Let Him Hear Your Prayer And See Your Tears

It's one of those days.  The days you spend almost continually exhausted from weeping.

His Promise

It is an early Winter Saturday afternoon.  I'm enjoying Bible journalling after some time in the garden with the younger children.  The shadows are long, the sun is still warm and the last of the autumn leaves are hanging on by a thread.  Slowly they drift one by one to the ground.

Happy Birthday!

Master Jedidiah turned 10 this week.  Due to Pa being in hospital suddenly we had to have his birthday celebrations over two different days.  We were able to finish up and have birthday cake and party games last night.

Every single time I race around with my phone to take a picture of my handsome two eldest sons, they scatter.  This morning they kinda thought better of it ... don't know why, but I gave silent thanks to God.  I really value picture of our days together, every Sunday morning I am blessed afresh when I see them present their best for our church service not because we want to look like we are anything but because they want to present themselves as their best.  If that's a clean, pressed t-shirt then so it is. 
 Our heart shows through in our outward presentation.

So here they are.  It took one second and I was happy!  Now just to get them ALL together in one place for one moment in time ... psst! they have agreed to have a photo shoot together next week whilst I'm away - I asked Charlotte to take over the planning.  It will be my Mothers' Day gift.  Isn't that a good idea!

Good fudge needs a good recipe, time to prepare and bake.  Then good fudge must be enjoyed and savoured.  Kind of like our home.  One day at a time with the LORD!
