On My Mind

A blog post just is not a post with out a photo. This was Ruby waiting, not so patiently for someone to please get her more water. Oh to have the troubles of a 2 year old. There are lots of new and exciting things going on around here.
  • Taylor is turning 11 in 15 days and counting. I pray for her to have a good solid foundation in Our Lord and Savior. She has many friends but no 'girlfriends' that live close enough to play with on a regular basis and she really wants that. She is also getting better at reading but not on the level I would like to see. She is a great helper around here and tends to pick up the slack when the boys are not doing their share. I want her to experience freedom and peace. She is a Blessing.
  • Our house is still on the market and we have not had any looks for a month now. It is hard for me to be patient and I really want some more space. I need to finish cleaning out Ruby's room to make room for baby. My craft and scrapbooking supplies are getting moved to Taylor's room and need some desperate organization. We also need to repair and paint the walls from the damage inflicted by Ian's cast. I need to be thankful that we have a house and that it has 4 bedrooms and be content with where we are right now. I am so happy to have friends in the area, they are truly good accountability for me and bring me such joy on a regular basis.
  • One of my children does not seem to respond to my parenting. I have tried blessings, consequences, punishment, rewards, You name it. I am discouraged and continually pray for wisdom.
  • The upcoming birth of baby #7 is such a time of fear and anxiety for me. It is a time of rejoicing and such a wonderful gift but I have a hard time trusting that all will go well. I have been reflecting on the Bible verses associated with Fear, please just pray for peace.
