On The Camera.....

The American Girl bedroom I have been working on

On My Prayer List..... I am covering a sweet friend and her family in prayer. Who are taking their first Pastor ship. Also my own health.... I had tried to come off one of my inflammation meds. At the doctors request to see if my heart could handle it and not retain fluid. I was able to get to one dose instead of three for about a week. Then out of nowhere I began to feel exactly the way I did before the last heart surgery. When I contacted the doctor he upped the dose to 4 pills a day. He confirmed what I feared the heart was not able to keep the fluid off by itself at this time... I had developed another pericardial effusion and would require staying on the high doses of meds, for awhile longer. We see him again in about 2 weeks. Hopefully we can figure this out.

Bible Verse, Devotional......
                     13Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.                                                                         John 15:13

I can not thank you enough for stopping by and sharing your day with me! I pray you have a blessed week !


  1. Hope you start to feel better and that the rain holds off for your grilling tonight. My husband really likes the show, Reign. I like to not watch it and then, wait and ask him a bunch of questions when he's watching it ;) Hope you have a great week ahead!

  2. I'm so glad you got on the Reign train!!! I have watched the first two seasons twice, once on my own and once with Stephen lol! It is just as good every time! Thank you so much for your prayers you have no idea how much I appreciate it! I'm praying hard for you this week too my amazing friend. I love you!

  3. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well, hope you feel better soon. I'm like you though, even if I'm sick or need rest, I feel guilty sitting down so I don't do it often.

    BTW, I LOVEEEE Reign and am so bummed that it's ending, it's one of my favorite shows.

    I LOVE the tea pictures, that sounds like so much fun to do. Have a great week :)

  4. I loved The Last Kingdom - so bummed it was only two seasons. Can't wait for the next season of Reign. Keeping your friend and her family and you in prayer.
