When I picked Zeke up from youth group tonight, I asked him what they talked about. He said they talked about God being (or should be) our #1 priority. He went on to say he is going to spend less time on Pokemon. I asked him if he thought that was what the Holy Spirit is telling him to do, and he said yes.
And just like that he is listening and obeying and my 7lb 12oz baby is becoming a young man and growing in his relationship with Christ and this mama could not be more proud of her son. <3 <3 <3

"God, please let mom get a new thyroid and don't let this one get cancer, please. And help mom get pregnant so Macie can have a sister." -Asher
Back story, Macie REALLY wants a sister. She wonders why her brothers have each other but she doesn't have a sister. I encourage my kids to take their requests/feelings/anything to God , and so lately Asher has been praying this for his sister.
The thyroid part came out of nowhere !! He mentioned it would save money that I now spend on thyroid meds.
Asher is a sweetheart.

The older I get, the more I realize how I try to control things. One thing in particular, my children. I try to control their environment, I try to keep them safe and I feel they are safest when with me - because then I know what's happening, I can change things accordingly, 'cause then I'm in control.
There's been a chance of storms all week but we haven't seen a drop of rain until this morning, the day my kids leave me for 24 hours and will be 1.5 hours away. I packed their bags, organized them, made sure they had all they would need plus some, to ensure their safety, well being, to give me a sense of comfort.
But now they're gone and the rain falls down and I have seen two strikes of lightning and have heard some thunder. My kids are driving off into a storm that I have no control of, I have no power over the weather or of people's driving. I am reminded of how not in control I am. I am humbled. I can try to control things to the best of my ability, with my limited knowledge, but I truly have no power in controlling the outcome of life --- whether it's my life or my children's. I am in tears as I realize my trust needs to be in His ability, not my own.
And now the storm clouds have rolled away and the sun has shown it's face. ❤
