My life is not my own...
This realization can be both troubling or comforting. We never realllly know do we, what's coming next. The Bible even tells us it is vanity to plan ahead for only God knows what is around the next turn. Peter makes an amazing proclaimation acknowledging Jesus as the Messiah, a revelation from the Spirit of God and so soon after that he denies even knowing Jesus things because he was so scared. How heartbreaking.
I could be mad or irritated at the inconveniences, the disappointments, the uncertainties or I can increase my faith. My prayer is for contentment this summer. It gets busy and I get lonely and feel isolated the busier Chris gets. I can be irritable or make the most of these times with my children and be thankful for a faithful husband who cares so much and a God who has blessed his work to provide for us.

For Mother's Day the children, Chris and Dad A took Carol and I out to lunch. I was hungry for Chinese, so we did a buffet at Mongolian Grill. Three of my childre...THREE... ate frog legs! I could hardly stand to see them next to the Beef and Broccoli on the buffet and then I get back and there they are eatin' em! I think their father put them up to it! Him and grandpa! "Tastes like chicken, Mom have some!"
No a stinking chance! These children turn their noses up at most everything... and I am doing my best this week to make all of their least favorites, just because.
