embrace the ordinary // time

Time has been passing, our boys have been growing, our family has been living, and I have been learning. But, I haven't been blogging. In fact, I haven't even been sharing Project 52 photos even though I have been taking them. Our computer has taken a turn into major slacker mode and if there's one thing that deters me from computer usage is a slow as molasses computer. Even still, we've been making memories, spending time with grandparents and family, and just got back from a mini trip with friends.

Life lessons have been sprinkled throughout it all. I've been slowly but surely gathering myself time and time again. Lesson after lesson, failure after failure and success after success.

As I'm sitting here and as I was sitting last night all I could think about is that He has come, He has conquered, and He will come again. I'm trying to let this sink in. I'm trying to focus on hope. Hope is real. Hope for tomorrows made new is real. Hope for beginning again is what I'm trying to embrace. To let be my reality.

Because I do stumble as much as I do good. I am a mother and I am a wife. I am a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I have these sweet little souls that I want to teach, guide, and encourage. I want them to know all these truths that I'm trying to live. I want them to see how it plays out. I want them to see that the evil one never wins. No matter how much we struggle or fight. Christ has won and always will hold us safe in His Loving Heart.

Hoping to find my way back to this little space of mine this week and beyond. For any and all who stuck around, thank you!!!! Our little family scrapbook that has me continually seeking beauty during good times and bad has been missed by me! So I'm excited. <3 p="">


  1. <3 happy to have you writing again, friend :)

  2. Hi, just found your blog and it's lovely. As parents it seems time just passes by faster and faster.... some days I so wish I could slow it down :-) And I love scrapbooking but I am very far behind... On my to do list though, lol. Have a wonderful day!


  3. What a beautiful reminder that He has indeed conquered! I so often get caught up in my daily little struggles as a wife and mother that I lose focus of the big picture and my motivation for it all!

  4. HOPE! Thank you, Amanda. I so needed to read this today. He is victorious - He is our hope. Thank you, and God bless you. Looking forward to reading more ... whenever you get around to it. ;)

  5. <3 The struggle is real, isn't it? How to balance, how to be authentic, how to guide our littles...I think we're constantly in the thick of it, because just as we feel we've hit a groove, a kid grows into a new stage! ;)


Comment love makes me happy!
