There are piles of unfolded laundry in my living room and unwashed dishes in the sink. The floor needs sweeping again and one of these days I’m going to put all the junk in my room in the storage shed. I’m exhausted, the kids are tired and cranky by this time of day, but daddy just came home.
Did I mention it’s VBS week?
That’s what I’m thankful for. That despite the fatigue that comes with a full week of fun and games, Annabelle is talking more than she ever has about Jesus. Madelynne has started saying “yes m’am” unprompted and her teachers keep telling me how smart she is. Amelia and Gus? They’re being taken care of by a swarm of tireless nursery workers who are the unsung heroes of God’s Amazing Wonders.
So that’s where we’ve been this week. Too busy to take pictures and too tired to post the ones still on the camera.
But it’s worth it for them to discover that church can be fun and God can do amazing things if we open our eyes to see.

Consider yourself hugged, while I look at you with a huge smile on my face and praise God with you for the way he's working in the lives of your family. And then I'll take the kids for a night so you and your hubby can have a night to yourselves, because you deserve it. (Seriously. If only we lived close enough. Your kids are the cutest ones I ever met via a blog!)
Love this..just read another thankful thursday post about VBS. I can relate, it is always one of my face times of the year
Hey! I just had a quick question about your site. If you could get back to me when its convenient that would be great!
