Alright, yall will NOT believe this! You know how I delight in the small things of life. And its no secret that I love, love, love it when God shows up right in the middle of something silly and blesses me! Well, I am telling you, you aren't going to believe this...
If you know me well, you know that I love Christian author/teacher Beth Moore. I have done several of her bible studies with my Mom over the years, read her books, and every time Beth is close to us, we typically go! Her book, "Praying God's Word" provided such comfort and even produced a real-life friendship with one of her friends who wrote a section in the book, right after we lost our Cooper. So to say that Beth has a special place in my heart and that I love and respect her is an understatement! I can go on to say that all the women in my immediate family LOVE Beth! (Yeah, we all act like we are on a first name basis-- ha ha)... My Aunt & cousin even went on a cruise to Greece with Beth several years ago... alright, so yall get the picture, we LOVE her!
So, if you've been reading my blog, you'll remember these posts about the Snuggie:
Well, imagine my delight when tonight I check my blog list and see that the LPM blog has a new post (Beth's blog). I excitedly click on it, thinking its going to be more pictures of her sweet new granddaughter (who's name is Annabeth... (close to Annabelle)... I am telling you, if I lived in Houston, I know those Moore girls and I would be BFFs!) Well, it turns out, its a post titled "A Plea for Community"--- I didn't immediately see pictures, and almost didn't read the post tonight... but I did... and I am telling you, you aren't going to believe this.... BETH bought a SLANKET!!! (it's the higher end version of the Snuggie, or so I think). There are even pictures of Beth in her Slanket! I have laughed until I cried. And I am claiming this one as my blessing of the day!
Here's the link to the post: http://livingproofministries.blogspot.com/2009/02/plea-for-community.html
So it's official, if Beth Moore has a Slanket, well, I must make another public apology to the Snuggie!
Thank you God, for having such sense of humor and for knowing me so well.
