Sick, sick, sick!

Well, Isabel is sick . . . . . poor little girl. She has been throwing up and has diarrhea and just wants to lay around. Now she has started running a fever so we are trying to watch her and just keep her comfortable. Its so awful to watch them not feeling well, she just wants her mommy and daddy to sit with her and that's about all that we can do. Just pray that she gets to feeling better and is able to sleep at night, it seems that rest is usually the best medicine.

Hopefully tomorrow will bring a happier little girl who feels much better and is able to eat!

Mardi Gras!

Well, we did it, we took Isabel to her first Mardi Gras parade. Let me first say that Scott and I have never been "Mardi Gras people", we're just not in to the whole carnival "thing" and have never, in 8 years of marriage, been to a parade. But, since we just live 2 blocks from the parade route downtown, we decided it might be fun and interesting for Isabel to experience all the sights and sounds, besides, she LOVES to stroll and it was a beautiful day. So, we set off for the parade with the understanding that we would turn around and head back home at the first sight of "rowdiness". After all, there is this thing called spiritual warfare and we have to do our best as Isabel's parents to protect her from the ugliness in the world for as long as we can. Anyhoo, she had a fun time watching the people and the floats and I think she made her daddy's day when she covered her ears at the loud music . . . . it was funny!

Other than that, we had a fairly calm weekend. Our church services were great, several decisions were made and we started the Fireproof Study in our Sunday School class. If you haven't seen the movie, you should, its really great and has some serious marriage counseling in it!! This upcoming weekend is our church's revival and we are looking forward to that too!

BTW, the diet thing is not going so well . . . . . I have little to no will power! We'll see how it goes!

Below are some sites that you should check out . . . . . these families really need our prayer!

Thanks for reading,

Diet!! Ohhhh, don't you hate the word?? I do!! I've decided to start a new diet and I'm going to use my blog as inspiration and motivation. Each Friday, I will post the previous week's loss, if any. Obviously, I'm not going to post my weight but I'm thinking that if I have to "report" any gain or loss, I'll be a little more inclined to try, you know what I mean?? So, we'll see where we are next Friday . . . . . . and we'll see how long this lasts. I'll let you know when and IF I meet my goal.

BTW, I've posted a pic of my sweet family!!

Its finally Friday!!

Happy Friday to you! Don't you just love Fridays? I think its my favorite day of the week, I mean, we get to sleep in tomorrow and have breakfast and watch cartoons with Isabel . . . . . what more could you ask for? And yes, I know, Satrudays are great but once it gets here, then we're on the downhill slope and the weekend is almost over. Fridays are just the beginning!! Much like a vacation, half the fun is in the planning, preparation and anticipation of all that you are about to experience, right? I guess the same could be said about our Christian walk. Shouldn't we be excited as we prepare for and anticipate the arrival of Christ? Are we ready? Wow!

Anyhoo, I am thrilled that Friday is here and I wish you all a safe and fun-filled weekend!!
