Quick update

I was reflecting on peace this AM, and how I am truly experiencing it while Pat's away. I was soaking up some Scriptures about how peace is something we pursue, contemplating how to turn my thoughts into a blog post.

Next thing I know...

- one child is tossing a hissy fit about boots (new boots chosen by said child last night) - apparently they're too puffy; said child left for school in runners, with a scowl on, and with stinky breath from unbrushed teeth
- one child spazzed on the way out the door because the snow pants were not easy enough to find - this is apparently my fault
- one child slept in and needed to be pushed every single step of the way this morning, and then some
- my comments on the blog are not being emailed to me, which appears to be a problem with my email server - instead of posting I was attempting to fix the problem
- my laundry shelf fell from it's perch and dropped all of its contents on the floor and into a hamper full of clean laundry (contents included powdered laundry detergent, 400 or so batteries, assorted screwdrivers, a picture hanging kit with approximately 2600 small pieces, and a basket full of new light bulbs)

As for blog posts, I suspect that this may be all you'll get today. Apparently I was feeling a bit too confident in my ability to seek God's peace and the enemy is setting out to knock me down a few notches. There were a couple battles this morning that I already allowed him to win, but I intend to have the victory of the war before the kids are home from school today! In Jesus' name.

Your prayers would not be wasted on me today.


  1. Tyler, my thoughts and prayers are with you on this difficult morning. I love children and how they test our boundaries every single moment of their waking lives.

  2. Sounds like loads of fun sweet girl. Praying for you!

  3. Sounds like my morning. Screaming & fighting children, missing shoes, stinky unbrushed teeth!
    Praying for you!

  4. BlueHost is definitely one of the best web-hosting company with plans for all of your hosting needs.


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
