PHOTO: Sunset

Photo from our Bahama Cruise in Jan of 2006. It was lovely, we were just sad since my husband's dad had died and we'd miscarried our baby back in November of 2005. But it was still nice to have a change of scene.

Photos of Children

Photos of my children

My husband was getting ready for work at 330am and then my baby woke up. It will be a long day. Since I am up anyways, here are some photos.

My 4 year old, just hanging around:)



My son with his cake. His birthday was April but the party was May.



My 18 month old loves to swing.

Book: "Life on the Refrigerator Door"

I recommend the book:

"Life on the Refrigerator Door: Notes between a Mother and Daughter"
By: Alice Kuipers

Great Book! Simple yet very well-crafted.

Movie

I highly recommend this movie:

http://www.sonyclassics.com/thecounterfeiters/

It is rated R and there is some nudity but I do feel the message outweighs it enough.

It's about the Holocaust and our desire to live but at what cost?

It makes me realize I don't value my life as much as I should. I am more blessed than I usually realize and should make more of each day.

I really think it's a good movie.

It made me sad only us and 1 other couple were in the theater. If nothing else, we all need to remember what happened in the Holocaust and this movie makes it so much more personal than just knowing so many died.

Listening to God

"Theologian Henri Nouwen admits, 'It's not easy to sit and trust that in solitude God will speak to you-- not as a magical voice but that He will let you know something gradually over the years.'"

"Death by Suburb: How to Keep the Suburbs from Killing your Soul" By: David L. Goetz (p 32)
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep… You are richer than 75% of this world.



If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish some place… You are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.



If you woke up this morning with more health than illness... You are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.


If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation… You are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death… You are more blessed than 3 billion people in the world.


If your parents are still alive and still married… You are very rare, even in the United States of America.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful… You are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder… You are blessed because you can offer healing touch.

If you can read… You are more blessed than over 2 billion people in the world that cannot read at all.
