In Christ Alone

Life is about to get busier again as programs kick off for the Fall. I read something this morning that made me think about what I’m using to try to create a feeling of fulfillment. It was a good reminder for me to fill my thoughts and time with more Jesus instead of trying to cram more activities into the schedule. Being constantly busy may distract me from any issues I’m facing, but busyness can never bring the peace and joy that comes from Christ alone.

I’m enjoying some reading plans on my YouVerse Bible app. Do you have this app? If so, have you read through any of the plans?
I’m listening to this beautiful song this morning.



A lot has happened since my last blog post.  We are now happily residing in the South, again!  We’re in Texas, to be exact.  The past few weeks were spent settling into our new home, painting, furnishing and decorating.  We’ve made good progress but have lots more to do.

We’ve met several of our new neighbors and have even attended a block party.  Everyone’s been very friendly.  This feels like the perfect place for our family.

Little E had his first hair cut yesterday.  He’s growing up so fast.  🙂 😦

He’s looking all grown up after his first hair cut.

We haven’t finished E’s costume yet.  Luckily he’ll look cute in whatever he wears 😉

Do you have any fun and festive Fall plans?


How is it almost August?

For as slowly as the beginning of the year drug on, this summer has flown by!  I guess that has to do with the weather being warm and sunny and parenthood coming a little more naturally now.  E now has three teeth in, and the fourth tooth is showing signs of emerging any day now.  He’s been pretty miserable with his sore gums, so we’re hopeful that he will get some relief soon.  His sleeping habits have gone from wonderful (6-8 hours straight many nights) to awful (up every 45 minutes to an hour some nights…like last night.)

Besides the teething our little guys is happy most of the time.  He is busy crawling, pulling himself up on everything he can get to, “cruising” around the furniture, and most shockingly CLIMBING!  Yesterday we saw him climb on top of a box.  He is more of a handful each day!  I didn’t expect him to be this mobile at just seven months old.  He will be an earlier walker than I was, I’m sure.  I didn’t walk until a year old.

We are slowly packing up and getting ready for our move at the end of the summer.  As much as I wasn’t thrilled about moving to Michigan, we’ve made some good friends that we’ll be sad to leave.  However, we won’t miss those frigid winters!

E is waking up, so that’s all for this post.
