Caught and Cake Pops

I caught Jimmy and Niva snuggling in Sadie’s rocking chair. They look adorably guilty, don’t they?

I’m happy to report that Sadie’s fever went down! 

You know what I think helped? Cake pops. It’s good medicine to go on a car + coffee and cake pop date 😉 Oh, and we can’t forget milk. That helps too, right?

We went on a family walk the other night and the fresh air felt fantastic. We kept it short because it was pretty cold, but Sadie thought it was neat to be in her stroller in her footie pajamas.

I think I’m battling a sinus infection, but I’ll survive. I always seem to get them when I get sick so I know the drill and what to expect 🤷🏼‍♀️

I was so out of it the other morning that I just sipped coffee and stared off into space instead of reading my Bible like I usually do. So, my daily Bible study time happened on the couch during Sadie’s nap.

Here’s what I’m learning from Hebrews 4:12:

  • The Word of God is living. The enduring nature of it is great proof of its reliability.
  • Only 0.5% of books are in demand seven years after their publication and books are rarely reprinted after 25 years. The Bible? It’s the best selling book of all time!
  • The Word of God is living because it’s timeless, tested, and true. It’s relevant, applicable to people in the past, and those in the present. It transcends culture, race, gender, occupation, and social and economic status. 
  • We can always learn something new from The Word, no matter how many times we read it. 
  • The Word is powerful and sharper than a double-edged sword; it can cut in both ways by encouraging or condemning. It’s also a weapon against the devil. 
  • God’s Word is unchanging. We may try to dance around difficult scriptures, but the Lord stands firm on what He has proclaimed. It is up to us to accept the Bible, not change it. 

Okay, I better get going. Sadie is waking up and it’s time to start our day! 

Have you ever had a cake pop?

Happy New Year! My prayer is that this year is great for each and every person visiting this little corner of the internet. If you have any prayer requests, leave them in the comments or email me. I would love to be praying for you this year ❤

Here’s what’s current in my life this month!

Current mood Content. I’m finding so much joy in the place God has me at in life right now.

Current food Chocolate pancakes. Just had a few for breakfast before sitting down to write this post.

Current excitement My brother and sister are both having their second child this year. I cannot wait to meet the new family members ❤

Current fun We filmed a vlog the other day! It includes homeschool, cooking, cleaning, Jimmy hoarding chocolate (LOL) and more. Just a normal day at our zoo 😉

Current books This midwifery memoir, this guide on essential oils, and this Bible study on Hebrews. Sadie is loving Mittens at School and God, You Make Me Feel Special.

Current need New boots. I have a pair of riding boots that are on their last leg. Does anyone have recommendations for where to get a pair of boots at a decent price?!

Current beauty product Lip balm. This season has me stocking my purse, bathroom, and car with a tube so I’m always prepared!

Current cuteness Niva sleeping in our yard. If there’s snow on the ground, she wants to be outside. She often just curls up and does the Siberian swirl (where she uses her tail to keep her nose warm) and sleeps. So cute!

Current baked good Corn bread has been hitting the spot lately.

Current drink Coffee-wise, we’re working our way through a bag of this and my favorite non-coffee drink of the moment is orange juice.

Current craving I really want to go to the National Aviary here in Pittsburgh. I think it will be opening back up soon, so hopefully Jimmy, Sadie, and I can find a day to visit. Sadie was only a few months old the last time we went and I think she would really enjoy it now!

Current fun We went to our church on New Year’s Eve for a fellowship and it was a blast. The perfect way to end 2020.

Tell me something current in your life!
