My New Look

I'm so excited about the new look my blog is taking. I haven't been happy with the look of this blog for a while but didn't know how to make changes. I thought about hiring someone to do a makeover on it. Finally I prayed and what do you know but I found a site that helped me re-do it all on my own!


I've still got more work to do. I need to update the profile and I want to start adding pictures. I love reading blogs that are personal and have pictures.

I've worked on getting the print as dark as possible to make it easier on the eyes to read. If anyone has any comments or suggestions I would love to hear them.

I'm going to take this blog in a lighter, different direction. I've thought of starting another...but I love to journal about Him! So I'm keeping the title the same but my post topics will including more personal, family stuff going on in my life.

This morning the kids and I are off to church. Javier left early this morning for a bike race. Thankfully a friend picked him up since we are sharing a car right now. I was worried I wouldn't have a ride to church.

It's my turn to teach the preschool class! Yippe!

My heartfelt prayer: Dear Jesus, Please come into my day right now. I pray you will walk with me into the classroom and be by my side as I share about your amazing love. I pray you will send angels down to surround my children, especially Lorenzo. Give me special wisdom to lead the class while still wearing my mother "hat." Love, Jennifer

Your new blog is beautiful! I would love to give my blog a makeover as well, and I see we both use blogspot. Would you please give me the URL of the place online that let you work on this new look? It's amazing, and I love the 3D look!

I've been following your blog for ages, and am inspired by how God has worked in your life. You've been through a lot, and you have a lot to share with the world.

Have a beautiful day in San Juan!

Jennifer, it looks great. Your Mother would be so proud of it and you. Keep sharing your heart, for out of the heart come the issues of life, and a heart filled with Christs' Spirit can only bless all with what flows out to others.

Seedplanter, Thanks for the compliments! I'd be glad to share my "secret" It's called That site is AWESOME. They give tips and provide free backgrounds etc.

Thom, Thanks! That means a lot. I think she'd be proud of it too. She wanted to change the look of her blog right before she got sick, but was then too sick to do it.

Jennifer, thank you! I'm going to check out that website and see if I can pretty my blog up, too. You've inspired me!

I agree with Thom. Your mom would be awed by your beautiful design. You write from the heart, and this is going to be a winning combination. I look forward to following your posts.
