Some days are like this and we'll just have to keep pressing ahead even when it seems dark (#pullinga minorleaguecliffyoung. I know there are a zillion harder battles in the world than this, but it did still felt like a hard day for me, still a "cliff young" of the everyday motherly kind. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the super great post from Ann last week). For me, it' would be the perfect day for a hot bath to soak in the promises that Christ is with me, He will redeem, He is true and good and He is my High King and He loves me…. but I'll do all that in a long shower instead. We don't have a bath tub I can fit in! I hardly ever notice that except that today I wish we had a bath. I am praying for 2 toilets and a bathtub in our new place (we're moving early April. We have 2 full bathrooms now but it's not so easy to find an apt like this in our new city.)
In the morning, we're leaving long before sunup on a jet plane bound for Hong Kong to renew some soon-expiring passports. Thanks to a sweet flight deal and a very sweet retreat center, we're getting to make a vacation of it and we are all so very much looking forward to it! Oh for grace to go out with joy and be led forth in peace tomorrow morning….
And now for a few very random bits of life. (And a note about today's crab-fest: These pics are prettier than any I could have taken today! Thank you Lord for proof when I need to remind myself that crabby days aren't all day every day.)
|Sunday afternoon play time together.|
(She's standing right about on the spot where she first came into our world. Precious place.)

Now… off to pack! More from Hong Kong or maybe once we're home...
