Tuesdays Unwrapped

Today I'm joining others at chatting at the sky for

It's an opportunity to delight in the "everyday" and slow down enough to enjoy what has been given.

Boys, boys boys.... with nine of them, I'm pretty used to seeing them in trees. Actually, I try not to look most of the time. It's better on my heart that way.

I do choose to look though, and cheer them on and rejoice with them as they strive to be
men and conquer their world. From the older,

to middle-sized,

to aspiring toddlers....

They all climb and I learn more about praying as each day goes by~ and I'm not only referring to praying for their safety!


  1. How smart you are not to look! Nine boys climbing in trees is enough to make a Mommy crazy. But it sounds like you have the perfect perspective. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. I think I'd be peeking through my fingers as I was praying, too!

    Can I just say that I love your clothesline! I hope to be getting one this weekend.

  3. I'm so glad I found your blog (through chatting at the sky)!
    I have 7 boys and 4 girls (and four grandchildren now..which is totally awesome) and I can sure relate to not looking as the boys climb trees. My husband purposely positioned our trampoline so I could not see it from any windows!They got tired of my gasps!

  4. I understand not watching as the boys climb trees! I have 6 boys and have to close my eyes to a lot they do! Especially those backyard football games . . .
