Natalie Faith


I have a beautiful granddaughter who was born on Monday morning.

I am so very thankful for her.

Her name is Natalie Faith.

Because of COVID I couldn’t go to the hospital. My plan is to bring my mum to see her tomorrow. 

I bought this large candle last year and only lit it for the first time this week. 

It smells like peonies and the melted wax looks like a flower. It’s so pretty. 

I made this activity for my toddlers at work and they really liked it! Bubble wrap inside a zip-lock bag with primary coloured paint. Red and blue for purple, yellow and blue for green, and yellow and red for orange. I taped up the opening quite tightly!

We finally got some snow. It wasn’t very much but it looked pretty 

against all the old homes as I drove to work. 

I picked up the prettiest  potted mini daffodils at the market the other day.

They were so pretty I picked up a pot for my mum as well. 

Natalie Faith was born with a low birth weight. She also had to go under the bilirubin lights for 24 hours. 

She seems to be nursing well (every 3 hours) but if you are inclined I would ask for your prayers for her

And for my daughter. She has a 4 year old and a 2 year old and will be very busy. 

I would be very thankful.

Thankful Thursday

Friday fave fives


  1. Of course I will pray for her! I am the Prayer Lady at church, I manage our prayer line. Little Natalie is adorable! And I am glad there is a hand in the photo, so I can get an idea of her size. Keep us posted on how she is doing. Will her mom have any help? Does her dad work from home? I adore the blue house with the white picket fence! I bet the kids were overjoyed with the caft! And where did you find this candle?

  2. that's a really neat candle!
    Yay for newborns....but wow....yup, mama will have her hands full. Does the 4 year old go to preschool? that would help! :) Love the craft idea...we do something similar for our students with sensory issues. So fun!
    stay warm this weekend!

  3. Congratulations on your new granddaughter! She's adorable. I just took a moment to pray for her and your daughter and for the other kids to adjust well to the new addition.. What a neat activity for your students. The mini daffodils are so pretty.

  4. Sending up prayers for Natalie Faith. What a precious gift. Thank you for linking up and have a great weekend.

  5. Congratulations to everyone! Natalie Faith is just perfect and I love her name. Prayers for her and for her mommy, too!

  6. Congratulations on your new granddaughter. she's gorgeous. I hope she's home by now and continuing to do well with her feeding. Yes your daughter will be busy - my elder two were not quite 2 & 4 when my youngest was born and it was hectic. I was lucky to have my Mum nearby who helped us a lot.

  7. Prayers for dear Natalie and her busy mum!

  8. Congratulations to your whole family on the birth of Natalie Faith. Yes, I will pray for her to thrive.
    I love that photo of the snow topped tree and the blue house in the background. It makes me want to repaint my house that color!

  9. What a precious baby girl! Congratulations to your whole family! I will pray for her and for Mom too. I've never smelt a peony candle before. I'm still burning my favorite from the winter scents. Snow does make things lovely looking!
