My life feels a little random these days so here are some random thoughts to go along with it...
I know I've mentioned this before, but there are times when if someone just happened to walk into our house at just the right moment, they may overhear some of the craziest things come out of our mouths--even if taken in context they sound funny! Here are a couple favorites of late:
"Tate, please take the drill out of your ear."
"Zoe, hands out of Mommy's shirt...NOW!"
"No, Max, I have no idea how much precipitation is anticipated. NO, I will not call Channel 13 and ask."
"Everyone needs to sit down, don't talk and eat your dinner. Now...tell me about your day." (My poor children are probably so stinkin' confused!)
Let me also say how very grateful I am that I learned that--at least for now--"naughty words" consist of the following:
the "s" word=stupid (gasp! we don't say that at our house!)
the "b" word= butt (we use "bottom" or "tush") :)
or the worst of all...
the "f" word= fat (just an unkind word, in my opinion!)
Don't know how much longer these will be the worst things that these innocent little ears hear, but I am glad for it while it lasts!
I also do have some things heavy on my heart, and just see a lot of hurt, discontent, and downright tragedy going on...in the world and right in our own backyards. My heart hurts for this, and I know that what hurts us, hurts the heart of God as well. The Creator of the universe hurts for us.
"I look up to the mountains--does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade." Psalm 121: 2-5
