We interrupt this Bible Study to bring you

a holiday extravaganza! It was a blast!

We had a great day at Aimee’s and I really wish that each of you could have been with us!

The Sister’s of Faith bracelet that Aimee is sharing about are handmade by Susan at Count it all Joy and she is selling them for $10 each! Part of the proceeds of the bracelet’s will go to Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge (BGMC) same as the T-Shirts we sell! Thank you Susan for that awesome contribution to the mission work for children that our missionaries work with!

By the way, in case you were wondering…the fire place behind baby Jake…is fake. No heat was being produced so don’t worry there. Although it is a heater—as well as looking pretty, it was only on for the “looks”. As cool as it was outside….with all us hormonal women in side that one room, we had to turn on the A/C! Believe it!

The slideshow is of Aimee’s house, Rylan was generous with hugs, but he found a special friend in Susan. She captured his heart by looking at his “toy magazine” several times and listening to him!

The LORD is incredibly good to us! Aimee and I want to express our deepest thanks to all of our new sisters! We are nearing the end of our Bible Study, but we hope that you will continue to join us as we continue to seek HIM first and share HIM with others!

We will be embarking on another Bible Study journey in January of 2009! We will announce the new study in December. So….get ready! You have been a sweet blessing in our lives and we are so thankful that you have taken time out each day to be a part of this study. We have loved getting to know each of you!

At the conclusion of this study, we have developed a new blog called “Joined Together”. This one is special and significant in the fact that we, as sisters of faith, are joined together in faith. In love. In the Father of each of our hearts. We are part of the Bride of Christ.

This blog is to share testimonies of what He has done in your life. What we would like to do, is have each one of our dear sisters share a testimony. Be preparing in your heart and mind now what you would like to share with other sisters on the journey of faith.

We will feature one testimony per month. When you get it ready, simple e-mail me (I think all of you have my e-mail address, but to be sure, it is av_knight (at) hotmail (dot) com.) and let me know. I can do one of two things, I can post it for you, or give you a sign-on to do so yourself. If you prefer to share something that you’d rather not have your name on, let me know and we will do so anonymously.

This is meant to encourage others. That no matter how difficult the journey—God will see you through. There are so many that need to know—the battle may get tough, but God is awesome in His power and grace—and He freely gives to those who seek Him and ask! BELIEVE! Have Faith!

Keeping the Faith,

Angie

By the way, I posted a little video of Rylan sharing his “wants” for his birthday and Christmas. He felt left out when I talked to each of the ladies in the room and didn’t include him. I am sorry sweet boy! YOU know Nana loves you! (It’s on my blog—Knightly News)


Extravaganza ends in exhaustion!

Today was a day filled with chilled air and many activities! I started the morning off with a young fellow waking at an ungodly hour on a Saturday…before 7:00 a.m. Fortunately, he fell back asleep on Papa’s pillow and then when he woke again, “I’m ‘tarvin'” was the words mumbled from his sleepy self.

Since he is the ONLY grandson that does NOT like biscuits, I don’t offer. Instead, he would rather have cereal, oatmeal or pancakes. Cereal was his choice this morning. Easy. With lots of milk and chocolate milk on the side 🙂

While he is eating, I get started with the slow cooking process of “chili” fixings. I put it on early and let it cook all morning on low.

Jeff was busy with the Senior/Retired Minister’s Luncheon at the Activity Center and I was getting ready to head over to Aimee’s for a Holiday Extravaganza that she and Susan were hosting. It was FUN! I bought lots of goodies and even WON a door prize!!! (No it wasn’t rigged either) *grinning*

Here is a small clip of Rylan and me as he was showing me his decision from the ‘toy flyer’ he has just about worn out by looking at it!

He has picked out his birthday and Christmas gift.

If you wondered why I kept wiping his chin…he has a bit of a leaky mouth sometimes…he also was determined that his jacket stay on and zipped all the way to the top the entire time! Having a bit of OCD makes things interesting sometimes. This grandson has definitely taught me patience. He is our sweetie—visiting as often as he can.

If you want to see the video clip from the “Extravaganza” you will have to hop over to Sisters of Faith site! Susan from “Count it all joy” was there! IN PERSON! Yeah Susan! You really made the day fun! (And I suppose you know that RYLAN loves you to pieces!)

I bought some really pretty jewelry…did I already tell you that? Well, I am very excited about it—I LOVE pretties!

What did ya’ll do this weekend??
