Marriage....And Being Broken Together

"We (should not) make the mistake of thinking that marriage will provide the ultimate satisfaction for which we all hunger. To assume so would be to be guilty of blasphemy. Only God satisfies the hungry heart. Marriage is but one of the channels He uses to enable us to taste how deeply satisfying His thirst-quenching grace can be."

Baby Registry Must-Haves

I am quickly approaching the birth of our 3rd little blessing! I don't know what happens to women in the last trimester but I could be as cool as a cucumber thinking I'm completely prepared and then about week 30 hits and I feel completely unprepared! I start to doubt my current selection of blankets and bibs and before you know it, I feel like I'm starting all over with nothing.

Which is not true, and irrational. I need to stop.

BUT, I do loooove baby/maternity/nursing items so I've asked some of you guys to help me come up with a list of your favorite items. Thank you for your input!! I have also added some of my favorites, and they are nicely listed here for you.

Reading big books to little people...

I'm a big fan of reading. And I'm a really big fan of reading to children. I've been reading a novel from one of my favorite authors, LM Montgomery, to the girls for the past couple of weeks and I've been so surprised at how much my oldest is retaining. The language is a bit difficult to read and understand but she's doing great.

The Story of Our Old House

This will be a scrapbook sort of post. I don't remember the details of all of the renovations we've done over the past 6 years, but I've got pictures! It's amazing to look back. Many of you have asked why we have decided to sell and that is explained a little in my post, Change is Good. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.....
