Well, I've done it before and I need to do it again... take a break. Not that I've been blogging a lot anyways... but I need it not to be in the back of my mind taking away from the things I need to be thinking about... my kids, my husband, life here. So I'm going off line. Thanks for those who do read and leave comments. I appreciate your friendship. Best way to get a hold of me is through email or call- which is even better. I'm going to be trying to stay off line as much as I can... so email won't be a priority either. So anyways... I'm off to keep the peace, keep things odd objects out of my daughter's mouth, read books to my boy who is all about them, take care of myself, and in that way give my husband a less stressed and overwhelmed wife to live with. :)

Indoor fun... anticipating spring...
cardboard t-ball set... :)

{he really likes his Berenstein Bears t-ball book}


We hung the swing 3 weeks ago... it has been so good... put a whiny kid in a swing... and voila! instant change. :) or a great place to wakeup from nap time... or just something else to do.

and this next week with 50's and 60's predicted... they will stretch out and reach for the warm sun...

now hopefully the gopher didn't get them all...

A devotion that spoke to me today... what I feel... a scattered uncomplete puzzle most days... often forgetting the big picture... (often forgetting what I had just said two seconds before-mommy brain) and wondering how this will all come together in the end. :) I believe my life shattering moment began with marriage and kids... all good stuff... but I was definitely not prepared for how much it would change me and challenge me to trust God with the details and yield to his calling in the big and small things daily.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Not Yet Complete
Read Philippians 1:1-11 & Psalm 66
He who began a good work in you WILL bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
The puzzle looked a mess. Even after hours of sorting the pieces and assembling the border of the huge puzzle, there still seemed little rhyme or reason to the chaos. My work looked nothing like the beautiful image on the box; I feared I was just wasting my time.
In our efforts with ourselves and others, we can easily come to the same conclusion. Our lives fill up so swiftly with chaos, confusion, and disorder that we often fail to see any purspose or beauty in it at all. Not seeing the whole picture, we easily become discouraged and lose heart. Or worse, we cram the pieces together according to our own design and plan.
Yet notice how graciously Jesus dealt with Saul. From that shattering moment on Damascus road, Jesus quietly reassembled the pieces of Saul's life in a new way. As Paul yielded in faith to His risen Lord, a picture of grace and power--one he could never have imagined before-- began taking shape. So Paul could write by experience, years later, as almost all the pieces of his life were in glorious place, He "will bring it to completion."
Dear Jesus, I can't see the whole picture. Complete the great work You have begun in me. Amen.
from Portals of Prayer
