Stephen and I spent the wee hours of the week before Christmas "making babies" we called it ;). By Christmas morning there was a whole tribe of peg people for Canaan to love. Such fun!
I am certain that all the bundling will be worth it when you enjoy one alongside a mug of tea;)

Oh yes! I listened to and highly recommend Tim Keller's sermon called "peace" in iTunes. It was posted november 2012.

What a special memory for you! Both of my grandmoms were gone before I was two. I wish I had grandmom memories but that wasn't in the cards for me!

Last year we even made it out to the beach on my birthday weekend. Maybe we could be so lucky again this year

Opportunities to love people. To make things right. To heal. To start afresh.

Using this mentality to help focus my energy on each task- if this was the last breakfast to serve, last chat over coffee, last pile of laundry to put away, last hug goodbye...

Prin, I totally agree. Stephen and I talked about this and on one hand I could say if I knew today was my last day all I would do would be kiss my family and write them letters to read for years to come. But when I think about this question as a resolution type question I think of it more like if this was a one shot deal to do whatever my hand finds to do today as best as I could... To apply the "last day" intensity to whatever I am given to do.

Thank you for your grace filled reply! I would like to say I was great in all my varied emotions but can honestly admit some of them where green eyes monsters;) praying each day to be ok with the ebb and flow without it growing fangs in my face, ya know?:)

I appreciate her noting the innate value in our children because they are made in God's image. When we remember that, we are compelled to love and be patient with them. Good reminder to be a person of respect for God and His children.

I'll take that as a compliment for both of us. The intensity I recognize as quite familiar ;)
