I am thankful:
~ for 8 healthy puppies! Bear and Birdie had their third litter last week, and we are up to our eyeballs with the round-the-clock puppy routine! Follow G&W Goldendoodles on Facebook for available puppies and the cutest updated pictures of these little sweeties.
~ for the most delicious Abuelos and Villa Montez dinner dates with my Love.
~ for the older kids having an amazing week at Pine Cove, and the youngers having a blast at VBS.
~ for a full week of family, farm, and fireworks!
~ for an unexpected treat: an evening at Splash Kingdom followed by our first trip to Canton’s iconic Dairy Palace! I sure do love me a good lazy river!
Life is good, hot, and busy. It’s easy to get so caught up in the day to day that I find myself running on fumes. Operating in my own strength instead of His, and that is a recipe for burnout and discouragement. How in the world could I find myself battling anxiety again when life is going great? It doesn’t matter how much GOOD is going on…without God first, I miss His BEST.
Thank You Jesus for lovingly guiding my heart when I start to get lost.
And to all of you, thanks for giving thanks with me.

One thought on “His Best”
Ahhh, I love watching the barn transformation – and the need for a firm reinforced foundation – so many spiritual parallels! I love the big group family photo! At first I thought your rented house had a pool, then I realized this was in Carthage 🤣. Praising God for this precious time to work and play together, without school. Yet the kiddos are learning so much! Hoping you are dodging the poison ivy 😉. The time at Pine Cove is so precious – fellowship, fun , and a chance to hear the precious whispers of the Holy Spirit. And each step in developing the farm/land is strengthening your faith and your family – what a gift – even with the limited space in your temporary home, and a lot of stuff in boxes.
The puppies are adorable as always, but I have an idea of how much work there is between now and new homes 😁.
