Rope Swing


A bit from Oswald Chambers today…

“Consider the lilies of the field”–they grow where they are put.  Many of us refuse to grow where we are put, consequently we take root nowhere.  Jesus says that if we obey the life God has given us, He will look after all the other things.  Has Jesus Christ told us a lie?  If we are not experiencing the “much more,” it is because we are not obeying the life God has given us, we are taken up with confusing considerations.  How much time have we taken up worrying God with questions when we should have been absolutely free to concentrate on His works?  Consecration means the continual separating of myself to one particular thing.  We cannot consecrate once and for all.  Am I continually separating myself to consider God every day of my life?


I thought that end snip-it of My Utmost for His Highest was very good. 🙂

Yesterday, before it started to rain, Cael and I spent some very fun time outside in the beautiful sunshine!


Cael does a very cool trick where he holds onto the rope swing and then runs and spins around.


He goes so fast!


Look at this adorable face…


Ha ha!

I curled my hair on Sunday.


It’s getting longer!  I’ve been wanting to do a post about the growing out process from having a pixie…



And LOOK who decided, not only to be the cutest 6-year-old boy ever, but to lose a TOOTH!?!


Bubba-loo lost his first tooth!  Oh my gosh!  And there’s Josh…trying to be cool. 😉

So far Monday was a good day.  This week is going to be very busy and I have some blog posts that I’m working on and hopefully will get them posted soon.  Stay tuned!  Have a wonderful week!

God bless,



Morning Musings


My journal entry this morning, 7:50am (revised a little bit).

  Our house is always quiet in the early mornings.  By early mornings I mean 8, 9, and even 10am, and by quiet I mean asleep!  We are not a morning family and there is nothing wrong with that.


  You may not think it, but I love waking up in the early mornings!  I love waking up to the sunrise!  My alarm went off at 7:30 (after is went off at 7am but I didn’t hear it), and I was up and ready to watch the sun rise up into the sky!  I opened my window, it was icy cold outside; there was frost on the roof, the car windows, and the arbor, and I looked out into the chilly morning just as the periwinkle sky started waking up.


  The trees were lined with a gold glimmer and as the clock ticked on the sun started to rise from the other end of the world.  The bright golden edges of it came first, and then finally, at 7:39am, the sun rose behind the trees and seemed to expand so far across the sky!  It was beautiful.


  So, at 7:39, the sun made it’s appearance after it’s grand entrance to the mornings sky and my room, being in the front of the house towards the sunrise, was soon consumed in the warmest, goldest, most, how can I explain…most honey gold light ever!  It was like my room was made out of gold!  I love that about my room; that it fills up with sunshine in the morning. 🙂


  A goal of mine is to wake up every chance I get to see the sunrise since we don’t have a good view of the sunset at all at our house.  It’s so beautiful and just assures you that there is a God, as funny as that may sound!  I’m sad to think of all the sunrises I’ve missed…..


I hope your day is filled with a warm, honey, glow and that you get a chance to watch the sunrise sometime if you haven’t in a while.  It’s getting so close to Christmas!  I can’t even believe it!  Really, I haven’t even given my mom a hint for what I might like (she usually gets something that I LOVE though so I completely trust her if I don’t decide on anything and am so thankful!).  Have a wonderful day!  God bless,
