Love, believing the best...



Love is ever ready to believe the best of every person.... 1 Corinthians 13:7

Have you ever read a person totally wrong and later found out they didn’t think or feel how you thought they did? I have! In fact, I think I do it often. On the personality test, I am a thinker, an analyzer and I analyze people all.of.the.time.

I do it to my husband. He is quiet and I assume he is upset. I do it to my friends. A friend doesn’t text me back and I assume they are mad at me. 

Instead of having this attitude toward people, I want God to teach me to always give people the benefit of the doubt, to be “ever ready to believe the best in every person.” This is easy for me to do with people that are like me, the challenge comes when I am in a situation with a person who doesn’t have my personality and/or wouldn’t say or react the way I would in a situation.

The truth is, God made everyone unique. There are endless amounts of combinations of personalities and I am not only called to love or believe the best in the people similar to me; I am given this command is to love and believe the best in everyone. 

His word says, if I can speak many languages in the Spirit, if I have the gift of interpreting His divine will for myself and others, if I understand all the secret truths and mysteries, possess all knowledge and have enough faith to move mountains but I do not have God’s love in me, to think the best in people, I am a useless nobody. (1 Corinthians 13) 

Oh may I learn to be more like Him in the way I think and filter life and may my love for others, in desperately desiring to believe the best, show the world the Jesus inside of me.

Thankful!



It was a perfect day!! Dress up and crafts, Adelyn's first time on the big girl beam, a family trip to the zoo, AB's soccer game, all topped off with a slumber party! So thankful Annabelle had the day off of school! 

Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17

Enough!



Absolutely love this passage and commentary from the girl's exposition of the entire bible. 

Oh that my heart and life be full of light! May I be content, resting in that He is ENOUGH! May my mind and words be full of blessings and goodness! May I be able to abide knowing all things are working for my good and His glory and that I will never ever be separated from my God!!

Abraham is 10 Months!

I cannot believe we are so close to Abe's one year birthday. He's such a big boy these days! He has big boy hair and lots of it!! He is talking and talking and understand when I tell him "no." 

Abe is eating all kinds of food! He loves big boy food like pasta and he eats a TON! He is always hungry! I think he definatly has Adelyn and Adam's metabolism! Ha! 

Abraham is not really good at naps. He cat naps throughout the day and occasionally sleeps for an hour and a half. He usually always goes to sleep at 9. We can count on that.

Abe is wearing 12ish month clothes and is heavy!! He has started to get such a little personality. He makes this srunchy face at me and Adam and he knows it makes us laugh so he tries to entertain us. When the girls are at home, he is all up in their buisness. He wants to be wherever they are doing whatever they are doing. He loves them so much! 

He is still such a sweet little baby boy; he is just not so cuddly anymore. He wants to be on the go! He love loves his daddy as much as he loves me! 

I'm so thankful for his little life. He is a joy to our family!!!

Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for:
I've gotten to spend some fun one on one time with this little girl lately.
This one loved soccer last week!
I'm hoping she likes it again this week :) You never know at this age! Ha!
The church we attend celebrated it's 4 year anniversary on Sunday. I'm so thankful we attend a church who focuses on GRACE. ������
I'm thankful for the lunch I got to eat with Annabelle at school yesterday! It was so so fun for both of us and little Abe! 
I'm thankful that His grace has been enough this week.
I'm thankful that I know He will never forsake me! 
And I'm so thankful for these promises!:
And for this little guy!! 
That my glory may sing your praises and not be silent! I Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! Psalm 30:12
