I am thinking…
So, last post, I wrote that I was curious about what my hubby had planned for date night. He definitely delivered.
He created an AWESOME “getaway” with sheets and blankets and pillows. He made an elaborate tent with candlelight (it was safe, I promise) and we had a movie night. We needed an at-home FREE date, so this was PERFECT.
For my turn, I had one of the kids deliver this to hubby:
But then, in a duck and fire move, I accidentally hit him in the eye. Almost blinding your husband puts a bit of a damper on the evening. So, in an effort to be a little safer and low-key (no more blinding), I brought out the game RISK that I’d bought to surprise him. We had a lovely evening of taking over the world and of course, I let him win he won.
Also… a public safety announcement: If you try this date… wear sunglasses.
I am thankful…

In the kitchen…
I am reading…
Hubby and I are reading Kingdom Man and Kingdom Woman by Tony Evans together. –Only a couple of chapters in on each, but already the sort of book that makes me want to sit and read with highlighter in hand!
Also, this (still):
We/I am learning…
We’re studying rainforests and S.America, still. I officially have 1st and 3rd graders here, now!
Around the house…
Dreaming up ideas for our master bedroom… to turn it into a lovely retreat instead of a dark cave
After being told that a person needs a specific call to missions, “Nik Ripken” says, “Well, it appears to me that you all have created a ‘call’ to missions that allows people to be disobedient to what Jesus has already commanded all of us to do. ” (Insanity of God)
“God may have to give instructions about the location — the WHERE. But there is nothing to negotiate about the command to go – God has already made our primary task perfectly clear. ” (Insanity Of God)
