Back to School

Back to school!!  I found myself wandering the school supplies and loving it!!  I love September for so many reasons! I love buying school supplies, I love the change in season, I love that our family has a routine daily.  Back to school is also my new year!!  I know that the new starts in January, but not mine I start mine in September.  I reorganize, rethink, and set new goals for myself and for our family.  I am going to try a few new things with the kids this year and I am going to try to reorganize the whole house in the first three weeks that the kids are in school.  I am really excited to see the teachers  the kids get this year and I am totally praying for God's will. 

 Praying for Alexis to continue to be the amazing little girl that she is.  Praying for solid friends in her life and that she continues to be such an great example to so many.  I pray that she will thrive in 4th grade.

Praying for Eli to enjoy first grade again and the he excels in it. I pray that he makes some solid friends this year. I pray that has a great listening ears and that he will have a teacher that knows how Eli works and meets his needs.

The Bridge Mom's Fellowship

We have an amazing group of mommies at our church. Every Tuesday we get together and have fun!! We either meet at the park, someones house, and during the summer we have had a lot of fun days at the Beach club. It has been so much fun to see all the kiddos with their mommies and splashing around the water. I am so thankful for each one of these mommies. They are amazing women that do an awesome job with their kids. I wasn't able to capture all of them but we have been blessed at The Bridge. If you are mommy and would like to meet some great mommies and have some fun fellowship please let me know. We meet every Tuesday @ 10. Location changes so contact me if you want more info.

LIFE group Summer Party!

We have had such an amazing time sharing life with our Life Group.   So to end our time for the summer we headed over to a families house and swam and ate some totally yummy food!!  Our life group has been so amazing.  We have experienced new births, we have seen miracles, and have prayed for one another and have seen growth in us all.  Jimmy and I have had the privilege of serving with Beth and Jacob.  It has been so awesome to serve with them!  We miss our life group.  But we celebrated in such a fun way!  Looking forward to getting back together and hearing all that God has been doing in your in lives this past month.

In my email today!! A little Inspiration!!

Heart to Heart with Holley
I rest my head on the pillow without much rest in my heart.
To-do's swirl around in my mind.
Tasks fall heavy on my shoulders.
I silently pray, "Lord, give the grace for me to carry all of this."
It seems I hear a whisper in response, "Ask instead for the grace to let Me carry you."
I once saw a child carrying a rock too big, determined to take it home. Sweat beading, little feet laboring. Then Daddy came and swooped up His girl. Joy. Giggles. Grace.
She still held the rock but it no longer weighed her down because someone held her.
I fall asleep with a smile...thoughts as light as love.

Heart to Heart with Holley
We feel the weight of the hours, the to-do list, the "I shoulds" and our shoulders ache, our minds race. We tell ourselves, "It's all too much."
Then there is an answer, deep within, calling first for all who are weary to come and then reminding us gently, I AM.
Because in the middle of our circumstances...
the ticking of the clock,
the spinning of the wheels,
there is one deepest fear.
It's that we won't be enough; we'll falter under the weight of it all. And if we do, then we won't be loved. Yes? You've heard that too?
Friend, it isn't true. Hear words of grace instead...
You are enough in Him
because He is enough in you.
I have made you and I will carry you.--God (Isaiah 46:4)

My home, my place of peace and comfort

"As for me and my house we will serve the Lord" 
Joshua 24:15
I love my home.  I have been so blessed with what the Lord has provided for us.  It is my place of comfort where I find rest and peace.  I know that at times my house may not be perfectly cleaned or everything in it's place, but that is okay.  What I do love is that my home has been covered in prayer, it is  the place where I meet God at, it is  a place where I can cuddle with my children and read books to them.  It is a place where I can have quiet moments with my Husband and just talk about our goals and dreams. It is the place that I cry and feel so secure. I love my home!!  One of the things that I love to do in my is almost every night I light as many candles as I can and just sit and RELAX!!!  Have any of you done that lately? Another thing that I love to have in my home is fresh flowers.  AAAHH they make  me feel good and the visitors that enter my home.   Fresh Flowers  make me smile!  So the picture above is what my home is like on a quiet peaceful night in the Williams home.  Take time to make your home a place where you can find peace and comfort.  I pray that you do.  

Stopping in the middle of the Day

Our Summer days are very full. From Swimming days at the pool and beach club, playdates with friends that they miss from school.  Fun trips to the movie theatre and Fun hours spent at the Library. In all this I like settled the kids down and play some classical music and write in their journals. They can write about how their summer is going, they can draw pictures if they want to but they have to use their summer journals for it.  It really is a nice time for them and for me. It will be fun  to look back at it at the end of summer. I love this picture of them.  Alexis is totally concentrating and Eli is really pondering what he is doing.  So fun!!!

Okay so for the past week my wrist has been hurting so badly.  At first I thought I slept on it funny, but then the pain got worse. Then I started to talk to Jimmy about and show him and said I wonder if its your camera?  Well when I pick up my camera It kills me!!  Oh golly I guess I will be stopping at the doctors office to see what I can do.  Thankful for all the amazing business, but I never thought that I could have a slight injury from it. Please pray for me it is really uncomfortable and at times the pain is pretty bad.  Thank you so much!
