Welcome to our adventures! We are very much in the middle of things here, so do your best to keep up if you can. Our latest dramas involve potty-training with G-bear and erupting teeth with E-bear. All fairy godmothers on deck, please!

I am currently home full-time, in the midst of a 6 week break from medical school. Prince T is leaving for a 2 week medical mission trip to Kenya this weekend, and I am bracing myself for the perfect storm of both starting my pediatrics rotation with Q4 call and having my prince charming across the Atlantic. Fortunately, it is Lent and I have been reading an amazing book called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. We all need occasional reminders to look for help in the right places, so today I will share mine from this book:

"Rest in My Radient Presence. The world around you seems to spin faster and faster, until everything is a blur. Yet there is a cushion of calm at the center of your life, where you live in union with Me. Return to this soothing Center as often as you can, for this is where you are energized and filled with My Love, Joy and Peace. The world is a needy place, do not go there for sustenance. Instead, come to Me. Learn to depend on me alone, and your weakness will become saturated with My Power. When you find your completeness in Me, you can help others without using them to meet your own needs. Live in the Light of My Presence, and your light will shine brightly into the lives of others. "
~From "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young inspired by Galatians 5:22, 1 John 4:12

Happily ever,
Queen B
