What made me happy today...

Today has been a happy day.  A major prayer of mine was answered and I have been smiling all day.  When hubby and I met nearly 10 years ago, we both attended different Baptist churches. I have been at my church for over 15 years.  He had been at his for quite a few years as well.  We have visited many churches over the last few years trying to find a new church where both of us would be happy together.  He has since left that church and has been coming to mine for quite some time.  It has been a prayer and hope of mine for a very long time that God would put it upon his heart to join and become a part of our church where I am a member.  Several weeks ago, he told me we needed to talk.  He told me he was ready to join and knew it was the right thing to do.  Today he did just that.  I couldn't have been any happier.  We are now together at a church.  We are both happy.  Thank you Lord for answering prayers.

Speaking of prayers, this warmed my heart tonight.
As we sat down for supper, Darbee Rae informed all of us not to eat yet.  She had to say the blessing.  She sings a sweet blessing song that she learned at school each time.  Luckily I had my cell phone right beside me and was able to snap a quick picture of her.  Love her sweet hands. 

What has warmed your heart today? 
I hope all of you have had a nice Sunday. 
Until next time.....


  1. Holly,
    So happy that you are both together at the same church.
    Oh how I love to hear litte ones say prayer...what a sweet picture of Darbee Rae. I used to be a preschool teacher at our church and I loved it when the wee ones said their prayers.
    My 2 year old grandson warmed my heart today when he said..."Love you maw-maw."
