As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Sunday Snapshots: In the Pink Room

On most Sunday afternoons, the children play downstairs, or, weather permitting, outside.  The weather certainly did not permit on this scorching day.  Instead, Bekah hosted playtime in her upstairs bedroom this afternoon.  It was a thrill for everyone to be permitted to play upstairs!  

First Bekah and Maddie decided to play with their American Girl dolls and horses.  Then Gavin and Owen went up to play with the big box of Legos that are under Bekah's bed.  Then Ben went up to join the crowd.  And Alaine, not wishing to be left out of the party, asked to go "stairs" and up she went to play with the Fisher Price doll house most of the afternoon.  

I suppose everyone likes a change now and then.

Remember a few weeks back when I told you about the hip surgery video?  Well, today's activities included another medical element.  We got out the blood pressure monitor and measured everyone's blood pressure.  Yes, we're weird that way.

(Would you think we were even more weird if I told you that we also took blood sugar readings using Ron's glucometer?  Okay, I won't tell you.)  


  1. =D

    (Yes, you're weird, but then we are, too.)

    What a gracious hostess Bekah is.

    Loving the mosaics...isn't a quick, easy, fun way to share lots of photos? I always think so anyway.

  2. At least you are teaching them not to be afraid of medical stuff. I have to steel myself inside every time my blood pressure is taken, or any of that stuff. It looks like everybody had fun!
