hello, blog friends!
A lot has happened in my world since I last posted. New challenges and changes that have shaken and reset our little world but ones that we are trusting that God will use to draw us all closer to Him and further His purposes for our lives. But more on that later...
A few weeks ago, I celebrated another birthday while marking the four month mark of another blessing joining our family in May 2014 (...surprise!!). The day was a reflection of life up until now and how each year has shaped me and made me who I am today. At the beginning of the year, I was busy setting goals that would help some lifelong dreams become a reality and the excitement of life after early motherhood fueled my decisions. But on this day, after life had thrown us a new curve, I was still dreaming albeit a little more long-term. I realized that just because another year has made me older and another baby would make me busier than ever, there is still room for goals, still value to dreams.
My future is in God's hand and what He chooses to do with my desires is up to Him. I'm learning to approach my present as a daily gift and unwrapping delightful joys and priceless lessons along the way.
