Weekly Update

I cannot believe it is the middle of February! I chuckle at the ‘weekly’ word…it has been a month since my last ‘weekly’ update.

This month swooped in and I already found myself needing to revisit my New Year’s goals and embrace slow once again.

February came in with a bang and along with it a busted pipe. The main sewage pipe in our home. Frozen and cracked, it wreaked a bit of havoc on our home. Carpet is torn up, walls cut down, but the pipe is fixed! A great reminder of what a gift running water is, and what is and is not an emergency in this life. This was not. We have the option to fix it. We have running water once again. I am thankful.

I recently decorated for our yearly IF: Gathering and it was much fun, but lots of thought and work. It was a wonderful weekend–you can see glimpses of it on my Instagram. Have you heard of IF or participated in your city?

My Todd had a birthday February 5th but we have yet to celebrate it. We had family plans but needed to cancel them. Evidence of a hard, hard-working season for him, and that we are all trying to figure out the best way to live this life and all it can throw at us.

Valentines Day came with it a reminder: all that matters is love. It forced me into contemplating love and this family of mine.

I had to just take a breath, buckle down and figure out once again how to slow down and love well. Time is passing and I have been too busy doing lots of loving and lovely things but missing out a bit on my Love’s at home.

My Teagan is a senior, ain’t nobody got time for missing out on time! I reevaluate where I’m spending it and how. I make choices where and when I have the power to. Deliberateness matters.

The above letterboard that is in our home reminds me what must be most important to me during this season. My home, my people in my home, and the allowing of God’s glory to infiltrate our lives.

Figuring out what this looks like right now has taken long Voxers to my sister and my dearest friends as I try to decide what are my best ‘yesses’ and my best ‘no’s, and how to make the best of fast, hard seasons.

It is so hard to slow and say no to great things to say yes to the greatest of things. This matters, even if it means postponing my own dreams to help those I love to chase theirs.

I so don’t have it figured out but it is good to sometimes just put the breaks on and make tough decisions with time, so that it doesn’t pass me by.
