Lots and Lots of Laughing!

Last night I was exhausted. I love Mama here, but boy do we get a little crazy when we're together! :) We are always laughing! It's so great. Cale fits right in with us like he used to, sometimes he laughs right along with us, and other times he just looks at us and says "what?" because he has no idea why we're laughing so hard...and neither do we most of the time! ;)

The day started with a beautiful Mama&Cale duet. It was decided between the two of them, that I can't sing and they're going to audition for American Idol :)



Tonight was Cale's first time going out to dinner! The 3 of us hopped in the Honda, and drove to PF Changs. There was a bit of a wait for our table (Should I have been surprised? Saturday night-dinner time...) so we sat outside and had a good ol' time! When we were finally seated, all three of us were so hungry! The Chicken Lettuce Wraps were the first item on the table! :)

Here are a few pictures to capture our good time!




Mama is supposed to fly out tomorrow, but my plan is to "accidentally" miss her plane...shh!

So...last night, I was so tired, but at least wanted to write something, so I asked for prayer for peace. I'm honestly not really worried about any of it, but it's on my heart and I know that I just need to let it go! For good!! Well, all day, the Lord has been giving me so much peace! It felt so great to not have it on my mind and in my thoughts all day. Thank you so much for praying! I even had a minute to talk to Cale about a little of it today. He's so sweet and always says the sweetest things :)

I started my morning reading my Bible, like I try to do every morning, and this is what the Lord gave me...!

So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. Hebrews 12:12

After all these months...I'm tired. Physically, emotionally, and mentally. The battle isn't over yet, we've got a long way to go, but I can be confident and be refreshed, like I've written before, God has already won the fight! He's conquered death so that we can claim victory!

Caleb and Kathleen, hold your head up high and stand like a soldier! Take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen those weak knees. You have a battle to fight and the Lord has already gone before you! March with power not with fear! Do not be distracted by the things of this world-the enemy, but keep your eyes focused on the King of Kings. Claim Victory in this dry desert! Stomp on discouragement and destroy worry. Be filled with God's glory!

...and remember, the greatest of these is love.

  1. Kathleen! You are on the right track. Remember, when Jesus was on earth, He was just like us, in that He was totally human as well as being totally God. I mean, He got tired too. It's in the gospels, I'm not sure where. When He was sitting above Jerusalem, and He wept. He was asking Jerusalem how they still didn't get it? He's been with them so long, and they still didn't get what He was trying to show them. Jesus undersands what it means to be tired of how a situation is going. We have a Savior who undersands us in all points. I love you, Marion
