He always brightens my day...
Even on days when I feel sorry for myself because God is trying to teach me lessons that I am too stubborn to learn...
Why do I insist on trying to do everything on my own when God is there?  Why do I think that relationships with people are going to make me happy when the only relationship that I need is with Him (the one that I seem to neglect the most?)  He is the only One that will never let me down.  He is the only One that is always there.  He is the One who gave me my beautiful son and wonderful husband.  He is the One who has blessed me "beyond measure."  And yet, I don't put Him first.

And there is the house.  The house that I want to sell but can't until God decides to bring us a buyer.  He is definitely teaching me patience and increasing my faith in this area.  I have to rely on Him because I have no choice.  I can't make my house sell. 

I'm not really sure what direction I wanted to take this post, but I just wanted to share a little of what is on my heart.  (That's what a blog is for, right?)  And here I thought it was for posting an endless number of photos of my kid :p
I've just been more aware lately of what is really important in life.  I hope to put more energy towards those things starting with my relationship with God.
He has given me so much, including one of the best gifts I have ever received...
What more could I ask for? :)

  1. Great post! I think we all get here every once and a while. Simple truths that sometimes we forget until we are forced to remember! I'll be praying for you, girl! P.S. Awesome pictures! Seriously...if you gave a class, I would drive to TN to take it! :)

  2. Thank you, Ashley! :) And I really appreciate the prayers!
