I hope my “Week that Was” posts are not getting too tedious for you. I am enjoying them so they will probably stick around for a little while. It’s easy to get swept away in the daily ebb and flow of life. These weekly entries help me pay attention, they help me to slow things down a bit and document these precious days.
So here they are in all their everyday-glory: pictures from our week with captions.
1. Momma attempts to bake something other than drop cookies with three eager and “helpful” children under foot.
3. Brothers and Matchbox cars
My thought for the week: Loving someone doesn’t mean you have the right to show them less courtesy and kindness than you do the sales-clerk at Target. Manners aren’t just for the people we brush into in town. The ones we are closest to deserve our best but so often they are the ones get the dregs, the leftovers, the curtness, the careless remark. If we cannot show Christ’s love to our own spouses and children, then we cannot show it to our community.
