Well, I am inching closer and closer to what will hopefully be my last surgery "post-triplets." Seth asked me if the doctor was going to "replace my batteries." Hmmm...batteries, now that is a novel idea. Wouldn't that be nice? Tired of changing wet sheets; go get some more batteries. Filled up your last juice cup of the day; go get some more batteries. If only it were that easy in "mommy world" where the dishes pile up, the juice cups don't fill themselves, and you wake up in what feels like an incubator of sweaty toddlers. And speaking of that...

Today, I am in the mud-hole. I am not sure how I got here, but I am here. Bathing myself in the mud of self pity. I've smeared it all over, trust me. And the reason I am here, you ask? Well although I would like to blame the girl next door. Although I would love to shout it from the rooftop that I was mistreated, spied on, and talked about...I cannot. Because the truth of the matter is that I am here because I thought a second too long on what the enemy wanted me to think about. And to top it all off, I talked with the horse, the sheep, and the cow about the other pig I was mad at. And of course they all agreed that I was right. I ate the hook. Took the bait. I was swiped by Swiper and I promise it just did not happen overnight. Instead of wallowing when things don't go your way; maybe we would be best served by following a few simple truths.
1. Let the Lord help us dwell on what is pure, lovely, and right.
2. Don't talk with the other animals in the barn about the matter.
2. Remember that even when you take a step back, God is comitted to walking you forward.
3. Pray in the calm, not just the storm.
5. Pray for your enemies, not just for yourself.
6. Confess your sins so as to not give Satan a foothold.

Most girls dream of their fairy-tale wedding. Swans waddling around the tulip border, lace, flowers, and a to die for groom. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, here is one scandalous story you will never forget. Wisked away from her family to marry a man named Er, this girl's honeymoon would be no fairy-tale. Er was an evil man, not exactly the GQ guy a girl dreams of. Er was so wicked actually that the Lord puts him to death. Grab a cup of coffee it gets better.

Winnie the pooh said it best: "Think, think, think." I have a lot of decisions to make over the next few months. Important decisions that might very well alter my career and our families focus. While prayerfully considering these decisions, God keeps bringing my mind back to the story of Noah.
A wicked generation.
A regretful God.
One man found favor in His eyes.
Not a cloud in the sky.
A plan to save.
Gopher wood would become an ark.
Designed from the mouth of the Lord.
