Wisdom to Live By

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths."
Proverbs 3:5-6

I need Thee every hour!

So true!  As I woke up at 3:45 a.m., I laid there in silence, feeling my little girl going crazy because I had rolled over.  At 4:30, I gave up, got up, made some coffee and realized I hadn't really given up going back to sleep.  I was being called.  God said, "Come and chat with Me."  So I did.  Made my cup of coffee, sat down with my Bible and devotional and did my best to listen.  It's amazing that even in the silent morning hours when you know you're going to be so exhausted that day, God can give you such an amazing peace.  He says rest on me.  And this song came to mind.  I need Thee every hour, God, even in the wee hours of the morning.  So the next time you can't sleep, try having an early morning chat with God.  All for now.

June Update Part 1

Yes, I know it's July, but lots of things happening and it seems to stay constantly busy around here.  I did, however, want to stop and update some of our June.  The princess of the household turned 4.  I cannot believe it.  It seems like time is getting away from us.  I try to embrace every moment with these kiddos and thank God for every second because they're just growing too fast.  We celebrated in true princess fashion with cute clothes and beautiful mini cupcakes.  We rounded it out with her own little photo shoot (the advantage of having a photographer as a mommy ;P).  Here are some pics from her birthday and her photo shoot.  I hope you enjoy.  Look for part 2 soon.

All for now.
