BULLET THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

  • It’s a nice Monday morning here at our house with everyone home.  VBS tonight!
  • As of this morning, it’s been 29 consecutive days of running.  Almost half way through my modified plan!
  • I feel like I’m a bit behind on the details of life.  Need to spend some time going through mail, making appointments, etc.
  • There are two cucumbers in our fridge that we grew in our backyard.  Woohoo!
  • We meet the guardian ad litem today for our foster daughter.  In the event that the agency files for permanent custody, the guardian (a neutral voice to the court) has a pretty strong voice in how adoption decisions are made.
  • Jesus the name that charms our fears and bids our sorrows cease.
  • I know it’s only midsummer but I’m definitely thinking about the 2 year blog anniversary give-away (in November).  Last year it was an iPad.  What will it be this year?
  • Would you rather: 1) have 2 weeks expenses paid for rest and relaxation or 2) have 2 weeks expenses paid so you could visit a third world place, learn about its culture, and live among its people?
  • I’m struck by God’s phenomenal compassion.  He plays by rules we really can’t comprehend.
