This post will most likely be a bit of babbling... This last week has been a quiet week for the most part. I went to my moms house and cleaned for her on Tuesday...Worked on my own a bit. Had a few friends over for tea on Wednesday which was very nice. I am working on cutting out the carbs...so here is breakfast....A nice bowl of white peaches which I canned this last Fall. So nice to go into the pantry and have yummy fruit for the Winter. We finished off our pears and applesauce...Yet, have just enough peaches left for the remaining Winter season. These peaches mind you are so good...they taste like peach pie without the crust.
This is what I made for Christmas... a mug from Shutterfly...cute as can be. with my kids picture on the other side. I made one for my hubby too...which I wrote a Bible verse on....He loves it and drinks his coffee from it most mornings, when it is clean of course. I wrote "the reason I wake up everyday" on my mug. It is a wonderful reminder even on days I don't feel like getting out of bed. My God given gift is to be a mother and wife and to take care of my household. Truly these things are gifts to me.
My kids are growing up so fast...before my eyes really. It amazes me everyday I look at them. Though they are growing up, they still very much need us. These have been some difficult times for them as far as friendships and such. We have dealt with pain and tears and hurt feelings. We have had many talks, many hugs and breakthroughs as well. I am thankful that they come to us and not bottle it up or go to their peers for advice. We have always been a close family and these sorts of things have brought us even closer in so many ways. I am thankful they trust their parents. We are grateful to be their parents.
I keep praying this year will go well. As a church this New Year we have already lost a friend to brain cancer, yet have seen a little blessing be born....Just a few more months down the line, my dear Mr. Darling will graduate from Seminary...It is exciting yet scary at the same time not knowing what God has in store for our new future. My hubby will soon be a Pastor and I a Pastors wife, my kids PK's ( Pastors Kids). Where will we end up moving, where will we live? So many questions...I try with all my might not to let it worry me. I try with all my might to give all my cares, concerns and worries to God. Please pray for us. I'll keep ya all posted. Now the next question is....Do you think I can get away with eating chocolate for breakfast?
Have a blessed weekend.
