No different from Eve

My husband’s voice moaned as he plodded up the stairs, “Is tomorrow really Monday?”

 My daughter chuckled

in response, “That’s what Mom just said!”

Amazing how that happens. In less than five minutes Mike and I groaned the same question. We do many things alike these days. In another decade I might look a little Asian and he grow red hair and freckles.


We’ve been married twenty-one years and counting, twenty-two this August. Our perfect baby girl born to an unprepared momma will celebrate a birthday milestone in June.


Almost twenty-one years ago, ten months after saying “I do,” we put her first diaper on backwards. We quickly corrected our mistake. Needless to say we were relieved when my mom arrived, and many mistakes followed after she left.

Yet somehow that tiny baby grew up healthy and whole. Wonderful.


 wouldn’t change a thing.

Life is funny. Every day we are given a choice to enjoy life or dread it, to find our blessings or covet the ones we don’t have. To learn from our mistakes or continue making them. Our quandary is no different than Eve’s.
It’s a good place to be.
How have you changed for the better in the last twenty years? What are you thankful for?
Much grace and peace,
…And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Col. 3:17).
