Phrases Abounding

Image
Do you ever come across a phrase you've never heard before and then start to hear it over and over?

Is it that you never heard it or that you never listened for it?

I don't know the answer to that, but I do know that I have had a phrase shared with me in different settings three times in the last three weeks, and I know without a doubt that God is speaking to me.
He is speaking directly to my heart.

I can't say that I've ever heard him quite this clearly before, so it's taken me a little off guard.

Root of Bitterness

That phrase has shown up two weeks in a row during our Wednesday morning Bible study lesson. I think those were the first two times that I had heard it used.

The third was during my prayer last night from Thirty-One Prayers for My Husband, the book set that The Husband and I have been doing together.

Oliver Flynn - 10 Months Old

Oliver is 10 months old today!
He still has the sweetest disposition. He gives open-mouth kisses willingly and often.  He says “mama,” “dada,” and “buhbuh” but doesn’t really direct them at anyone in particular.  He scoots but doesn’t crawl yet. He’s so close though. He tries to pull up on us but not on anything else. Thankfully!   He has two teeth.  His eyes are still brilliantly blue.  His grin is infectious.  He squeals and chuckles and babbles and keeps us all entertained.  He takes two long naps a day and often a cat nap in the late afternoons.  He sleeps around 11 hours every night without waking.  He nurses 5 or 6 times a day and has tried a few finger foods but doesn’t eat solids on a regular basis. He likes shredded cheese, bites of potato off my spoon, Cheerios, and a few tiny pieces of apple. He did not like the baked carrots and vomited them right up. It was gross.  He’s a dream doll-baby, and we adore him wildly 😍
