Don't delete the "Bad" Ones

Hanging on to a few of the funny pictures as a 
of his silly personality 
that makes my heart

Good things I am thankful for today:

A laughing 3 year old to wake me up bright and early

Creamy coffee

A husband who is diligent in his work

Sunshine streaming through the window saying
"You have the gift of another day, make the most of it!"

A clean kitchen, at least for the moment
So glad I decided to spend the extra time last night putting it back in order
Choosing today to acknowledge goodness.

Hoping you find it too!

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
He saved us.
Titus 3:4-5

Monday, Monday

Three of the greatest treasures on this earth.

Rejoicing in their lives today and renewing my commitment to God to raise them intentionally for Him.

This week will be laid back around here.

Thank goodness!

Last week was overflowing with outside activities and play dates.

Being busy can sometimes cause you to lose focus.
(me anyway)

Getting back to the important things in life today and walking by faith in the one who gives us HOPE.

What are you focusing on this week?

Psalm 138:8

The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
 your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever.
   Do not forsake the work of your hands.

A Reminder

Have you ever been in need of a reminder?

What's your purpose in this life?

Are you on the right path?

These questions needed answers.

So I went to the Word!

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Psalm 119:105

Hiding God's word in your heart comes in handy when you're struggling.

He led me to Ephesians 2:10.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works...

Thank you God!!

Lately I've been



Being silent




So now while I wait and listen, I will trust.

Vowing not to listen to the enemies lies!

Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yields no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, 

yet I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. 
God, the Lord is my strength: 

he makes my feet like the deer's: 
he makes me tread on high places.

Habakkuk 3:17-19

Proverbs 16:20

Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who

Remembering my father today.
The life he lived was one worth celebrating.

I am grateful that my children have a father who loves them and chooses to bring them up in the "discipline and instruction of the Lord."

I praise my Father in heaven who gave his only Son so that I might live.

Because of that sacrifice, I know what love is.

Happy Father's Day.

 This morning I passed by our back door and saw this.
I was able to capture the moment without being noticed.
Such a sweet picture of complete peace and solitude
if but for just a moment.
Sophie is really into sniffing flowers these days.
She insists on stopping at every flower we pass.
"Mommy", she says, "Smell this one."

I treasure this time.
My children's lives are innocent and sweet.

Hope you have a terrific weekend.

Any magnificent plans?
We're just hanging out looking forward to doing

It's Gone!!

I have lost my voice and can't find it. 

I have searched and searched, but to no avail, my voice has left. 

I have high hopes that it will return tomorrow.

In the mean time, my house is pretty quiet with lots of whispering.

Even the kids are whispering which may be the only benefit to losing your voice.

Since I have no voice, I'll let others share theirs today.
