A post on the lighter side! The floor re-finishing project has left the house a wreck for a couple of weeks. I really struggle sometimes to conquer the "tyranny of the urgent"...the desire to stop everything and battle the current mess, for instance. I am so tempted to even stop doing schoolwork in order to put the house in order. I've been trying to resist the temptation, and to remind myself that I want to "make the days count". So the house is still a mess. But on Sunday afternoon I played. I played with the kids, and I played with my camera. I played "Set" (a card game), jumped on the trampoline, "ooohed" and "aaahed" over frogs and tadpoles caught in the creek, and captured a lot of it on film. And I can honestly say that the messy house felt a little less...disturbing. God really does change hearts, and I am overwhelmed at His capacity to do new things in me. :)
So here's some photographic evidence of the day. I know, I know; I'm not in any of the pictures. Next time I'll turn the camera over to Rebekah while I'm jumping on the trampoline.
