Time with My Kids

These are pics from our park day yesterday! God's been talking to me a lot, as I've mentioned, about being intentional with my time with the kids. About playing with, not just arranging play for them. We had a blast! Gracie's new favorite word? "Wook, Mama" This could be for anything from showing me that I have hair or teeth or just showing me her food that she's eating!


I must close this Wordless Wednesday (I know I'm never wordless, but you have to admit this is WAY fewer words than I usually use!) with requests for prayers for 2 families.

http://lazydranch8.blogspot.com/ and http://cold-water-news.blogspot.com/
Both families are newly adoptive families and both lost a spouse this week. Please pray for them and for their children. I cannot truly fathom their pain right now, but I know ONE who can. Oh Jesus, comfort them! Fill them with your peace right now. Guide them and love them and give them wisdom and protect their hearts with your truth!

Brandi,
Thanks for sharing these blogs... We need to surround these families in prayer. What a difficult time, I remember living through this 1 1/2 yrs ago when we lost my sis's hubby of 33 yrs. tragically. The only peace comes from Jesus!!
Loved the pics!!!
Love ya

Isn't that just awful about those families. I almost can't believe it.

It's a wonderful reminder that we should want to spend quality time with our kids, not just watch them play. Thanks.

wow...i went to the other links that you mention with the heartache right now...oh my...what a hard deal. I am so thankful for the priviledge to pray for them and to know that they know the One who loves them so. Makes us hug our loved ones a little tighter, huh? And maybe spend some time at a park just enjoying them! :) love you.

Cute Kids!

Thanks for sharing those links. It's so good that we can pray for eachother when there's a need in one of our lives~ even people you've never met. So good when we can lift our brothers and sisters up...
