I face my days not knowing what
the next minute holds. I absorb every
second, knowing that I’ll never have it again.

I live passionately, on purpose, leaving
nothing to chance.

And all the while, finally
having time to pursue the deep desires of
my heart; which I am sure over time you
will discover them through my blog.

Overplanning Busyness

Sometimes I find myself getting frustrated because I look around and see all my other friends being super planned. Meal plans, craft plans, activity plans for their kids, etc. I am a home-body. I love being at home. While I get the travel itch at times, it isn’t the travel to gymnastics, then a play date, then groceries, then home. I know why people think they are too busy. They have too many things planned for their days-in my opinion.

Here’s some background on this…

I was a teacher before becoming momma. I planned my weeks down to the detail. Towards the end of my short career, I had most of the details in my head because I’d done them so much, but I still had them planned.

Life Lessons

Just when you think you are done learning, another lesson begins. You never see them coming. Those big, a-ha moments where you have the option to let your world cave in, or when you have the chance to fall into Grace. God’s grace. His unmeritted favour.

Grace. Oh how I need Grace. We all do. Daily. The trusting God that He has made you fearfully and wonderfully with His own hand. (Ps. 139:14). Isaiah 58:11 (ESV) says, “The Lord will guide you continually…”  Don’t you just love that? Continually means “without interruption, constantly.”

The Great Debate…Organizing our Food

Disclaimer: In no way am I a professional in the area of health care, nor in the area of what is best to force a child to eat and what battles to leave be. As always, positive comments are always welcome. Build up, not tear down, y’all!

In our house, we have five different types of eaters. And yes, there are five members in my adorable family :) The Mister; he eats anything I make, even back in the day when I didn’t follow any, I mean, ANY recipe. He would just nicely tell me never to make that again…after he asked what recipe I used. Lil’ A; she fluctuates. Right now she is eating whatever I make as well as making good choices with her snacks. I have her teacher at Pre-K to thank for helping me in that area. Lil’ E is my strong-willed child…and that also means in the food area. Right now she is thriving on milk and PB and J. I’m just thankful it isn’t cheese or something of that nature that should be controlled for health sake.

What’s in a Word…2014 edition

Back in November, as I mentioned here, I was thinking about 2014. So many good things happened in 2013. It was a year of great Grace and patience, as I waited on the Lord to help me understand what He wanted me to do next. More kids (the Mister just “loves” when I bring this up!;) ), work, renovations on the house, business, what? The whole year I just heard my word, Balance, over and over. I needed it to function. To function on lack of sleep, running to preschool, errands and the general happiness of my little kiddos. I had intentions that went undone not just at home, but with friends. But I do feel I accomplished so much just being present with my kids.

Another long break…

At the beginning of November, I got to thinking about what my word for 2014 would be. That being said, I couldn’t think ahead without thinking about the two months I still had left in 2013 and what part my word for this year, balance, was playing in it. I made a choice to not blog. Nothing was getting in the way with it. I had time. (Eventhough Baby M was still not sleeping longer than 4 hours at a time.) I chose Balance instead.

So, in case you are wondering what Balance looks like in my house, here is part in pictures!
