I am reminded…..

July 26, 2012

I am reminded when I hear thunder outside this morning:: That You respond to our worship.

I am reminded that I do have resources in Nashville for August 4th, hmmmm:: Because Songs of Water is amazing to watch in person.  Thrilling actually….and we do have that RV.


I am reminded when I see this little Squish sitting on my counter gnawing on her thumb::  You love her the same as me… just as she is…no striving… just being her and all of her thumb chewing as she drifts into sleep…You love her …You love me….It is that easy.

I am reminded while I serve stacks of egg sandwiches:: some Canadians have the most  absolutely adorable Scottishesque accents…and that most everyone loves egg sandwiches on everything bagels…except vegans.

I am reminded as Canadians bustle out the door into this East Coast heat::  He is telling everyone to worship…for hours…there are whole Summits on it….   Some are doing 30 days of it!!!  and us with our little 3 hours.

I am reminded as we study the Olympics::  People can put their differences aside and come together.

I am reminded as we collect music for an outreach we have been asked to do music for:: Third world countries are in every first world country.

I am reminded my husband is the most amazing musician:: When he doesn’t flinch at having to play 3 hours at the Saturday morning outreach and 3 more hours at the Saturday night PFW… that’s 6 hours on Saturday…sheesh.

I am reminded as my son makes his new movie:: If your parents believe in you…you can do anything.

I am reminded as I listen to the soundtrack of his new movie:: Twelve year old boys are pretty amazing at getting stuff done.


I am reminded as I drive to Costco three times in one week::  We are provided for at each step…including with the Costco greeter who always tells me God is blessing me….and she is right, and I receive it!

I am reminded as I help my Mer with her spelling::  I don’t know everything…and lightning doesn’t have an “e” in it, lol…who knew?

I am reminded as I look at the calendar:: It is my baby brother’s birthday…and I miss him…and   I hope he comes to visit soon.

I am reminded time and time again in the last week::  I really don’t know what to do when someone compliments me…I just know enough to not  deflect it…. try and receive.


I am reminded with peaches all over the counter::  You can have peach frozen yogurt for breakfast!

I am reminded as I freeze 20lbs of blueberries:: The end of the season is near and blueberry muffins go well with frozen yogurt for breakfast.

I am reminded as I snip pots of herbs:: Good pesto is about 5mins away….and even devout raw vegans will eat fresh pesto.


I am reminded as my new cello book arrives in the mail:: I think I will just stick to Ode to Joy (maybe much to my family’s dismay), because the book looks really hard… but I am determined….Thanks again Elisa, you have changed my life and my every day!

      Yeah we checked we can’t go either… but tell your friends…it is a very entertaining concert with awesome musicians…
      I wouldn’t miss it if I was in town…like I said, even all my kids sat through it completely entranced.
