I know it has been a while...

Where have I been? I was feeling yucky for a few weeks. I had a nasty cold and was talking like Barry White for a while! I am feeling better now and so grateful that none of the children seem to have gotten whatever it was that I had!

Today was a busy day for us. We had 2 birthday parties to go to. The boys had fun and got worn out! Jonah is already asleep...hopefully for the night.

Andrew is going okay in school. Not as well as I hoped but considering how long he has been out...he is doing well!

And I have to talk about these! I won a sample pack of Pirates Booty snack foods from 24/7 Moms. My boys love them. They are all natural and I feel safe giving them to them, even to Abbi! We haven't found a flavor we don't like!

Where is God?

My kids were watching Charlotte's Web the other day. I sat there watching with them and the thought came to my mind...why is everyone so impressed with Wilber (the pig)? I mean, sure he is cute, but isn't the really amazing thing the spider?

This thought stuck with me for a while and the more I thought about it the more it made sence to me! Charlotte, the spider, is kind of like Jesus. She is working behind the scenes making Wilber out to be the mircilous pig everyone thinks that he is. She never asks for thanks and keeps on doing her "work" to conform Wilber into this great pig. In the end Wilber is spared from becoming the Christmas ham and she dies.

It makes me think of an old song, What a friend we have in Jesus. Here are the lyrics:

  1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
    Oh, what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
  2. Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged—
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful,
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
  3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
    Cumbered with a load of care?
    Precious Savior, still our refuge—
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
    Thou wilt find a solace there.
  4. Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
    Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
    May we ever, Lord, be bringing
    All to Thee in earnest prayer.
    Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
    There will be no need for prayer—
    Rapture, praise, and endless worship
    Will be our sweet portion there.

What do you think? Am I way off base here or what? I want Jesus to make me a better person. Maybe he is, quietly working behind the scenes. Never asking for thanks, but I owe him all I have and ever will have. Kind of like Wilber, taking Charlotte's egg sack and taking care of it for her until her children go to spread out. Maybe I need to stop and take the time to spread the joy of Jesus and what He has done for me. He is the friend of all friends!

Thank you Lord Jesus for ALL that I have. It may not seem like much to anyone else, but to me it is immeasureable what you have done for me!


Sunday Session

How long, O Lord, must i call for help,

but you do not listne?

Or cry out to you, “Violence!:

but you do not save?

Why do you make me look at injustice?

Why do you tolerate wrong?

Destruction and violence are before me;

there is strife, and conflect abounds.

Threfore the law is paralyzed,

and justice never prevails.

The wicked hem in the righteous,

so that justice is perverted..

(The Lord’s Answer)

Look at the nations and watch-

and be utterly amazed.

For I am going to do something in your days

that you would not believe,

even if you were told.

Habakkuk 1:2-5


A Sunday Session

I am starting something new: A Sunday session with a Bible verse. This is just for me but I hope it will bless you too!

The fear the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and discipline.

Listen, my son, to your father's instruction
and do not forsake your mother's teaching.
They will be a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.

Proverbs 1:7-9
