Catch Up

Have you ever heard a song that’s really catchy but then you’re like… wait, I’m not too sure about this. We’ve all heard at least one, right? I never really expected to hear and react this way to a Christian one. But every time the song God’s Not Dead by Newsboys comes on the radio or through my pandora… I don’t know. I feel like they’ve got it all wrong. The songs chorus goes like this –

My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion
God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

Maybe I’m just reading too much into a song but every time I hear this my thought is “His Spirit lives in all of us, but God is ALIVE. He truly lives. He does not only live within us. He is not an abstract idea. He is not just a feeling. He is all, in all, and lives.

So of course my logical brain can’t just “get over it” and I usually end up skipping this song on my pandora list. What can I say… I’m strange.


I kinda skipped Friday’s day. It was busy. Mornings always start out crazy trying to get 6 of the kids out the door. This picture above is part of breakfast on Friday. Theia cried because I put a piece of strawberry in her mouth. Yep. That’s it. This little girl cracks me up. And Tazdens face. He doesn’t get it. lol

It was a day of laundry, reading, and kids getting out of school early. That night, the boys wanted me to watch a movie with them. I’ve figured out that they not only want me to watch a movie with them, but they really want me to watch it with them. They even go as far as trying to make me choose what movie we’ll watch so I will sit and stay and watch it through to the end. I figured this out a while ago so I don’t choose the movie, but I do sit and stay and watch it with them. We watched a Goosebumps movie. And yes, I watched the whole thing.

Then Theia woke up. Right after the movie ended. Good timing, little one! She wanted to cuddle so I ended up falling asleep with her. This is why Friday got skipped. I fell asleep.


We did set up the pool that day though! The kids are loving it. I love that they want to be outside more often with it there. You know, because the playstation is still missing.

I’m going to have to remember to try and write every day. Even remembering things 24 hours ago can be difficult when things are so busy all the time! So hopefully (no promises) there won’t be too many catch up days in the future.
