Mud Out

At the conclusion of our Creation Introduction in homeschooling I chose instead of starting into the remaining of our year-long session, to have a break day. We had a late night going with Daddy to our old campus ministry where he got the privilege of preaching the night prior. And we decided as a treat to attend the social event afterward, spoiling the kiddos with hot chocolate and a brownie. Consequently, our next morning started a bit slower. And since it was a Friday and a bath day we took a dive…. into the mud.

Now I’m not one to be thrilled about mud on the carpet, in hair, on your nice clothes, BUT I find myself overcoming my own “eww dirt” adultness and letting the kids be dirty kids…. on bath days… before bath.Β  πŸ˜‰

Needless to say, while the babies took their much-desired morning naps, the big girls experienced the mud… to the full.

Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.

    1. I know, I squirm a little at the oogies when I look at the pictures, but with a little planning the mess was easily carried to the tub from the back door and deposited in the readied washer. It was a bit surprising how quickly the mess was gone. And those play clothes were returned to the drawer later that afternoon. It’s by all means not a daily experience, but certainly a good repeat button a few times when I can overcome my “let’s stay somewhat clean” adultness. πŸ˜‰
