We come home from all the festivities and go right to her physical therapy, so I'm trying to figure out what combination to dump in the crock pot before I leave so that we can actually eat dinner tonight! Starting on Wednesday at noon, I will have the kids home from school for the summer and we will be learning a new tempo of life.
I've posted this before, but I just love it. I think it would be cool to have a piece of jewelry made from a similar combination of the word grace paired with an infinity symbol:
Just a couple more weeks until my parents are back in town! I really miss them but am coping surprisingly well, especially with all the added transportation issues with our daughter's medical needs. Her goal is to be walking again before the month is over. Thank you for the team of drivers who have stepped in to pull us through this season.
Here is the best article I have read in a while, speaking to why Christianity isn't a good luck charm to keep the bad in this world away. I just love it, saying in part, "Yet so often, we’re surprised by injury and inconvenience, by suffering and circumstances. We’ve reduced our gospel down to a formulaic set of rules whereby the faithful sidestep the pitfalls of this broken world and instead float unscathed and isolated through their good life. We want it all and forget there is always a cost. We want safe instead of good." http://www.incourage.me/2014/06/consider-it-joy.html
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:30-31
