WHAT? its already Thursday?

well friends i just realized it is already Thursday...and that, my friends, is craziness. I had great plans for my blog this week like, Titus Tuesday and Worldview Wednesday but i guess life had a different agenda. So here i am and its Thurday and i have so much to say that nothing is coming! So i guess for now i will tell a story about Titus that I had planned to write on Tuesday, save the Worldevents for next Wednesday and maybe ramble on a bit about Today!

on tuesday Titus and I were playing around and he was singing, although i couldnt quite figure out what it was that he was sing. when suddenly with a look of great concern on his face he turned and asked me..."mommy do you like it that Jesus says I'm in the way?" and i was taken aback and a bit confused so i replyed, "what baby?" and he repeated himself, "Mommy do you like it that Jesus said I'm in the way?" this time he was even more concerned. I responded, "why do you think that Jesus thinks you are in the way? He doesnt think you are in the way He has a great plan for your life!" To which he reponded with one of his memory verse songs, (to the tune of London bridges) "Jesus said Im in the way, in the way, in the way, Jesus said Im in the way..." and i quickly cut him off, trying hard not to laugh at his sweet mistake and told him that Jesus is saying HE IS the way, along with a brief explaintion.

I thought alot about this and wondered how often i felt that Jesus thinks i am just in the way, and how often i believe He really has a great plan for my life. In the day to day battles of motherhood it is easy to feel like what you are doing is just half rate, but that is so far from Truth. Today as you do what you do in a day, may you be encouraged that what you are doing is worth it, if done to the Glory of Christ. May your reflect him as you mother, as you serve your husband, as you do your school work or your job. May the Lord deal bountifully with you today sweet readers.

I love it! Today was so much better! Hearing the story about Titus makes me so excited about the great opportunity we have to be with our kids. To help train them, hear their concerns, and help comfort them when they're confused or mixed up. And it makes me so grateful to the LORD that YOU are his mommy! Can't wait to hang out!

I SO needed that today! It is an easy thing to forget that God has a perfect plan for your life, that you can be part of HIS story! So exciting.

Honor has a new song - it is "Archimedes Quackenbush, Archimedes Quackenbush"... the name of her new crush in 3 year old choir at church. It is hilarious.

Amber- We need to get together when you are in KCMO. I want to meet Vernon and Titus! I don't leave for Mozambique until June 1st, so we should be able to make it work.
mi numbre es 816.304.4395. Give me a call as it gets closer so we can meet up and talk about all things Africa and other such nonsense. Link to my blog when you get a chance.

By the way, I just got the newest Hillsong United (All of the Above), and its rather pleasing to the ears. Take care. look forward to getting together when you are in town.
