a) getting teeth OR
b) not feeling well (which both harold and i have colds or something cold-ish)
i'm not complaining though because she's been super delightful but napping and eating aren't so hot right now and she's been kinda clingy, which paired with work, makes for little blog time durn-it. :)
nevertheless, life is good. she has moved from crawling to pulling up to standing on her own for several seconds at a time unassisted. i'm not saying she'll be walking soon, but i'm not saying she won't either. time will tell.
so here's today...
can't you see those bumpy gums just fresh for some teeth...
and those bumps come with lots and lots of drool too. drool on everything and everywhere to be frank.
notice the red eyes. she was fussing because her socks kept slipping on the wood floor and she couldn't walk around her jumper (which she never uses anymore because she's WAY too busy for anything stationary)
a girl after my own heart. she was finding a recipe for tonight's dinner. she has a opinion you know. no teeth with which to chew, but still an opinion ;)
this afternoon when i was driving home i was coming over a hill in our neighborhood and from where i was you could see the rays of sun bursting forth through the breaks in the thick clouds. you've seen what i'm talking about and it's breathtaking. the beams of sun reached all the way from the heavens and scattered about the earth. they went as wide as i could see. immediately i thought of the verse in the OT that says:
"For The Eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him."
2 Chronicles 16:9
just as those strong beams of sun were finding patches of earth to warm from behind those clouds, our Lord is scanning the earth through the sin and darkness to find those loyal ones with which He could warm Himself. oh how i want to be found loyal.
have a good week. love from bham...
