Signs of Life

Installment #2!

Instead of seeing imperfections as thorns in my decorating flesh, I want to open my eyes and see them as signs of life.  These messes all stem from gifts in my life.  I still clean the mud off shoes (or make my boys do it), but I also know that if a neighbor walked in and saw a trail of mud, I wouldn't need to be embarrassed.  Its just proof of lives being lived, and houses are for living.  My home is a reflection of our life, and life's messes can be gloriously beautiful. ~The Nesting Place

Throwback Thursday

March 2008

Two sweet little girls who think their daddy hung the moon, laughing at him being silly next to me.




The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

Psalm 37:23

Lovin' the Lake

A year and a half ago, my sister's family moved to Texas and took three cousins away.  :(  We saw them just briefly last summer, but that was a looong time ago, so we were thrilled to hear their grandma was flying them out for a couple weeks.

I called and arranged a time to visit, which the kids were completely excited about it, but when we unexpectedly got the full "lake experience", they were ecstatic. They live in such a beautiful spot and it was a perfect day with little activity on the lake.  Such a fun lifestyle!

I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves....kids + water = FUN!












 





 



 These three....thrill seekers!!  Not happy unless they're getting thrown around at top speed!





 



But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.
John 4:14
