Stuff on Sunday

Yesterday we brought the children over to my mom's so they could visit with my sister. The children were very excited to see her and she didn't know we were coming. I wish I had my camera to take a picture of the emotion on her face when she saw that I didn't come alone. It was very casual and the children are still talking about it. I'm really trusting God to bring healing to our family. I can't imagine how it's going to happen but I know only He can bring beauty from these ashes. I am choosing to trust Him.

In other news... here is Jordan from yesterday, having her cereal for the first time.

I decided last night that no matter what I was going to make it to church today and I did. I had to laugh when I looked out the window and saw how hard it was raining. If there was any Sunday that I'd want to just roll over and hide underneath the blankets, today was that day. Still, I was determined to go.

My thoughts have been very cluttered and anxious of late and I don't think I absorbed much of the sermon, but just being there felt good. I am feeling more and more disconnected from my Christian sisters and am slowing working on that. I usually get this way during the summer months as house groups etc come to an end until the fall season starts up again. I've been thinking about hosting a house group in our home this fall, but I'm not sure how that will work with all of Ian's ministry commitments. We'll see.

I did it again. I dressed the girls (somewhat) the same for church.

I put Jordan in the nursery today and I actually cried when I left her there. She did really well though and was well loved by the ladies that serve there. It was kind of nice to have some time to myself in the service. Is that awful to say? As soon as I signed her out she fell asleep in my arms. She is such a perfect armful.

She and I curled up on my bed and had a lovely nap together this afternoon. When I opened my eyes I found her just staring at me and then she gave me one of her big smiles. I love that. And I really love naps too.

Sam is really into video games and loves to try all the gadgets that Ian brings home. Here he is playing Burnout Paradise.

The children pointed out a snail on our front walkway when we were coming in from church. Would you believe I have never seen a snail? I mean, I've seen the shell, but not the actual "snail" part. How is it that I have lived 37 years (ouch) and have never seen a snail??

I was pretty fascinated so take a wild guess what I did.

Yep... I took a picture.

Absolutely fascinating.

That's it for today.

    The girls look adorable!

    I'm sorry you're feeling disconnected. Remember that we all love you and you will find that connection again soon. Big huge hugs!!!
