Live Loved by Margaret Feinberg

Adult colouring books are all the rage. So, what about a colouring books that helps you think about scripture and think about God? That is what Live Loved by Margaret Feinberg is all about.

This is a lovely book. After the introduction, each verse has a two page spread. The left page has the verse and space to journal and reflect on the verse. The right page has the verse written in a lovely script and surrounded by lots of patterns and flowers to colour. Each one is unique and lovely.

I am looking forward to using this book as part of my devotions in the New Year. As a young mom, I am going to have to be very deliberate and intentional about setting apart time to use this book as it is intended. But I am looking forward to being forced to slow down and focus on the word of God. And I enjoy having another outlet to use my creativity. Especially one that will help to remind me time and time again that I am a child of God. I think the best thing about this book is that there is not right or wrong way to use it. I am enjoying finding out what is going to work the best for me.

Thank you for the great review! I am thrilled that it is a resource to draw others to meditating on the Lord and the love that He has for us. Hugs & Happy Colouring!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
