Saying Nothing

It seems I should just abandon blogging as I have been infrequent in my entries and haven’t had much to say. However, I often compose blogs in my mind throughout my daily activities that never make it out of my head. Something inevitably happens that keeps me from sitting down and sharing what is surely to be insightful. When I do actually sit down to blog, it always turns out to be at a time when I have no great insights (like now!). However, I have decided to keep the blog in case eventually some day I take or make the time to share the really great insights I have!!

But here’s what has been happening. We went on a little trip south over last weekend and ended with spending a few days with Mark’s parents. It was an enjoyable time overall, but we are glad to be off the road again for a while. While we were at Mark’s parents’ house, we went out to celebrate my final birthday on Tuesday night sans kids. That was a nice change of pace. Then on Wednesday night we had cake with Mark’s parents’, his brother and sister-in-law, and the cousins. I appreciated all the fuss, especially since I will no longer be celebrating birthdays after this one 😉

The joke around our house is that when one hits 39, one ceases to have birthdays. But seriously, I am truly thankful for all the days God has given to me along with the blessings of 4 wonderful sweet children and a husband to love me. God is good.

The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; Thou dost support my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. Indeed my heritage is beautiful to me. I will bless the Lord who has counseled me. Indeed my mind instructs me in the night. I have set the Lord continually before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Thou wilt make known to me the path of life; In thy presence is fulness of joy; In Thy right hand there are pleasures forever. Ps. 16:5 – 8; 11

The Cast is Off

Yesterday, Charis’s cast came off–yeah!!! We are so grateful that she is free to play normally again. The cast didn’t really slow her down any though. If anything, it honed her walking skills. When she broke her arm, she was walking, but she would resort to crawling when it seemed more convenient. After the cast was on, crawling became more difficult, so walking was the better, easier option of getting where she wanted to go.
