~Summer of GROWTH~

How to even summarize where I've been....hmmmm...
  • My kids are amazing....I've had such a fun summer with them.  They've grown.  They are so conversational. We've swam.  We've collected and traded silly bands with all our friends. (OK seriously...how BRILLIANT was that invention?!) We've just hung out.  No big plans.  No over-booked summer.  So sweet. 

  • My relationship with Jesus has grown IMMENSELY this summer.  I cannot even express to you the precious time of growth I have had...and am in.  Our family is still in financial distress...and all I can tell you is that honestly, I wouldn't trade the spiritual growth for all the financial comforts in the world. God is utterly and completely amazing.  He has shown up in amazing ways.  This book, my Bible Study group and being intentional about memorizing God's promises have been significant in my life this summer. 
  • It's also been a continuing journey of hearing God for what His plan is for our family....do I work outside the home?  Or do I work inside the home?  That's another post for another day.
Summer is coming to an end.  Can you believe it?  I hope to be able to post more now that my little men will be in school soon.
Until next time~

I wish I was one of your cute boys. I need an underbooked summer. How wonderful your spiritual growth is blossoming. You are always faithful.

Hope to see some cute pictures soon.
