learning and fun

So the projects have begun!

Painting in the bathroom went underway tonight after kiddos went down for bed. 

Kitchen patching starts tomorrow and hopefully the second coat of bathroom paint will be done. 

Projects are tiring! Just even shopping for the right stuff is draining. 

On a different note, I have been praying that God show me something that I need to work on in the spirit. Well, he has made one thing clear, I have NO patience :( and as a mom, that is not a good thing! I am quick tempered and it's in my nature to become stressed easily. 

One verse that I have been thinking and meditating on is: 

1 Peter 4:11
If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

This takes a lot of caution to stop and think to myself "is that of God, nope its impatience." I also have a quick tongue (if anyone knows me; that. is. not. a. surprise!)

I usually am pretty good ad apologizing to my 2 year old (can you say humbling?), but I shouldn't have to in the first place. 

But the best is, that this all humbles myself to bring God glory. When I stop and think before I speak, God gets the glory, because it is not my quick tongue. But as well, when I have to humble myself to a 2 year old, its giving God the glory because I am listening to the Spirit encouraging me to do so. 

Even so, my children love me and God gives grace in abundance (thank you Abba, father!). Which leads me to pictures of our fun times! 

I love this girl!!

Her first tare and glue project! 


Handsome man. Those big blue eyes are going to melt a women's heart someday, until then, they melt mine everyday! 

Having some fun in daddy and mommy's bed. They a pair of very cute kids! 

Look at Gray's expression

These next two are really neat! The first is Nevaeh and the second is Gray, look at the resemblance! I took one of Gray and remembered I took one of Nevaeh too a long time ago. Nevaeh was 9 months I think. Gray is 7 here. 

PROJECTS! can you see the bright yellow?

To a beautiful green!

  1. House improvements yeah!!! Quick question, how did you create the tabs on top? Like the Home, Design, My Story, etc tabs? I was trying to figure this out since I'm not on Facebook for the week, I have a tish more time and though this would be a fun addition to my blog. If you have time to explain it that'd be great, if not, no biggy. If so though, my email is
