my girlsLife has been really messy here lately. Life throws you curve balls and you really can’t be prepared for all of it. Through all of it though, I have seen God’s goodness and nothing but. He gives more grace, love, peace, and forgiveness beyond anything we deserve. I am in awe of it all. Sometimes you don’t know how God will do it, but he does always prove himself trustworthy.

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

Glow is a smart girl. She observes and then does it, and now she’s learning how to stick up for herself being the baby of 4.

We heard Soul randomly say, “A noun is a person, place, thing or idea.” So cute! She must really be listening when I’m doing school with the big girls.

True and Brave’s penmanship has been improving so much.

I love my friends and my church family so much. We rejoice with each others’ joys and we mourn with each others’ sorrows. It is a great to be part of such a loving and grace giving community. I’m so thankful.

Meeting this cute little one for the first time made my heart so happy.

Adding this to my family meal planning.

Love this woman’s braid. I wish I had some fancy braiding skills.

Oh and I have totally been loving the winter we are experiencing here in SoCal. I’ve pretty much been in sweats all day, but that’s perfectly alright with me.

My heart has been all over the place this past week, so I’m looking forward to this new week. God has proven that his mercies are definitely new every morning and that when we need it, he will give us the grace and strength we need to press on. There have been a lot of growing pains going on, but growth is always a good thing. Isn’t it?!

    I pray this when in pain:
    Jesus, I trust in You. Have mercy on me, a sinner.

    I know how you feel about feeling all over the place…I’m right there too! 🙂 Hopefully things will calm down a bit and you find ways to find some inner peace.
    On a side note the chicken recipe looks yummy – will have to give that a try!
