Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Five for Friday

Five for Friday

1.  I still haven't seen Hunger Games...are you kidding me?!?  I'm dying to see it but we just haven't had a chance yet.  Really hoping this is the weekend.

2.  I love drinking a cup of coffee but never seem to finish one...imagine crazy boys must need me.  This is often the view my husband gets when he comes home from work....I reheated my coffee but forgot about it and left it in there for the rest of the day.  I can do this sometimes 3 times a day.  This so reminds me of my grandmother...she did this all the time.
Side note, isn't this the best coffee cup?!?  A sweet lady that followed our story when we were in the hospital with Forrest brought it to the hospital to give to us.  We didn't know her from Eve and thought it was a little strange but now I LOVE it!  I use it every single day...I love that I see my precious little guys face every morning when I wake up.  

3.  Sponsor letters have been emailed out for the Forrest Spence 5k!  Woo woo!  The date is set for August 25...its going to be the best ever.  If you are interested in sponsoring the 5k than send me an email (brittany at and I will make sure you receive a Sponsor packet.

4.  Austin has been a pistol lately.  Thankfully he was super good when his daddy was out of town but then this week he has turned back into a pistol.  I thought we were going to have a knock down drag out in the middle of Boston Gardens on Wednesday after bible study...please tell me its just him being 3 and that this too shall pass.

5.  Love these 2 even though they are hard, hard, hard sometimes!

*4 posts in a 5 day period...that is like a new record!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Three was the HARDEST age for my boys. Be consistent, preach the gospel, and try to stay calm. Easier said than done:) 4-5 has been sooooooo different-back to sweet sweet boys.

You are such a good blogger:) If it's any consolation, from my experience 3 was really tough and 4 is the cutest, most fun age. I am loving it. What Ginny said - I am reading Give them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus and really trying to just give them (Kate - Rainer is certainly still in the "management" stage) the gospel all the time. I feel like 4 is when they finally really begin that transition from management-based discipline to understanding. At least that's my experience. Could be very different w/ a girl's ability to think and process and relate.

I'd say we girls could go to the movies, but we may not have time with all the other fun stuff we've got planned! And that sweet. I know you love it. I just drink my coffee cold these days. And it's just being three. Three is the most difficult age - not two. It's the terrible threes!

I'm counting down to June 18!! PLEASE let 4 be better!

I was serious when I said I would see HG again with you.

Dixie said...
