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 […]

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… […]

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 […]

Light through the Cracks – Eyes to See – Day 18

It was dark until the moment God said “let there be light”, and then there was light shining in the darkness.  He did the same thing with my heart when he opened my eyes and he burst into my life, and then suddenly, there was light shining in the darkness again, light shining from that […]

Gratitude – Eyes to See – Day 17

Little things I’m thankful for: – the gorgeous morning light pouring over the fields as we drove Eva to school – moms and tots, the moms that meet there regularly, and those who take care of our kids so we can have a break – a warm drink on a crisp day – my husband’s […]
