131 - a happy healthy boy again... he seems thrilled to be feeling better too! Here's a little video clip of his happy self first thing this morning.
132 - a new year... new beginnings... God's mercies are new every morning... and every new year :)
133 - a reminder from Ann Voskamp about "falling forward" into the new year and not dwelling on the failures and unaccomplished to-do-lists of last year... I'm thankful to be able to "fall forward" into God's grace and safe arms...looking and moving forward with thanksgiving knowing that He can redeem the scraps of last year and gives hope and purpose for the coming year...
“But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead…
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
134 - Catching a glimpse of what happens after I leave the room and little man falls asleep... dead to the world... surrounded with EVERYTHING in one end of his crib. Didn't realize he had put a few extra things in there - must have hid them under a blanket ;)
136 - being able to go to a skating party just for the social aspect of it... since no one will let me step on the ice right now... :) A friend took AJ for a few spins around the ice and he LOVED it. Love watching him laugh and growl (his new thing when he's excited) in glee.
137 - Getting the Scripture Memory Challenge off to a good start and having so many eager participants from around the globe! Everyone's welcome!
138 - The technology to watch the free live-stream of the Passion 2013 conference sessions. I especially enjoyed & benefited from Beth Moore and Louie Giglio's messages this year. I missed a few of the sessions, so can't speak for the whole event. Thankful they opened it up for anyone to watch/listen!
139 - Reading a good book called Undaunted by Christine Caine... I'm half-way through - recommend it.
140 - Making it to 37.5 weeks.... this little girl is coming SOOOOON!
