It Is Good For the Soul

A little music, a little jumping, and lots of smiles and laughter!  It is good for a Mommy's soul.

Enjoying living the little experiences through the eyes of this sweet boy.
I pray that I remember tomorrow that the mundane things of life...dishes, laundry, vacuuming, and picking up the toys, along with the selfish things of life....down time, paging through blogs, facebook, and my iphone are far less important than this intentional time with my kids!

This sweet girl twirls her way through life.  Life experiences are recapped in song and she has never heard a song that does not require dancing.  She is a spitfire!  She dances to her own drum, definitely has her own opinions, and at times I find myself constantly correcting her.  My prayer has been that God will allow me to see her through his eyes.  That I will know how to encourage her and mold these qualities so that she can shine for God.

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is good, acceptable and perfect."
Romans 12:2

Spring........Hasn't Anyone Ever Told You Teasing Isn't Nice

The weather has been absolutely beautiful the past 2 days here in North Georgia.  Yesterday it was near 80!  The kids have brought out their shorts, had picnic lunches in the yard, went for long walks, and repeatedly asked when we can get out the sprinkler.  But, alas it was once again a tease.  A cold front is headed our way this afternoon bringing with it wind, cold weather, and rain!  So we are left to page through pictures and look forward to warmer weather to come.

"For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.  He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.  On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.  Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out you heart before him; God is a refuge for us."
Psalm 62:5-8
