Here it is, my next challenge for Salt. The journalling talks about how my kids autism is the path that God has chosen for my life and how I need to "run with perseverance the race set out for me."

In other parts of my life, I am persevering my job these days and feeling I am JUST doing that. Can't say to much, but to my friends who read this, keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I try to get through a really tough situation right now.

I am also looking forward to National Scrapbooking day this weekend - hangin out with all my girls and really looking forward to just being with the girls all day. On that topic, I did the Color me Quiz on Creating Keepsakes. Try it out - this is what colour I am and I think it talks about me to a tee:

that was the theme of our Salt Challenge this week. I used the verse " We like sheep have gone astray" from Isaiah 53:6. I focussed on how we are stupid like sheep and rather than follow the shepherd, follow the other sheep, which can often get us into trouble.

I am really enjoying these challenges - they are making me think outside the box and yet try and figure out a way to instill the Biblical challenges into every part of my life. It is giving me a new look at my life and my relationship with God and taking it to a different level. Check out the challenge and try it - see where it takes you!

Big day!

Today is my daughter Kiana's big day!!! She is competing at the Conservatory of Music's Scholarship Competition. I am very excited for her, especially because of the song she is singing. The song she is singing is about a child's love for her Lord and Saviour - and she is passionate about the song. She is feeling kinda pressured this year because she won "The Most Promising Student" last year. She competed and won against 14 year olds and she was only 10. Don't know who's more nervous - Kiana or me. Oh, well, it will be fun and she will do great.

If you have a moment, please pray for her at 2:30 this afternoon. Pray that her heart is calm and she does the best she can and not stress about her performance.

Don't forget that tomorrow is the new Challenge at Salt!!!

Salt Challenge

The Challenge this week is a layout for Easter. The photo that I used is one of a plant called the "Crown of Thorns" that blooms in the spring around Eastertime. It is called that because it's the plant that is believed to have been used for the crown Christ wore on the cross. TFL!

To My Family

You work so hard every day and don't care what the world thinks. You fight for everything and try to get people to understand you and accept you for who you are. You love each other in a way that most siblings don't. You have taught me so much in this life - much more than I could EVER teach you. You accept the world for what it is, not recognizing color, religion or disability. You take everyone at face value and accept them for who and what they are.

Autism is a family member that we have accepted and have made a part of our lives. Today I pray that others will learn and accept what we have spent the last 10 years working and doing.

Kiana, Malachi and Chris, I love you for what you are. Thank you for showing me a different view of life!
