Eli had a choir performance

So Eli had a little choir performance and he did such a great job.  But he did really well. He loves music!! He loves to sing it and dance to it. He was so excited to perform this for everyone. I am so glad that they get to do this in their school. He is learning so much and comes home every day with something new. I love it!! Way to go buddy you did such a great job!!

New Season for me!!

Seasons Of Life
I am so very thankful for all the blessings in my life.  About a month in half a go my life changed.  I entered a new season.  A season that I had prayed for because I sat down one night exhausted and feeling like a failure because I didn't get to finish the kids homework and the house was a mess and I felt like the day slipped away from me.  At that moment I realized that I needed to empty my plate a bit.  I prayed and asked the Lord to please help me.  i wanted to invest in my children more and not miss this time of their life. I also wanted more time to invest in my photography and also back into the the ministry.  So there were three things that I laid before the Lord and he answered my prayers.

 So Here I am I have more time on my hands then I have ever had.  I do love it.!!!!!  I work in Eli's class once a week and I work in Alexis' class every other week.  I also get to attend things that they do in their classroom and I love that.  Every Monday Jimmy and get to have a date day and it is the BEST!!!  God has opened up so many doors for me to do my photography and also spend time editing my pictures and learn more about my computer and photoshop.  I have also had a great time reaching out to the young mommies in our church and friends.  Yesterday as I was driving around and thinking of my time I heard a voice saying," are you using the time I gave to you wisely?"  Well for those of you who know me well I love to shop and some times all I want to do is shop!  So I stopped what I was doing and came home and spent some much needed quiet time with the Lord.  It was awesome!!!!  So this new season that I am in  I love it.  I just need to make sure that my time is not being wasted and that I do use it wisely.  In the days when the kids would cry a lot (Eli) and they seemed like endless days I look back and I am so thankful for that season that I got to enjoy everyday of my kids growing up and now I get to enjoy this next season.  I am so very thankful for a husband that works so hard for us and that I get to stay home with my babies.  So I am going to embrace it and take it one day at a time and see what the Lord has for me.
