Mexico City: Day Tres

I have to start this one off with praise. Thank You, Father, for such a blessed day. Thank You for baby's 5 hour stretch of sleep last night, plus two hours, plus three hours. Thank You for grandpa Carrillo, who willingly put Santi to sleep, singing hymns to You and resting our little peanut peacefully. Thank You for the food You have provided to this family, for the money You bless them with to buy fresh produce that strengthen us. Thank You for such hard working parents, our mami Carrillo who sweated all day in the kitchen, then rocked our 12 week old to sleep for many daytime naps. Thank You for this family, for Your love poured out onto them, for their hospitality, for this home. Thank You for Your Word, how much it encourages me when I am down, and strengthens me when I am weak, as well as fills me when I am joyful.


Thank You for the friends You have placed in my life with a purpose. Thank YOU for Your constant presence, Your unconditional love, Your forgiveness, Your power over sin, the sacrifice of Your only Son, Jesus Christ, who died so that I might live, the life You have given me.

plant-loaded plate for me! half a head of purple romaine, avocado, tomato, rice, mole sauce, black beans

So much delicious food in my belly.

I love the touch of sesame seeds on top, it looks so professional! (side note: she used to run a kitchen here in their home and served the public, their own little restaurant if you will, so she is pretty much a pro!)

happy papa with his boy!

Nap number 300!

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 
James 1:17

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  
Philippians 4:6

May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans! 

Psalm 20:4
