Friday wrapup


give the boy something to EAT!

Happy Friday, everybody! I'm about to break out of this apartment and take the bambinos somewhere, anywhere. The walls are closing in.
I haven't mentioned yet that I'm on a diet... just trying to work off some tummy. When Leah was here, I took her to the Y with me and she instructed me on how to use the machines. She said she's been waiting for this day for 15 years. :) And we've set up a low-carb plan, which is really challenging for me since I live on carbs. LOVE them. So cutting out the Cokes and the BlueBell has actually been easier (and the chocolate and the poptarts) than cutting out potatoes and bread and biscuits. Mmmmm..... biscuits.
And I'm supposed to be working out at least 3 times a week. Not impossible. Just.Need.Motivation.
Going thriftshopping today. If I find a rocking bridesmaid and wedding-attendee dress, that oughta do it.

And my yearly reminder... Mother's Day can be a really hard time for some people. 
If you know someone who has lost a child, acknowledge their motherhood... 
If you know someone who yearns for children, love them...
If you know someone who is separated from their children or their children are separated from God, surround them, pray for them. 
Just keep your eyes open. 

Oh, and if you want info on how to watch The Call in Jerusalem live on Sunday, go here.


  1. workouts will make you feel wonderful, eventually

    "Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things. I am tempted to think there are no little things." -- Bruce Barton

    "Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure." -- Jim Rohn

  2. just a one more little tidbit for your reading pleasure...

  3. i love you jess....

    i am so happy to see you with those 3 lovely children and know that God is smiling at you and how you care for them and enjoy them like He enjoys them.... and you....

    I know that you have other precious babies who are being mentored by the heavenly hosts and that this is a bitter-sweet time for you and yours...

    none of us can claim to understand anything about life and death... but we are learning to trust in the Author

  4. A Mother's Day related hint-

    I do not live in the same state as my mother.

    You people have some very easy questions you could ask to figure me out. I will answer any questions on Sunday very direct, no twist. Good luck (ha ha ha).

  5. Feed that child!.........

    He's HUNGRY............

    Are you Josh Peterson?

  8. and now a poem from anonom. of what year I do not know that either:

    What is home?

    “A roof to keep out the rain?
    Four walls to keep out the wind?
    Floors to keep out the cold?
    Yes, but home is more than that.
    It is the laugh of a baby,
    the song of a mother,
    the strength of a father,
    warmth of loving hearts,
    lights from happy eyes,
    kindness, loyalty, comradeship.
    Home is first school and first church for young ones,
    where they learn what is right, what is good, and what is kind,
    where they go for comfort
    when they are hurt or sick;
    where joy is shared and sorrow eased;
    where fathers and mothers are respected and loved,
    where children are wanted;
    where the simplest food is good enough for kings because it is earned;
    where money is not as important as loving-kindness;
    where even the tea kettle sings from happiness.
    That is home. God bless it!”

    - Anon.
