DSC_0494DSC_1159-2

When you’re a mommy, and 95% of what you do is spend time caring for, playing with, and enjoying your baby/toddler, you think there’s no way you’ll ever forget all the adorable little things he does and says. But then you do.

I’m so glad for what I’ve been able to write down, but wish I’d written more! This is a simple post to share with you and help me remember what Caleb’s vocabulary looks like these days. He says more, but these are the recognizable staples I can brainstorm right now. :)

Learning: A Poem

388283_10151426989888109_214538716_n-001
I’m truly learning so much in this unique season of life. It’s impossible to wrap words around all the things God is doing in my heart, but it’s a beautiful thing to be assured of His hand within me, growing and transforming me day by day. This simple poem is just as fitting in my life now as it was when I first penned it.

Learning to trust Him, learning to die,
Learning to make His will my one cry.

Learning to linger and dwell in His Word,
Learning, when quiet, His voice will be heard.

Learning to worship Him, learning to praise,
Learning that He is my guide through the haze.

Learning His mountain’s not easy to climb,
Learning to take just one step at a time.

Learning to strive for a glorious reward…
All this by the grace of my wonderful Lord.
