Thaddeus the lawyer
When discovered sitting on the couch reading, he was asked why he wasn’t sorting the books into piles to put away. His answer:
“I am! I am sorting by looking at the number of pages!”
Always the lawyer – always ready with a GREAT reason and excuse!!!
Keenan the Creative
When talking about moving to the lower 48 (where there is mud to make mud pies like I did when I was little 🙂 – don’t you love breakfast table conversation?)
“Oh Dad. You are just like a bird flying different places to work”
SO… if I am Jacob, my ministry is more of a Leah than a Rachel… but which one births more babies? Does God want me to accept my ministry? Or LOVE my ministry?
Yeah, we all know the answers to that one. Leah… not what I expected. Things I didn’t “sign up” for. But what was given to me anyway. And I WILL LOVE it… cherish those that God has placed under me to love and guide and teach and lead.
Its going to be a good weekend. NO, it’ll be a great weekend.
so. life is crazy. Made more intense with an emotional “blech” going on in our worship team. Its really too bad you have to deal with stuff like this. I mean really. Shouldn’t every one love me and think I’m the best ever and always give me the benefit of the doubt and understand and agree with my heart?
yeah. don’t comment on that! 🙂
I am going to a worship conference tonight – this weekend. REALLY looking forward to soaking in God’s presence, worshiping without responsibility or tensions, enjoying the teaching and challenges that come with these sorts of events.
Baby is cute… sorry no pics. I will get some up again soon. On a cute funny note, here is a poem written at 6:30 in the morning by my son:
When baby’s eyes are open it means she is awake;
When baby’s mouth is open it means she wants to eat;
when baby’s hands are up it means she wants to play;
When baby’s legs are up, that means she’s grown away.
p.s. that means she’s grown up mom.
Check – language arts done.
MMM… I am tired. So tired. thought I’d write a quick blurb as I finish my glass of red (thank you honey!) and unwind.
I hate finding links, but I had a great visit this weekend with Leah, Lyn, Lydia, and Molly, all previously from Choosing Home… Molly from Adventures in Mercy… and I can’t remember your previous blog’s names… sorry Lydia 🙂 What a fun and fabulous time we had. lovely. THANKS girls!
Then we went to my husband’s aunt’s funeral / memorial service. It was lovely, I thought, very celebratory… the kids did AMAZING, we enjoyed a great evening with the family, drove back in time to get overwhelmed at the house, scurry about and leave for church and…
Shand’s dedication service. It was also lovely. (Kind of handy to have a baby on hand to dedicate when you are preaching on Hannah taking Samuel to the temple. ) Yup. That’s us. Multi-sensory and relevant!
And bed will also be lovely. Good night!
yes… and on we go… cuz you just can’t get enough praising done in a life time, so why stop just because 40 days is past? 🙂
Psalm 139 is my favorite. it speaks into every milestone of my life, every altar, every death and every life.
this pretty much sums up our worship service and the battle going on. “May my prayer be counted as incense before Thee; the lifting up of my hands as the evening offering. Set a guard over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. Do not incline my heart to any evil thing to practice deeds of wickedness… and do not let me eat of their delicacies.” “For my eyes are toward Thee, O God, the Lord;”
The Spirit revealed to me Satan has a stronghold in our church…
Its a mountain. But God moves mountains. And that is what I am counting on. That and a whole lot of humility on my part.
“When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Thou didst know my path.”
“Teach me the way in which I should walk;”
My 4 yr old lawyer-to-be just informed me, at 9:45 pm, that:
“You’re a great cover-upper”…
This is how he argues…
How can I say no to that?
That is why I must, once again, go tuck him in, although it is so far past his bedtime its almost mine.
