What If...

I have been thinking today about something.

I wonder what the world and our lives would look like if we all consistently prayed the prayer, "Lord break my heart for what breaks yours."

Would we spend less time and less energy pursuing our own comfort?

Would we pray more?

Would we complain less and act more?

Would we respond to stories on the news with responsive action instead of just entertainment?

Would our homes be full of children who weren't born to us?

Would we spend our money or our time differently?

There was a story on the news this morning about a 10 month old who died from burns inflicted on him by his parents.  If we prayed the prayer, "break our heart for what breaks yours", would we respond to stories like this with more than just a head shake?

Oh Lord please break my heart for what breaks yours!

We Were Egged!

We walked out this morning to a really fun surprise! Some sweet friends from church "egged" our house last night.

Of course we weren't going to send the kids off to school and hope that the eggs would still be there when they returned.  So we had a little egg hunt before heading out. 

It was a great way to start the day and now we have some extra goodies laying around.

Catching up

My dad reminded me today that I have been a bad blogger.  Jack had surgery 2 weeks ago so I have had my hands tied up with him.  He is recovering well and we are excited to see what this procedure will do for him and his ability to walk.

Here are a few pictures that I took of Ruthie at a playdate a few days ago.
