    My sweet hubs added crown molding and beadboard to my outdated 1980's oak cabinets. He then painted them a creamy cottage white. I love the brushed silver pulls he put on the doors and drawers.

OMG, The tears are streaming down my cheeks!! That sweet child can teach a lot of us to be more like her. How wonderful that she has such a wonderful relationship with our Lord and Saviour!! I do not see how you can't keep the tears from falling when you hear those sweet prayers. OM, Her prayers are just wonderful and that she can see all of God goodness and gifts to us at her young age!! What an inspiration! Thank you for sharing that with us!! Congratulations on you winning the award too! I can tell by the words you use when talking about your school and the children you teach, that you are very passionate about them!!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Your hearts are amazing! Thank you again for allowing me to join in the swap!


Congratulations! The ones who deserve the most recognition are the ones who think they don't deserve it at all.

You are so lucky to be teaching that sweet little girl and her classmates! And they are blessed to have you as their teacher. Your swap valentines turned out really pretty. I'm sure your fellow swappers will love them!

I totally agree with Chris...often times, the ones that deserve recognition don't see it in themselves. Congratulations to YOU and that sweet little girl. Your Valentines are just precious.

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. 2 Cor 2:18.....that's you my dear! You & that sweet little girl...looking more& more like your awesome! Your valentines are so sweet! Happy weekend!...

Oh, I absolutely LOVE your post! Such a joyous story... I also teach Kindergarten, and am always amazed by these kiddos. I love the extreme "highs" and "lows" of this age, their innocence, their acceptance of all that is good. Your blog is beautiful; this was my first visit, but I will be back soon :) Many thanks for visiting me and for your nice comments.

Your valentines are so sweet.
Blessings and hugs, Jeanne

If my beautiful daughter can be compared to you...then I am the lucky mother....I have never met a teacher that cared so much about her students!! so Thank you... you are as amazing as my daughter!!


I am soooooo sorry for being so tardy in reading your PS post, Patti!! However, I have to say, that not only did I enjoy this one, I caught up on lots of your recent writings! I've been so bad about reading my favorite blogs has just gotten so crazy that I've let that part of my life slide. However, you are a long time fav and I will try very hard to make my visits more consistent. I love your posts and your amazing really boost my spirits and make me want to get busy and "create"!!

This was such a sweet story! In my former life : ) I was a speech therapist and worked with young kiddos for 20 years....mostly part time after my own babies arrived. I enjoyed the little ones so very much...they just add so much to our lives! I'm certain they all feel very blessed to have you for their teacher!

I didn't realize you were such a Valentine nut!! I LOVE them!!! In fact, I'm involved in a Valentine Swap right now and have to get busy and get mine made!!! I don't have the 'stash' to go to like you, but I'm sure I will come up with something!! :)

Hope you have a great Sunday....and a fantastic Valentine's Day!!

What a sweet post, Patti! In a world that is so full of fear and worry...It's so comforting to know there is an "Oasis" that exists in so many places. Destiny is an oasis with her little heart of praise. What a priceless cherub. Her prayer is destined to reach heaven with the sweetest fragrance attached.
Your passion, Patti, is so uplifting...It's contagious and encouraging to those whose lives you touch.
Blessings, dear heart,
Carolynn xoxo
