I am grateful for child training. Laundry at my house–I start it usually with a four or two year old helper. Depending on what’s in the load, I hang up the things that can’t or don’t go in the dryer. In the summer, we hang everything on the clothesline, but in the winter I use Carry on!
Sunny morning spent with friends. Prayers, tears, lots of laughter (even some snorting), chatting, affirming. Wonderful food. Filling my tummy, my head and my heart (not necessarily in that order). I was so fulfilled this morning. Kevin and one of the other dads took our kids on a playdate manly outing, while the mamas enjoyed Carry on!
This was the subject line in an email I received from a trusted faithful woman. It’s supposed to be motivational as she’s doing a series on moving from lazy to self-disciplined which is a good thing. In truth, her email was rather encouraging, and as well as honest. But it was the subject line that Carry on!
I just finished an amazing book called Finding Organic Church. I’d never heard the term before, but I was looking into “house church” and came across it in my library’s system. It. Is. an. Amazing. Concept. Most likely that’s because it’s from God. 🙂 It’s church like in Acts. It’s church with God as the Carry on!
what will happen to you, but you can choose your response to it. Today’s sermon and then our new home group discussing it was so so very good. We talked about life In Between. The Israelites left Egypt, a green lush area and were being led by God to Canaan, another area blooming with life. Carry on!
One of my facebook friends shared this article. It’s a truly sad commentary of how we are shunting aside God’s blessing. Go read it, and then come right back. I’ll wait. All Joy and No Fun: Why Parents Hate Parenting I think a lot of why people feel so negatively about parenting is because of Carry on!
In “Christian-ese” there is a term called “sold out”. It means you are completely totally 100% passionate about Jesus and His teachings. You want to show other people how to find Him. You live, breathe, love Him. You pray and listen to the Holy Spirit about every decision. You’re so filled with God and what Carry on!
even in Australia. I love that book. More than that, I have been trying to count my blessings.Count my blessings, name them one by one.Count my many blessings, see what God has done. Yes, perhaps I have had more than my fair share of diarrhea today with 2/3 of my children suffering some stomach ailment, Carry on!
Kevin and I are marriage mentors through our church and tonight, while discussing faith and values and premarital issues, I really felt like the Holy Spirit was saying the fiancé just needed to be asked if he was ready to commit his life to Christ. So I did. He was. Angels rejoice! And so do Carry on!
Today, I slept in (once I pawned the baby off to Dada at sunrise). I had cake for breakfast. And a coffee. I was awestruck by God’s handiwork above and below the ground. His attention to detail is breathtaking. Special thanks to Jon Flavel for these photos, since I forgot my camera. I laughed a Carry on!
