I’m interrupting our regularly scheduled program of Weekend Links with a post to tell you what I’m into right now.
What has my family been up to in April?
Read on …
You can catch up with previous months here:
In Our Home:
The big news from this month is that not only did we sell our house in Colorado, but we found a house in Virginia!
Our house in Colorado will close at the end of May, and we’ll be able to move into our Virginia home toward the end of June. We’re just waiting on paperwork and time to pass in both places!
The Virginia home is a dream home for us, and I cannot wait to get in it!! I’m in awe that this home even exists.
For now though, Spring has sprung, and we are really enjoying a climate free of snow!
The joy of these two is truly contagious! They fight and bicker like any set of siblings, but at the core, they are best friends. Truly.
Sam never looked back, and Timmy rides the strider every single day with his brother.
Did I mention best friends? Okay. Just checking.
It’s not been an easy transition, but it’s been worth it.
Very, very worth it.
In My Heart:
Do you ever have seasons of your Christian walk where you just feel like you’re not growing or changing, but then you realize that you’ve come leaps and bounds?
I called out an SOS this month with some friends. Here’s my cry for help:
I’m calling out an SOS for prayers. Things are just rough right now. We’re just barely holding on by a thread at the end of each day.
We’re learning just how ugly we really are underneath as the sin sponge keeps getting squeezed.
I know this is all part of God’s grand purpose. I know that it will be used for His glory, and I know that I will GROWWWWWW through this time. But the chiseling is exhausting, defeating, and in my flesh, completely unwanted.
We could use some bolstering prayers right now for strength and endurance.
This is part of faith. This is part of risk taking. This is part of trusting a big God who will never lead us where He will not keep us.
We’ve been here before after every leap of faith. It’s like God tests us to be sure we’re REALLY relying on Him before He brings the rainbow.
I’ll be honest.
This is the hardest it’s ever been circumstantially.
There’s a lot more at stake with two children to feed. But I”m thankful that I have nowhere else to turn but TO Him.
I don’t know if I’ve come leaps and bounds, but as I look back over the trials of this month, I’m very aware of God’s grace.
As a family, we’ve had to dig into the hard moments of life and find grace for the moment. At times this seems completely impossible, but faith drives us forward and grace keeps us each and every time without fail.
Remember this, too, when you see the next picture of what looks like a well, put together mom. She struggles too. Just like you. You’re not alone either.
What I’m Reading:
What I’m Watching
The modules I’ve watched have been informative and easy to understand. I do come to the class with some basic knowledge of natural remedies, which I have found helpful to getting even more out of this course.
The course moves quickly because they pack in a TON of information. I have to make myself slow down and not learn more than I can implement. I’m giving myself plenty of time to process each module and create a plan of action for my children.
The first thing I’m working on is better sleep and seasonal allergies for my children, and the tips I’ve picked up so far have already helped.
I highly recommend this eCourse! It’s invaluable for parents who want to learn to deal with common ailments naturally.
