be encouraged

This is one of my favorite promises.
There are times in this life when I need 
to be carried, sustained, and rescued...
when I just can't handle it all on my own.
Have you felt that recently?
Do you need rescue?
I believe that the God who made you 
also cares about you. He knows exactly 
what you need, and promises to help. 
And how do I know this?
Because He's carrying me too.

Hope your Friday has 
some cuteness in it.  :)

life lately (according to instagram)

Spring is here, and it feels like life is picking up...
like we're coming out of hibernation!

We've had lots of chances to hang out
with the hubs' family lately, which is a treat.

We've had some silly fun...playtime with our little niece
and a very relaxed night with our small group.

The longer we look for a house, the more I want 
to get a dog...which is a little dangerous.  :)

Lots of little joys lately pretty fresh flowers 
& frivolous magazines about princesses.  (thanks, babe!)

Life's not perfect, but we certainly have 
plenty to be thankful for!

finding fun


 Sometimes life as a grown up isn't fun.

I know there are lots of good things
to be thankful for, and certainly plenty
of little joys and delights...but sometimes 
I find myself not having much fun.

 This week I was reminded that there's
 a simple solution to that problem:
go to a playground with a toddler.

 Swinging is like flying - so exciting!

Going down the slide is so cool that 
it's worth doing at least 20 times!
(bonus: we always giggle!) 

Climbing rope ladders is dangerous
and on the edge!

And when all is said and done,
we're a little tired, and totally ready
to go home for a cookie.  :)
