|listening to Keith Green Radio on Pandora today. Like his kind of music or not, this guy was ON FIRE for the Lord. |
I need that encouragement today. I need Him (Jesus Christ, not Keith) every hour.
|Reading the Word, sometimes it doesn't make sense or I wonder how it can apply to my life today...and then He delivers.|
Invest the time.
|Pray for this little chicky. She is not feeling well today. This is a pic from a few weeks ago but this is what she's doing right now. So much for getting caught up on math and phonics today, ya know?? (choose joy)|
Saturday! We went ICE SKATING (I didn't), for which I shall blog about later. I need to go get my pix off of FB, along with the Young Christmas pics that I said I'd get last week. From there, Charlie and Duncan came to spend the night and shoot each other's eyeballs out (with air soft guns no less, and yes, they were wearing protection and from what I also hear, boys like to get shot...what?) with Will and Ethan, and occasionally Levi. We have been trying to encourage Levi's sense of boyhood adventure by getting him a bb gun for Christmas. You'll shoot your eye out, kid.
and they did try to.
We took the boys to church with us yesterday and then they came back home with us for the afternoon. to shoot their eye balls out some more.
I worked on NYE hats for a party we are going to tomorrow night. how fun is THAT?? well, I'll try to blog about that later on too.
Since I will be home for the day, maybe later today even.
As I stated above, Jack would be 2.5 today. So weird to think of that. In some ways, it is pretty fresh. In other ways, it seems to have happened in another life or time. or to someone else. He will forever be a part of our family and I will always say his name. I've been dreaming of his birth a lot lately. I think I blogged that the other day...it's sad that my boy didn't make it. he was so perfect, whole, even healthy. Darn that knot.
I'm so thankful for that time, for the presence of the Lord that I believe came into our home. He's always been with us, never left us but until I actually "wanted", "invited", truly realized my need for HIM, I was grasping at straws....
So yeah, I'd never wish this scenario on anyone. Unless it meant LIFE to them. even then, I'd pray for some other way. Who knows where my family would've ended up. The presence of the Lord is a very real thing in our lives. Each one of our lives. The peace that only comes from HIM is present in our lives. Look up. don't look at the darkness around you, and lemme tell you....these are some seriously DARK days. (Save me from this present darkness)
Ye are the Light of the World. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
The first chapter of the book of John.
IS AWESOME. read it.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth.
For the tiny heart whose blood would save us
Whose fragile fingers would heal us
Blessed be Your name
