Here is a little video of Benen drinking bath water. He started doing this the other night and was totally amused with himself. He loves water and taking a bath.

Thankful Thursday

Here is my thankful list this week:
1. For a husband who is willing to work through things honestly.
2. For two beautiful children; that God gave us - the timing was unplanned by us but so much better then we could have planned.
3. For the Phispering Winers (my co-fire fighters)
4. For Thin Mint cookies - yummy.
5. For chocolate.
6. For childhood memories.
7. For a sister and brother and that are growing in Christ - they are a true encouragement to me and I love being around them.
8. For family (both physical and "adopted") that supports me even when they may not agree with me.
9. For the fun random things that kids do.
10. For this calling that God gave me; and the journey I am on to discover it.

Converstions


"The Bible says that if you talk to somebody with your mouth, and your heart does not love them, that you are like a person standing there smashing two cymbals together. You are only annoying everybody around you. I think that is very beautiful and true... I pray that God will help me feel His love for them. I ask God to make it so both conversations, the one form the mouth and the one form the heart, are true."
- Blue Like Jazz, Donald Miller

Thankful Thursday

This is actually hard to write today. I have had a stressful week; not with anything in particular just been really busy and my kids are testing their limits. The thing I am thankful the most is peace and God's still quiet voice; especially in the middle of the storm that life is right now.
