New Today

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22, 23

Oh, how I love that verse! What a comfort!

I'm starting this day early, thanks to my very excellent husband who gave me a needed break last night. After a busy morning visiting with my sweet friend Pam (my 'neighbor to the north'--Nebraska :) ) and a full afternoon at our homeschool co-op, I got the kids inside, changed a diaper, and lay down on the floor.

And stayed down.

My very excellent husband took the three most needy children with him to Wal-Mart to buy a very large pizza to feed us all, came home (where I was still laying on the floor), baked the pizza and set the table, and cleaned up afterward. I know, I know...I'm bragging...but isn't he great? I was in bed at 8:20 last night, which was wonderful. However, due to the fact that I didn't get Annesley up for her last feeding, I woke up at about 3:30 this morning needing to feed her. You moms understand what I mean. So, in the three hours between then and now, I have done laundry, read my Bible, read online, made coffee, given thought to our school day today...enjoyed the quiet.

Have a blessed day!

Thanks for meeting me yesterday with your busy day :). I was thinking about you after we left-that you had a BIG day. So I am glad your husband could help out, AND that you got to bed early (even if you were full of milk :). -Dana

I loved getting to talk more, though it was still a challenge with 10 kids to keep track of! Maybe one of these days we'll get some quiet moments in person, but for now, we'll take what we can get, right? :)
