We’re the ones who celebrate the Lord. We feast on his goodness regardless of what our lives look like. Whatever you are going through today, remember that here on earth is the only place that you can flavor your offering with pain and suffering, because in Heaven- there will be none of it!! Don’t miss your chance to praise in your most unique hard situations because no one else can offer up your sacrifice. Only you. Don’t miss it.
I’m terrible at keeping up with posting. 😿 BUT then this happened today. JUST STOP BETSY LU. JUST STOP. 🥰
Find your people and allow yourself to be crazy raw with them. . You know you’ve found a true soul to confide in when you feel at peace saying to her, “I can’t believe I’m telling you all this icky heart stuff... but I don’t want it to stay in here, I want it in the light. And I want it out.” So many good conversations with this dear heart. Many tears, many laughs, many “yup, I’m right there with you in the trenches too.” I don’t know where I’d be without this gem of a woman. Love you sis. 💕❤️ @jebeachy
Dusty & Kelley — one of the sweetest little families there ever was. 💞✨ Graham’s smiles lit up my camera this past spring and Colette is sure catching on quick. Love this adorable family. 🥰
Today we had a little ordeal with a cuss word and a 4yr old.. 🙀. . . We were in the car and I heard the dreaded word. My insides wanted yell and overreact and be annoyed my girl knew this word. However, the Lord reminded me of a conversation I had with Jared about making a huge deal out of shaming my kids for something that they didn’t have an understanding of right verses wrong. Did my child know that this word is on the English “swear words” list?! Uh, no she didn’t. Do I have an idea where she heard it from? Yes. But instead of being frustrated my daughter is no longer innocent in this area, I can choose to approach this as a teaching opportunity — because being a parent is like being in a classroom 24/7 — EVERY moment is a chance to learn where our children are at in their journey and teach them what they need to know for this season. It really just depends on whether or not our hearts our positioned to be ready and willing for the moment. Spoiler alert! It’s always when we least expect it and it will interrupt your schedule. What a good reminder for my soul to be ready at all times to teach our children the ways of God... 1 Peter 3:15.
