As I'm sitting here on a Sunday morning, drinking my coffee (of course..I wouldn't have the gumption to write anything without it), watching the clock to know when to peel myself up off my well-worn rocker (seriously, it has seen my rear-end way more since becoming a blogger than when I was a new Mama with babies fresh from the hospital) so we won't be late for church. What to write...hummm...

I got such a sweet comment & email from my newest buddy Jan last night who made my day totally. She encouraged me greatly because even though I totally love writing, I grow weary not knowing who is rolling their eyes, who, perhaps may be cracking a smile...who I'm making mad...so on and so on. First let me say this regarding my political posts. I think it was obvious by my fierce passion who I wanted to win (if you didn't catch onto that, seriously...I'm worried) but my passion was never about MY guy winning but GOD'S VALUES being implemented (as much as possible). Ok, I'm trying to not go down that road again of getting all fired up...my point here is...my greatest passion, however, is my witness as a Christian. My BIGGEST job, responsibility, ministry, desire is to live out a life of FAITH IN CHRIST. There is nothing political about that...it's a relationship that compares to no other. I think about Paul in the Bible (no, I am not a Paul..or Paula...never would I consider myself to be such an incredible Christian..though I wish I was), he was the most bold, in your face, I'm-standing-up-for-what-is-right-no-matter-what-you-do-to-me kind of guy. He KNEW he was RIGHT and he never backed down. And YES, he even confronted other Christians when they were off base. He was imprisoned, beaten, ridiculed, and eventually killed for his stand. Well, I certainly hope I never have to endure what he did (please Lord..please no!) but I certainly do hope to have his boldness no matter what.



.....Abruptly changing the subject....

Last night we did the family-shopping thing. I am telling you, my big boys are getting more and more independent...off doing their own thing so much of the time, I hate it but know that's just the way it is. If they never wanted to leave the house or do stuff with their friends I guess I would be a bit worried, huh? So, when we are all together it is such fun. Adding Lucy to the mix has only added a ton of joy and laughter. She has just started saying, "Hi-low"...you know, a mix of Hi and Hello. It is the cutest thing ever. At one point in the store we were moving on from what we were all looking at & the boys were lagging behind...Lucy then said, "Come on boys!!" It was such a hoot. She really does rule the roost around here.



On our last shopping trip I was looking for a sweater I had seen in an ad & I said to my fellas, "Ok, keep your eye out for an argyle sweater". Well, what in the world was I thinkin' when I said that? They don't know corduroy from satin. Nick said, "ok, like what color is that similar to?" HUH?? K said, "what is argyle?" The saddest part...they were completely serious. **sigh** Oh, Never mind. Lucy will be so much fun when she is older and more fashion conscience because I am giving up on these men of mine.

Okay, so I have been watching all day for a post from my sweet buddy. Oh! I just realized, maybe you are on the road - driving here to play with us. Oh, okay. THat makes sense. We sure hope so. Then when you get here we will head to TJ's and look for a sweather - probably in a light shade of Argyle...maybe?!! Come on, I'll make coffee - nice and strong like you and me like it.
Love you!! PS Tell K there is still snow on the ground from last night..it didn't melt today. The snow is calling him back...
