A 1000 Words...

Giggling at Daddy

Bonnet Beauty

I couldn't resist posting this one.

"I'll get you for that last photo, mom. Watch your back!"

Psalm 62

 1 Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.
2 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
 he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

-For busy days and tired nights, may we find rest in Him and time to stop and "smell the roses." Or this case, capture a memory with a photograph.

Cat's out

I am into hour number four of not being able to fall back asleep. I am not sure whether I should blame falling into a coma for three hours at 8:30 pm tonight or a few other things on my mind, which shall remained unnamed. Thank goodness it is not a school night.

Ah yes, tomorrow is Saturday. Pure bliss after working all week and leaving my daughter in "daddy day care." You caught that, eh? Nothing gets by you. I was waiting until I was officially back and had shared the news with my colleagues and class before letting "the cat" out on my blog. Although, Chris and I are both equally excited about our new arrangement, we are more excited about the new baby we are expecting to be born, sometime on the cusp of February and March. The news was both a surprise and a joy! What a blessing from God! We are thankful His plans are always better than our own.

Some things I am enjoying about being back to work:
-my morning shower, 10 minutes of uninterrupted cleanliness
-having both my husband and my daughter to come home to each day
-seeing the potential Rylyn has in my students' achievements
-watching Chris grow as father

Some things I am not enjoying about being back to work:
-knowing my responsibility is to have that shower and get out the door and not attend to the crying baby
-missing cuddles and laughs that Chris is getting instead of me (thou shall not covet!)
-being exhausted and then not being able to sleep at 2:30 am

Bible Reflections:

Acts 13:22

New International Version (NIV)
22 After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’

-David faced much opposition in becoming king. He sought God. As our family faces opposition to choices we make as we move forward in our own destiny, we must seek God's heart and trust His plan. By seeking God, we are better witnesses of His Love.
