It started with a few raindrops.
Then a deluge of water!
At first, the mommy in me said, "You can't play in the mud. Think of the stains and dirty hands!!"
But they were enjoying the moment.
So, I gave in...
and enjoyed it too!

It ended with with this.
The assurance that God is the ultimate promise keeper!!

I'm unwrapping this moment with Emily at Chatting at the Sky!!


  1. I remember playing in the rain and the puddles at my grandparent's house as a little girl. So much fun!

    I am visiting from Julia's Hooked on Party. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am VERY late in responding...I wanted to thank you for stopping by and commenting. :) I WANT to be the mom that doesn't have a heart attack over mud pies. I am trying!! ;)

  3. Sweet...sometime we have to be reminded that mud is good :) Thanks for sharing!


  4. HI! I saw your comment on Mckmama! I wanted to share my website with you:
    I will be donating a portion of all sales to the String of pearls to help families and babies like Stellan! I am trying to get it out there in any way I can! Please let your family, friends etc. I would really appreciate it!
    Thanks!! :)

  5. looks like the mud was a hit! good for you for giving in and saying yes! and that sky... peeking up at Him!

  6. There is not much that is more fun than mud squishing between toes and fingers and freedom to actually play in the rain! You are a wonderful momma.

  7. I'm sure they will remember that freedom and joy, and hopefully you'll forget the extra laundry :)

  8. What's a little extra mess in light of a beautiful muddy memory anyway? :)

  9. Bravo! May we all "give in" and enjoy the moment more often! :-)
