Counting my blessings today.

So I have been struggling a lot lately. This past year well, two and half years really, have been very hard on all levels and fronts. Haddie getting that sickness a day after Levi was born really did me in. An emotion that I tend to show, no matter how I really feel, is anger. 

I was just done with the enemy stealing all my joy. I know that I can't blame it all, I have a lot to learn too. Trust is a huge part of it to! Being a mom and a wife and a Christian is hard and all together even harder lol. Yet more blessing and fulfillment is found in these things than anything else. Courage and strength are needed everyday to do each of these, all by their selves and together well... 

Probably sounds like I am complaining, maybe I am, but these are real issues that moms struggle with or at least I am right now. Who am I, what am I, how do I raise my kids to be Godly men and women when I have so many issues myself?! How do I keep this house clean lol 

Yet, I look around me and see how truly, awesomely, amazingly, blessed I really am!

Just the beautiful sunshine outside is a huge gift and blessing to me.

Yesterday I let all the bad things consume me and overtake my day and life.Today I count my blessings and lean into Jesus.
  8 To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; 9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. 
1 Peter 3:8-9
