Happy Belated Earth Day

Justus had school yesterday, and in honor of Earth Day, the kids took home Coleus seeds to plant and grow. Justus, Titus, and I planted the seeds today...we'll have to see about the "growing" part:) (There were 3 whole seeds in the packet along with others that had been crushed.)

I watched "Oprah" today, and I have to say I was pretty floored by the segment on all of the trash in the ocean. I wouldn't consider myself a very green person, but I do try to do some green things. After watching this show, however, I felt pretty convicted about the amount of trash we put out as a human race and am compelled to do something about our carbon footprint. They also had a short video clip of a dump, where they showed us the different types of trash found there...including things that could have been recycled (or Freecycled).

New pics of Eli

Well, we are drowning in snot, mucous, and phlegm here at the Frye house. We have all been blessed with stuffy noses, disgusting coughs, and watery eyes.

After getting off the phone this morning with one of the doctors' offices and finding out that the Medicaid coverage STILL wasn't showing up for the surgery (and finding out that they had turned us into collections and we "should be expecting warning letters in the mail"), I called my caseworker to find out what was going on. I felt so frustrated/defeated/mad. I'm still awaiting her call back, but in the meantime, I had to share today's reading from Jesus Calling (which was perfect timing as usual!)...

"I am calling you to live a life of thankfulness...The basis for your gratitude is My sovereignty...When you criticize or complain, you are acting as if you think you could run the world better than I do. From your limited human perspective, it may look as if I'm mismanaging things. But you don't know what I know or see what I see...I have designed you to live by faith, not by sight..…
