forty-five: Go in peace and laugh on Glory's side...fly to Jesus.

Good bye for now, brave small boy
I can't believe I didn't get to sit and endlessly sniff this precious head.
Look at all of this hair!
Perfection.

Hardly even seems fathomable that it's been 45 Thursdays.
I don't have much time, as it's our last day at the homeschool group and one million other things I need to accomplish today.

I had a dream last night. a weird one. I had another baby (impossible), a girl, and she was ill. She was going to die. I still took her to the mall. I pushed her around in a stroller and watched her. worried all the time. I woke up. Don't know what happened. Probably didn't want to.

Amidst all the pain that this life brings, find some hope/joy/bliss in the everyday.

I will close with this...

I had a lovely day at home, folding laundry, ironing, visiting my beautiful neighbor and her sons, cleaning, primering the lower level door for bright teal paint, schooling, and closed the day with my Day 4 of Run Your Bum Off, stage 8. Walk for 3 minutes, run for 9, walk for 2, run for 9, walk for 2, run for 8...I listen to Jeremy Camp and Matthew West...Jeremy Camp has a song called "Not Ashamed". Matthew West has a song called "Strong Enough". Let me recommend that you give them a listen...I had some amazing worship time. All the while, praying that the Lord would give me strength to get through this and to be used. Trying to use my time wisely, which is hard for this dilly dallyer, procrastintor queen. I got my 3 miles in, burned 420...while running for 26 minutes. whew!

Now that I read through this last horrendously long paragraph, I realize that there was really no point except to say that running on the treadmill has become such a special time for me. I enjoy the running/walking because I get to spend 40 minutes just praising the Lord, thanking Him for all the adventures He takes me through.

Also, please please please pray for my sweet friend, Christine K. She is in the hospital, don't know the details except that it's not good....she is diabetic and has already endured some amputation and it looks like more. Please pray for her, her husband, Matt and her three sons.

Happy Thursday.

Love,
