The Thing in Front of You

I don't do this often.  But I can't get it off my mind or out of my heart.  I need to share the words that have gripped me.  Ripped me open to the very core.  Pinned me down and made me feel that I am drowning.  Drowning in the American Dream.  I used to think it was silly that I had to eat everything on my plate because kids somewhere far away were starving.  When I was a child.  But now that I am grown up, I know we are not so disconnected.  I am not helpless. 

I read a quote by Elizabeth Elliot that said, "When you don't know what to do next, do the thing in front of you."

And then if you can see him,  see them,  see the sheep calling hungry, go  HERE and do the thing in front of you...

And Then There Were Two

The hearing... the dedication... all this crowded out a very special birthday in my blogging, but not in real life!  Two years ago two precious little girls saved our lives!  Literally, they gave me a reason to keep breathing.   I completely threw myself into planning a Curious George party for my curious toddlers to combat the post Christmas blues.  It was mostly family and really not a big deal, but I am sure I had more fun then they did...  Here is an overdue peek!

Curious Little Monkeys!



If only we were a little taller...

Happy 2nd Birthday Abby!
Happy 2nd Birthday Alena!
