Whew, that was a close one! :)

The other day while Russell, Bethany and I were all playing, Bethany crawled into my lap and started to put her fingers in my mouth. I told her "no no", but she persisted. After several minutes of this, I was beginning to get extremely annoyed that she wanted her fingers in my mouth, so I put her down and began to get up when Russell came and said...

"Mom, she was just trying to get that out of your mouth."

"What thing out of my mouth?" I replied.

"THAT!!" He shouts pointing to my mouth.

"Describe what 'THAT' is!" I say

"That BIG brown thing on your front tooth." he says

So I go to the mirror and look and sure enough I have food stuck in my teeth and Bethany was trying to pick it out. Now I'm not sure if she was hungry or if she was already trying to protect my vanity, but none the less I am happy she saved me from a potentially embarassing situation! :)

The Desert

A few months ago I was talking to my cousin Faith about seasons that God takes us through, and that no matter how hard we try we can not avoid a season. Right now I am in a desert season. Everywhere I turn heartache abounds. I desperately want out of this season, yet I know from past failures that when I try to escape it only compounds the problem. Right now I am memorizing Psalm 40 and I love the first verse. It says:

I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.

I will wait patiently for the next season to come, even though I am really struggling to do so. I will wait because I know that God will see me through because, as my cousin Faith says, He is kind.

Love to you all,
