Posey is such a cute name :)

Dear sweet & adorable hubby,

I’m in love with Posey. Okay, maybe not LOVE, but I like her a whole-whole lot. I know it's asking a lot but just keep reading...

I promise if I got her, I would take really good care of her. I’d even let other people come over and see her.

I’ll pay lots of attention to her. I’ll even sit by her on the floor next to her while I watch TV or read.

I’ll clean her every single week, and she won’t shed!

And if she does shed just a tiny bit, it will blend in with the carpet, so it’s okay.

She won’t get any bigger than she already is, so she won’t outgrow our small home.

I know her fee of $599 is a little out of our price range, but I really think she’s exactly what we’re looking for, so if you’d please consider letting me get her, I’d really appreciate it!

Love,

Your dear, loving, kind, lonely-without-Posey wife


P.S. I think if you see her you’ll love her too, so here’s a few pictures! The first one is just her, and the second is a pic of her in her foster home.

Change of Heart

My friend Sarah & I have been teaching this song to the Kid’s Choir for the last 2 weeks. It’s a song I’ve known for a very long time, so it’s very easy for me to just sing it without paying attention to the lyrics. It’s been stuck in my head all day today for some reason.

Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart oh God
May I be like You
You are the potter
I am the clay
Mold me and make me
This is what I pray
Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart oh God
May I be like You.

I don’t know how many times I’ve prayed these words before, but my problem is actually allowing God to “mold me” and “change my heart.” Honestly, I’m very stubborn. I don't like change. I don’t like to be pulled out of my comfort zone, and which is often what is needed when I need a serious change of heart. I grow content in my hard-heartedness. I get used to my lack of spiritual growth and just settle for what I have, instead of longing for what I could have.

Unfortunately I don’t have a “But look how far I’ve come” story…yet. This was just something I’ve been thinking about today at work. But, God put this song on my heart for a reason and I’d be a fool (or as Ali and I like to say when we want to sound cool, a foo) to ignore it. Also, this gives me some accountability – which I know I need.

Just thought I’d share :)

Isaiah 64:8

But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Question: A Bad Day + __________ = A Good Day


Any guesses?


No?


Fine, I'll just give you the answer!

















Good thing I don't have a lot of bad days...because I'd surely weigh 300 lbs by now.


Well, that or I'd sweat grease and saturated fat.
