Life in Grace

I have a friend, well we have never met but she is my go to girl. She probably has no idea the light that she has shined in my life. Every morning for the past few years while my kids are quietly eating there breakfast I take my coffee and read her blog. I have made almost every one of her recipes and coveted every project she does. I am also painting my armoire turquoise in her honor. I think she had me at turquoise. You know who I am talking about, the famous turquoise kitchen. It is her birthday today and she is broken. I am all about lifting a sister up so happy birthday Edie. You do not know me, but you have inspired me, encouraged me, challenged me, made me laugh and have taught me a thing or too in the kitchen. Your Strawberry butter cream dream cake about rocked my world and the Strawberry freezer jam that you know have me addicted too has changed the lives of many.

You love the Lord with a passion that is contagious and your devotion to your family makes me try harder. Thank you sister for caring as deeply as you do, for sharing your heart so freely.

I am excited to see this new journey that the Lord has you on. I can only imagine the things He has in store for you.

I thought I would share a picture of the cupcakes I made from Edies dreamy cake recipe.

Thank you for blessing me so abundantly. Now link up friends and lets bless another sister on her birthday she could use a little sunshine.

life in grace

What a kind post! I'm sure this will make Edie very happy to read--a lovely testimony to how much she means to you. God's light just shines from her, doesn't it?

Unfortunately I just learned of Edie and her wonderfulness..she is a real inspiration and her faith will guide her through these dark times.

Count your blessings!
