Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought I'd take the chance to update and wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Eden and I are in TN visiting family and having lots of fun. Our trip started out a little rough when I got the stomach bug... yuk... thankfully my mom was here and took Eden and I slept for 24 hours straight. I am feeling MUCH better though, thankfully! Today, Eden and I went to the 'boro to see Nana and Papa Joe which is always fun and I think we are going to take it easy the rest of the week and enjoy a week with NO doctors appointments:)

Many of you know that Josh is spending the week in Africa hosting Runners Camp!!! (don't worry, he's not attempting this alone, there is a team there!) He sent me a few pictures (which I can't upload right now, but I will later) and it is stunning - they have already had one race and just looking at pictures, I know that he is LOVING his time there already... there's not much he loves more than running!! I read this this morning and thought I would share it here and ask you all to pray for him while he is gone. (Its from John Piper's book, "Pierced by the Word":

Great God of overflowing grace,
move our hearts to pray for
Your saving power among the nations,
Burden us with the plight of people who
have no access to the Gospel,
Grant us to pray big, global
God-sized, Bible-saturated prayers.
Don't let us lose sight of the one lost sheep nearby.
But, O Father, give us a passion for Your
Worldwide purpose to call Your sheep from
every people of the earth.
For the glory of Christ
and in His Name we pray, Amen.

On the ETSY front... I've had lots of sale lately which is very exciting... and I was even more excited this morning when I realized I was featured on a blog I frequently read!!!! The author also happens to be the owner of a fabric shoppe I have bought from.... Check it out by clicking the link below (note... she update much more frequently than me, so you many have to scroll back a few days to find me - I was featured on 11.22.08)
