Willing to Submit


So this has been a crazy season in my life. Having five kids has been totally overwhelming me.
*sidenote. I hate writing posts like this because I am so richly blessed. There are SO many people that have it worse off than me. It's hard to imagine someone complaining who has five beautiful kids, a loving husband, a house for their family, running water, all the things. I know so many who suffer in major, life-changing ways. But I need to record these feelings, and these are the experiences that have been given to me.

Pretty sure it will be spring in heaven


Back in May I went for a walk in my favorite park at the height of spring. We live in a small(ish) town, and sometimes I have the park to myself. The blossoms danced prettily in the gusts of wind, the sun played peek-a-boo with the petals as I snapped picture after picture, trying to capture this beautiful, beautiful world and the euphoria I felt. I'm pretty sure it will be spring in heaven.

Where to look in times of trouble



It used to be I would look in the wrong place when I was discouraged and needed answers. When I encountered a day that shook me, a day where I wondered what I was doing wrong as a mother or how I could be inspired to be different, I would read blogs or instagram, searching for something I could hold on to. Someone who had 'figured it out' that would help me figure my life out too.

Where Negative Thoughts Come From



Negative thoughts come from Satan. They are not created in your own mind.
