Love you Sunshine!!!!
What fun to wake up this morning and see what our sanctuary for the month looks like in the daylight. We worked hard on pack last night and got everything situated. Went to bed around midnight. Baby was sick with a fever of 104 all night, so that was stressful. Still watching him today to decide what to do with him. Virus? Ear infection back? Not sure. Don’t want to spend tuckers move to have a day at the hospital, but might have to seek treatment.
Today’s been fun exploringThe area. I was a bit nervous when I woke this morning and Hunter Judah and Isaiah were missing. They went off on an adventure and I fear the worst. They returned so happy with tons of shells and a complete skeleton of a horseshoe crab. Excited to explore and starting to venture. We got all the bikes working and went on a family bike ride to explore the local area. Went and visited the beach and check that out. Gorgeous.
My favorite quote of the day was eden exclaiming, as she twirled in the water, “I have never been to the ocean before!”
We’re going to venture into town tonight to get the rest of our groceries. Perishables.
I’m resting in the sun on the porch with baby Z, he taking a nap on my chest, the others went back to the beach to play some soccer in this 4 o’clock daytime high temperature of 50.
Ving and Hunter were supposed to catch up on her schoolwork but they’re behind for the week, but there are so many distractions. Sunset will bring more time and opportunity.
One thought on my heart today has been that the earls, my cousins, giving us this house is a gift of this month to use as our sanctuary, a blessing. My heart has been overflowing with gratitude, and amazement at this free gift. Jesus giving me my free gift of salvation is the biggest gift ever. But for earthly gifts, this one is generous and huge.
I am praying for God to do mighty things while here. Trying to make note of them in my heart. What do I want these days to count for? How do I want myself to improve and become more Christlike? How can I take better care of myself, my children, and my husband. I asked the Lord to help me order those into realistic goals for each day.
