Multitudes on Monday - February 20, 2012

Being busy always makes it harder to find peace, I think.  I love that God asks us to "be still" and know Him.  I've been bad about carving out those important pockets of time this week - I'm determined to do better in the days to come.

Still, despite my failings, He is always faithful.  This week has been no different:

My Little Man, excited to peel his own carrots, saying that "it's the best job ever!"

- Making valentines with My Big Helper.  She made each one individually and it took days, but it was fun to have some crafty time with her.

- Time hanging out and playing with friends at our Valentine's Party.

- My Big Helper is super excited about her new Bible and daily reading plan.  :-)

- I won a giveaway and a whole box of cakes in a jar showed up at my doorstep.  Yay for chocolate - delivered, even!

- Some beautiful, warm sunny days when we could play outside - more than usual.

- The neighbor's dogwoods are blooming!  They're so pretty and always remind me of my great-grandmother's tree outside the farmhouse.

- Violet-like flowers blooming all over the front yard.  They had my Big Helper quite excited this week!

- A playful, happy kitten.

- Our first Chinese food dinner as a family, and the kids loved it!

- While it was 69 a few days ago, today it snowed!  We've got much more than this now and school has been cancelled.  Snow day at home!  :-)

What blessings have you seen this week?


  1. Oh, I love a boy who thinks peeling carrots is fun :) Thanks for sharing your list. We're having a wild and crazy winter in Iowa, too. From no coats to snow pants. Right now our snowman is just a wet hat and scarf lying on the brown grass. Who knows if tomorrow we'll make him a snow body again! I'm thankful for the blessing of variety!

    1. I never thought of it that way, Alicia, but I like that: the blessing of variety. Thanks for sharing!
