Musings from a mom of 7

So tonight there were 2 children practicing their instruments--trumpet and alto sax--simultaneously. There was one child singing at the top of his lungs a song from the 80s (not sure how he even KNOWS that song) and the song was definitely on repeat....over and over and over. (We DO have a guiding principle in our home--most people like a song one time and then if you must, sing it again, but after that, please stop.) Not today though. I only post this to back up my first post to let you know that in my organized chaos there are moments that are more chaos than organized. But as I sit and listen, I am perfectly ok with it. It actually brings me great joy. The reason it brings me joy is because I have 7 children who love each other, love me and are happy, safe and secure--and if you know my adopted boys, that means we have come a LONG way! And in the craziness, God has given me a fulfillment that is indescribable because the moments are from Him-- and even though, like today, they are outside of my nice quiet controlled environment, I am smiling.

Michelle,
I found you through Mark's facebook page and information. Do you do facebook? I'm not on it much myself.

Your precious family. And you are a fellow pastor's wife. Oh, how I would love to have coffee with you and hear the stories of what God has done since our RA days at Master's.

But, a little visit in the blogging world can give each other a window into what is going on in our souls. Miss you, dear friend.

Hello Michelle,
I just was going through Christmas Cards and found yours from four years ago now I suppose. I love it where you were all in a row before the rose garden and you looking sideways at all your blessings. I hope you are well, I saw in a post that someone found you through facebook so I will try and find you there in case you are there. Also, I loved seeing your message from Jan 2011 - you have been an inspiration to me. We have four treasures now - thanks in part - to you and Mark's examples and prayers I'm sure.
