Remembering – Eyes to See – Day 26

It’s amazing to me how moments that we actually lived can totally slip from our memories.  I think about that sometimes, I think about what I’m seeing with my eyes, hearing with my ears, touching with my fingers — how moments that are my actual present will someday be gone from my memory.  I don’t want […]

Isaac is 10 months old!

Dear Isaac – You have grown yourself right into the double digits!  You are army crawling yourself around the house like a champ.  You are very fast now, and will eat anything you find on the floor (anything so mama always has to watch you and also has to sweep regularly).  You love when the […]

Today’s Gifts – Eyes to See – Day 25

– sleeping in a bit – Ezra helping me put food in the shopping cart, and on the conveyor belt, then declaring “I weewee stwong!” – coming in out of the cold and feeling the warmth of the house – a pantry and fridge full of food – snuggling both my boys at the same […]

Naptime – Eyes to See – Day 24

I am so happy that God rested on the seventh day, aren’t you? I went to church this morning, then ate a delicious lunch, and then slipped into a post-church-and-lunch nap with Ezra by my side.  Most days, I would like a nap, but there is so much to do. On Sundays, I feel no […]

Grace for the Blogger – Eyes to See – Day 23

I haven’t written in a few days.  Five now, actually.  When I skipped the first of these five days, I thought I’ll just write two tomorrow.  But I didn’t and now it’s five days later and the 31 days are almost up.  I thought about writing a bunch of posts in one night to catch up… […]

A Week in Photos – Weeks 41 & 42 – Project 365

October 8, 2012 – I forgot to take a picture on this day.  We drove home from Hanna in the afternoon.  So here is a picture from our trip to the farm on Sunday. October 9, 2012 – we needed groceries!  Isaac was asleep and Ezra was excited about getting a free cookie. October 10, […]

Spiritually Fat – Eyes to See – Day 22

I’ve been on a bit of a bender for about a week now. Not alcohol or drugs. Chocolate. And I can’t seem to stop. Except, now I might have to because I just ate all the chocolate that we have in the house. Recently, I challenged myself to partake in whole30. The idea behind whole30 […]

Miraculous Life – Eyes to See – Day 21

Sometimes I feel really unaccomplished.  I never finished university, I don’t have some fancy degree or letters to add behind my name.  Some people I know have gone on to receive their masters or doctorate, or some are living glamorous lives abroad, traveling lots.  Some have worked very hard to create their own businesses or […]

Stitches – Eyes to See – Day 20

I heard the footsteps behind me, and then there was the sickening thud of a little boy’s head smacking into the hard tile floor. I ran over, put the baby I had been holding down on the floor and scooped Ezra into my arms, carrying him away from the life group bible study that was […]

His Love Endures Forever – Eyes to See – Day 19

I let her stay up late.  Ezra missed his nap today, so he was off to bed early.  Eva took care of Isaac while I lay down with Ezra, staying with him until he was asleep.  I let him lay on my chest, and I marveled at the small weight of his body against mine […]
