Rest & Adventure

A couple weeks ago during communion, where the pastor prayed over my children, he included a phrase asking God to be their rest and be their adventure. I can not tell you how that has stuck with me. It has been repeated in my own prayers and in my discussions with my children, and it informs […]

What I See when She Sleeps

Women see children with different eyes than husbands do. ~Lisa-Jo Baker, Surprised By Motherhood, p132~ I sneak into your room while you nap, tiptoe gently across your rug, peer into your crib. Precious little limp body, resting so peacefully and sweetly. Blankie nearby, left thumb in your mouth ~ just the way you like it. […]
