There are in all our lives hours of over-powering anxiety, when we feel as though it were impossible to live another moment...but then as you look up, you find that the Lord is beside you, sharing your anxieties and affording you His invincible protection. You cannot see Him with the human eye, but you know Him to be there, and neither man nor devil can prevail against you. When we look back on our personal life, we become aware of the myriad instances of divine protection. We were not so vividly conscious at the time; we might even have had battles with doubt, discouragement, and despair, and counted ourselves without hope. But if we narrowly consider the dangers from which we have been rescued, when we were about to be swallowed up quickly, we become convinced that He was there.

Tera made Daniel this "Bibleman" bracelet.
Tera helps me some but gets bored quick so I am basically doing them on my own but let her help as long as she feels like it. It has been very therapeutic for me lately. During this transition, I still have days when I get down but having a hobby that I can do with very limited time or energy in the comfort of my living room without special equipment is great. These puzzles cost under $4 at Walmart and are very Americana. I enjoy looking at these kinds of intricate paintings and they are so diverse it makes it easier to put together. Oh well I won't bore you any longer on the ins and outs of puzzles.

Tera and Daniel have discovered puzzles... Daniel who doesn't usually like to sit still long enough to do one has been putting together two and three 24 piece puzzles at a time. Tera has graduated from 50 pieces to 100. I am planning on starting a new summer tradition. As soon as we can get to Wal-mart or Dollar Tree we are going to get more puzzles and start a 500 piece puzzle together as a family project. When it is hot in the afternoon and you can't go outside, you can always work on a puzzle together. Well, we can hope.
We have also added a new pasttime to our day. The mobile home we are renting has a big 6 person hot tub on the back porch. Well, we heard it cost a horrific amount to heat the thing so we just filled it with water (we have well water) and are letting the kids have their own little swimming pool in the nice shade of the screened in porch. Daniel has said he never wants to leave here because in his own words "I like it here". I am sure the hot tub situation is helping him find contentment in our surroundings. I don't think I have ever seen my children enjoy life more. That's pretty awesome.
