He in his House??

Sunday Mornings at our house are chaotic...always the rush to get to church. This past Sunday was not any different than usual except we were running about 30 min behind schedule, so it was even more crazy.  The girls of course were not able to find the perfect thing to wear and Kerrigan our youngest daughter decided she would just wear a tank top...(LOL) ....and we had to sort that out...then of course the hair brush has left the building once again!!!  I am always always the last one to be able to get to the shower, get dressed and run (literally) out the door.  Preslee says to me, Mommy we are very late, are we still going??? I said yes baby we always go to God's House, even late. ( In the background Zeb is taking all of this in of course, while watching Mickey Mouse) ....so Finally we are packed in the car and we get to church ..exactly 30 min late..and it is of course pouring buckets....OF COURSE IT IS!!!  So Daddy pulls us up to the door..and Lil Zeb says ...Mommy we are at God's House!!!! WHERE'S GOD???? He in his HOUSE?? ..... I was so taken with the fact, that my lil 2 year old listened   and he really expected to SEE GOD at his house, our church.  If only we could have that mind set, that expectation...for GOD to be so real that we See him, Feel Him, Know Him, and Trust Him! .....That broke through all the crazy chaos of my morning and it was like God saying......Do you expect me?? Do you expect what I am going to do in your life today?? Lord, Please let me have that mindset of a child..that I Trust you and I am waiting and expecting and believing in you and your word and your Amazing ever present GRACE in my Life!!! .....My answer....Yes Zebee...God is in his house..He lives in your heart.....Our Hearts...God is here...Let's Go inside.  ~~~

Family Fun

We had such a great time this past Labor Day Weekend at the Beach with our family. It was just a relaxing time and enjoying the kids.  I just want to close my eyes and see my girls laughing and playing in the waves and to see the wonder in Zeb's little eyes as he says "Wook Mommy I found a shark tooth". It really wasn't but since that was what his Daddy was doing then of course he was too...so precious.  The ocean always makes me sit back in wonder. I look out across it and see the vastness of it and wonder how is it that there are people in this world who don't believe in God. I love to sit on the beach and pray and just sit there and think of the Blessings in my life from my Almighty God. It brings me back to where I should be, in awe and worship of him.

Zeb absolutely loved the submarine pool...he crawled around the pool over and over and then he decided to jump head first out of the submarine into the water...scared his mother so bad, you can probally count the 6 new gray hairs I now have..I had to throw off my shoes, throw my phone and go fish him out of the water. He of course was fine and wanted immediately back in the water!! Mommy wanted to coddle him..but he would have NONE of that! He is such a BIG BOY all of a sudden. I do not like it!!!

The girls of course are my little fish and they love the water, any of it..especially jumping off their Daddy's shoulders into the water. I watch them and think of how they  have grown and wonder how much longer they will be able to jump off Daddy's shoulders without seriously injuring him.  It is wonderful to see them grow but it is also sad because I want to keep them little as long as I can.

Of course now we are home and back in full swing...Summer Break is officially over and I long for those long summer days with my children, we had so much fun and made so many memories.. I try to make every day count..and I try to count my blessings every days. I learned a good lesson two years ago, we are never promised tommorow, life can change in a second, so hold onto it with all you got, love your husband, hug your children and Thank God for every sunrise.  Till Next Time.....Be Blessed!!!
