fun find friday

I've got some goodies for you to enjoy this week!

A Little Music:
Seeds CD

As a rule, I'm pretty picky about the Christian music I listen to. Cheesy Christian music makes my head hurt.

These days, two sets of little ears are soaking up everything around them - so I've been willing to forgo my personal musical preference for music that will speak truth into my kiddo's lives. This CD seems to be a little bit of a compromise.

22 year-old Jennifer would roll her eyes and something like,
"Oh, come ON... Kids need to be exposed to all kinds of music. We can't shelter them forever. It's important for them to understand the world around them...blah, blah, blah."
and then 32 year-old Jennifer would tell 22 year-old Jennifer to shut it.

I don't know about you, but 22 year-old Jennifer is starting to get on my last nerve.

The lyrics on this CD are taken directly from scripture and the songs are really catchy. I find myself singing Zephaniah 3:17 all the time. A fact which kinda makes my soul happy...you know?

AND - If we can get the penny out of my car's CD player, maybe we can listen to it again.

Incidentally, "ERR!" is what I say when I see that stupid "Error" message on my CD player.

Some Shoes:
Tom's Shoes

A few months ago, David and I went to a conference at Fellowship in Grapevine, TX. They gave a pair of Tom's to every person who was registered for the conference. NIce, huh?

The really cool thing about Tom's Shoes is that for every purchased pair of shoes, a pair is donated to a needy person in a third world country.

They even have little kid shoesies too...Check out these itty bitty ones:

Some Stuff for the House:
off the wall home

I found these at a local store this week and l-o-v-e them. I've seen them other places too and am always drawn to them. They are huge and pretty, pretty, pretty.
Maybe one day I'll learn to make them...

Some Stuff I Found On Etsy:
paper cut art

How's that for talent? Wow.

This cute little sign from Jenny's Bakeshop

My sentiments exactly...

Cute finds! Now if we could just get rid of that Err. I gave you a shout out on my blog because I have a pic of Jamison twisting her hair.

have you tried masking tape wrapped around a popsicle stick (obviously, wrap the tape sticky side out).

it worked FABULOUSLY when my toddler fed about $1.50 worth of coins into my cassette player.

where did you find the frames??

Housewife Savant said...

Kid-friendly music; I can see BOTH Jennifers' points. For the sake of the children I'm asking; are you familiar with Steve Green's "Hide 'Em in Your Heart"?
I'm sure you've heard of it.
But maybe not.
You probably have the CDs.
But what if...?
Jus' saying.

Colored With Memories said...

like your above commenter, we've been listening to steve green's for years now. they are good, but i'm guessing they'd be classified as cheesy...the girls like them though! all that said i am anxious to get this CD you mentioned...let them soak it up, lord!
