Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Wish I could come over and hep you do a quick clean! I pray your MIL will only see the good, the clean, the beautiful aspects of your home like the precious children smiling back at her. :-)

Your menu looks scrumptious!

Folks always say "I don't know how you do it all" but I only school 1 right now and the smaller ones just have to be played with . "I" don't know how YOU do it all with your littles and a newborn .

You are an inspritaion!

Praying you have a very blessed and productive week!

Oh, and you are right. The impossible cheeseburger pie does make it's own crust.

Thank you Heather for the friendly reminder! I also had a friend that delivered her baby 4 weeks early because she was overdoing it! I need to remember to rest, rest, rest...

Your new little one looks so precious. I am excited about our next blessing!
Have a wonderful week!
