1. Since having kids, I have always hated the baby food stage of a child’s life. Yes, I am lazy. It is such a hassle to try to feed a baby who is just learning to eat solid food teeny little bites on a rubber coated spoon that holds 2/1000th of a teaspoon of pureed goo. Did I mention that I am also impatient? Good news! My laziness is now referred to as baby led weaning! I feel so much better now. It is good to know I am not alone in the world. Also good to know there is a more politically correct phrase to use when describing myself.
2. All of the racially motivated news that’s been overwhelming us lately really makes me think. I’m not sure I want to go on record with any opinion, but my desire is to really see people as God sees them (I Samuel 16:7b).
The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
I also love this quote from Corrie ten Boom:
Today I know that such memories are the key not to the past, but to the future. I know that the experiences of our lives, when we let God use them, become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work He will give us to do.
3. I may only be capable of blogging once a month (or less), but that is where I am right now. We are enjoying the summer!
4. Our service at church and small group last night were so encouraging. This verse kept coming to mind (Hebrews 10:25):
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
