Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

The least of these

I'm up again late into the night with a sick baby. They've all taken their turn at this thing and it's finally just a little cough left with Eva. It's been a long two weeks and as we are all getting well I'm so grateful and yet as I sit here watching my tiniest one making sure she can sleep peacefully despite her leftover cough, I'm overwhelmed at what a job I have. Long nights, long days, little rest, BUT what a privilege to give my life to such a cause. The Bible says "if you've done it to one of the least of these, you've done it unto me"..., that means as I stay up late at night and hold a little one comforting their  cries or just loving on them, I'm doing it to God. He sees children as that important. They are precious in His kingdom. My work here is not in vain, it's the work of God, it's the work of the saints who've gone before. It's the only work that really counts in the end. It's a privileged and amazing task.

Holiday weekend

We ended our holiday weekend with a trip to the Colleyville Nature Center. We've never been here and we are wondering why... This place is amazing. 46 acres, 3 gorgeous ponds... Wonderful!!! Coming back for sure!

Shaving cream

Do you see the progression? Hahaha! They told me it was "the best day of our lives"!!!! Score one for mom!!

Corn maze

We had our annual visit to our local pumpkin patch where they have the coolest corn maze. It's different every year and it is so fun. We go after dark and use flashlights and have one of our most favorite times of the year! We've been going for 4 years now! Love this time of year, happy fall!!

Sharpie tees

Making sharpie tees! 

Sometime there are just moments in life when you step back and realize that if it's weren't for God some things would never happen. These pictures are the direct result of prayers being answered. To see these sweet cousins together is an incredible blessing to not only my heart but especially to my parents heart! A happy day indeed.

Five months

Somehow this sweet girl got to be FIVE months but if only feels like about two tops. She is such a precious bright smile in our lives. Our incredible Eva Faith!
