Wow. A lot has happened since the last post! Finished school, had a baby, sold precious land, put offer on new home... about to close on new home... so many adventures about to begin! Ahh, the blessing of new beginnings. Its scary, sometimes stressful, but oh so exciting. There are so many dreams, hopes, desires and great ideas that we have stirring around in our minds and in our hearts about our future and where we hope to go from here. The one thing that we do know for sure no matter the outcome is that the Lord has his favor upon us and has our best interest in mind - - and our greatest desire is to serve and glorify Him in everything we do.
In the mornings that I have the darnest time waking up only to find my older babes getting into mischief (I'll spare you the details, but know that some of those mornings still have me shaking my head!) I have to remind myself that I need to take it all into stride in order to continue smiling and enjoying the day. My life is not my own and my children will only be little vessels of sweet, adorable energy for so long. Where am I going with all of this? Only this: life goes by way to quickly. Whether you notice or acknowledge it or not. Here I sit at nearly 11pm at night because I just got my baby to bed nearly half and hour ago.... I am very tired with a slight headache from the day and I decided to sit down and take a moment to just be. To recollect. And then I remembered a dear friend of mine that I sat down with probably a few weeks ago who admitted to me that she misses my posts.Thinking of you Ms. K! I am not too busy to share my heart. But I allow myself to be. My heart is to love, to listen, to care, empathize, to share, to pray for you.
And may I remind you, that the Lord's favor is upon you and he smiles on you each and everyday just as much as he deeply loves you. Life may be busy and hard to endure, however, you have breath to breathe because there is purpose for you to do so. Love yourself, love your life. Love your family, dear friends, and those you see for but a moment. You may be the only real smile and genuine heart they cross paths with all day. Why should you? Because you are loved and you are meant to share that love with those that need love. Be love.
