What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Sunday, April 13, 2008


A day last week it topped 70 degrees and we took advantage of it by packing a picnic lunch and spending the day at the park. And I mean, the day. Playing on the equipment lasted a while, but we did lots of other things too. We made bark boats and watched them float (or not float) down streams. We went on a walk through the parks and made lots of great discoveries. We held our own concerts. We fed the masses of starved fish.

All in all, we had a ball.

That was, as Wendy (in Peter Pan) would say "The beginning of the end."

Now, I am still a sunburn while also nursing two sick kiddos.

It seems that the warm weather was too fleeting and the mix of the warm and cold has given both children a bad case of the sickies.

Burning temperatures. Horrible, breath-snatching coughs. Vomiting flem. Really pleasant things, like that.

We didn't make it to church this morning for this very reason and my Sabbath just isn't the same.

As a way of escape, I post the rest of the wonderful pictures from that wonderfully warm, blue skied, not-a-care-in-the-world day from last week.

May it's twin arrive soon and might we all be well enough to enjoy it when it gets here.

Oh yuck, the sickies! Praying they'll get over it quickly, and that you and Matt will stay healthy. BTW how are YOU feeling, pregnancy wise?

You poor things. Sick again. I hope you feel better soon. It is in the 70s here in Texas, but tonight we go back home to the cold! I sure do hope that spring is around the closest corner. Love, Mrs. B.
