How do people keep up with these things?

My blog is appropriately titled, for sure! I know there are different seasons in life. There are seasons when blogging, for instance, will be more possible. Then, there are seasons when life is so busy, we can barely check all of our emails. My life has been a little more like the latter lately. Sorry friends who were counting on some blogs. Oh, what's that? You didn't miss them? My wonderfully written and oh so captivating blogs?? Ha! I've continued my running, friends, on days that sleep and conditions provide me that opportunity. It has been good for my body and soul. It's given me contemplative, prayerful time, all while burning extra calories I've been storing (for a rainy day, I guess ;)) I'm up to four miles at a comfortable pace, and that makes me happy. The marathoner in me wants that number to be more like eight or ten, though. Alas, I must remember: seasons, seasons. :) We've been finishing up the "school year". Our learning will continue this summer with grammar, math, and PLENTY of summer reading. Jaysen will be starting kindergarten in the fall. He is more than ready, if you ask me. My heart has found much encouragement in the book, "Large Family Logistics" by Kim Brenneman. I recommend this to any mother who wants to better her keeping of her household, whatever the size of her family. The tips, encouragement, and biblical truths she shares are a blessing. Oh, and be ready to feel some conviction, too. Is it just me who feels conviction when studying the ways of the Proverbs 31 woman? I'm thankful for the spurring on towards good deeds. I'm looking forward to laid back summer days and watching these little ones, who've been entrusted to my care, grow. I want to cherish all the little things in the days to come, as I'm reminded so often how fast the seasons change. Lord, help me to not miss a thing! Talk to you soon, friends.


  1. I'm reminded of the Aerosmith song, "I don't wanna close my eyes! I don't wanna fall asleep, cause I'd miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing!" :)

  2. Our family is small but I think I will have to check take a look at "Large Family Logistics" Lord knows I need help!
