Caffeinated Randomness: Where's da moon?

So, seeing as I've only had one cup of coffee so far...I shall begin by saying the above is the coolest latte I have ever seen! I don't know if I could drink this one. Sweet Son saw it and said, "Where's da moon?" Cuz...well...he's sort of in love with the moon these days. With our recent time change (ugh, spit and grumble) he's been seeing the moon rising on the sunset horizon as we exit church or other evening activities. He goes on and on (and on and on) about it the whole way home. We turn a corner and he says, "Where's da moon?" He's even got his sister into the action. So, if you're in Indy and you happen to see me drive past at night...and my kids are hanging out of their car seats looking up at the you know!!

This weekend is an exercise in not being disappointed but rejoicing in God's good plan. Due to a whole heaping lot of work stress for Loverbrains...we have "battened down the hatches" and decided to cancel all family trips, etc. until the "storm" has passed. There is some guilt associated with this...which thankfully our families have dispelled with their amazing understanding and love. There is some disappointment in this...cuz we love our families and would like to see them...and our children to see them...but there will be other times. Right? know what??? God's plan is GOOD!! I know, big shocker. It's almost like I've never read Jeremiah 29:11, "
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Last, but randomly not least, I started playing a game with my Curious Georgette that I played with my mother when I was little. I whisper, "Hey, Emmy...guess what?" She gets all excited and I whisper, "I. LOVE. YOU." The really cool thing...after doing this and getting her giggles for many a time...She has started doing it back. She said to her DadE last night....*whisper*..."DadE...wanna know a secret?" He said "What?" and she smiled her cheesiest smile and said, "I loves you!!" Awwww!

So, that's it for my caffeinated randomness...mostly cuz I need to go get another cuppa of caffeinated. Oh, you poor dearies on decaf...I'm amazed and in awe!

Go visit Andrea to view the other zany CRs...FYI...She was wonderful at A Woman Inspired Conference Wednesday....and just a quick shout out...the conference is rocking this Domestic Engineer's socks off! God is so good!!

Those storms of life seem to be wide-spread these days. I am thankful for your reminder to praise Him in ALL things.

"Where's da moon?"... I love it! LOL I can just picture them hanging out of their car seats to catch a peek... too cute! :)

Oh yes, God's plan. I have always loved that Jeremiah verse!

Your little whisper game, all I can say is AWWW!!


Annika said...

Wish I could draw in my coffee like that!
I love the verse in Jeremiah. It had been my rock many times as I walk through the valley's of life. Hold on to it, God will walk you to the other side... And it will be glorious!

Your whisper game is just beautiful.

I am sorry you had to cancel your trips but you are so right about God's plan.

That latte is gorgeous. I always enjoy your coffee themed photos to go with your posts!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Being 1,000 miles away from my family and 2,000 miles away from hubby's, we didn't get to see them as often as we would have liked.

I hope this current storm passes quickly.

The latte is almost too cute to drink. I love the "Where's da moon?" and the "Guess what?" scenarios.

Lauren said...

your little one sounds so sweet! I must say that's the coolest latte I've ever seen!!!! Hope things calm down a bit for you guys!

Tracy said...

I don't even know how you would make that latte. Amazing.

Isn't it true? We ride these storms of stressful times. It sounds like you have the right idea in making things simple.

I always enjoy reading your "random" sharing....

I'm one of those poor decaf girls, but I enjoy it just the same!

Don't kids just say the sweetest things, ever?

That is one neat looking cup of coffee, by the way!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

WAIT! Do you live in Indianapolis? We just moved from there three years ago - had been a resident my entire life. We now live in West Lafayette - what a small world! I do miss it horribly but I also love where we are.

You also mentioned my favorite verse - Jeremiah 29:11. Combine that with Romans 8:28 and you know that His plan always works for the good. You may not see the good NOW but eventually, it will be for the good.

The time change in the spring never really affected us much when the kids were little. They were early risers anyway.

Now the one I used to love in the fall where you get your extra hour...once I had kids it did nothing for me except mess up a good schedule. It was my undoing for weeks!
