Ack. What a week.

3 weeks of sickness from one person to another. Lysol has been my best friend—except it hasn’t been there for me when I needed it. We all still ended up passing it around.

high fevers. cough. tired. crankiness.

(except mom and dad escaped the high fevers)


I got this book in the mail from a fellow Paperback Swapper. I had seen it at last year’s prayer gathering for IJM and wanted to buy it.

Embracing Your Freedom: A Personal Experience of God's Heart for Justice

I can’t wait to read it.

Right now I am reading this:

Tea with Hezbollah: Sitting at the Enemies Table Our Journey Through the Middle East

I am only chapter 1 but am very intrigued!

On adoption news:  We are very close to the top of the list.  This makes for a momma who jumps every time the house phone rings (the phone the agency calls on first and no one else really uses.) The eldest has decided she is starting a yahoo support group for children of “crazy impatient adopting mommas!”

I was bummed last week sitting at the counter and Rachel tells me that she can quote our scripture: then does so, perfectly. 


The one that has been on our wall in our kitchen since, I think, last summer.

A reminder from God, I believe!


  1. I love that verse! It's so true, and we can be so impatient.
    love ya!

  2. Sickness has gone around here too! YUCK!!!! That combined with Joanna's teething...... :) Fun fun fun

    Praying it will be soon for you phone call :)

  3. Are you saying Greg didn't escape the crankiness? :o)
