It is completely necessary to blog or journal or take pictures or do SOMETHING to commemorate today, because I felt great! It is such a relief to just feel healthy and good sometimes. My family and I have been sick for weeks, and we are all pretty much back to normal now–hallelujah! The leaves are changing, and I feel very sure that I missed autumn last year entirely because it feels like it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. (Last fall, I was sick and in bed basically as the leaves turned and then quickly fell.)

Selah is happy in school, and I love doing “home school” with her when she comes home everyday. For about an hour and a half, we do reading, writing, math, Spanish, piano, Bible verses/prayertime, and whatever homework the teacher sends home. We don’t have time for all of that every day, but we just regularly do these things and it’s such fun, good quality time together.
Yemi is talking more! She is pretty stubborn and still not doing well in potty-training, but she’s a doll baby and she knows it. We’ve been having fun together. She is really into Elmo and Sesame Street, and as always Baby Einstein! We go to the Library every Wednesday for a class and she is learning to sit during a story and use the glue stick for crafts…it’s a little crazy because that child has fire in her eyes and she doesn’t enjoy settling in for a nice leisurely activity!
I give thanks for these days. I was so worried about what I should do, maybe go back to school, or how can I be more involved at church…and I cannot say what others should do, but for me, I’m supposed to be right here, right now, with all my heart. I can’t do more than this. I am perfectly limited in God’s will. And what I love about today is that I can see that clearly. That is indeed a gift!

  1. I think that blogging & journaling are often, if not always, the same thing. So you’ve got two birds with one stone with your post!

    How wonderful that you’ve come to know God’s will for your life at this time and place in your life.

    When all the necessary components come together to tell you what is good and right for you… Well, that is so sweet and heartening and wonderful!
