This afternoon I decided to read my daily bible reading to my 6 year old son Superman. He enjoyed it and said I was a good reader :0). It was such a lovely moment it time. I know that I can not do this with each reading especially Fridays, prophecy, but I am going to try to include him on the Psalms, Poetry and some of the Gospels.

Today when I asked him if he any questions about what I had just read he said no but then I asked if he had any about God in general and he immediately asked “Why can’t we see God?” I explained and asked him if he had anymore and he replied let me think about it. He came back with “Why did Jesus have to die?” I again explained. He of course has heard these explanations before but it was interesting to me the spiritual questions that my son has lingering around in his little mind. I love discussing the things of God with my son and look forward to many more.

Psa 63:1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

When we are…in a dry and weary land where there is no water…do we like David…earnestly seek God, do our…souls thrist for Him, do our…bodies long for Him…or do we turn our backs on God, physically, emotionally and spirtually.

This was actually a post that I wrote yesterday but still wanted to share. Today my bible reading was in Proverbs, chapter one to be exact. Expresso read it at the table this morning over breakfast. I watched as Superman thought about the words that came off the pages of the bible through his daddies. I am not sure how much, if any, was retained but I pray that some of it seeped in his heart and turned some wheels.  

Colic… the 5 lettered word that has invaded my home from the times of 6:30-11:00 at night for the past 2 months is finally saying good bye! What a huge and immensly difficult experience it has been. To have no control over something is very difficult to deal with especially when it envolves your newborn girl at the most difficult times of the day. Every evening was giant mess. I went to bed every evening completely exhausted with many regrets hanging over me of how I treated everyone and how I left the the kitchen from dinner. We have been able to kind of relax together as a family and just enjoy eachother and our little Butterfly, which is Beautifuls new blog name. Dinner has been a pleasant time, we have been able to visit with friends and everyone is able to say good night to eachother peacefully rather than over a screaming baby and in a massive hurry. Praise God! A funny, I just ordered this stuff that is called Colic Calm and is suppose to be a homeopathic remedy to the colic. We just got it the other night and now I don’t think we will be needing it, 25 dollars just blew right out the window. Yes, 25… we were desperate.

Tomorrow we are going swimming and preparing for our garage sale! I pray that I can get up at a decent hour in the morning and begin my day alone with a little time to just dwell in His presence.

 In the past whenever we would have friends over to play it was an embraced given that the play room would be destroyed. I accepted it and learned to not let it bother me, like it use to. I want the parents of the children visiting to feel completely comfortable and not have to worry about the mess their kids are making along side of my own and just relax and fellowship.  The only part that I have not been able to get past is the books, games and small building toys. Whenever I would walk into the room and see the books on the floor being trampled on, small pieces from a board game strung about and legos everywhere I would cringe. I tried desperately to instruct the children before they began to play to not play with those certain things… yeah, ha. I had no real solution to this little problem until I was reading Wondertime and found an article about a mother who made a little sanctuary for her daughter to read. A light bulb  instantly went off in my head and I began wondering if I could pull this off. I decided to try it out. It was a lot of work but in the end totally worth it. I pulled all of the toys that were stored in the closet that I didn’t mind the children making a mess with and then placing the book shelf and books along with the other toys that I did mind the children  playing and making a mess with. I no longer minded the mess of toys that were going to be strung about the room and it made the clean up much easier. Here is a small pic of our reading closet or our “little library” as Superman calls it.

This has really Worked for Me and for my children. Want to see other Work for Me Wednesdays just click HERE.

There are to many things to tackle around here. I had a really hard time deciding this morning which one I would commit to. After a lot of thought I am going to commit to these 3:

  • Organize my computer desk (it is a mess!)
  • Organize the new bill section
  • Spray paint a few things
  • Oh and start my project of making some wipes from scraps around here

So really 4 things :0) I will update this post tonight with some pictures… if life allows.

Update: Ok, so today I over shot a little with my Tackles. I really thought I could get them all done but everyday around here is so different. Our little precious T-Rex had a few issues today that could not be over looked and took a lot of time. I did however get 2 of the tackles on my list done. I organized my bill section and spray painted a few things :0) woo hoo! Pictures tomorrow! I also bought all of the things I needed for the wipes but just didn’t have time to do them.

Memorial Monday

What is today? I use to see it as just another day off work, out of school, a day where the world stopped together just to take a break, nothing more. I had no respect for the meaning of this day. In my family we never celebrated it as a day of observance of the ones who have and are still fighting for our freedom.  Today I am remembering my grandfather who fought in  WWII, Veitnam, and Korean, my husbands grandfathers who fought in WWII and many of our friends and families who have and are fighting in wars. For the wives who have husbands who are sacraficing a lot for their country and for all of the fallen heros who have sacraficed their lives for thier country, for me and for my family. Today I remember them.  

Remember that at 3pm today to stop for a moment of silence to remember them.

It has been a long rainy day. I am just sleepily laying here in my oh so comfy bed half way watching the news. Beautiful is sleeping in her butterfly bed, Superman is watching Superman with his friend on the living room floor and Expresso and T-Rex are asleep on the bottom bunk. It is a peaceful night, dispite the giggles and fighting noises coming from the living room :0). I love Sundays… they are always such pleasant days no matter what is going on. They can be very tiring for all of us but I just enjoy them.  

 Well, I have roughly 3 1/2 hours to sleep until I am so quietly awakened by the sweet sound of Beautiful’s wimpers. She never wakes me with loud unpleasant crying. She is getting so big by the way, I can not believe it.

Stop typing… must… go… to… bed…
