In April I attended a wonderful Relief Society meeting in the North Little Rock Stake. The Memphis, Tennessee Temple President said in his talk that we should not tend to the things of the world. We do not drink coffee, we should not call it a "coffee table". Why not call it a "prayer table"? A place in the home where a family can meet for family prayer. I loved that idea.....so I was on the lookout for a "prayer table" for my family.
I was so excited when I found one at Goodwill for $6!!!! I brought it home and began brainstorming paint colors. I was worried also that the kids would color on it and destroy the paint and I thought of chalkboard paint. Knowing they would love that! And then I thought about using it to write the names of those who have asked for prayers said for them.....It works great and we are more thoughtful about those that need healing and we leave the names there and add to the list as needed.
So, I thought I would share our Family Prayer Table.
So, I made this today from our old slide film and tapes and we will use it for family home evening tonight. The kids may not even be interested in it since it is so old. I sure one of them will ask, "Why aren't the pictures moving??" I know it. Here it is.....
Ultra Sound on February 28th ,the day we found that it's a girl!
Well....it has been a long time. I am going to have to change things up around here. It is not going to be life with just Jane and Charlie anymore. Susan Elaine will be born around July 11th. We are so excited. She will be named Susan after my Mother and Elaine is Chip's Mother Bea and his Sister Lisa's middle name. I think her name is lovely.
We have been preparing...me mostly because I am home and I am so darned excited. Here is one of my projects that I found on tipjunkie.com . I found it and knew I had to make one, but I didn't know yet if we were having a boy or girl. Once we found out...I was off to Hancock Fabric the next day. I will post the progress photos of mine and if you want directions...you will have to go to Tip Junkie for that hahaha. I love how it turned out....thank goodness because it took A LOT of time to make.
Cutting with this handy, awesome tool.
All cut and binding done....ready for the wash and dry.
The Finished product!
I love how it feels and drapes.
The colors are sweet and I am very pleased with how it turned out.
I finished it and threw it in the washer and went to bed at 12:05 this morning.
I woke to use the bathroom and tossed it in the dryer and woke up and pulled it out and smiled at how sweet it is. :)
I will be posting more....excited for the changes and the little sweet spirit that will be joining our family. :)
