Sugar Pop Ribbons has a SWEET giveaway going on right now!

 You can check it out here:
Sugarpopribbons Giveaway!


I am trying to win this for Brianna, my 20 month old who loves this kind of stuff. I love Step 2 products and actually had a cottage for my other kids, but ended up donating it to another family when my 7 year old grew out of it, wouldn't you know it a couple months later, to my surprise I find out we were expecting again. Money is a little tight right now, so here is a great opportunity to be able to win an awesome Countryside Cottage Playhouse for hours of imaginative play!
I just came upon Sugarpopribbons blog, and I love it, check it out!

Amen to That!

Prayer Before an Exam
O wise God, I pray that my mind might be rested, my body energized, and my spirit inspired for the exam I must write.
Grant me peace and assurance so that I might do the best I am able, regardless of what that might be.
Be with my fellow students and may I be a good example to them, offering reassurance and confidence regardless of how I feel.
May I be honest and insightful, and able to give a true record of what I have learned. In the end, may any disappointment be born with grace, and any joy accompanied with humility.
I write this exam with Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.


Prayer For Peace of Mind
In this time of anxiety, O loving God, grant me peace of mind. Quiet any distress and allow me to see clearly my mission and discipleship.
I pray for my examiners as well as for myself, so that they might be wise in their questioning so that it will allow for a true accounting of my learning and understanding.
May the memory of my family and friends remind me of their support, regardless of outcome, united with them in the spirit of love.
May I be wise enough to gain enough rest so all might be ready, my thoughts organized, and my life dedicated to serve Thee whatever the cost, through the love of Jesus Christ, my Saviour. Amen.
