The Wonder of Faith

Yesterday an "On this day" reminder popped up on my social media feed with a post from a few years ago.  
I read it and began to cry.  I remember that day.  I remember writing that post.  

I was on a business trip a few hours away from home and I got a call from my husband telling me the twins went to Bible Study with him.  He said they stood tall and asked the pastor if they could be baptized.

I remember shouting "Hallelujah" over and over again.  The decision was theirs and theirs alone.  I wasn't there to sway them one way or another, they did it and they were steadfast in their decision.  

Then last Sunday as I watched from the choirstand as my children received communion I felt a #ProudMommyMoment as one of the little ones received communion for the first time.

She knelt down at the altar, cupped her hands to receive the gift of bread and wine.  Her mom stood behind her beaming with a mother's pride.  Her uncle stood nearby and snapped a pic just as the pastor bent down and placed the pasty wafer in her tiny hands.  "Thank you" she said as she smacked on the communion wafer.

After receiving communion her mom led her down the aisle back to their pew.  The smiles on both their faces spoke volumes.  

One of my favorite Christian music artists, Hillsong United, recently released a CD titled "Wonder".  The 12-track CD features songs of hope, faith and praise.   

Hillsong United is back with a spirit filled, 
12-track CD titled "Wonder"
 My favorite track is the title track "Wonder".  The lyrics are:  "Have you ever seen the wonder in the glimmer of first sight; As the eyes begin to open and the blindness meets the light".

Capitol Music Group wants to share Wonder by Hillsong United with you.  One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will win a CD of their very own.

The only tour I see is in Texas. That is too far for me. I will continue to look for more tours.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
