Perfect Day

Today was just about the most perfect day I have had in a long time! Each day since the Lord healed and delivered me has been so awesome and fun. Today it was in the 80s and sunny. The pool was opened this week and we love to hang out by the pool together. When I got sick last summer our pool days were almost non-existent.
Before we enjoyed the pool, we worked hard in the garden. We weeded, planted and watered. I planted my patio pots. The above is a picture of our cabbage garden. Doesn't it look awesome?

These are my new favorite color mini-petunias. They are so pretty and cheery. Different from the standard colors.

Big brother, Joshua, age 18 and his little buddy Elijah, age 2. They are so close. This is the same brother who carries him on his back while doing kitchen chores. I love having a big family and I so enjoy the dynamics in all the different relationships.

I am so thankful for what the Lord has done in me. I praise HIM and glorify HIM! It is amazing to me that just a few weeks ago I was pretty much in bed most of the day with the children needing to be cared for by others. I have been mothering, cooking, cleaning, organizing, gardening, shopping, playing, dancing, SMILING, wife-ing ;-) I even got to hang laundry on the line today. Oh, and I didn't even take a nap today, something I have needed to do for about 10 years! God is so amazingly faithful. I still can't help but want to shout and sing. Woe be it to the person that asks how I am doing these days. They do not know what they are in for with my answer! I tend to bubble over all over them with praises to our Father.
Praise Him with me, won't you?

O SING to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things . . .
(Ps. 98:1)

I LOVE THIS!!! I can almost see you out, really!!! And I actually thought about your "nap time" and wondered if you still needed them. It was a beautiful day, wasn't it? I think if it had been raining and bitterly cold, it would have been just as lovely in your eyes. Rejoicing with you and yours over the awesome power of our God.
