My Everyday

The last couple months have been challenging on every level. Uncomfortable, stretching, messy times.

DSC_0063aPhysical demands like I’ve never experienced or would have ever imagined, emotional confusion, and spiritual desolation that took a lot of patience and perseverance and waiting on the Lord.

DSC_1274aThat His Love and His grace always bears fruit in due season.DSC_1627It is no surprise that I love being a mom and a Stay at Home mom at that. Ever since our Engagement we used to talk and dream about this life, lots of kids, the ability to be home with them and be the primary teachers in all things and with God’s grace, cultivating a home that is a school of virtue. And still, when I see these images, it’s hard to believe this is my life. Maybe it’s because it happened so fast 😉 Or maybe it’s because the more He stretches me, the more I grow, and the more I learn, the more I realize how little I know and understand about Him.

About His goodness.
