Honoring Our Heroes

Honoring Our Heroes
April 6, 2013 Event at Freedom Quilts Shop

What a day indeed. It started raining — something that I had hoped would’t happen. I have to share this with you because this happened as a sign to not worry, that everything would work out just fine. As it was raining, I asked the Lord to please let it stop raining for the families. I just didn’t want them to get wet. I wanted some kind of sign to know if He was listening.

Welcoming a New Year

The New Year is here and the Nielsen family has been truly blessed with a new granddaughter. What a way to end the old year and bring in the New Year with a true blessing from God. I did take time off my busy schedule to help my daughter out during her recovery and with her 2 year old. What a joy it is being around a 2 year old.
