April



I've done a terrible job at capturing pictures from the last couple of weeks, but we've been spending a lot of time outside and absolutely loving it!! This last week the guys were able to get back to work and get some jobs done which was really nice! And we've been enjoying spending the evenings together as a family doing various activities.


One thing that I am loving about April being a slower month, due to everyone staying at home, is the extra time to spend on things that easily get rushed or forgotten. Spending time in God's word is always a priority for us, but sometimes it is easy to just hurry through it and not really take the time to meditate on it and apply it in our lives the way it should be. We live every day life with our family, but it is easy to take each other for granted and not put effort or energy into building those relationships. We see the beauty of God's creation all around us, but it is easy to move on to the next thing on our list and not take the time to really enjoy it and thank our Creator. Life is full of opportunities and blessings, if we just take the time to notice and invest in them!


We've been treasuring the extra time to slow down a little bit and be more intentional in some of those things. It has been really refreshing and special!! Hopefully I can do a better job at taking pictures this next week and will post some of them soon!

"I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope."
Psalms 16:8-9
