Prayer Requests May 19, 2009

If you’ve got a minute and you pray…these people could use some extra prayers…

  • My SIL Kathy’s friend Rhonda was bucked off her horse and broke 3 vertebrae in her back.  She’s going to be down for 8-12 weeks and even has a hospital bed in her house (since her bedroom is on the 2nd floor).  She has 3 children (2nd, 3rd and 5th grade) and a traveling husband.  She could use a few extra prayers this month.
  • A friend of a friend is 20 weeks pregnant with twins.  She recently discovered she has twin to twin transfusion syndrome.  I’m not sure exactly what this means but it has to do with too little or too much fluid.  Please keep all of them in your prayers.
  • Eric’s grandma recently had a mini stroke.  She’s doing pretty good but is still having some issues with her speech.  She’s been a very independent woman all her life and we know this is very frustrating for her.  Please keep Imogene in your prayers.
  • Kimber’s grandma passed away a week ago…I know she was struggling a bit so please keep Kimber and her family in your prayers.

If you have something you would like to add…please feel free to comment.

Thanks in advance!

Fun Bits for the Week of May 11th…

  • I sponsored my first crop this past Friday.  I wanted to host a crop for my Jillibean friends – so many have been supportive and encouraging.  We had a great time!  Thought I would share a few pics…


  • Here’s the crew – missing is Alecia (the storeowner) who’s taking the pic.


  • Holly’s gonna LOVE this one!  Here’s Holly enjoying some white chocolate crunch.  LOVE this stuff.  Did I mention we ate a lot at the crop? 


  • Can’t see Missey – can you?  She’s hiding behind all that scrappin’ goodness to the right. 


  • Sandy doesn’t mind having her picture taken. 🙂


  • Love the sign – thanks Alecia!


  • The crew surprised me with a cake and a beautiful scrapbook about the “Jillibean Journey”.  Thank you to everyone for spending the time to make a special page/card for my scrapbook!  I LOVE it and it was incredibly thoughtful for you to do this for me.  Also,  a big THANKS to Karen and Alecia for making this such a special night!


  • What?  Where did that come from?  It’s just one of those goofy pics that Alecia caught while practicing with my camera.   Yeah, I’m not too proud anymore.


  • Look at all that croppin’ goodness! 


  • We played some games during the evening and had a challenge to make a card from some scraps.  Here are the finished products.  I will post better pics sometime this week.  I LOVE the cards that everyone made and it’s funny that everyone used the Whitebean collection.

Thanks again ladies for a great evening!  We’ll do it again soon!
