A basketball in my hands is worth about $19. A basketball in Michael Jordan's hands is worth about $33 million. It depends whose hands it's in.
A baseball in my hands is worth about $6. A baseball in Roger Clemens' hands is worth $4.75 million. It depends on whose hands it's in.
A tennis racket is useless in my hands. A tennis racket in Andre Agassi's hands is worth millions. It depends whose hands it's in.
A rod in my hands will keep away an angry dog.A rod in Moses' hands will part the mighty sea. It depends whose hands it's in.
A slingshot in my hands is a kid's toy. A slingshot in David's hand is a mighty weapon. It depends whose hands it's in.
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches. Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in Jesus' hands will feed thousands. It depends whose hands it's in.
Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse. Nails in Jesus Christ's hands produced salvation for the entire world. It depends whose hands it's in.
As you see now, it depends whose hands it's in. So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families and your relationships in God's hands because... It depends whose hands it's in.

Last night, after Greg fell asleep (early, I might add) I sat and played around with some ribbon and this is what I made. I took the directions for another ribbon project and made them work for my idea. The result was a bunny clip. I really like how it turned out. Sorry the pics are alittle blurry but the camera is on its last leg.

Looking all adorable with the egg
Tune in tomorrow night for Easter Day Pictures. And have a VERY BLESSED EASTER!!

Greg is very Irish and I have some Irish heritage on my Mom's side so we usually enjoy celebrating the day. but alas with two children it just isn't going to happen this year. Maybe we'll have a green beer or two. Today is a special day for Greg and I. After meeting Greg in a bar (scandalous I know), we had our first date on St Patty's Day. Since I did meet him in a bar and I am a smart girl I took a friend with me on our first date. Greg took us to a St Patty's day party and well the rest is history. We have been together 7 years today. I thank God everyday that he lead Greg and I to each other.
Today also marks Liliana being home one month. If I'm being honest, then I'd have to say that this past month has been a truly difficult one. Toby has finally settled down, except for nighttime but we're getting there. Liliana has gone from hours of crying to just crying when she's really tired. I still have not figured out what she needs when she needs it but I'm getting better. This child also never naps unless I'm holding her and that is not really a viable option so she is tired alot. I might see a different child if she weren't. We are just beginning to develop that Mother-child bond that is so important. She'll now smile when I come in the room and she'll sometimes fuss when I leave it. She also will only sleep for me which is also good.On a scale from 1-10 I'd say we're at a 5 or 6, which isn't bad cause we were probably at a 1 or 2. I'm pointing this out because I know that there will be someone that comes to this blog to see what it's like after coming home and I want to portray our family life realistically, so the bad with all the good. And so that family knows that this is a work in progress and it does not happen over night, so all the thing I ask of you are important. Also family and friends we would LOVE for you to visit us whenever you get a chance. I'd really appreciate a day's notice for visits but I'd be happy to see any of you whenever. Oh and I couldn't pass this up....too funny....

Playing with a replica of the Trolley (The museum has replicas of Mister Rogers Neighbborhood which was filmed in Pittsburgh. In fact when I was younger we visited the studio a couple of times. Mister Rogers was my favorite.)
Laughing at the boy next to him. He was making the fish "jump" in the air.
X the Owl ... I mean Toby
