finger paints!

I love doing things with kids. I especially love being apart of creativity. There is something about the arts that I think opens up the mind. It's ok to get a little dirty.. I think parents need to let their kids express themselves in different ways. In the process there maybe a mess but the experience is incredible. Lets face it the mess really can't be that bad. So have fun and enjoy the little ones.
This was Malachi's first time with paint. He hates being dirty and freaks out with there is anything on his hands. But I think I helped him break out of that even if it was just for a day ;)

 war paint and his battle cry

 He is always yelling at Nieve (the dog) saying "go poppy!" his way of saying puppy
the shoes he is wearing are ones with squeakers in them.. needless to say they drive everyone and the dog nuts.
just so you all know, this was in our backyard.. we don't normally let him go out in just a onsie. but to keep the dirtying of clothes to a minimum this day was an acception

Basically the relationship was toxic and abusive. So much so that I lost a lot of who I was in always being on the defensive and sticking up for myself. I'm not saying that is was all his fault. Just as in any relationship, both parties are responsible for nurturing or poisoning. So here I am almost 5 years later living my life and loving it.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
