It's been a few years since I've blogged. Honestly, life has been busy! These girls are growing fast, and I'm trying to keep up with the changing seasons. It's a joy to be Jesse's wife, a homeschooling mom, and have a filled with friends and church activities. I'm posting tonight, and hope to do more in the near future.
Tomorrow is officially the first day of Spring, but we enjoyed the peak of the Cherry Blossoms in DC today.
Can you spy the White House in the background?
These blossoms peak out of any crevice of the tree. They are bursting with life and can't wait to do what they were created for- blooming. God gives us so many pictures of Himself, and of our Christian walk throughout creation. It's treasure to stop and take the time to reflect on it. We are called to bloom where we are planted. We give Him the most glory when we can rejoice in the midst of trouble, obey in the face of temptation, trust when circumstances are uncertain, and worship Him when we are tempted to serve ourselves. We can only live in a way that honors Him with His strength- trying this on our own is pure foolishness. Can a flower live without being connected to the source of life? Can we flourish and have eternal hope without being rooted and grounded in Christ? There is no other way.
Sweet Savannah. Nine years old. She loves pretend, taekwondo, writing stories and songs, reading Boxcar Children, singing in the choir, and riding her bike.
My six year old baby, Geneva. She is precious and brings us so many grey hairs and joy! She loves riding her bike, reading, coloring, playing pretend, taekwondo, and snacking.
My young lady Maddie is now eleven years old!! She is a delight to be around- she makes excellent conversation, enjoys cooking, swimming, playing games, and reading. She is very responsible and trustworthy.
What a joy it is to spend each day with them!
