The Lamb of God

To You, from Little Susie Home Maker

Hello sweet friends!
I wanted to share with you this little graphic that I made and with you all the best for this Holiday Weekend.
I really have not had the time to spend on blogging that I used to have, but I do still think about all my blogging buddies and wonder what you are all up to. I am looking forward to a great weekend with my very own family out of town. 

I know it will be tough to have our first holiday without Daddy. We all miss him so much. I remember every since I was a little girl he would help us decorate eggs and then he always loved an Easter Egg hunt. But more importantly, He would give us a bible lesson. (Which he did anytime we were around, anyways!)
Momma is doing as well as she can, and we are all surrounding her with as much love as we can.

It is a great thing to be able to spend time with people I love and I know that I am blessed.
 I am so thankful for my Savior and what He did and why we are celebrating this weekend, so that each and everyone of us have the opportunity to be together with Him again forever.

I will also indulge in a little chocolate and some other fancy treats. I know I will have fun with all the children and play a few games, and exchange in great conversations, etc.

I hope you make time to be thankful and praise Him for what He has done. He is so wonderful.

Too much SPAM

I have too much SPAM!
No, not this kind. I might actually enjoy that.
I have been deleting so much SPAM from my comments lately.
Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem recently?
I feel like turning back on Word Verification, 
but really don't want to do that as of yet.
Please tell me how you feel about the sudden increase in SPAM and how you feel about Word Verification? I really would like to know.
 Thank you for all your comments. I want you to know that I appreciate every single one of your comments!

Looking forward to Spring and the New Life that it brings.

Spring Cleaning Anyone

It is time to think about and do some Spring Cleaning! I love being able to open some windows and circulate some fresh air on warm enough days.. don't you?

I had been visiting over at Heirloom Treasures and it is a really sweet blog by Jeanette O'Donnell, she loves to sew Christening Gowns and sell them, garden in her cottage garden and she is also an author!

I was so please when she told me that I won her book in a recent give-away she held!

This is a great book, written for working mums. (Jeanette is from Australia, I love how they say "Mum"!)
But I think any body who is in need of some great tips on how to get organized and streamline the household chores. She writes it in Seven Easy Steps that can get the whole family helping out!

Jeanette, thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I don't want to give away her steps, but you should go visit here blog and see all her pretty ideas she has. And see about purchasing her book, too!

It will get your Spring Cleaning all geared up and be ready for sunmmer!

Blessings to you all,

Thank you...

I want to thank each and everyone of you for all the prayers and warm thoughts, the encouragement, and love. Your sentiments have meant the world to me while going through such a rough time. I know I have not had time to thank everyone individually. Please know that all of you are a blessing to me, even if I have not had time to come thank you in a personal note. I am very blessed to have been blessed by you!
Thank you so much,

Stop for the View

It is March which brings our minds to Spring. I am sure looking forward to warmer weather. But March doesn't really mean warm weather just yet! Here in Colorado you can never predict the weather and we get a lot of snow this time of year. Are you still getting snow? It is great for pretty picture taking! I love to stop along the side of the road and take pretty pictures when I have time.


I can never complain about the view! This is Pikes Peak in the Rocky Mountain Range. I have to admit I think it is about the most beautiful mountain ranges ever. When covered with snow it just highlights every little nook and valley! I love to stop and take pictures like this one. I have this view every day and am so thankful for being blessed to live in such a beautiful area! 

No, these are not my horses, but I had to take a pretty picture of them to share with you, too. 
Do you like to stop along side the road and take pictures too?

I am trying to get ready for Spring, but this is what it is like for Springtime here!!

Blessings from Colorado,

It's Looking Like Fall Again

Just wanted to pop in and say hello. I know it's been a very long while. Are you all getting ready for Fall? It has been so warm here...
