My First Cookware!


My friend April and her Mama gave a late graduation gift this week. I was so excited because this is some of the things I will need in the future. April knows and I'm sure anybody that has been on my blog enough knows, that I desire to be a Homemaker and to someday raise a family and be a Godly wife and mother.
So receiving this gift was an encouragement to me this week. This week has been a tough one, after hearing a very good sermon on Sunday night, and being convicted and encouraged. I was determined to have a great week and try my best to serve the Lord and be an encouragement. The devil has tried very hard to discourage me and my family this week, through many ways. But I've decided to keep pressing on, I have had a lot of talks with my family, how the devil is been this week, and at one point it's like,'' Why is the devil on me, and my family?'' Our church is so small and I feel like I could do so much more for the Lord. But maybe the devil just doesn't like Christian people being an encouragement, so he is out to stop us. But I'll just keep serving the Lord, and with a happy and full of life attitude, Live Joyfully in the lord.

Oh, I love getting gifts like that! And I'm not sure if I am the only strange one who does this, but I love to look at every little thing my hope chest at least once a month. Reminds me of how God is preparing me for my future, both spiritually and physically.
