One Month

Today marks one month since we met the movers at the door of our new home! I can't quite decide if it has flown by or crawled. And i'm sure that makes absolutely no sense to anybody but me but it does make sense to me in a weird sort of way. Its been a hard month of trials and challenges but a month of triumphs and joy in watching my little family pull together and be everything a family should be. A month of watching my hubby take on new responsibilities and step further out of his comfort zone than i've ever seen and do a fabulous job at it! Proud doesn't even begin to describe how i feel. He is amazing! A month of heartache as i have watched my first born struggle to adjust and to make friends and to catch up in school. I have prayed more for that little boy the last month than i have his entire life put together and those prayers have so graciously been answered. I have watched "my baby" overcome and grow in so many ways through the trials he has faced and he is doing so very well. It is an ongoing process but his faith is growing as he watches answers to prayer unfold. What an amazing blessing this is as a mommy~to watch God work in your child's life and to watch his faith grow! And while Brayden hasn't struggled in the ways that the rest of us have he has been right there all along bringing more joy and laughter to our family than you can imagine! While things haven't happened the way i had envisioned, God is good. Above all else He has provided and i know without a doubt that He has been and will continue to be right here with us through it all. I am so blessed and so very grateful. Tonight as i take time to reflect on the last month, my heart is overflowing with love for my Savior and all He has done for me. I'm so undeserving and yet His love for me is so great! And now i will leave you with a verse that has spoken to me so much lately......

John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

These words have brought me so much comfort this last month! Take heart...He has overcome the world. What an awesome God we serve!!

You always have the best perspective! I'm proud of YOU! Can't believe it's already been a month.

Guess what I was daydreaming about today? Winning the lottery and using some of the $$ to fly to Florida to watch the Bachelor Finale with you, my crazed reality TV fan co-hort! Wouldn't that be fun?! I'm jealous you get to know 3 hours before ME!!
