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


my rambling on being present

the dishes are piled in the sink 
the clothes are folded on the couch but not put away
there is a giant fort in the living room
the beds aren't made 
the bathrooms are not spotless

but yesterday when i crawled in this fort and brought with me oreo cookies
their faces
their conversation
that was being in the present
living in the now
not thinking about the number of days till school starts or till christmas comes
but just loving that minute

i then looked over at my son after putting little girl down for nap
and said what are you doing as he lay across a bench with his hands on his chest
he replied by showing me a heart with hands and saying
"i'm showing my heart to God and saying I love you to Him"

that was being in the present
living in the now
loving God right then and right there

Owen and I pulled over on the side of the road to take a picture of these sunglasses in the clouds yesterday.

Thankful God is always present with us, where ever we are, what ever we are doing.  He says I'll be there.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

  1. Me stopping to take Oreos into the tent- my boys would love that.. thanks for the encouragement to play more. And the folded laundry not put away--yea, I've got that too.

  2. Loved this post. Stopping in from Five Minute Friday and glad I did. Have a blessed weekend.


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