About Today

It's Good Friday, the trash bill is due, Kindergarten registration is today for Little pup, I'm wondering if the banks are open today, we need to check into refinancing our home, I need to run to the grocery store and buy stuff for the boys' Easter baskets, Big pup is under the impression that he's getting a toy truck, I think he's confusing the Easter bunny with Santa Claus, I need to buy some bedding for Little pup's new big boy bed, he wants something with fish on it, I don't, let's see....what else...oh, yeah, I'm fasting today. But my temptation is nothing compared to His.

Keep your eyes on Jesus,
our leader and instructor.
He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross
because of the joy he knew would be his afterwards;
and now he sits in the place of honor
by the throne of God.
If you want to keep
from becoming fainthearted and weary,
think about his patience
as sinful men did such terrible things to him.

After all,
you have never yet struggled against sin and temptation
until you sweat

--Hebrews 12:2-4

  4. Wonderful post for a very important day and season.

  5. I WISH I COULD SAY SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT JESUS...i feel depressed that i haven't been a mormon bishop, on the high counsil, that i haven'st invented anything, that my wife isn'st proud of me and look what the savior did for everyone,,, i feel like a loser or at least lost

  6. Hi, Ali! Thanks for the comment- I highly recommend the book if your 7 yr old is that picky!! I don't have any children but it's a great way to get more veggies in my OWN diet as well! The recipes look really easy and delicious. (P.S. I love your chickpea recipe- I'm going to try it! I have a can at home, and I'm sick of just making hummus with them. Great idea!)

  7. Hi Ali!
    This made me go "Whoa!"
    How could I forget today was Good Friday?

    Long time no blog! Thanks for visiting and I've been a very bad blogger and have not been up on my fave mom blogs lately.
    Have a nice EAster with the pups!
