Tyrannosaurus Rex

Nevin called me a Tyrannosaurus Rex yesterday. Now, I don't really think he was "calling me names", as he often assigns "parts" to people around him in his plays. So I don't think he meant it personal...... but I took it personal, because I've been a bit ...... hmmmm....... shall we say..... grumpy..... lately. So I think it was an assignment well deserved. :( After I got over having my feelings hurt, we went on to have some very productive school time. In fact, school has been going very well lately. It's been fun.

As I went to my bible for some guidance with my "attitude", I decided to go to the book of Jonah. My bible study group is studying Jonah right now..... so I planned to "review and process" some of what we've been covering. Nevin joined me, so I read it outloud to him. He was very engaged! So we went on to "school" and processed the story of Jonah together. Nevin was very tickled that all the letters of his name are in Nineveh and that he was able to "I Spy" that fact. You might also note in the picture that Nevin usually wants to "re-process" the story with him in it....... thus, Nevin helping Jonah from the dry land to get to Nineveh. :)

I do think that I need to look inward and take better care of myself. I need to sit at the feet of Jesus for a while and surrender some things that I've been carrying. No big secrets..... just life..... it gets real heavy when you try to carry it on your own. I think some of my issues are a combination of cabin fever, and lack of "girl time". Soooo....... girls..... we got some "planning" to do. :)
