When God's People Pray

This couldn't have come at a better time.
We have big plans to party it up tonight, full-on mayhem-style.
5 adults, 10 small children.

We'll be stuffing our faces with chili and expired-bacon salad.

And these.

It's a throw-caution-to-the-wind kind of weekend.
We've never been more ready.


  1. YUM! I've single-handedly eaten an entire pumpkin pie myself this week--I consider it health food. :) (Have fun!)

  2. you are cracking me up!

    It's a thanksgiving miracle! they're napping!!! Get some rest lady.

  3. This made me LAUGH OUT LOUD. (for Joy!) Look at those sleeping children. Awwwww. Love it. Hey - enjoy that expired bacon while it lasts. Par-TY! Have a great weekend Shannan! ~Sally

  15. I have been praying for you and Nic.

    For Siley and M.

    For God to smooth out those rough spots, to fill in the cracks, to weave together these hearts and write beautiful stories.

    He will.

    Thanks for the text. "Blessed Assurance" was exactly what I needed to hear.


  16. i'm planning on having that kind of weekend myself. praying that yours is memorable in the best sort of way.

    ps i'd like to personally crown whoever (whomever? heck, who knows) invented naps.

    I'm making those punkin miniatures! Kitchen SkillZ be damned! <---I'm a bad chef/"okay" baker.


  20. I'm just popping in to say I love your blog. I had to catch up on the last few posts, and it mae me feel better- like I'm not the only one. The edges are so raw these days, and your words made me realize that I can do all of it. And that there are other women out there in the same boat. Thanks.

  21. Hope you all had a good time!

  22. love sleeping babies and parties with friends and good food.....
