A Man's Own House--from Abigail

Hi, it's Abbie here. Just want to say thanks to all, for all your prayers and personal emails to my mom during a very difficult time in our life. I think we are on our way to peace and safety. It's hard for my mommy to ask for help but she did and to those who were so understanding and supportive through prayers and being there, we want to especially thank you, because we would do it for you if you asked during such a hardship.

We had to stay in hotels for 17 days in the Fall of the year to stay safe. And although I tried to stretch out and take it easy, I still prefer home.

When I'm home, this is one of my favorite spots,

because I can see the front porch and alert my mommy to anything

and I can watch my mom stitch, read and design too

Although the past 6 months have been stressful to say the least

I love my mom and she loves me.  And there's no place like HOME!

Several people left us in our lives during this time because they didn't understand,
but because God understands, He saved our lives.

 We still need your prayers as we transition at home, and we know God will take care of us, even me.

While away and during the difficult times, my mommy would like to give you a freebie she designed so that you can put it in your special home too or give it as a gift
~~~~ Because we both know that there's no place like home.

no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.
For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.  verses 9-11 (NIV)

We both hope you have a good Sunday, a restful day for the week ahead and again thank you,

  3. Abigail your mom is such an amazing and strong person. Although I don't know what all you both have struggled with, I can see by her words that she is inspiring as she is strong.

    Like the name of your blog--Feathers in the Nest---something as delicate as a feather when layered-makes a nest strong enough to withstand the strongest catastrophes.

  4. Give thanks to your mom for this beautiful chart Abi.

  12. Dear Jennifer and Abbie - I am so thankful that you are both safe and it grieved my heart to know that you have been through so much. I pray that the Lord will continue to keep you safe and warm in your own home. Thank you for another beautiful chart that is going on my "to do" list. You're so sweet to make these charts and share them. They totally bless me.
