Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. James 1:12-13

21 Years Ago Today

Good Morning friends! Hello new friends! So glad to have you all stop by for a visit.  It is dark here. It will thunder storm today.

Twenty-one years ago today Brian and I were wed. Here is a picture for you of us at my high school Sweethearts Dance. Brian had graduated from Pius XI already. This was about 4 months before I graduated high school.
Notice our pink roses? ;) And my pale pink leather pumps? ♥

I have been stitching away on the Barbara Ana SAL I am doing with Vicki, Annette and Donna. This is how far I have gotten.
Isn't is sweet?! I just love it.♥
I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies the other night.One batch just will not last around here. I have a question for you. Do you eat the cookie dough too? ;) We are all just mad for it around here. It is not good for you I do know this, but, well. And we only eat a small amount, really!

That's it for now friends. I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Awww you both look so adorable! I really do love the pink pumps...and noses, too. :)

You've made a lot of progress on our SAL. I will have pictures tomorrow. I am really enjoying this SAL...I can tell already that I am gonna have to get another skein of 898 for the tree though...it's a big tree!

Wishing you a most wonderful day sweet friend, one that is filled with many blessings...oh, and I loved the beautiful pics from your garden, too. :)

Happy Anniversary to you and Brian! You both look so cute with your pink flowers and, you, with your pink pumps! I love that you were high school sweethearts - there's something so special about that. :)

Love your flowers, too, and your new cross stitch project. I'm trying to stay strong and not go and buy that magazine for that pattern...we shall see. lol

Praying for you, my friend! Have a lovely day and Happy Anniversary again!

Blessings - Julie
