We planned a family day at the Children's Museum today. It is Annabelle's absolute favorite place in Memphis and we have been telling her we would take her for a while now.
I love planned family activities. I think it's part of my love for quality time, so today was a special day for me. Adam and I have both been in and out of town and have just been so busy I am thankful for this carved out time to spend just the four of us.
A friend that has a grown child keeps telling me that "four" was her favorite age for her child and I cannot believe we only have a few more months of Annabelle being four. She just seems like such a big girl!
On another note, I feel like The Lord is working in our waiting and I'm thankful. I don't necessarily see any tangible changes in circumstances, but I feel Him moving my heart in ways I have begged Him to for months. I love that my God has the power to literally change my mind and heart. Yesterday I read this verse and it just hit me like a ton of bricks:
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
I get excited thinking about what in the world God has in store for our family. I am thankful that I know that God keeps His promises and that His word says: "His plans for us are to prosper us and not to harm us, to keep giving us hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
