Selections from the sketchbook and life

We are moving again.  Have moved. Our house is smaller, but our hearts are fuller.  God is so good.  

 I hope to settle in this time.  To unpack the last box. I am well on my way, having exhumed the contents of a box three moves old.  Found a sweet teddy which my four year old has claimed as his own, tho it was first packed away before he was born. 

  

I wish I could share with you all the treasures, the joys, of answered prayers, of hope, of faith.  My God is faithful!  The One who made the smell of cedar groves and a boy’s heart beat with adventure.  He has called us to live, to know, to love, to serve.

  
 I think in heaven that I will look back clearly and sing all the more eloquently of my Savior’s work. Now I only glimpse His hand and then am dragged back into the fray.  Sitting quietly now, late at night with children sleeping, it is easy. Tomorrow there will be more boxes to unpack, bowls of cereal to pour, clothes to fold. To be in those moments also with a heart and mind towards Christ.  Well. That is the trick.  😉

Still God is good.

Mom, can I have a tattoo?

Today the request was for a Komodo Dragon. How could I refuse? The grandparents took him and his brothers to the zoo on Sunday.  Homespun temporary tattoos (ballpoint pen drawings on skin) are the norm around here.  Sometimes I do them, sometimes they do their own. At 6, 4 and 2 1/2 it can get pretty extensive. Full body crayola marker tats are quite common.   

It’s fun being a mom. 

Transformers

Because, with three small boys, this sort of thing is inevitable.transformers001transformers002transformers003

Edward and Alistair helped a bit with the coloring portion. But mostly they served as the drawing quality control and suggestion unit.   Edward informed me that I drew “Awesomest Prime’s” head wrong, as well as a few other important details. But overall, they were pleased with my efforts. 🙂
