Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Thom-A-Lex Park

One of the favorite things for the kids to do when they visit is to go to the "park with the ducks."  So, we stopped at the Walmart Express on the way to Thom-A-Lex park for cheerios to feed the ducks, geese and sea gulls.  Yes, sea gulls.  I think there are more sea gulls on this lake than at the beach!  :D

We all got up around 8, ate breakfast, cleaned up the living room, dining room, toy room and kitchen.  By that time it was lunch time.  Then we headed to the park.

The sea gulls gathered to quickly eat Hannah's token.

I am woman, hear me ROAR!

We left the park at 1:30 so we could stop for something to drink on the way home and be home at 2 for Abby's nap time.  She had to work off her koolade before she would lay down, however!  :D

We woke her up in time to get ready and head to McDonalds for supper.  We went to the one over by the mall that has a play area.  Ice cream before we left and then Walmart for popcorn and THEN home!

Showers and baths being taken as we speak, plans made for the kid exchange tomorrow, movie time and then to bed, sleep head!

Thanks for letting the kids spend the night, Lizzie!  Love you!
