Powerful Stuff!

I just read an awesome post on John Piper's blog.

... if we know that the essence of our evil is not commandment-breaking, but
preferring anything to God, then our focus for change will be a change of heart.
That is hopeful, because God promised, “I will remove the heart of stone from
their flesh and give them a heart of flesh” (
Ezekiel 11:19).
Wow, powerful stuff! I just have to share the link. It is well worth the read. Check it out!
Knowing the Nature of Your Evil


I seem to have been MIA for quite sometime. We got back from Cancun earlier this week and the preparations for us to go (we left the kids home) and the chaos since we've gotten back has kept me away. We had a great time and it was well worth all the work of preparing to go, but I doubted for awhile. LOL I didn't take too many pictures since we stayed at the same resort we went to last year. And to be honest, I was lazy and just wanted to relax. Toting my heavy camera bag around wasn't high on my priority list. But I did take a few and will share those just as soon as I find time to download them off my camera.

I better run now. Brenton just reminded me that I need to help him with his book report. I think I counted yesterday that we only have 13 more weeks until summer vacation. Woo hoo! I think I am looking forward to it more than the kids. I can't wait till the weather is warm, our pool is opened, and we can spend our days swimming and sunning by the pool. It's always so hard to come back from warm and tropical Mexico this time of year to the cold and snow. I love Iowa, but the Yucatan Peninsula wouldn't be a bad place to spend the winter months if one could afford the time and money. ;)
