Friday Blessings

What are you thankful for? My faith, love and grace of our Lord! My awesome hubby, who is hard working and great father! For friends and family! My church and MOM Group! Warm bed and food in the kitchen! Slowing down! Good books! Flannel pjs and soft blankets! Even though I don't like cold snowy weather, the kids do! We had our first snow here in Kentucky, a bit early! The hubby and kids put up our outside Christmas lights! Our baby girl lost her first tooth! Abigail had a fun horse lesson this week and guided the mini horse by herself. We are taking a somewhat of a school week break this week. Though Abigail really just rather do school, but breaks are important too. So we can all refresh and refuel! This mama needed it!

A few snapshots this week:

Encouraging reads:

Love this idea:
Mothers may want to find room to breathe, to weep, to panic. But they don’t want it to end–this delivering, shaping, cheering, loving, bringing life into the world.

I treasure my cup of coffee, not despite the fact that I drink it daily, but also because of it’s everydayness. I delight in the fact that this good thing, this cup of joy, is woven into my days. And I love my marriage for it’s everydayness, too. That this sacramental grace flows through the days and week and years.


There’s nothing wrong with feasting – unless we don’t ever fast. We’re meant to take-it-in then put-it-out. The best way to tell others about Jesus is to put skin on the scriptures.

Whatever season you’re in, know that God has you there for a reason. To prepare your heart for what’s to come next. To strengthen you and develop the gifts and skills you’ll need to do even more glorious work for His kingdom. Take time to dig into His Word, grow roots, and be nourished. Maybe you feel like God is calling you to lay down some idols you’ve held on to for far too long – like those leaves hanging on for just one more day of glory instead of falling to make room for what’s next, or maybe He’s asking you for a step of faith – in your season of growth, trust that God knows where He’s taking you, and live obediently so that you might produce the kind of fruit that glorifies Christ.

Take what you can’t handle and put it in His hands.

None of us need to have it all together. We just need to remember we’re all better together
