Fullness of Joy in the Every Day Moments

Sorry we've been missing a while...I've had a lot going on (baby showers, speaking engagements, and moms connection), but the REALLY GOOD STUFF has been doing life and celebrating the joy in what some might call the mundane.  I do have "blah" days as a mom, but most of the time I choose to renew my mind----that every day has been a gift from God---- given to me to do this.......

*sigh* at how cute 3 brothers with fresh new haircuts can be on a warm winter day....

*drop my jaw in awe* as I observe my youngest collecting paper, 
scissors and crayons to start his own art activity.....

*Salivate* as the appetizer is being served at fun our double date!

*Marvel* as my two year old has his first headwound and we wind up in urgent care.  
No tears after getting stitches!  


 *Chuckle* as my middle child is too cool for the dentist.

*smile* when I think of women who want to go deeper!


* adore* these little faces in the neighborhood and 
how they are there to celebrate each others birthdays.

*Admire* my husband as he creates a hard work ethic in our children, which is so counter-cultural.
He made them shovel for a really long time!

*Etch into my memory forever* these moments of pure creamy delight! 
And...record a very rare moment of sharing. LOL.

*Crack up* when I see the little fiercest super heroes at our play date....

 Really, I just can not contain my joy at the every day moments that make up this abundant life. 
Psalm 16:11 You make known to me the path of life;
    in your presence there is fullness of joy;
    at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
