insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy

rhythm of my life

the rhythm of my life begins everyday day with 
"hey mommy"
the clash of cereal bowls
and diaper changes

the rhythm of my life has arguments about responsibility 
and laughter of the sounds of farts

the rhythm of my life includes the hmm of the washer, dryer, and dishwasher
with the occasional rumble of a tractor and a cry of a cow

the rhythm of my life has songs in tune with made up words from a sweet baby girl
and the picking of mandolin by an independent 7 year old

they rhythm of my life has phone calls from my moma and husband and Jessica and steady bubbles as text come in from friends

the rhythm of my life waits for the sound of the door every night when the husband comes in smelly and tired but still smiles at the sight of his children

the rhythm of my life is high and low and sometimes loud and and sometimes soft but it ebbs and flows into a beautiful song that has an every changing melody but the beat is still the same and hopefully others see it is being conducted by the Great Almighty 



Jessica and I chillin at the zoo

what is the rhythm of your life these days?

  2. Karrie, the rhythm of my life waits for Hubby to come home too. :) Love that your 7 year old plays the mandolin and love your header photo! And the C.S. Lewis quote on the sidebar. Found you via 5 minute Fridays :).

  3. Beautiful post. Love the last line - '...and hopefully others see it is being conducted by the Great Almighty.'

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
