Hello August?

What have i been doing this summer? Last summer seemed to stretch endlessly and this summer has swept by like a fast moving train. I am just amazed it's already August.

Lifelong ambitions?
Since I stay at home with Ava and Sophia, I feel like I am always going, going, going. Ava stayed with my mom and dad last night and for the first night in a long while, I got to just breath. You know, that long breathe you get when you get a momentary break in life. I have been talking recently to Brandon about life, my dreams and things I want to accomplish. When I was a young girl I wanted to be a fashion designer, writer, CEO, yes, I am a first child. I wanted to be a judge or lawyer when I was out of college. Now I am a mom. At home. Isn't God funny how he uses us to do what he knows we really will find joy and peace in?

But, even when I was working as an aide in the Statehouse, I always felt that I wanted to do more, be more, to have something to create that was all my own.

Now that I am at home I still have burn out days. Days that are long and never ending. Days that seem to hold nothing glamorous like adding amendments to a bill that is fast-tracked through the House, but that mean more to two little girls that are the Lords.

We have been feeling a stirring lately. Stirring of something that is coming and that God is working or preparing us for. I guess I will just have to be patient and know that He is in charge and not me.

Here's a verse I have really been loving lately--Psalm 112.

PS. Shoutout to Marla T. for her 52 Zoos in 52 Weeks! What an amazing job!

I love those stirrings! Exciting and frustrating at the same time. We're beginning to feel some of those as well. Part of me loves change and the other part hates it. So right now I'm excited about possible changes on the horizon. Anyway, keep us posted!
