Summer Fun!

This summer has just been crazy! Not working and being able to spend tons of time at home with my little man has been different. I am a workaholic and the adjustment has been difficult, but it has also been tons of fun!! I miss seeing people above the age of 1, but I love being able to experience all the different stages Malakai has gone through. The weather has been pretty cool, so we haven't spent to much time at the pool either. Since it has been so cool, I did have to go out and buy some warmer clothing for Malakai. While shopping I found these sweet leg warmers. Eric isn't the biggest fan of them and this is usually what they look like after he changes his diaper!

Natalee, the little one in the middle, turned one the other day. The three of them are all 3 months apart, it is pretty crazy. Jakob, on the right, is 15 months. Natalee is a year. Then there is Malakai, trailing behind at 9 months. Even though they can't talk very well, they will look at eachother and once in awhile someone will get pushed over.Malakai is getting pretty daring. He has started to pull himself up on anything and everything. Not only this little toy, but he likes to pull himself up on the dog as well. Milo is so well behaved that he just stands there, but once in awhile Milo will loose his balance and then they both tip over. I really don't think it will be long and he will start walking. Then my life will get even crazier!!!

This weeks Blog Hop Topic is, your favorite quote, spiritual passage , life lesson, saying, PHOTO or encouraging thought. The person who gave this to me will know it was them. I have yet to thank them, but this prayer was helpful for me! Hopefully it will help someone else now!
Thank You!!

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,
I thank You for my being able to see
and to hear this morning.
I'm blessed because You are
a forgiving God and
an understanding God.
You have done so much for me
and You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for everything
I have done, said or thought
that was not pleasing to you.
I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe
from all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day
with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day
to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind
that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper
over things I have no control over.And give me the best response
when I'm pushed beyond my limits.I know that when I can't pray,
You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be
a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak...
Keep me uplifted that I may have
words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost
and can't find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged
and misunderstood.
I pray for those who
don't know You intimately.
I pray for those that will delete this
without sharing it with others
I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank You that I believe
that God changes people and
God changes things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
For each and every family member
in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy
in their homes; that they are out of debt
and all their needs are met.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.

I pray that these words be received
into the hearts of every eye that sees it
in Jesus' name. Amen!

God I love you and I need you,
come into my heart, please.
