Single Digit Sunday Run

It was in the single digits (the coldest I've ever run in) yesterday when I headed out for my run, so I decided to bundle up in mittens I don't normally wear. (I am a glove person when running.) I am sure I looked like a dork but hey at least my fingers were nice and toasty.  It was absolutely beautiful outside. The sun shining on God's glorious frozen creation.  I just took my time on the ice and snow packed roads and soaked it all in.

My other favorite fashion accessory this Winter has been my yaktrax.  These things are amazing and allow me the ability to get outside for my runs rather than the treadmill. I am thankful that if absolutely necessary I can get on my treadmill for a run, but I would rather head outside any day in almost any kind of weather.

It is a choice.

No matter what Lord, I can and I will sing Hallelujah.

Pacifier, Pacifier...Oh How Caleb LOVES You!!

Can we say slight pacifier addiction???  Okay, so he really
doesn't walk around with two pipes in his mouth but on
occasion he'll be silly and pop two in at a time.

Well, maybe he does have a small pipe addiction??!!
Dipping it in ice cream~OH MY!!!!

Of course he doesn't have any encouragement
from his big brothers!!

It will not be a  fun time when the pacifiers have to go away.
Caleb may just turn into a bear for a few weeks....
Not sure when that is going to happen, I'm not ready
for the bear!!!

How many times have I sat down, started to type something and then erased it.  I just can't get the words from my heart, to my head, to my fingertips.

Oh God, these past few weeks and months have been hard. Through it all I am learning Lord to love you deeper than I ever have before. What an amazing experience the journey has been! Thank you for letting me run home to you.
