from jonathan edwards’ resolutions,

no. 65:

resolved, very much to exercise myself in this, all my long life, viz.
with the greatest openness, of which i am capable of,
to declare my ways to God,
and lay open my soul to him:

all my sins, temptations, difficulties, sorrows,
fears, hopes, desires, and every thing,
and every circumstance;
according to dr. manton’s 27th sermon on ps 119.

-j. edwards
july 26 + aug 10, 1723.

which reminds me of two special verses this week:

‘o Lord,
be gracious to us;
we long for you.

be our strength every morning,
our salvation in time of distress.’
isaiah 33:2


‘may your mercy come quickly to meet us,
for we are in desperate need.’
psalm 79:8

and speaking of difficulties + sorrows…
did you know you can book an hour
of counseling with dr. turansky?
(as in mr. biblical parenting,
one of our favorite resources ever?)

you can + we did + it was
ridiculously helpful and encouraging.

the night before, c + i brainstormed
(and he articulated + typed out)
our top five areas of current concern/frustration
regarding our family dynamics and i spent an hour
asking questions and taking fast-paced notes
with scott’s wisdom.

wow, sign me up for that one again soon.

ps –
it’s super straightforward.
call them to schedule your hour;
you won’t regret it.

pps –
google dr. manton’s 27th sermon.

our first [only?] strawberry
of the season.

caroline spit it out after a timid bite,
citing, ‘tastes funny’ as
the reason for rejection.

it really doesn’t show well in
the picture, but c’s breakfast
creation resembled a
(wait for it)
siberian tiger.

trust me, it did.
