Well, as anyone who knows me knows too well, this year has started out pretty rough for me and my family. My kids have had a series of illnesses, which have been awful for them to go through, and have put major stress on us financially. My 2 year old in particular had been on 4 different antibiotics, two in November for an awful ear infection and two in January for an awful sinus infection. He had dropped down 5 pounds since November, from his normal 30 pounds. The other day I asked my sweet CAST team members (a group of wonderful Christian artists on Etsy) to pray with me for my son to gain back weight. I am so happy to say that within 36 hours, he gained back almost 3 pounds!!! Praise Jesus!!
Another thing that I had asked the CAST team to pray with me about was finding my lost antique ring. The ring was something I inherited when my great grandmother passed away in 2004. My grandma was very special to me, so much so that I named my daughter Hazel after her! The ring was her mother's, made in the early 1900s. So I was extremely upset that I could not find it, and it had been about three weeks since I saw it! Well praise Jesus even more!! I found it this morning, tucked in a pocket of my camera bag nice and safe!! I have been ecstatic all day that I found it!!
