Littlest Angel Sale is Hell

I just got back from the Littlest Angels (an upscale used children's clothing store) sale that was by invite only. From the looks of it, they invited everyone from the tri-state area. I did get some really cute dresses for Laina and some summer outfits for Ethan, but I don't recommend the hour long wait for the check out at the single register.

Today's Verse

God is truthful.

John 3:33

This verse is short and sweet and is from Laina's Cubbies book.

Today's Verse

The full verse is Ephesians 5:14

"Awaken, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light."

Laina the Liberal

I don't know why, but Paul is convinced that Laina is going to be a liberal when she grows up. With the way she wanted me to do her hair this morning, she is either going to be a cheerleader or a "free spirit" Ha ha.

The Blahs

Well, I finally succomed to the kid's colds. I don't feel nearly as bad as they did, but I don't feel peachy either. After getting up at 4:00am with a very angry Ethan, I ended up sleeping on the recliner with him. Needless to say, it wasn't a great sleep and I ended up taking a nap in the morning. I wanted to go to the Beth Moore telecast at church, but I just didn't see it happening with Ethan being an extreme grump and me not feeling that great. If they have a cd of the telecast, I will buy it. I will be going to church tonight and singing in the choir, croaky voice and all.

Instead of complaining, I will have a positive attitude and thank God for giving me a healthy body that can at least withstand a cold.

Yesterday's Verse

For You have delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, And my feet from falling.

Psalm 116:8

Laurin picked this one out-probably because it was the first one she saw when she opened up the Psalms. At least she is looking in the bible at all.

Wonder Pets

This is footage from one of Laina's favorite shows. You can make up your own story to go along with the pictures. Yes, that is a calf in a tree.

Today's Verse

Sometimes we can get bogged down with all our responsibilities and the hassles of life. It sometimes makes it hard for us to praise the Lord, because we may not feel like there is anything to praise Him about. A couple of weeks ago Pastor John used the clique that we should always look at our cup as half full. Later, the Lord chastised him and told him that we should always see our cup as FULL. We have received the gift of salvation, and that is greater than anything else in the world. That alone is worthy of giving God praise every day from the rising of the sun until the sun goes down.

Bailing Out Tiger

After 3 days of kitty being missing, the Holy Spirit led me to the Larimer County Humane Society in Fort Collins. It seems little kitty had been nabbed by the dog catcher right on our street and taken all the way there. We thought that he was just in someone else's house, but I thought that I better check the pound just in case. I cried when we saw him sitting there in the cage, so I paid the hefty bill to get him out. Just one more day and he would have gone up for adoption or been euthanized. I know, I am a sucker for my pets, but he really does bring joy to our lives. Now if I can just keep him from running up to everyone he sees. We'll have to practice animal control drills so he'll run when they come around. ha ha.

I haven't posted for a few days, because I am a busy little bee. Pastor Tom gave us some devotionals we are supposed to be doing every day and I have been trying to do that, bible study homework, housework, and some ebay postings. I am still behind in most everything, but I have been busy. We also had to take a little time to enjoy the awesome weather we have had the last couple of days. I haven't seen the river, but I imagine that it is flowing quite nicely about now. Look out Kansas, we can't horde all this water so it'll be coming your way.

Today's Verse

If you do not love you do not know God, because God is love.

Today's Verse

The entire paragraph reads: "The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."

Zephaniah 3:17

(I didn't have enough room to put all of that on there. Laurin and Laina decorated the bottom)

Just for fun

Can you hear me now?Cold Hands!
Look out! It's a herd of turtles!

New Vision Charter School

I was a bit disappointed yesterday when I found out Laurin and Laina's places on the waiting list at the New Vision Charter School. The school draws names with a lottery system once a year and puts everyone on a list. Laurin is #17 on her list and poor Laina is #76. The exact number of kids who will be returning isn't known at this time, so Laurin might actually get in. That would put Laina on a different preference list for kids who have siblings in the school. It is out of my control, but I really wanted Laina to be able to attend that school. I'll just have to wait patiently and trust in the Lord.
