Back on the island 🌺🏝 It feels so good to be back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Set an alarm at 6 so I can have some quiet time with Jesus. Between 4:30 and 5:45, both girls found themselves in bed with me. Right after I get out of bed at 6, Addison decides to fall out of my bed. I then found myself in Abbie’s bed playing “holy holy” (addisons new favorite song) and hoping she goes back to bed, but we all know that’s wishful thinking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s so easy for me to look at certain situations and think like they’re such a drag or even a hindrance (the situation, not the girls). But Jesus, in his mercy reminded me something. I’m so thankful for His sacrifice on the cross, because of it, God is able to meet me anywhere, we are now his temple, not a building built by men, but a body built by Him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He is everywhere I want Him to be. That place can be on the couch, at my dining room table, in my office, in the kitchen while doing the dishes, in bed late at night or middle of the night. He is there when the girls won’t go back to bed and I need to cuddle in bed with them. He is there ready to meet me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every Easter is different for Alex and me, but this one might be the most different as we still haven’t found our home church to get involved in and serve. But I’m grateful that He is present and moving in our lives. He is here ready to spend time with his children. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m often left speechless at the thought that I, a mere human on earth, get the talk to God, the creator of Earth and everything around it, and He talks with me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know this might be such a deep question for some of you but I wanna know, because I really want to know all of you at a deeper level! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨What is your favorite thing about God?✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since I don’t like really posting on Sundays and we all know that Satan gets fooled, because even though Jesus died on the cross, tomorrow, on Easter Sunday, He rises from the dead, and walks out of that tomb! What a day it’ll be! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Easter my friends!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hey guys! I know I’ve been a little MIA over here these last few days, but it’s for good reason! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m in Phoenix visiting family and celebrating my cousins and brother in law’s decision (Nadine, Filip, and Benny) to get baptized this past Sunday! So proud of all three of them and the life changing decision they made to follow Jesus all their lives! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And obviously there’s been a lot of play dates in the last few days and something I’ve never had to deal with before... ALLERGIES! Y’all, it feels like I got the flu or something! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you deal with AZ allergies, what are your remedies?
A bridal bouquet to make all the other bouquets jealous! @mishabogojel and @flori_chelmagan teamed up together to do the florals for this wedding and I am obsessed! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Elegant, feminine, and just the right amount of greens! What are your favorite flowers in a bridal bouquet?
At the beginning of last year I made it a top priority to instill office hours. Which means that I work from 9am to 2pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; Tuesdays and Thursdays are family days, Saturdays are wedding days and Sundays are rest days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now how amazing is that Alex’s days off are Thursday and Friday! God is so good! He thought of everything! Love spending our days off together, relaxing, talking and watching our girls grow in front of our eyes!
In most of the United States it is bed time right now but we are in the car on the way to Chucky Cheese to celebrate our sweet and feisty Addison! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cannot believe she is 2 already but it feels like she’s always been part of our family! We love you, our little sour patch kid, and hoping that the terrible twos aren’t gonna be too terrible! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ xo, Mommy, Daddy and Abbie ❤️
I’m not one to post horizontal photos but these girls were FIRE!! #bridesmaidgoals ALL THE WAY! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
