Spiderman Re-charge

Today on the way home from preschool Eli piped up from the back seat, “Mom, my webs are gone!”  Hmmmmmm I had no idea what that meant.  At a stop sign I turned around to check it out.  “What do ya mean buddy?”  Casting his fingers in the spiderman fashion he replied, “Look my webs are all gone.”  I smiled, commented I was sorry I couldn’t help out with that, and drove on home.

At nap time I learned something new. There is a way to get your “webs” back….

Wanting to make sure he was doing as he was told, I went in to check on the little guy.  Sure enough he was in bed, lying down, and being quiet. However, he had attached to his head a hard plastic spiderman mask.  There was absolutely NO WAY you could go to sleep with that thing on.  I started to take it off.  He objected, “Mom don’t take it off. That’s the only way to get my webs back!!”

Guess what?  he will wake up web less….. =)

That’s My King!

I’m thinking if you’re like me, the economic turmoil of our day may have you a bit shaken. I watched this video again tonight and wanted to share it with you….  It’s nothing new and cutting edge but it’s filled with inspiration and truth.  We serve a king that is in control of government officials that don’t know what’s going on as well as a King that has wealth unprecedented. Turn up the speakers and listen- If you are a believer this is the King in whom we have hope!

Catching Up

Being away from the blog a few days has been a new experience. I find myself anxious to sit down and catch up and yet not exactly sure how to start.  I’m afraid I cannot accomplish a review of the week without being “listy.”  So instead trying to be creative and putting off catching up I’m just going to have to be “listy”. Here’s an embarrassingly long day by day of our 7 day trip.  I PROMISE to never write a post this lengthy again…. Read the rest of this entry »

We’re back…

Yes that’s right, we did leave!  I didn’t admit it just in case some person somewhere was interested in taking our non-valuable but special-to-us stuff while away.

I’ve got ALOT of unpacking to do so I’m not going to be able to update all at once but I said I’d be back today so I’m keeping my word.  If you have a facebook account I’ve posted pics there….. Our trip definitely accomplished it’s purpose. We are very refreshed!

An inside scoop to where we went…. hmm should I say??  Yep, Branson and some really cool places in St Louis were on our agenda.  Here’s my favorite family pic from The City Museum in St Louis.  I’ll fill in all the details soon!

Away for a Bit…

I recently heard a great quote by General George S. Patton, “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.”  Isn’t that the truth?!?!  I mean when you’re tired doesn’t the littlest thing seem impossible to accomplish?  Well I’m not going to tell you what we’re up to just yet but I want to let you know that I will be away from blogging until  Friday the 26th. We are taking a break from everything routine for 8 days.  We may be here, we might be gone, but whatever we do just know we are catching up on our rest!!  I’ll fill you in on all of the details when I return to blogland.  You guys take care and have a blessed week!!!

Oh and here’s a smile maker for the day thanks to Robot Eli’s creative imagination…

I don’t say this lightly… Steven and I had the PRIVELEGE to be apart of a very special congregation yesterday.  Steven was asked to preach at a small country church where the pastor recently resigned. We had a blessed day with a sense of God’s presence all around!! To God be the glory….

A quote Steven shared from the pulpit yesterday I thought was worth passing on to you.  It is this:

“I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.”

John Newton  1725-1807

Steven reminded us that we ARE products of our past.  No matter how we might try to bury the things we have walked through(good or bad), those experiences are what has formed our thinking and who we’ve become.  However, because of the power of the grace of God we DO NOT remain prisoner to our past.  God is the great deliverer and giver of hope for a bright tomorrow.  It was such awesome reminder to me….

Little Boy, Baby Girl

I know this post comes from a mixture of fatigue and many hours reading countless childrens books to my kids. Let me warn you the meter and rhythm aren’t perfect.  It originated last night. Hopefully my kids will laugh at it someday. I want them to know that even during the adventures they send my way I still have ALWAYS loved them and God loves them more! Read the rest of this entry »
