A Little Bit of Life

Well I haven’t written in months! Mainly because life is crazy and I just haven’t sat down and taken the time to write out my thoughts. I have written many posts¬†in my head, normally when it is time to be sleeping and my brain won’t stop thinking. ūüôā

So here is a little bit of what has gone on since the last time I wrote.

In October we found out we were expecting again, but sadly the week before Thanksgiving we lost the baby. Because of all the bleeding that I experienced and then passing out on my husband, we ended up in the ER and the Dr. on call decided that best course of action was to do a D&C. Thanksgiving was a blur of tiredness for me. I had lost A LOT of blood and was feeling very tired and weak. It took me weeks to feel like I was back to my normal energy.

2015 was an emotionally and physically hard year for me. Losing 2 babies in a year to miscarriages was very hard. Though it was hard, I am so very thankful for the support and prayers of my family and friends. It is only through the strength God gave me that I was able to make it as well as I did. I am so blessed to have God walking by my side.

Here is a song that meant a lot to me this past year. It is called “Sovereign Over Us” by Michael W. Smith.

It is a great reminder that we are not promised an easy, breezy life.  We will have trials. We will have pain.  But GOD is faithful forever, perfect in love and  HE is sovereign over us.

Months went by quickly, since life is rarely boring with two crazy little boys! ¬†At the beginning of March my husband left for 2 weeks of training with the Army. ¬†Instead of being local, he traveled to another country and was almost 1/2 way across the world. ¬†I had been feeling a little “off”, but thought maybe it was just anxiousness of him being gone. ¬†Nope! ¬†We were yet again expecting!

We are currently 27 weeks pregnant with a little girl! ¬†My boys are so excited ¬†Our oldest has been praying for a sister for almost a year. ¬†God has been good to us. ¬†Though there is still pain in our loss, God has blessed us so much. ¬†We have two healthy, active little boys and now a little girl on the way. ¬† I think many times “God has richly blessed us”.

Life has kept us busy.  Summer brings church softball games, play dates with cousins, swimming and many other adventures.  Last week we had our church VBS and my husband and I co-taught K5-2 grades!  Life is rarely boring and every day is a new adventure.

 

Maybe next post I will have to get you caught up on all the fun things going on with my Etsy store!

Why a Sweet Life

Wow! ¬†I’m taking a leap and starting a blog! ¬†Excited and nervous at the the same time. ¬†Hope I can bring you some inspiration, wisdom and insight from my sweet life!

 

I thought I would start with why my life is sweet. ¬†I could go on and on, but don’t worry, I thought I would narrow it down to my top 3.

First: My Boys

I have two wonderful boys.  My oldest son is 3.  He enjoys trains, trucks and loves helping his Daddy.  He takes everything in and asks many questions about the world around him.

My youngest son is almost 1 1/2.  He is currently trying to decide if he really wants to walk or not.  He LOVES food and lets you know when he thinks he should have more.

Both boys are very active and keep me on my toes. ¬†Some days they really tire me out and give me gray hair. ¬†But then there are times, they give me that smile, hug or kiss and they melt my heart and I’m reminded how blessed I am to have them in my life.

 

Second: My Husband.

I could say so much about him, but I will keep it simple.

At our wedding, we had a song sung with the title “When God Made You“. ¬†Some of the lyrics are “When God made you, He must have been thinking about me”. ¬†Oh how true this is to me. ¬†There are so many character qualities my husband has that I never ever thought I needed or wanted. ¬†He shows me in so many ways how much he loves me and our boys. ¬†He not only provides for us and allows me to stay at home and take care of our boys, but he also is the spiritual leader in our home. ¬†I am so blessed to be married to a man that desires to be a man of God and keep HIM first in his life, our marriage and our family.

 

Last and Greatest Sweet thing in my Life: My personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

I wouldn’t be who I am today without Christ in my Life. ¬†He has walked beside me when I thought I might not be able to walk anymore. He has given me so many things to be thankful for, a wonderful family that loves me, a nice home, good fiends, and so much more.

My life isn’t perfect and I am very very far from perfect. But God still loves with a love that is hard to fully imagine. He sent his one and only son to earth, to die on a cross for me. ¬†He LOVES ME THAT MUCH!! ¬†John 3:16-17 ¬†He suffered and died, so that if I would believe in HIM, I would be able to spend eternity¬†with HIM in heaven.

So this is top reason that I know my life is sweet. ¬†I have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. ¬†If you don’t, and maybe want to know more about HIM, please feel free to contact me and I would love to share with you more about the amazing life God has to offer you.

 

Well, first blog written, posted and hopefully read!  Check that one of my to do list.
