There has been an atmosphere of charged anticipation in our home of late. We are on the brink of change, but it's good change. God is working for us in an area we have been praying about for years, and it's exciting to watch how He unfolds His plans. I can't disclose it all at this time, but when it all works itself out, you will get one loaded blog post!
There really is no shortage of blog subject material around here, as my 3 children supply me with plenty of it. The only shortage is time and opportunity to sit down and put fingers to keys. When I blog, I like to have quiet, uninterrupted time, and that, my friends, is a precious commodity.
I will leave you with a moment from last week, that is definitely one I do not want to soon forget. Elijah's latest "dream" has been to start his own pet business. He dreams big, that one. One evening a couple of weeks ago, he drug his aquairium of "pets", which consisted of snails and centipedes, to the front yard and parked it on a TV tray/table. He came back inside an annouced, "I'm tired of waiting, so I'm starting my pet business today!" So if you were to drive by our house, this is what you would have seen:
This was his expression after about 5 vehicles passed by without stopping. I felt sorry for him and sneaked a few phone calls to a couple of neighbors, who thought it was hilarious and was happy to give him a quarter for a critter. Of course, they really appreciated him taking care of their snails for them, since they didn't really have a place to properly care for one. He wound up making about $2.50 when it was all said and done! Isn't he adorable?
