In the evening, we close our shutters. In the morning, we open them up again. There’s more to this than maybe meets the eye.

There's nothing like that window of time in the mornings where everything is shimmering with dew, you feel the newness of the day, the warm glow of the sun as it casts long shadows on everything and the birds are cheerfully singing away. Thank you God for giving me my heart's desire to raise my babies on a farm. ❤

With a new sunrise comes new opportunity, the chance to make things better, to do more, to self-improve. God is so good to give us that assurance that while there's breath there's hope. Every sunrise we are given is another day here on earth to do something for Him. Make the most of it. ☀️

Tak berkesudahan kasih setia TUHAN, tak habis-habisnya rahmat-Nya, selalu baru tiap pagi; besar kesetiaan-Mu! "TUHAN adalah bagianku," kata jiwaku, oleh sebab itu aku berharap kepada-Nya. TUHAN adalah baik bagi orang yang berharap kepada-Nya, bagi jiwa yang mencari Dia. Adalah baik menanti dengan diam pertolongan TUHAN. Ratapan 3:22-26.

Lamentations 3:22-23 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
Thank you God that your mercy and grace are new every morning for us who believe and put our hope in the You. He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone. Amen 🙏👍 Have a blessed weekend 😊🙏❤️ #acfchurchindonesia #churchisaplacewheremiracleshappen #Hismerciesareneweverymorning #thankyouJesus

Before this picture Zephyr woke up from his nap for an unknown reason and screamed and cried for at least 20 minutes. You know the scream, the one where you are sure they are hurting their throat. And, we had our first school melt down today. And, the dishwasher that was getting installed today, after 6 weeks without one, was damaged, so we have to wait for them to order another one. And, I somehow remained calm through all of it. 🤗Some days are hard, but moments like lemonade on the deck and these snuggles happened too and are even bigger blessings on days like this. His mercies are new every morning. That is the thing I need to remember to get through some days, days like today.

After about 5 minutes (that really felt like an eternity) of furiously searching for my baby boy in a new school full of other good samaritan (and frankly forever friends in my mind) parents, doing the same, I began to hyperventilate. I had looked in every single open room, in the school kitchen, in every corridor and classroom and every time I came back to the main hall and saw the other parents and teachers without him in their arms (and looking at me wildly panicked, too), I for a brief moment thought, "my boy has been kidnapped." My mind went to weird places and it felt like the thoughts as I literally sprinted in and out of the school, to the parking lots and jungle gyms were stomping me into the ground. Tears were flowing and because I couldn't breathe, my cry was not silent and sweet but dreadfully panicked and almost groaning. The dad who caught the first groan stopped me and said "were gonna find him, were gonna find him." I wasn't so sure at that point. And then I reopened the front doors to the school to see a teacher hustling toward me with him tightly in her arms, saying, "I found him, I found him, he's right here, he's ok." I quickly ran to her, sweeped him out of her arms and held him tighter than I think I ever have. It was like a PTSD moment from that same feeling of impending loss all over again from his NICU days. It was like I couldn't look at his eyes deep enough. And as I stood there with the potential of feeling humiliated by my carelessness to let him slip out of my sight. all I felt was grace. Because only moments before I opened the door to see the teacher, as I just heard the man reassure me, I spoke out the name of Jesus. And then GRACE. I was distracted and over-busy and certainly too loosey goosey in my watching over him as he slipped into the neighboring preschool room to Judah's (and later found silently playing in the corner), but grace. Grace sustains me in my motherhood literally EVERY DAY. Grace rescued me and him in the NICU back then and I assert and fully believe will follow us all the days of our lives. Thank you Jesus.

I had a buddy for sunrise on the balcony today! I enjoyed yesterday’s time of reflection alone, but so thankful for this special one-on-one time with my youngest.

If you’re traveling with kids, don’t get too caught up in your agenda to enjoy the magical little moments. I’ll never forget scooping this girl up in my lap and enjoying tender #morningcuddles.

Beautiful rainbow this morning!

I normally don’t do Friday introductions so frequently but I figured since I have gained a few followers since the last time I did it, I might as well do one! I am a watercolor artist living right outside the Charlotte metro area in Fort Mill. I have two daughters who are my life! I have a wonderful family who lives relatively close. I have loved living close enough to see them at least once a month (or at least that is how it has been as of late). I am super excited for the fall and winter here in the Carolinas. I have already decorated my house for fall and Christmas will be coming along soon. For the first time in 8 years we plan on buying a REAL tree too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My daughter and I both battle chronic health issues. She is special needs and working with an amazing neurologist here in the area. We pray all the time that God will heal her. It is very difficult to be a special needs parent. When the Bible says His mercies are new every morning, I cling to that! I battle health issues as well and have worked with many doctors to try and heal, but alas I am an anomaly. Thankfully we put our faith in Christ and know that this world is not our home, and these bodies are flawed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We live a natural “crunchy” life. We eat organic, gluten free, and dairy free. We eat little sugar, and try to use natural remedies, cleaners, and supplements as much as possible. This is a huge passion of mine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“In these seasons, what helps me most is staying fixated on the daily faithfulness of God. If I start thinking about how I’m going to still be enduring in a year, I’ll lose heart. I don’t have next year’s grace. It will be given to me then according to my need. BUT I have today’s.” #bethmoore #bethmooretweets #twitter #faithfulness #greatishisfaithfulness #hismerciesareneweverymorning #seasons #jesus #jesuslovesyou #bethmoorequotes

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his son . Whoever has the son has life ; whoever does not have the son of God does not have life .
