I'm devastated for the people of Joplin, MO. 
So many wonderful people have been affected by the monster that tore through and 
every part of 
life seems so trivial.
I wonder to myself.
It's just too close to home. 
I KNOW people that have lost everything and I don't like it. 
So I pray. And pray some more. 
Because God has it all under His control. 
Even when everything 
like a mess. 
Even when everything 
a mess.
We must trust when we are weak. But it is still hard. Really hard.  

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 
2 Corinthians 12:9

Dear Rain,

Go away or I'll sick this kid on ya. 
He's as mean as he looks. 
We ended up with a beautiful day thankfully. A nice reprieve from all the rain!
However, now tornados and thunderstorms are quickly approaching.

Growing Up

I can only hope that receiving a $10 bill will make him just as happy twelve years from now. HA!

It's A Weekend Thing

Happy Mothers Day weekend to YOU.
Because we deserve more than just one day. 
I've been using the "But, it's Mother's Day" card since Thursday.
Perhaps I can get away with it until next Thursday?

Weekend Camping Getaway

Last weekend we were able to relax in nature for a few days. 
Although the threat of rain was evident, mother nature took a 
rest and provided us with some lovely weather. 
With the exception of midway through our second night 
{where we nearly froze to death,} it was perfect.
The kids were crazy and into everything. 
But it was ok.
It was ok to be dirty. 
And messy. 
And they were. 
And it was all ok.
It's nice to have a break from running around cleaning
and shushing 
and picking up a trail of items strewn about. 
And even so, by day three I was ready for the comforts of home. 
Dirty dishes and piles of laundry. 
For a nice hot shower and some sleep. 
Crazy how that works isn't it?
