“There is a fullness of atoning efficacy in His blood,
for ‘the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin.’
There is a fullness of justifying righteousness in His life,
for ‘there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.’
…There is a fullness of blessings of every sort and shape;
a fullness of grace to pardon,
of grace to regenerate,
of grace to sanctify,
of grace to preserve,
and of grace to perfect.
…Oh, what a fullness must this be of which all receive!
…Come, believer, and get all thy need supplied;
ask largely, and thou shalt receive largely,
for this ‘fullness’ is inexhaustible,
and is treasured up where all the needy may reach it…”

Charles Spurgeon
Morning & Evening


Is it wrong to cater to your child’s sense of vanity in order to get things done?
An immediate example would be: propping up a mirror on the floor to entertain Julia so I could write this post. 🙂
She is enamored with herself. 
Just like the rest of us, I suppose.

It’s raining again.
And Julia is tearing up my house.
So we took a trip to Target and JoAnn Fabrics.
I am attempting to make an Easter dress for Jules.
If it turns out well, you will se a post forthcoming.
If it turns out like the shirt Denise made Theo on The Cosby Show,
(skip to minute 5:40) 
then there will be no mention of this topic ever again. 🙂
Ok, I gotta run.  My child just learned how to pull herself up on the couch and has pillaged my craft supply.
I leave you with some rainy day pics from the loft,
which is not finished yet…
But it’s good enough to do crafts in!!
Happy Wednesday.

Rain, Rain
Again, Again

So we get all dressed up to go nowhere,
Snap a few photos to prove it,
then spend the day napping and reading Gone with the Wind.
We keep the hazelnut candle burning all day,
the curtains wide open for what we like to call, “rain mood lighting,”
and we drink tea and apple cider.

Because it’s that sort of day.

Later I will make Sweet & Sour chicken (yum!) and perhaps some Pumpkin bread.

I love Rainy Thursdays.

and yes for those of you wondering, i’ve been reading Gone with the Wind for about 5 years now.  my life keeps getting interrupted…ha.
