a few words, a lotta cute

my little lovies, i am finding myself wordless these days, and that...is RARE!! maybe this is God calling me to be quiet. cause i'm sure He wishes i'd shut my mouth a lot of the time. i am busy doing the preschool thing, back and forth, and washing up all the clothes b/c it is about 40 today and will be 80 by the time i reach dothan in 2 days. and that is hard to manage. but i can swing it. also, thursday, i will go register my oldest for kindergarten. sad b/c he is getting so big. awesome, b/c it will cut my hollering refereeing time in half.

does anyone else feel like there is so much noise in your life, that you'll never find God if you can't just be still and sweet Lord help me...QUIET?! do you know what i'm sayin? and i have said it a jillion times and haven't kept my appointment yet. i am NOT a morning person. never have been. even as a baby, i found out. but i SO want to be. and i KNOW if i would could just get on up and get going in the mornings, that would be my ideal time. didn't i rattle on something about giving God my first fruits here a while back? i'm not gonna link to it b/c i know it's there and well, a link would be a reminder that yet again...a little less talk and a lot more action would go a LONG way. amen? so while i LOVE you dearly, i really should be finishing the laundry while i have no hollering referring to do for another hour.
and so...i leave you with nekkid baby. i mean, is there anything better??

No! There is nothing better than a naked baby! Glad that your oldest is going to kindergarden, that will give you some time with other two! Glad to see you are back!

Heehee. Nope -- nothing better at all! What a doll!

You're absolutely right, Becky -- sometimes I think God wants to just reach down and place a hand on my shoulder to just make me still, stop running, and clear my mind. Unfortunately, I tend to shrug off that hand. Thanks for the reminder to pause and listen FIRST rather than as an after thought.

right there with you. that is why in the rare instance i am in the car alone, i NEVER listen to the radio. i want quiet! i feel like all i've been doing lately is getting angry, frustrated and doing more yelling than i care to admit. hang in there and i will too!

You know from my blog what a struggle I have with the whole be still and be quiet thing. I believe it's a life long challenge to seek after God's stillness. I don't think we'll ever achieve it. But we will be blessed in the pursuit!

I'm so with you on the "not a morning person" thing. I keep trying to go ahead and get up in the mornings thinking the same thing you do that if I could/would just get up and get going, things would be so much better. I could get a bible study in and maybe a workout. Hasn't worked yet. I usually end up asleep on the couch...

Some one should come up with a quiet time tape. That way you could put it on and listen while you were in the shower. (Books just don't work so well when wet.) The point is that I have found being in the shower is one of the few times that I am alone AND quiet. It is the time that I spend talking to God and praying for people on my prayer list (course I don't usually let them know that I'm thinking about them in the shower!!!) and asking for God's help with my weaknesses. It's amazing how much easier my day seems after I have spoken my heart.
