My crazy life

This is my current profile picture on facebook. My sweet friend Christy described it best:

"I guess the profile picture says it all, baby crying, big sister irritated, Daddy trying to figure out what to do, and Mommy just trying to hold it together."

She was so right. We are still standing in the middle of the fire right now. Trying to remember that its in the fire that we are refined. I hope that I come out of the fire a better Christian, wife, mother, and friend.

My sweet husband took me by the hand and lead me to the Word of God tonight. Here is what we as a couple are praying for our home right now.

Psalms 55:22
"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fail."

-its my biggest fear, to fail as a mother.

Phillipians 4:6-7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and your mind."

-my mind has been my enemy lately, and my heart must remain guarded.

1 Peter 5:6-7
"Humble yourselves therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

-He cares about the details of my everyday.

and this remind me to mind my P's and Q's in the hard moments:

Proverbs 15:18
"A hot tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel."

The picture above makes me laugh and throw my hands in the air to say, oh this is a season of life I will never forget.
