I have had a wonderful and busy yet overwhelming week. I have had the opportunity to attend the amazing Frog Street Press Conference for Teachers. Even a preschool teacher like me!
We have had four birthdays including my daughter’s 4th birthday. We have had lots of splash park time, although our family doesn’t do well in the heat, we still had a great time. I always ask what are we doing in Texas??
So here are a few pictures of our family. Hope you are sharing family time and capturing lots of moments together. Big and small. Intentional and random.
I love my son’s picture of him. Reminds me of Alfalfa. He even has his personality. We are with my sister too. Of course daddy and daughter picture and mommy and son. I heart my family….
Love to bake and make cake pops! These were for a friend who had a sweet baby boy. Love him. Random photos of making cake batter and my favorite coffee mug. The picture of my magnolia bloom is from my magnolia tree.
The magnolia bloom reminds me of God’s love and the creation of this world.Such a delicate flower but created in a perfect way expressing the beauty and amazing Love and Care God provides. The same way he created this magnolia bloom he created you and I.
I am in a place if TRUST with an outcome I have no idea what will be. I carefully place these worries in God’s hand so desperately trying not to take them back. Trusting God is not suggestion but a command.
We stress and fret over our worries be them small or big. The worries of our home, our children, our marriages, our health, even our faith. Yet God never intended us to worry.
Dear friends, as I write this to myself, I hope you find encouragement to lay your burdens and your worries in God’s hands. He already knows what they are and he wants to help you. Live in his presence today. Trust God and he will carry you through it. Each and every day.
As this day is hard for me I still TRUST in my Lord he will bring me through this for his good. He has an answer for me in his timing.
I will wait. I will wait. I will wait.
This is so hard for me as I imagine for some of you as well. The easy and self pleasing way is to be impatient and try to control the situation to answer the prayer on our terms.
But I will wait and I will have HOPE.
I will not only pray for the answer from God but I will have hope and expect it.
Jesus is always with me. It is my choice to deny his love or have hope and trust him.
Today I choose to trust you again in this journey. I choose you. You are bigger than the world. You will give me peace and never disappoint me. You will never leave me.
My hope is heaven.
