I'm using the suitcase to store blocks and other extra toys that I don't want out everyday... I used to have baskets under the crib. I like this better.
I love the colors of the old Fisher Price toys... they coordinate perfectly with the colors in Virgil's room. LOVE that orangey-red color!
I woke up this morning feeling very low and discouraged... Do you ever get that way? Sometimes I feel like such an inadequate mom, wife, and even follower of Christ, and I often get overwhelmed by all that life sets out before me. It's hard to dive into mothering, school, and business responsibilities on days like today.... that's why I decided to do a post first, instead :) I think cleaning, business, and even school today will have to take a backseat to trying to refocus and get my mind and attitude back on the right track.
My devotions this morning from "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young was very appropriate...
"Relax in My everlasting arms. Your weakness is an opportunity to grow strong in awareness of My Almighty Presence. When your energy fails you, do not look inward and lament the lack you find there. Look to Me and My sufficiency..."
"The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms."
"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD."
