This summer and fall brought a lot of changes in our household. God led us down a new path and blessed us along the way. We are already so blessed…daily…to breathe, to walk, to see, to love…but God spoils us. When we follow His plan, He seems to add even more blessings along the way. I’m not at all saying if you are going through a difficult time you aren’t following God’s plan…by no means…but there are times when you feel extra blessed for following His ways.
However…after such blessings we seemed to be attacked a little: The month of September brought us some of the following:
Bees infested our daughter’s room…we are still battling the last (hopefully!) few!
A leaky bathroom pipe caused trouble for our living room.
My husband had foot surgery…
Among other normal life drama… 😉
God got us through every step of the way. He holds this world, He holds each moment of our lives, He is BIGGER than any attacks that come our way.
God is good all the time and all the time God is good! Praise God in the good and hard times. 🙂
Sometimes the little things in life prove to be the biggest and best blessings and joys.
My youngest has an old soul as some would say. He is goofy and crazy and rotten and young, but in certain things he has an understanding, a forgiveness and an almost wise. When my daughter was sad a couple months ago about giving up her old bike (she could ride the new one, but it still made her nervous and the old one needed to go) he took the bike and said he would take care of it and moved it away from her sight. So sweet, but not surprising.
Our cat is very sick and likely not going to make it much longer…all of the kids brought her their favorite comfort items and gently tucked them around her.
My youngest told me the other day that I was his best girl friend. 🙂
A few weeks ago we were coming home from a family outing and someone was throwing out a great air hockey table…which is now in our possession.
My two second graders had to write about someone they admire and my son chose his dad and my daughter chose me. 🙂
And of course endless hugs and kisses from all of them. Life’s blessings are so sweet and simple, we just need to grasp them and cherish them.
And just to add a little turmoil to the life’s sweetness, but again on a very simple note…no crisis. My lawn mower starter is my enemy. It starts wonderfully for my husband but it doesn’t like me…and I do nothing different. Oh well! After 20…yes 20 minutes of trying to get it to start…would you believe the sky opened up and rained on me? 😛
