your being. And, may your moments of joy, however fleeting, increase each day.

I'm lost without my internet ;)

My family is in CO and they had some big storms last week. Down here we've already had temps in the high 90's! Mother Nature sure is fickle lately!

You both are in my thoughts.

It always blows my mind that you have it in you to think of reassuring your readers that you are going to keep them updated! I must say, I am guilty of checking frequently, even though I don't know you personally. I pray for refreshing each day, and for the Lord to carry you through each moment. You are missed when you take a break, because you are such a boon to all who come by. I pray, too, that you will be blessed, encouraged, and strengthened as only He can.

Thanks for the quick update! I can imagine that making all those dresses would burn me out too :)
But...I can't wait to try again to get one!

Hope to hear that you've been doing well, as well as can be expected. You are in my prayers daily.

I imagine things are getting busy around your farm??? We've had so much rain that our planting is way delayed...but that means more time for my "honey-do" list.

Have a wonderful weekend~you're never far from my thoughts.

UGH! Spring storms are almost worse than the summer storms! You never know if it's going to be warm enough for things to really get dicey, especially here in the Midwest. :P

Take your time and you'll get your crafty groove back in time. <3 Still prayin' for you, hon!

Breaks are always good. I tend to take them quite frequently from my blog, LOL. When you are ready to post an update I would love to hear how the fundraising for the playground is going. When you have time of course.

You are always in my prayers,

I'm glad to hear that you are both doing well.
Now I need to keep "stalking you"
so that I can actually get a dress this time! ;)
I'm always the last one to arrive.
Have a great weekend!
Still praying,

I am not sure how to contact you except to leave a comment. I live in Ft Lauderdale, Fl which is in Broward County. I was reading the Broward County Paper (The Sun Sentinel) and I saw that the flower of the month is the Catharanthus roseus ‘Cora’ and
‘Cora’ Madagascar periwinkle. I instantly thought of your sweet Cora, and it brought a smile to my face. Here is the link to the May gardening calander where it talks about the flower.
I hope it also brings a smile to your face!

Good to hear from you. Hopefully no damage from the storm. We lost power for three days a few years back in the middle of winter - thankfully we had a fireplace. Sometimes I think its good to go without something, it serves as a reminder to be thankful for what we do have. Blessings and prayers for you.

Sooo good to hear from you. I must say I can't help but check your blog several times a day to see if you have posted anything new. Love the Cora dresses to bad my girlies are not that small anymore. (size 5 and 8 hint, hint)

Just wanted to pop in and let you know that you're still in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my first son almost 16yrs ago and I still remember how hard it was when a little time had passed and others were moving on w/their lives and I was still a broken pile of tears. My world had literally stopped and I just couldn't understand why it was still spinning for others. I see now that God carried me through that horrible time...just as He's carrying you. Lean on Him!
