It has been such a long time. I have been having way to much fun with my kids. We have been learning how to swim and going on vacations with family and friends. The above picture is so precious to me that is mom who is one of my favorite people. She definitely has influenced my life in many ways along this awesome Journey. (I have to tell you this!) I love fishing always have and always will. But on this trip it was just women. The men didn’t think I could clean the fish. Let me tell you I can do anything I put my mind to. But God did send help. Some friend of mine came through and stayed the night with us on there way to her Mom’s. Her husband was a ton of help. I was totally about to do it though!!! I totally feel that there are just things men were made to do. But cleaning fish is not one of them!
It is also planting season. Brandon has been really busy working his two jobs. God has been so gracious though. The picture is of Kelby and her first tractor ride with DADDY! Who is totally her Hero.
Brandon also had a little health scare. What he thought was his heart turned out to be acid reflux. It was very scary for the both of us but God has really brought the best out of the both of us through that experience. I have a whole new husband full of life and laughter. I think he always thought he would die of a heart attack at a young age. The Doctor told him not a chance. He is happier than ever.
I had to add this photo. They are growing so fast and learning so much. This picture shows me how awesome God is and how important our influence everyday is on the two precious people God gave Brandon and me. Yes he gave them to us to teach them how to become successful adults. I love the stages they are in right now Brynae is learning everyday. Kelby vocabulary is in repeat mode.
I am going to leave you with the verse that has been on my heart lately? Matthew 18: 1-4
“at the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, Saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? and jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
The gift of a child is so amazing. They love unconditionally and are molding constantly as they learn. We as humans go through so many phases in life. We have to consult God in every phase he will guide and mold us through each phase. We have to humble ourselves and open our hearts and minds to listen and learn as children do so naturally. That is my challenge to you today and everyday open your heart and mind like a child seeing our world for the first time. Remember what it was like to see a bird fly or to play with a Rollie Polly bug. Be Blessed!
