While she's sleeping

41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Luke 10:41-42

It is not the first time that I heard this passage, but it is one that I want to take to heart. I get distracted, a lot. My focus is not where it should be. I rush around thinking I'm working hard and concentrated on the task at hand, let it be cleaning the house or preparing for company. But the opposite is happening, I'm frantic and unfocused, worried about the wrong things. Worried about what my company will think if I leave a speck of dust on the floor. Worried that if I'm not up and doing something I'm wasting time. 

As a first time mom, oftentimes I feel like I'm not good enough at the job God has entrusted me with. I feel like there are so many areas that I need to improve and when I look at other moms I wonder how they got it all figured out so quickly. In these moments, just like Martha, I have lost touch with what is important. Whenever I feel rushed and unfocused, I want to be still and remember that He is God. He is in control and will work everything for our greater good.

That said, my little One just woke up and wants my attention. She is a wonderful gift from God and I love every second with her. Be blessed my friends, we serve an amazing God.


For the Ups and Downs ...

... God Gave Me You!

It has been six years yesterday, since my wonderful husband and I said " I Do!". Six amazing years - they seem so short and yet so fast. We met online on a blog while I was still in High School, got engaged a year into my college and married after I was finished. JC is my best friend, my soulmate. I can trust him with everything on my heart - good and bad. He always cheers me on and supports every crazy idea that gets into my mind. I love and respect him so much!

These 6 years have been great, but since God called us it has been even better. The Lord has worked so much in our lives, He is our number One and has only the best for us in mind. We serve an amazing God!
Imagine it like a triangle (hope the below illustration shows up good on your screen) -

Husband & Wife

Draw it out infront of you, God on top then Husband and Wife on each end of the triangle. Now use your index finger and place one on Husband and one on Wife. Move them upwards closer to God - do you see what happens? The closer you are to God, the closer you are as a Husband and Wife Team! And that's exactly how God has worked in our lives! He has made us so close. God has shown me so many things how I can be a christian wife to my husband and I am so excited to practice what He is showing me how to be the best help meet I can for my better half and raise our child(ren) in a godly way.
