Cereal Bowls and Gratitude

In the Riebe house, you can measure how busy we’ve been by the amount of cereal bowls in the dishwasher. This morning, there are approximately five on the counter, 6 loaded haphazardly in the dishwasher, and 1 lone ranger left in the cupboard.

But the good news is this: between last week and this week, we’ve sold our land in Franconia, refinanced our rental, sold our car to make way for a bigger family vehicle (minivan- gulp), and I had a successful work-and-play vacation with some of my dearest girlfriends in Naples, Florida.

And no, we are planning to uproot and join a hippie commune in Nevada.

A couple weeks back I posted about providence and provision, and God continues to surprise and bless us in this area. Things are falling into place for us to be able to care for these baby girls. We are humbled, and we are grateful.

It’s Easter this weekend, and I know everyone celebrates this holiday differently. But if you haven’t thought, recently, about the biblical story of Easter, I encourage you to look it up. Read it again. Take a moment to reflect on God’s intimate encounter with humanity, and the reason why He chose to do it.

You may be surprised to realize it was for you.
