Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Because...

He's huge!  And he's pink.  :)  Because granddaughters should be spoiled, right?
It's her birthday....5 years old and sassy and not as big as this hippo.  She's gonna' love it.  Her parents, not so much.

She will love it... and yes granddaughters are meant to be spoiled. However, in Claire's case, it seems that the big toy sink, cabinet and refrig and many of her stuffed animals have all ended up at my house. Now how did that happen?????

Have a great week. I have been thinking of calling you for support and advice. A friends husband just committed suicide. I am trying to be a support but it is hard to know what to say. I am afraid that the family needs so much more than any of us can give. Of course we all know God is the main source of support ... but we are the hands He uses to administer comfort. I am praying that He will guide me in being a support to this sweet family. Please pray for me to be in tune with His spirit and please pray for Alexis and her family. Thanks dear
