Okay, it's Friday of a very long week. Can't get a cohesive thought together, so I share some random ones...
#1: Faith and Bellybuttons
(I told you it was random.) Stay with me...
At one time, we all depended on our umbilical cord for life. We got all our nourishment and oxygen from our mothers through it. We developed into who we would be while attached to it. But on the day our our birth, the cord was cut. We could eat and breath on our own. It became useless.

#3: Holding a newborn.
Today, I got to hold a sweet little one. He was so small, he just fit into the bend of my arm. I got to feed him his morning snack; four ounces of formula. Oh, those little grunting sounds he made reminded me of when my own were so little. The smell of his head, the warmth of his skin, and the little TINY feet and fingers were almost more than I could bear.
Is it possible that now, 3 of 4 of my babies are bigger than me? February is birthday month at our house. Three of my four have their birthdays within an 8 day stretch. No, I did not plan it that way... By the end of the month, I will have a new 18 year old, a 14 year old, and a 10 year old. (The 15 year old's birthday is in April ~ on Easter this year!) The seasons of my life are changing.
LORD, help me stay faithful in the process!
#4: I love this ballet.
Reminds me of what happens when Mark has to leave for work... *;)
I may be a bit random today, but the word of the LORD stands forever constant:
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
— 1 Corinthians 13:6-7 (NIV)
