Love them. Love worship. Love Praise and Worship music. Love sitting next to my husband hand in hand as we learn more about our God.
But, getting to the church usually entails frantic, frustrated and furious (yep, just keeping it real) adults and sometimes kids too.
As I said to Rex this morning after dropping the last child off in his class, "I feel like I've ran a marathon"
so, I am definitely enjoying the new twist on Sunday afternoon's in our home since Anna came into our lives. Instead of a big lunch out, and then grabbing whatever in the evening- we've flip-flopped. We're grabbing a sandwich or whatever after church for lunch and coming home. And, I'm actually cooking the Sunday dinners I hear others talk about, and have always been a little jealous of.
Right now- my house is calm and relaxed. - It's true.. pick your jaw up off the floor.
Shayne and Anna are watching a movie on ABC Family- in my living room. I hear laughter. I like seeing so much of my son's face. I like Anna's face too.
Elijah & Isaiah are napping. I hear nothing. I like hearing nothing from their room during nap time.
Rex just woke up from a nap. I like Rex napping- makes him happy- happy Rex = happy me.
I have been able to pay bills on-line, pick up some miscellaneous toys and books, do a load of laundry, clean off my kitchen counters and am actually multi-tasking now as I blog and cook Sunday dinner.
After dinner- everyone in the house, except for this momma is heading back to church- InsideOut youth group, Cubbies & Sparks. Sunday night is my "alone time"
Simplicity is good.
