It's raining, it's pouring... and Hannah is snoring.

I almost bought myself a miscarriage/pregnancy loss bracelet from for Mother's Day... but ended up not ordering it. They have some really touching, beautiful things. Instead, I used some of the designs to inspire my own creation! These are the first pieces of jewelry that I have ever made, and I am SO EXCITED and happy at the way they turned out! :) I put a colored birthstone next to each flower, representing the months that I lost my three angel babies. And the matching earrings are just perfect! You can't get those at a store!

Look what I made last night!

I just wanted to share this, because the whole jewelry-making process was a very healing and beautiful experience for me. Now I am working on two similar bracelet/earring sets, that I plan to give to my mom and MIL for their birthdays later this summer, as a thank-you gift for supporting me through one of the most difficult years of my life.

This morning was the first time I got to wear my new bracelet/earrings. And during church, I felt such a peace and calm from the Holy Spirit! I was on the verge of tears all morning. It really was amazing; I don't know how to explain it. The message today was about being missionaries and servants of God, and I just felt so moved and encouraged. I know that God is working through me, to be a "missionary" right here in NC, just where I am.

After church, Hannah & I ate lunch, and took a verrrry long walk around the neigborhood - she walked/rode her bike for over an hour! Then she came home and crashed.

I'm glad we got some exercise, kuz it's pouring down rain now!

The thunder and lightening are getting closer, so I'm gonna shut down the computer, just to be safe. We've already had one hard drive crash this week. I don't want to deal with that again.

Hope you had a nice weekend.
