A lot has happened in my life lately. We did move. We love our new house. It's definitely more spacious for our family of six. A few people have commented that we probably just don't know what to do with all the space ... but we're figuring it out pretty quickly. :) With three boys and an almost walking baby girl, the extra space is surely a blessing! It's also nice that my husband has a bonafide office now. As he works from home often and is getting a new business launched, he is very thankful for a mostly quiet room where he can set up shop.
My sweet baby girl had her one year old birthday this past weekend! She's growing too fast! It's bittersweet. I enjoy seeing her grow and witnessing her personality take shape. She's so beautiful, inside and out, already! But it also makes me a little sad that she's outgrowing all of her baby clothes and growing out of the baby stages. I know every mom has similar thoughts watching their babies turn into toddlers.
So those are just a couple of the events that have taken place in my personal life over the past few months. Don't you love how firm and secure our heavenly Father is? No matter what circumstances take place in our lives, He is always the same. Yesterday, today and forever! He is constant. That is such a comforting thought. We can always come to the Father, amid our sometimes hectic lives, and find peace and rest because He's always there and always the same.
As I was reading the Word this morning, I always pull up my YouVersion bible app on my phone for reference of different translations. I enjoy reading the daily verse that pops up. Today, it was a verse from Colossians. I usually go to the entire chapter to read the context. Well, some verses from that chapter got me excited today ...
