We finished reading Dangerous Journey last week. So. Awesome. I was surprised by how well it stayed true to the full-length version. Pilgrim’s progress was a book that wasn’t particularly life-changing when I read it, but my mind keeps returning to its details.
Working with the dog on the “place” command. For the most part she’s not allowed to roam the house freely. However, she’s allowed to hang in the living room on occasion when she’s in “place”. I’m enjoying dog ownership more and more all the time!
Oh boy, this verse is resonating lately. My plans for Q1 and Q2 of 2018? Have a baby. Enjoy baby. Enjoy early summer. Actual life? Have baby. Get sick for 2 months. Take care of family while enduring pnemonia. Help family while husband recovers from surgery.
The good news amidst changed-up plans? This answer is from the Lord (Proverbs 16). And that means it is for my good, and for his glory. Hooray!
This guy is two months old and growing like a weed. Chickweed. The kind that is taking over my garden. I’m just contentedly telling people that I’ve become a chickweed farmer. But really, I’ve been busy farming babies. I’m ok with that trade-off.
It has been my tradition the last few years to write the kids notes for mother’s day. I started this tradition after reading an encouraging article about the inevitable let-down of mother’s day. Especially if you have a bazillion young kids and an overworked husband. The article pointed out the obvious; what’s more important about mother’s day than highlighting the love that exists in that relationship? Now, instead of being bummed about the fact that my kids don’t always exhibit exuberant thankfulness for me on a certain May day (ha!), I focus the day on my thankfulness for them.
And that, my friends, changes everything.
What’s new with you this week?
