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.

Coming Soon….

Oh boy…has it been a long time…..

Blogging has always been one of those things that helps me think more clearly. It helps me be more creative, and grow in areas of my life that need it the most. (Or the least as the Mister says when it comes to crafting….it’s not like crafting is a need…. )

Where to begin…..

January. We found out we were expecting baby #4. We never thought about a Number Four. Well, not really anyway. I, for one, always thought four would be great. After all, there was only ever me and my brother, so I liked the idea of there being a large family around one day in the future. (Although you could argue that I did more things with just me and my brother than my friends did with their big families growing up, but that’s not the point.)

So the first few months of the year were spent adjusting to that, while Baby M became Lil’ M and started running around. We missed walking entirely it feels like.

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.
