Explanation of Random Thoughts
So, the following are some of those Random Thoughts - GWs and SPs and CFs which I may not want to take the time to make a full blog post on, but so fun to collect them here.
DD2 sees cotton balls and proudly says, "Toes" - Yes, sweetie, Mommy uses those cotton balls to take the nail polish off my toes. I am struck my how her world is growing, her perspective of the world filling in. She not only sees a bag of roundish, white puffy objects and recognizes them as cotton balls, but she is able to articulate their purpose (or at least a purpose known by her). OK, this one ended up being longer enough to be a full post:) Have to embrace that God allowed me to be wired verbose! Here's the rest of the post. (5/27/12-CF)
I blow out a set of three and two candles to represent my now 32 years and with closed eyes wish...pray to the God of Joy for Joy. Now, I could believe that my wish won't come true because I shared its secret, but instead I believe that God desires to grant joy and that "in His presence is fullness of joy." (Psalms 16:11) I guess I want God's presence then, I guess I want more of God, want to be in union with His presence. Ann Voskamp says in One Thousand Gifts (p. 113): "How we behold [how we see, what our perspective is] determines if we hold joy." May I behold You, Your glory, Your presence! (5/27/12 - CF)
