Hello Blog World

Well hello blog world! Its been a few weeks away, captivating this time of the year with my family and creating wonderful memories for the years to come. Perhaps this will be a this and that kind of posts with thoughts and feelings I am pondering recently. Nothing earth shattering. :-)

  • I love the way God is shaping me and molding me through certain challenges. He does it so gently, and He is challenging me to stand up and be bold.
  • Relishing in these young years with my sons and as I hold them in my arms, watch them run, play and get dirty, I feel so complete. So content. So full of real JOY. 
  • Parenting and growing with my husband as we raise vivacious, go getter boys....my cup overflows.
  •  I love my husband more and more and I love my sons more everyday. I love everyday we have.
  • Cultivating and nurturing little hearts, doesn't get any better.
  • Putting my family first and foremost.
  • Living a contented life void of complaining. 
  • Richly blessed by the words of a friend yesterday.
  • Running my first half marathon in May, the training for it feels so good. So rejuvenating. To run with a friend or to run and praise God that I am able. My runs I will track. I can do it.
  • Allowing my children to express themselves, express their hearts openly. No shame in our home, only open arms who understand that sometimes life can be hard, even when you are three almost four.
  • Planning a forth birthday party, the joy and excitement in his eyes.
  • Writing love notes.
  • Cooking wonderful meals. I love to cook.
  • Thankful for the opportunity to invest in the lives of those closest to our hearts.
The list goes on and on.  Praise God.

"My cup runneth over." Ps. 23:5

  5. I am ao proud of you. You have a great understanding of what is most important for your family. You have chosen to obey Gods calling on your lives. Your family will be blessed beyond measure for your obedience to Him. Don't ever let people try to convince you to do something you as a family don't desire to do. Your relationship with your husband and children is most important. I love boys. They are so full of energy. Watching Kyle I am amazed at the energy he has. He is always running, skipping or hopping. With that same energy he comes running to give me big hugs and kisses. Wish I was able to be there to spend time with your boys. I am sure I could convince them to give me hugs and kisses as well, with lots of energy. He he I am so proud of you for running. What a great accomplishment. We love you guys and are hoping to make a trip out there this summer. If we do we want to spend time with your little family. Love you bunches.


Thanks for stopping by! Blessings!!
