Praying you are safe and if you have family down there that your family is safe. And thank you to all those who are able to go down and are there helping in any way they can. Praying for your safety as well.

Heat Wave… hopefully waving bye bye

It is so hot again… so hot I want to crawl into an ice bath. On top of the heat our AC went out yesterday and it’s not fixed yet. To keep cool we have al the fans going, extra floor fans on, were going for rides with the boys in the car with the AC going, and opening widows around the house where the sun isn’t shining in to increase air flow.

This evening it is finally cooling and Grayson has been finding a way to stay cool…

He has loved hanging out in the windows. We have found him in different windows depending on the sun. I think its not only the air flow, but he has loved hearing and seeing different animals and bugs go by.

They say the coming week we are supposed to be in the 80’s again so hopefully that will help. When you don’t have AC or a commodity like it… makes you very grateful for it. Praying its fixed soon. Hope the weather is nice in your neck of the woods 🙂

Praying

Every time I hear of another terror attack, school shooting, shooting at a theater, music hall, or other place my heart gets sad. I just can’t stand the evil that’s out there.

Right now I chose to join with those that are praying for Paris and I continue to pray for every person affected by any of these kind of events.

You’re Gonna Miss This

I was thinking after a yummy supper Sunday with friends that with all we have been walking though with the Lord that I am in need of a slow down. The song by Trace Adkins came to mind… You’re Gonna Miss This.

If you are not familiar with the song it starts out talking about a young girl that wants to grow up too fast. First she is anxious to get out on her own and have her own place. It then shows her as a young adult in her own place and all she wants is to be married and own a home. The next part of the song is about her getting married and then all she wants is kids. It finally ends with her having kids and wishing they would be older and easier to care for. In each stage of her life she has someone tell her to slow down, appreciate what she has in the moment, as when it is gone she is going to miss that stage of her life. Now I may not have the song exact, but it is my best description of what I see in the song.

It got me to thinking about how in each part of my life I have been really good at accepting and enjoying each phase as it came. When I wasn’t I would pray about it then somehow be able to go back to being happy right where I was. That was untill I was more than two years into infertility treatment. So I looked to this song to provide some perspective and ability to continue to hope and have faith for the future.

I need to work on being content, as I have said before I have a loving husband, two fun-loving pups, a home, chickens (and their yummy eggs), family, and a job.bax snow Goodness from God 🙂

Sadness in the week of kindness…

So this week was supposed to be about kindness and what we can do to show kindness…. But tonight I am full of sadness after the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT shooting. My mind is spinning once again and I am moved to tears after hearing all of those little kids and teachers who lost their lives at the hands of a young 20 year-old person who for an unknown reason took other’s lives in his own hands and felt he had the right to do what he did. I feel sad for the families who lost their child or children. After going through all we have and not being blessed with a child yet, I can not imagine loosing my child… thinking of it makes me cry more. If you know anyone affected by this you are in my prayers and so are the families of those 600-some kids and the staff of that school.

Still as I watch the news and all the special reports on this tragedy… I see kindness in the way people support each other, the way the first responders act/speak/lead… God bless.
