Marinating ...

Lot's going on and yet really not definable yet ... we are praying for God's next step in our lives to be revealed and in the meantime, here's some of what and where I have been pondering ...
  • About children and parenting ... My sentiments exactly. Children are a BLESSING, not an inconvenience!
  • A great question ... Am I just believing or am I relying?
  • Um, yah, this one stuck with me ... "It wasn't that I didn't love God ... it was that I didn't love Him MORE than all that other crap I had allowed to accumulate in my heart. It was that He was competing for my affections ... I had fallen more in love with what had been given to me than with the One who gave it."
  • How many times have I thought I was better ... Because we all deserve stoning ...
  • Gazing at Daddy ... How I want to look at Him ...
  • Something to think about ... "Just because I don't have doesn't mean I am in poverty. Poverty is when you have everything in the world and yet you are still lonely," she said with wise eyes.

I love the Destiny in Bloom post. A friend posted that and after reading it I told her that if the hospital bills were a little cheaper we'd have 12 ballistic missiles b/c we just love kids so much and they are cheaper by the dozen ;). I also forwarded it to Jarrod and he thought it was great. I can't count on my hands how many people come up to us and ask 'you know how that happens right?"Thanks for the great post. Miss you guys!
