Captured in Time

I'm reading... Same Kind of Different Like Me

Projects....life has been too busy lately. My project this week is to slow down, enjoy my days and get caught up on laundry.

In school...we are just enjoying normal reading, writing and arithmetic. We're reading Little House in the Big Woods too.

Recent dates...date what? Oh, we need one. Ralph and I have been exercising together all week- does that count? I guess not probably, we aren't talking when we're huffing and puffing away.

I'm thinking...about a baby boy I'll meet soon, a few weekends of fun I'm looking forward to, looking forward to April...spring break for us. (We're three months on and one off this year)

The boys....are incredibly sweet. They're growing up before my very eyes.

Running....is not. P90X right now, instead.

God is...so interested in relationship with us. Our lives are just a big love story with Him, He is in hot pursuit of your heart. And mine. I need more time with Him. Oh, and He's good. I'm trusting in Him when all else gives way...

  1. My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
    • Refrain:
      On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
      All other ground is sinking sand,
      All other ground is sinking sand.
  2. When darkness veils His lovely face,
    I rest on His unchanging grace;
    In every high and stormy gale,
    My anchor holds within the veil.
  3. His oath, His covenant, His blood
    Support me in the whelming flood;
    When all around my soul gives way,
    He then is all my hope and stay.
  4. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
    Oh, may I then in Him be found;
    Dressed in His righteousness alone,
    Faultless to stand before the throne.

Changes...we bought a new trailer. I may not have mentioned that we sold the beast at the end of season last year. It was too big and glitzy for me and we wanted real beds for the boys, not pull out couch. I love our new cozy (smaller) camper complete with triple bunk. I can't wait to go....

Looking forward to...a few fun weekends this month, quality time with my husband, my sister, a friend.

Favorite moments....reading to the boys. A good, hot cup of tea. A good book. The way I feel after I've worked out. Chocolate moments.

Planning...rest. Playful nothing time.

Missing my regular postings, but there's nothing wrong with some quiet, eh?

Amanda,
I just stumbled on to your blog and love it! Great pictures and reading advice. I also have boys (mostly) and have read much of the same. I'll visit again.
Bless you!
