Just some thoughts...

We are publically dedicating Audrey to the Lord tomorrow.  This doesn't save her, or make her "spiritual" or anything like that.  It is a commitment to raising her in a Godly home, training her in the ways of the Lord.  Committing ourselves to teaching and training her-not relying on anyone else to do it for us.

We don't take this lightly.  In a way, we are asking for accountability in this by doing it publically.  We will ask our church body to help us in this journey.  We are blessed to have so much family here to be a part of this day as well.

Where has the last 7 months gone?  Life seems to whirl by. 

So thankful for these moments I am getting to spend with my girls.  So thankful that I get to "stay home" (when am I ever home????) and be with them.  Don't get me wrong, some days, I would relish the opportunity to go to work to get a break.  But I would miss too many toothless grins and incredibly spunky faces.

I don't seem to find too much time to blog these days, but that's ok.  I'm trying to spend my extra moments making memories with my girls, and taking care of our home so it is a refuge for all who enter in.  

God is teaching me to just take a few moments each day to be thankful.  Thankful for even the hard things.  For the small things.  For the great things.  There is ALWAYS something we can be thankful for.
