Sherri Lee  Be Humble, Kind, and Let Your Light so Shine.

Just me...cruising with my favorite person...with a heart rate of 180bpm trying to catch my breath cause we decided to book it up a trail that ordinarily takes us 40mins but decided to do it in 25. You can’t tell but I had my full gear on and he did it in jeans, T-shirt, and slippers. I can’t decide if I’m insulted or impressed.haha.

Anyone else feel absurdly happy and triumphant when you finish folding laundry and not one sock has gone missing? #adultlife #thesimplethings

There’s so much I originally wanted to put into this and to share but decided to keep this simple even though the journey has been anything but. We just finished our first round of IVF and I’d love to say I’m excited and hopeful but I’m still pretty cautious and uncertain of what the future will look like...too many times my expectations have not matched the outcome. It’s not to say however that God has failed me or that I have failed in my faith somehow. Whatever your own journeys might be remember what is true and real. You are loved, you are seen, and through it all...He is with you. I don’t say that lightly as some cliche, I say that as one who wrestles with my realities and the reality of who He says He is but through it all have found it to be true.

Stayed up late last night worrying. Even when I was asleep my worry existed in my dream. So during my morning walk I prayed for God to calm my fears and He subtlety reminded me...”my cup runs over”. When in worry there’s something to being aware of how small you are in comparison to many things but knowing someone greater is watching out for you that brings opportunity for peace and surrender...and I say opportunity cause I honestly still go back and forth between the two.

Grit, grime, and goals

It’s cold and rainy...and I love it cause I can bust out all my outerwear and prove to @grace_received that it was necessary for me to buy all those jackets, beanies, vests, and boots. Heehee 💛
