7 Quick Takes - Vol. 10


Already stylin'!

Here he is!!  My brand new nephew, Jonah, also know as the Little Flirt.  That's right, at only a week old, he's already good with the ladies!  I was holding him while he slept this evening, and I was trying to slowly coax him awake so he could eat.  He started streeeetching and yaaaaawning and opening his eyes into little slits, so I thought I was making progress.  Then, he fell back asleep!  I called him a tease, and he gave this impudent little half-smile. Such a Little Flirt he is, trying to win his auntie over.

Thanks to all who prayed for my sister to have a good labor!  It's much appreciated.

Learning to Love Myself (Vol. 1)

I think a lot of people tend to think of themselves in a negative light.  They focus on their faults, their failings, and what they don't like about themselves.  I know that I do this far too often.  I find it too easy to make self-deprecatory statements and play them off like jokes.

I think we all need to be a little more charitable to ourselves.  We need to recognize the lovely, funny, beautiful, and gifted parts of ourselves.  We need to remember that we are lovable because God made us and loves us.

Now, keep in mind, I'm not advocating self-centeredness or narcissism.  Just a healthy acknowledgment of the gifts and blessings God has actually given to each of us (which, by the by, is the part of the definition of humility).

So, that's what I'm going to do.
