Our trip to Wisconsin

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

The weekend before Easter my mom came over to our house in Minnesota...I love having her here. We always do fun things, like bake and walk and eat and shop. Plus she's always so helpful:) It's always a little sad when she goes home but this year I was able to go with her!! We left on Tuesday morning and headed back to Appleton because I was off of work for a week for spring break. So I was able to spend almost an entire week with my family and those three little rascals...which doesn't happen that often, or ever! Alex was set to head over on Friday for Easter weekend so I went to the doctor with the rascals, played in the yard, rode bikes, played hoops, pulled wallpaper down, shopped for my mom's house, was a busy week and oh so enjoyable. Then we celebrated Easter with the fam and Grandma and Grandpa and that was really fun! Unfortunately while I was back we found out Alex's uncle Kurt passed away. So sad:( So we made arrangements to head to Milwaukee for the wake on Easter Monday. Alex and I decided it might be fun to spend the day in Milwaukee, walking, chatting...a date day! Well who knew, Milwaukee would be 35 and windy with intermittent snow flurries. Not the day we were expecting and Saz's, the one place we wanted to go, was well, CLOSED on Mondays. Despite the gloom, we managed to have a great day complete with custard from Kopp's. Now I'm looking forward to our next chance to rediscover day:)

Tenebrae...latin for of my favorite worship services of the year.  As we near Easter, and continue reflecting on the death and resurrection of Christ, the joy and sorrow it brings, and the way it makes my heart rejoice in thanksgiving is all consuming.  I have a Savior...Jesus Christ...who has been my I glory in my redeemer!

Tonight I am looking forward to the tenebrae service at the church I grew up in...all the while reflecting on the selfless, perfect sacrifice of my Savior, entrusting to me eternal life and the forgiveness of the cross.
Happy Good Friday!

Humpty dumpty sat on the wall of Jericho

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

probably because i am more black and white than gray all over, it's very difficult for me to take a stand on more gray area topics. such as: -how much tv is too much? -where should we spend most of our time and with whom? -is this movie okay? -what kind of music should we listen to? -should we eat organic? -what kind of beef should we buy? -how green should we be? -should we paint the walls blue or green? -homeschool or public school (note: we do not have children yet!!) i think by now you get what i mean. my mind is daily bogged down by questions that remain unanswered and in all truth will probably not be all that important at the end of the day. i'm like humpty dumpty up there on the wall, not knowing what to do. i need joshua's army to come and rescue me with the blasts of the trumpet, to crumble the wall before i fall and my pieces are unable to be pieced together. i think my black and white mentality makes this even more difficult, because one way has to be the best. wow, that is so wrong. one way will be the best, but it will be what is best for our family:) can you help me...what are some ways you tackle the they fall to the wayside? do you take a stand? or do you prioritize what is most important? i think the latter may be the best way. it's so overwhelming.
