From His Word

Joshua 24:15
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Prayer and Praise

  • God's Perfect Provision
  • Allow us to teach our children His ways
  • His pefect plan for children (brothers & sisters?)

C.J.'s Adventure Birthday!

Hahaha! This is a really bad photo - but you get the idea that the 'bigs' got to help dad make the 'stations' in their p.j.'s outside in the dark the night before the party!

Birthday boy was a little bit shy....but had a ball!

Jacob, Mya, big.

Cousin Zaire!

And birth family from Denver came to make it super special! Family Rocks.

Cousin Zamiah!

Uncle Javarri! and Shayla came as well.

Thanking God for a five year old boy....and for all his FAMILY!!  Blessed beyond measure.

Living the life!

So....Marand gets the 'dad' award...He.Is.Super.

and can this boy be ready for kindergarten graduation?!?  Yea, Isaac!

and the 'baby' has got the 'bigs' wrapped around her little finger!

So after much prayer, it seems to be a 'closed door' on the garage building for now...we'll just keep that 'dream' in the back pocket for another time. I'm so thankful for the ways God directs my steps. 'His word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path'.

 It’s the week before Mother’s Day and most of our kids don’t have a clue, but our husbands are starting to panic about making the day special, so that’s sort of fun.

There’s a lot of pressure this time of year for moms, too.

We are on the home stretch of another school year and we’ve lost the will to continue. We can smell summer. We long for its freedom and are terrified of it for the same reason.

We are wondering how we got here so quickly with babies in the nest or teens learning to fly out of it. We spend a childhood building a home, and just when we think we’ve got it figured out, we look around and it’s empty. We raise these babies–not to keep, but to teach them how to leave. It’s the perfect heartbreak.

I’m no parenting expert, but one time a child of mine did say that I was the best mother she ever had. So, there’s that. I love being a mom.

At the end of the day–no matter how many mismatched socks are in the laundry basket or how many eye rolls I’ve endured, I am glad I said yes to motherhood. But it’s no surprise that motherhood is hard–hard like crying yourself to sleep. Hard like second-guessing every decision. Hard like catching someone else’s bodily fluids with you hands. Hard like giving up pie. "A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” -Tenneva Jordan

Field Trip Fun!

I'm SO THANKFUL, and praising God this day for support and help in this home-school journey! One of our moms organized this trek to the 'Frog and Toad' play in Denver yesterday....I got to stay home and keep 'littles' and we all had a ball! Blessed beyond measure.
