"E happy?"

That’s what Acadia asks me sometimes. She loves to point out when people are happy, especially when she herself is happy. If the answer is no, she’ll say in a wise two-year-old way, “E map,” which means “you need a nap.” Usually she’s right.

Reading this post – Walking Circumspectly: Remembering to Be Sweet – caused me to think about how often I don’t act happy, like what I do as a wife and a mother is a burden. I don’t want to have that attitude, and mostly I don’t feel that way. But I think I’m kind of in the habit of sighing and groaning when there’s a mess, or there’s a diaper that needs to be changed just as we’re leaving the house, or my four-year-old wakes us up with a bad dream at 3:00 in the morning.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
