Stew, dry ice and a quiet, powerful prayer (what!? I'm out of cool titles, ok!?)
This Beef/Bacon/Butternut Squash Stew is in my oven right now and even my eye lashes are drooling.
It smells sooooooo good.
I 'may' have left four small children, dry ice, a lighter and a candle in a kitchen by themselves for close to an hour yesterday. Maybe.
But for reals.
The science book should be titled: Projects That Keep Your Kids Magically Entertained for Hours At Time.
But, I realize that is mouthful so....
These little ditties were a hit.
They now have glitter puff paint stars all over them 'cause ain't no project finished around here without glitter.
(I know, I know...that snowflake brad would totally melt on the sun, but I'm cheap so snowflakes it was, k?)
Better day today.
Didn't mean to alarm anyone yesterday.
I still had joy, I was still thankful.
I was just tired.
Nothing earth shattering.
I was just journaling.
Pretty sure most mama's 'get' this.
Everyday has 10,000 highs and bright, beautiful moments.
It's just sometimes the 3 hard moments are enough to knock you out cold.
Nothing a good nights sleep and some refocusing through scripture and prayer couldn't whip into shape.
Not sure what to do about that sleep thing but the prayer and scripture, I was all over that!
Remain in me, as I also remain in you.
