I'm just one of those discontened types...

I can't help it! I love to rearrange the furniture. When I've got my own place, I'm moving things around monthly. My blog suffers from my discontent also-I keep finding something I want to try, and you all never know what to expect when you come here.

I'll try to be good and keep it this way for a while, but I'm not promising anything, because this place keeps coming up with more adorable designs I want to try, and I'm a sucker for trying on new things. (Why did they have to make it so easy, anyway?!)

Where Do Bats Come From?

Here is one of the deeper conversations we had this morning. Rebecca, who likes to anylize everything to pieces, Elisabeth, the serious one who takes everything literally, and me.

Rebecca (wearing a black plastic batman mask, quite adorible): "Look Mom! I'm Batgirl!"

Me: Cute!

Rebecca, after a short silence: "Mom, can bats be girls?"

Me: "Well, yes, there are bat girls and bat boys, too."

Rebecca, after another short silence: "Are there bat babies?"

Me: "Of course there are bat babies! Where do you think bats come from?"

Elisabeth has been listening intently, and she thinks she knows the answer to this one. She pipes up immediately, in all seriousness; "I know! The BAThroom!"

Have a glorious Resurrection Sunday!

This is what it means to me:
(When you get time, just go ahead and read the whole chapter of 1 Cor. 15!)

1Co 15:19-20
(19) If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
(20) But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

1Co 15:42-43
(42) So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
(43) It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

1Co 15:51-58
(51) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
(52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
(53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
(54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
(55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
(56) The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
(57) But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(58) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Whoo! What a day!

We are all packed up and ready to head out to Vancouver, WA tomorrow morning. We'll be pretty busy this month, but I'll try to stop in and say "hey" every now and then.

Lord bless you!
