We had a month full of work, adventure, JOY and growth. I hit my event goal on 10/21 and took that week to regroup with the kids. They missed me, I missed them and Whit...
Now I feel like the page on the calendar turns and we enter such a special season. I want to be mindful of the season and mindful of God. I have a lot of worry on my shoulders about some family decisions and also this season of our children seeing greed in this holiday season and teaching them the difference in what we are urged to do and what we should be doing. I want to teach them the act of selflessness and giving others gifts and how much more rewarding it is than receiving. I want Him to lead the way in these teachings. I also want to do better in finding everyday joy and knowing that He will carry me.
Work is good. Whits work is good. Our family is good and as we enter November I feel so thankful. Thankful for my family, my faith, my love for Jesus and my love for this season. Gratitude brings joy to my heart and it's even easier to be thankful when I think of that November three years ago when I got that faint pink line the day after Thanksgiving. November was always special to me- but feeling thankful was bursting out of my heart and burning my eyes that year. I was thankful to be pregnant, but little did I know, I would be thankful x 3. We know lots of pregnant family members and friends and I am so thankful they get to experience this season of joy while they carry their own sweet bundle. Such a special time.
Joy is my word for November. A word I am choosing to focus on. Not because I am not joyful, but because in life group we talked about how God commands us to be joyful. I think I am more "glass half empty", when I should be finding joy in every situation. When my kids are all crying and I am sweating and we are in Dallas, four hours past nap time- I need to take a breath and find joy in the fact that I have three crying kiddos and in two more hours I will have a camera full of memories to upload and three cribs to put them all in....

For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
Hope you guys are ready for this cool front. I went to the store and my basket looked like I was about to hibernate. I think I might after my event. Have an awesome week.
