I can’t believe it’s the last Friday of April already! These months are flying by!
So here’s my month at a glance (if you follow me on Instagram – most likely you’ve seen many of these photos).
Last month we took a vacation and celebrated the kid’s birthdays there. So when we got home – we celebrated the kid’s 9th and 11th birthdays with extended family. This was their cake.
And this was the family out to dinner.
I also had a WONDERFUL weekend with some of my FAVORITE bloggers! Karen Ehman was in town from Michigan (giving me bunny ears – stinker!!!) with her assistant Kim and they joined the Ohio Bloggers (Clare – Peak313.com, Ruth – TheBetterMom.com and Janelle – ComfyintheKitchen.com) for a weekend of fellowship and fun.
Alex went on a road trip with Daddy to pick up some oil with their semi.
Here Alex is learning “How to Properly Strap on a Load 101” Lol!
The joys of homeschooling 🙂 !
And then there were sad goodbyes over at GoodMorningGirls.org when I shared I will no longer be a part of the writing team. After much prayer and wrestling with God, I have a peace that it is time I step away from this ministry. It is a ministry I will miss deeply but I feel so blessed to have been a part of. Are you a GMG? I love you guys!!! Stay in God’s word and keep pressing on!
Then there was Easter! Hooray!
HE IS RISEN!!
There were resurrection rolls!
And Easter baskets, church and worship!
And family photos!
And time spent with my built in best friends – my sisters.
Friends, I share my life with you because I want to do life open…but I don’t want to ever portray a perfect life. Behind closed doors there are hard things I face every.single.month –hurts, tragedies, burdens and worries that threaten to swallow me up. I don’t have pictures for this war within my mind and heart but often they come out as I write months and years later after I have processed them. If you are facing hard things today – remember this truth:
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 8:37-39
