“What if, sometimes, there be mists and fogs so thick that I cannot see the path? It is enough that You hold my hand, and guide me in the darkness; for walking with You in the gloom is far sweeter and safer than walking alone in the sunlight!” -Susannah Spurgeon
Part of fulfilling my job as a nanny includes filling these little hearts and minds with books, songs, stories, and words that drive their thoughts, hearts, and affections to the only righteous One. Here are some of my recommendations for doing so. (Link in bio.)
Lilli was praying while coloring earlier and said, “God, I love You when You’re the same and I still love You when You’re not the same.” • This echoes a lot of conversations we have on a daily basis, conversations of how she is loved regardless of her actions and how we “love you when you listen and we love you don’t.” • “Hey, Lilli, want to hear some amazing news?” • She always does. • “God never changes,” I tell her. “He’s always the same.” • “Wow.” • “How does that make you feel?” • She smiled so big. “It makes me feel really happy.” • “Why would that make you happy?” • “Because I love Him and I want Him to come everywhere with me and if He never changes it means He is always with me.” • She’s three years old. • Solid theology is a comfort for every age. Praise God for His immutability.
“Are you not willing to pass through every ordeal if by any means you may save some?” -Charles Spurgeon

New York in the Rain

thumb_IMG_7003_1024.jpg

Bagels
Times Square
Grand Central Station
The Empire State Building

That’s what we experienced today. While it was pouring down rain.

Add to that list:

Buying a new bag for Haley (her bag was not what one would call “rain ready”)
Buying umbrellas (el oh el, we almost bought only one. As in, we considered sharing an umbrella in NYC. HAHAHAHA. That would have been a DISASTER since we walked for seven hours)
Getting drenched
Getting blisters
Bleeding into soaked flats because of said blisters
Buying new shoes
Getting splashed by a taxi
Watching three police officers chase a guy and instantaneously apprehend him in Grand Central Station
Successfully navigating the Subway system

Haley and her new, cute umbrella.

Here are more photos from our wet but glorious day (find more pictures on Haley’s blog):

Bagel Talk is fabulous. We could have sat in here and watched people for hours.

Umbrellas + Times Square = cute photos and awkward navigation

Empire State Building sighting. We burst into laughter when we saw it because it was so unbelievable.
