The weather has been uplifting and truly amazing. The sun and His beauty allow these days to feel normal and like a personal gift. Tuesday I was able to share in part of Hayleighs field trip. It’s fun to watch her interact with her peers. I haven’t had a chance to get to know her peers other than what she tells me. It was a delight to share in her busy day.
Mollie is officially potty trained. At the Armstrong household we celebrate this victory with a trip to Build-A-Bear. Mollie is in love with dogs at this moment so we have a new puppy in the house, his name has changed twice, and he most definitely has pink bows and a pink leash. As she was walking to bed she declared her delight, “build-a-bear was fun!” Another highlight as we entered BAB it was empty and, the ladies asked us why we were there? Mollie’s response,” I don’t pee in my pants anymore.” Honesty is a virtue.
Tonight Paige and I spent some time just us. We enjoyed conversation about the complexity of relationships in second grade. We took in face time that is essential for her. I love her tender heart. I am reminded of how my heart can be softer. Thinking like them can be challenging.
Simple yet rewarding.
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning.
2 Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.
3 O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.
4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.
5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.
6 You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.
8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.
