Catch up!

Hey friends,
It's been a while... Shall I tell you what's on my mind?



1. Plain M&M's, although nothing much to think of on their own, are irresistible along side a nice cup of freshly pressed coffee.

2. The book, Knowing God by J.I. Packer is so great. And I'm only 1/3 of the way through.

3. The weather has been gloriously balmy this week, but we'll be settling back into rainfall tonight, I believe.

4. David fell ill for 5 days last week with a raging fever and now Caiden has it.

5. Consequently of #4 I got to spend Valentines Day with my beautiful sister in law, Allison, sharing the Lord with some strangers over a paper cup full of homemade soft serve. It was quite a day.

6. My birthday passed by pretty inconspicuously, but it was lovely as well. I'm 26. Woot!

7. I've found some new blogs to read, including, "Sundays" and "Unhappy Hipsters."

8. I pride myself on my knowledge of English, grammar, and spelling, but I'm realizing that I use commas much too often and can never remember where to put the punctuation of sentences when there is a quote at the end, like in #7 above.

9. Yesterday afternoon, Elliott nonchalantly asked me, while I was reading a book, if I had any dance moves. I replied in the affirmative, so he said, "Okay, why don't you show me them, then?" So I did.

10. The Lord is good and faithful. I am learning to trust Him more and more. Philippians 4:6-9, Isaiah 26:3,4.

11. I am so thankful to all of you who read my blog and who consistently encourage me and chide me into updating my blog. I really love it. For example, check out this email I received from my mother in law last month. I was cracking up when I read it. We both love the movie "You've Got Mail." It is so great that I had to share. I hope you don't mind, Mom. The subject title read, "readers weary." This is what it said:

"CORYNNE, COME ON! YOU HAVE AN AUDIENCE. WE ARE GROWING TIRED OF WAITING. I GO TO MY COMPUTER. AS I TYPE IN THOSE LETTERS [crynfiction.com], I WAIT AND WAIT, (CAUSE MY COMPUTER IS KIND OF SLOW), I SEE THE FIRST ENTRIES FOR MULTIPLE ENTRIES AND I STOP AND NOTICE- - - OH, NEVER MIND! SHE HASN'T UPDATED HER BLOG SINCE SUNDAY, JAN 3RD. I EXIT OUT OF MY WINDOWS AND TURN OFF MY COMPUTER AND TRY TO FIND SOME SUNSHINE ELSEWHERE. I know you have other priorities, but come on.

P.S. Did that kind of sound like "You've Got Mail"?"

Wasn't that great?! It sure brightened my day and reminded me that all of you are reading and supporting me. So keep the feedback coming, I love it! Blessings on your week. <3 love, crynfiction.
