I am currently sitting in an extremely quiet house having a cup of coffee....niiiice.
Contemplating my day...my last with all 3 kids in the house.
I have forgotten how hard it is to keep my house clean with all 3 kids here!!! I am constantly picking up, wiping up, or something all day long. It's exhausting!!!! Yes, you would think with the 3 kids being grown, they could pick up after themselves.....their mother did not train them well. :) But seriously, there is just more mess, more dirt with more people.
I am studying through the life of John this summer in my quiet time. John reminds us over and over to love one another.....to follow God's command, to love your brother. Having my children home, reminds me of how difficult that is. If we could stay to ourselves, it would be easy. but more people brings more dirt and more mess......and more messy relationships that are hard to love.
I can't do it without Christ.
The pattern of things breaking at my house has continued.....argh!! But I am holding on to the reminder God gave me last week that they are just things and I am trying to not focus on the fact that my $$ is just pouring out of my bank account......trying being the optimum word. The good news I guess would be that nothing should break for a long time because everything is NEW now....right?!!!!
I am starting to get excited for our vacation in 17 days!!! We are heading to Jackson Hole, WY while Jared is in Brazil on a mission trip. We found a wonderful christian camp there that allows families to stay for a VERY reasonable price in the summer. To make it better, I was able to get FREE plane tickets for us with CC points. hey! just found another good thing about things breaking...as you buy new ones, you get points!!! I know, I'm digging. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!! If you have never been to the Tetons....you NEED to go. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen......don't worry, I will have plenty of pictures to show you!
I guess, that is it.
Enjoy your day!
