This is what we have been spending our time on since January. This is our fifth year of being involved in our Easter play at church. The first 3 years my husband played the role of Jesus and the last two he has directed it. We, as a family, have put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into the play. But nothing compared to what Jesus did. It is amazing how this play changes lives. The cast and crew as well as people seeing the life of Christ for the first time.
My Jesus changed my life.... all for good. His story is so amazing. I love to see it played out over and over again. My kids, husband and I have lived the bible for 3 months. We know the scripture inside and out and we still see amazing new truths. God is AWESOME! His blood has covered me, how about you? Do you know my Jesus? He died to meet you...

I love this shirt!!!! This poor man was just standing in the line for the tea cups. He does not even know that I took his picture or that I love his shirt. Why do I like it? Because of the words on the back. The Lord has been showing me in so many ways how busyness can be a tool from satan to take your eyes off of Jesus. I have been busy for awhile now and I see how the Lord is trying to get my attention. I need to take action and SLOW down. I have heard this acronym before BUSY-being under satan's yoke.
Anyway, this is what his shirt says: God is calling you to a passionate relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency is not working harder at a list of do's and don'ts it is falling in love with God.
How I took this is that works will get you no where. Yes, without works faith is dead but if we are working to please man or not have enough time alone at His feet to know who we are serving than we are not really serving Jesus. Am I making sense? Anyway, it was way clear to me. I hope it makes sense to you all.
God is awesome and working in mighty ways. I love how Jesus speaks through people and how He uses them even when they don't even know He is using them. I hope Jesus uses me like that.

I am finally able to post without feeling behind. That seems to be a theme in my life. Always behind.... Is it home schooling? Is it busyness? Who knows? Maybe it is being a mommy. We have been very busy lately....Here is my latest picture... my girlie with her friend on the tea cups at Disneyland. Oh, there is my boy too!!

These pics are from the week... In the first, these are of the worm that HAD to be dissected for science. I did have to bow out of this and let Dad take over. I just don't have the stomach! I did manage to slide in the room to snap a couple of pics. The next, we are giving my boy a "purity ring" at the end of a purity conference at church. I got a little teary eyed at how quick he has grown up. I can remember so vividly bringing my sweet boy home from the hospital. It seems like yesterday. The last, is a picture of spring. Yes, it is spring in our area.....

Here, is again, an attempt to catch up on the 365 pictures. I love the idea and I am forever taking pictures, it just seems difficult for me to sit down and upload and then post. Maybe I will get the hang of this thing soon. I do seem to have an eye more than before....
Can you tell what we did this last week?
I know, it is the white stuff that Tracy hates... :)

My girlie girl is not afraid to get messy. In science we had to dissect an owl pellet. No, it is not poop. It is owl throw up! Yes, I know that is disgusting, but it can be very educational, right? Well, she had no problem with it. At first, it was all about the gloves and after a few minutes the gloves came off and she dug in. Not afraid to touch any of it. Not like her mom that was a little nauseated. We had a great school day.... lots of learning and a lot of laughing at mommy.
