since i have had my "hands open more"...i don't really think that my life looks any different.
i even asked pat if he could tell a difference and he said, "no."
but I can tell a difference...inside...there is a peace and freedom that can only be from Him.

there are some observations i would make though.

since i have had my "hands open more":

i have exercised a little less.
i have gained some weight.
my house isn't as clean.
i've played more on the floor with sawyer.
i've looked at rebekah's eyes almost every time she has told me a story.
i've had more energy at the end of the day.
i've read less books. {although i did just finish Catcher in the Rye for the first time...what is the deal with that book? i still can't figure out if i liked it...and why it's a "classic"??}
i've read more of the Bible.

i hope to continue some of those things...but not all of them!

i didn't get catcher in the rye either... i couldnt finish it, in fact. then henry came home a few weeks ago at the bookstore and said he'd read the first 60 pages and wanted to get it from the library. this is a man who hardly ever has the patience to finish a book. he said the narrator thought just like him. i think it's a guy thing!
love your list btw. my house is way messier these days too. :)

Again, you are seeking God...and what is best today. I love the smile on your face...enjoying Sawyer on the floor. You are listening....continue. I do hear and see a difference Courtney.
