This is the day that the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

That's how I feel as I start this beautiful Tuesday. I woke up early to start my day. I'm already drinking my coffee. I have several things to look forward to today and this week:

1. Andrew had a fantastic school day yesterday. Again, I'm amazed at how well "school" is going. That strong willed boy is turning into a brilliant young man. A common compliment you would hear at my house (yep, even from or directed at the baby) is, "you're a genius." I'm very thankful for my group of home school friends who encourage me daily.

2. Today is a busy day. I am dying to go to Target, but we'll see if that happens. I have a limited time to be out and about before nap time, and things just seems far away around here. Target is our closest store so it is much more attainable. I sadly never get to JC Penney's or Kohl's anymore - too far away!

3. I don't have to fix dinner again until Thursday. We are still munching on our favorite leftovers from the weekend, and tomorrow is church dinner night - and friend chicken at that - yum!

4. One of my bestest friends in the whole world is coming to visit me tomorrow!!!

5. We are going on a school field trip to Rainforest Cafe at Disney to learn about the tropical rain forest and have a family style buffet!

6. Andrew has his first flag football game on Saturday!

7. I am going to another one of my bestest friends homes tonight!

8. Mat has a conference he has to attend at the beach so we are all heading to Treasure Island for a relaxing vaca...and friends are coming too!

Life is so good... and not because of all the awesome things we get to DO but because of who God is. God is so amazing! I am daily thankful that Christ is a part of my daily life. I couldn't get through a day without HIS amazing peace, guidance and comfort.

Again, this is the day that the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!


  1. :) Candra, I'm pretty sure you're the only one who reads this. I read your blog too. I'm still rejoicing, but I'm also interested in selling Lizzy to a band of gypsies. Know of any? Haha
