::this week::

This is Jeremy's last week at his job.  He'll (we'll) be in full-time ministry as of next week.  I'm so excited to see him do what he was clearly created to do.  God has used him so much, in so many people's lives over the last many months, I can only imagine how much this will increase as he has a lot more time to devote to ministry.

This is my first week of only watching 1 kid in addition to Noah, and it has been a nice break so far.

Transition has been the ongoing theme in our house recently... potty training, big boy bed, watching a new baby, no longer watching the same 1 year old who I've watched the last year, J's last day at the office, and then his upcoming trip to India (our first time apart for more than 1 night EVER!), our new baby due in May.

praising:  some new unexpected provision for our ministry/ family... we still need more, but God has been so faithful at providing.  the grace of others, and God!

praying:  for wisdom and patience in parenting... it has been a rough 2 weeks with our stubborn 2 year old.  for Noah to have a teachable and obedient heart.

thankful for:  nice weather.  lots of time recently to catch up with friends.  some new hand me down clothes for Noah.  friends.  community.  this city.  a gift card to Whole Foods.  a date night with my love this Saturday.  this beautiful city.

reading:  1 Chronicles, Jeremiah, Letters from a Skeptic

cooking:  fish tacos, salad with cilantro lime dressing, quick refried beans, lemon bars, pumpkin cream cheese bars, applesauce muffins, BBQ and Thai chicken pizza, Thai tilapia red curry, chicken satay

doing: a few dinners/ coffee/ walk dates with friends.  sorting clothes... Noah's old clothes for Elisha, maternity clothes, some new hand me downs for Noah that are too big and need to be stored. ladies Bible study through the Psalms.

pondering:  Matthew 8:13 And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment. -I want to be constantly believing God for BIG things and not limiting Him with my faith..

blessed by:1 Chronicles 16:23-25  Sing to the Lord, all the earth! Tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and he is to be feared above all gods.

challenged by: Psalm 19:14  May the words of my mouth and meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and redeemer.
