The week passed quickly with much accomplished and simple times enjoyed. Over the weekend we had temperatures reach into the upper 60's lower 70's, it most definitely gave us a taste of spring. On Saturday we had a delightful visit from our friends the Burke family from South Carolina. Yesterday after church we spent the day out at the farm where I watched my older children interact laughing, telling jokes, and sharing their thoughts, all the while my littles where running, jumping, and yelling with wind whipping through their hair....not a care in the world! The simplicity of the day made my Mama heart swell with gratitude for I'm unworthy of these children and the overwhelming joy they bring me. As I have shared the seasons of change are upon us, we have adult children down to a wee babe growing in the womb....I am seeking to slow down and soak in this season, for it too shall pass quickly.
Praise be to the Lord for each season Arthur and I have experienced over the past 22 years....good and bad! Each bad season brought us a lesson from the Lord, which strengthened our faith, love for the Lord, and love for one another. Good times were to follow..... without the times in the valley we could never be thankful for the mountain top!
