Fresh Air

After confining ourselves to the warmth of our house the past few days because of ridiculously cold temperatures, we were excited to get out and get some fresh air today. Though it was still pretty cold, the sun was shining and there was not too much wind. We (Kris, Aunt Heidi, and myself) took Caleb for a "walk" around the block. He enjoyed being outside and had fun on the sled, especially when Daddy went fast!

***Sorry for the amateur videotaping skills....I was running alongside Kris and Caleb (hence, the shakiness). And, please don't mind my LOUD voice. I never seem to remember that the video camera picks up my voice quite well. =) Oh, and after the fact, I realized that I should have been on the other side of Caleb so that his face was in the sun. Lessons learned....

Sneaky Boy...

Caleb's activity of choice the other evening...
Now that I think about it, he was very quiet for those few minutes.....
I should have known that he was up to something...

He took out EVERY SINGLE wipe.

"Was I not supposed to take them all out?"

At least he followed directions when I told him that he had to put them all back in.

I'd like to think that he is so proud of himself for cleaning up so well....but in reality, I would imagine that he is most happy with himself for managing to take out all the wipes in the first place.

Gotta love him. =)

A Good Reminder

I received this encouragement today.....a great reminder of truth...just what I need.

"No one has to remind you of the high cost of anxiety. Worry divides the mind. The biblical word for worry (merimnao) is a compound of two Greek words, merizo (to divide) and nous (the mind). Anxiety splits our energy between today’s priorities and tomorrow’s problems. Part of our mind in on the now; the rest is on the not yet. The result is half-minded living. … Anxiety is an expensive habit. Of course, it might be worth the cost if it worked. But it doesn’t. … Worry has never brightened a day, solved a problem, or cured a disease. … Sadly, worrying is one job you can’t farm out, but you can overcome it. There is no better place to begin than “beside the still waters,” where the Shepherd leads."

From Traveling Light by Max Lucado

Philippians 4:6

" not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."

Matthew 6:34

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
