Some people have beautiful, well thought out and perfectly displayed still life photos..ones that evoke calm and beauty...mostly those snapshots are more about what we want our lives to be all about...not necessarily the way life is actually lived out. Life at my house just isn't that put together...it's messy and less than picture perfect...just like my heart.
|Always thankful for Costco and Sam's club!|
|Getting ready for the morning routine..|
|The amount of syringes used to give medications in one day...just for Isaac. Decided to get a little creative to make washing syringes more fun!|
|and feeding pumps, oh my!|
|An average pharmacy haul...and this occurs weekly at least.|
|Maisy loves going underwater...she is even smiling!|
Create in me a pure heart O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
Amidst the struggles and the exhaustion, there is such beauty that lies within the day to day world I live in. There is little use in focusing on the things in my life that demand my attention...they will get the attention they require...but for today and each day forward, Lord willing, I want to focus on the one who tells us to cast all our cares upon Him...the one who has proved to be faithful in his loving, tender care of all the details of our lives. I need your touch today, Lord...evidence that you are there to care for the financial, medical, electrical, plumbing needs that are staring us in the face. I know that you are concerned with all the details of our lives Lord...I just need to feel that deep within my spirit. It sounds so silly to say that you are able to handle all the needs I have today...it is like asking a grown man if the feather he is holding is too heavy. But, today, I need to know that you are holding us all in your loving arms...that you will renew our hearts, bodies and spirits..I thank you for the blessings you have given me...and yet I come to you asking for something more...remind me that this life is beautiful...because it is from you. You love us too much to give us a life without struggles.
