Has it been over a month since I've blogged? Totally not intentional I tell ya. We've been going full speed this summer with the Are We There Yet? play, Big River rehearsals, horse riding lessons, piano... and that's only for Ella. Add normal day to day life and there you have it. Time got away. But, while I haven't been blogging, I have been reading other blogs. I'm such a blog hog. I love reading other women's blogs. I gain such insight and inspiration to every day life and it makes me think... wow, I'm not the only one that feels like this. I totally related to this blog entry over at Resolved to Worship. It's a must read... actually, I think all of her posts are a must read. And check out her family... are those not some gorgeous kiddos?!

Also, I've been checking out Girl Talk's 52 Home photography project. Girl Talk is a blog consisting of a group of moms and daughters that talk about biblical womanhood and lots of other fun stuff too like recipes, babies and photography. They have a 52Home project that I just adore. Each week a photo is documented of their life. Ordinary life. You may find a picture of over ripened bananas... or car keys. But don't you think ordinary life is where we are most of the time? Reality is not kicked back on vacation with our feet in the sand. Reality isn't bumming around window shopping or antique browsing every day. Reality isn't pedicures and manicures. Reality is the Shep is crying. Reality is Ella spilled juice. Reality is I can't find my car keys. Reality is ordinary, every day life. But in these moments, they should be done “…so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior” (Titus 2:10) God's glory is revealed all around us. Yes! Even in our ordinary life! We don't have to be at the beach to enjoy the wonders of God. We don't have to see the wondrous mountain landscape to enjoy the wonders of God. We ARE a wonder of God. Our lives are wonders. We must glorify Him daily! “So teach us to number our days that we will get a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12

And... to my dear friend Tammy... isn't this a project that would be perfect for us to do together? :) Just sayin'... :)
