All of it started with the baby oatmeal this morning...
I made it a little bit too watery but I was determined to use it for Jeru. So I take it over to her to start feeding her and she takes a few bites and then decides to play with the bowl and I try to prevent the watery oatmeal from spilling over from her playing with it. Well you guessed it... by us doing differing things with the bowl we made it flip off of the high chair tray and onto the floor with a big splat and watery oatmeal goes up the bathroom door that is right next to our dining room! I think wow what a morning! So I leave the bowl down on the floor a few minutes and proceed to feed her some mushy apples.

Everything is fine until I hear water gushing! Yes, gushing! Our washer from time to time decides to not let the water go out of the pipe when it is leaving the washer because I guess the pipe gets frozen in the winter. I think one time when I washed one of Simba’s blankets in the washer a piece or something came out and went into the pipe because ever since then we have been having this gushing problem at various times! So I run to the washer and stop it and see that a lot of water has gotten onto the floor... I just leave it and go back to feeding Jeru. She is just watching all of my antics with an open mouth. :)

So I say a little prayer and thank the Lord for the morning before I let it ruin it and just have to find humor in all of this. Thought I would just share it with you. I don’t know if anyone is reading this blog but I guess it is just a good journaling outlet for me. :) Have a blessed day...

God is good through it all and I must thank him for the washer that we have to wash clothes... in Kenya they spend about all morning just washing their clothes by hand. Thank you Lord for the food that I generously get to eat and feed Jeru and the family with because David told me in Kenya there were some families that they met during the missions trip that only eat once or twice a week! This keeps coming back to me and makes me want to do something about it! What step can I take dear Lord. I thank you for being my Father and friend Lord... guide me throughout the day to be purposeful and joyful!

Feeling pretty blessed.
