I am here again! However, I don't have much to say today. I find myself praying for patience today or should I say most days. It is one of the many things the Lord has been working on in me. I have grown a lot in this area especially since first having children. Poor Noah has been my practice child :) But I do think he is turning out pretty well. He has such a tender heart especially for his sister, who tends to test my patience the most.

Growing up, I always picture myself as a mom. I couldn't wait to become a mother. I saw myself like Maria from the Sound of Music...Fun, loving, tender, kind, patient. However, when I had Noah, reality hit me and my patience was truly tested. The one thing that helps me the most is prayer and scripture. I cling to it like its my only hope...which it is. God can change me, He can shine light on the things that matter, and God can walk with me throughout my crazy days. Here are a few scripture I have memorized and hold close to my heart:

James 1:19-20 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.

1 Peter 5:7-8 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Today has been a trying day but I look at my beautiful children and I am reminded of God's blessings and faithfulness. They are my joy and I am so privileged that God trusted them to me. I need to lean on Him more and not myself. Thanks for reading :)

Sorry about the lack of pictures. I really need to take more. They are all on my phone.
