Gabe just walked the girls outside to go down to the bus stop and hollered, “Bring Nina out here quick!!” What in the world could be so amazing that I needed to bring my 2-year-old out into the cold in her t-shirt and panties (yes, the potty training begins today…)?
Um, a BUCK! A male deer! In our neighborhood! In our neighbor’s front yard! We live in the city, people. Well, not exactly IN the city. And our neighborhood does back up to a woods. But still. Wow. That was pretty cool. I ran in to get Gabe’s camera, and he (the buck) high-tailed it outta there.
So, I’m in good spirits this morning. Committed to praying for our new President and Vice-President. Congratulations, Barack & Michelle Obama and Joe & Jill Biden. I look forward to seeing God’s plan for the next four years, and I pray that each of us will do our part to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. And stand firm in our convictions that God’s Word is truth. And love our neighbors. And seek God’s will in every single aspect of our days and lives.
We’ve had to make some tough financial decisions this week, and my heart is feeling a little sore. I know that God will provide. I just wish that my instantaneous response to financial “crisis” was a sense of peace and not of fear and anxiety. God’s working on me though. My response time is getting quicker and quicker. 🙂 Praise You, Lord!
Looking forward to a glorious weekend of family fun! Steph and Kelly will be here from out-of-state. And Bethany and Jess (and fam) and Mom and Dad and Grandpa will all be here on Friday afternoon. And some will be staying through Saturday. Thank you, Lord, for my family. They’re beyond awesome.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
