Blogging again

...It's been so long since I've been able to post regularly on my blog. So much has been happening, that it seems there is hardly time to breathe at times. Now that fall is here, school is started, routines are forming, I hope to be able to slowly work some writing back into my schedule (of course there are still a few projects to finish first). The last couple weeks of my Colossians memory verses have urged "being thankful" three verses in a row, so let's start there:
Colossians 3:15-17
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
377. 17 days of only diapering one child. Though potty training progress is 100% complete, I rejoice in only having one child in diapers...instead of two.
378. A good start to our quest of home learning...we're starting our third week of the year and every week gets better and better
379. a precious new life to love
380. first hints of fall color splashing on the trees and grass

383. kids begging you to read one page more (even out of "school" books)

385. mirrors, to see ourselves, our reflections, no matter how clean we are, and especially when we are dirty so we know what needs to be cleaned
386. The Lords gentle cleaning hands
387. 101 uses of blankets and couch cushions
388. warm soup on rainy days
389. routines that bring peace and blessing
390. dates with my husband
