What's UP?!!!

I'm still here.  I still dwell among the living.

So, what have I been up to?  LIVING!  That's pretty much what we do around here.  We take one day at a time, getting through the trials and triumphs of a day, and then we move on to the next.  Isn't that what any mommy does?

I suppose my days should seem "less" chaotic since my kiddos are in school during the day, but it hasn't really seemed to work out that way.  Just keeping up with their calendars and helping out three time a week in their classes and making sure homework is complete, chores are done, tummies are filled, and bodies are cleaned and well rested before we start the next day... Well, that's pretty much my life.  I'd love to tell you that I have it all under control and that I run this system smoothly and effortlessly.  Yeah, that's not so much the case.  But we do our best... and who cares if most of us need to run downstairs to our laundry room to find clean clothes?!

In the midst of the craziness we call life, I love it when God gives me a little poke on the shoulder and reminds me to slow down... to enjoy Him... and to remember who created me and why.... that His grace is sufficient .. and my acceptance can only be found in Him.  That's easy to put on the back burner now and again, way more often than I'd like to admit.

It's no secret that this time of year is a favorite for many.  Snapshots can be found all over Facebook and Instagram, of colorful leaves and beautiful landscapes.  Here have been a few of my own... just iphone snapshots.  Nothing can really portray the beauty in the reality of it.  It's only a glimpse... that my God is SO BIG ("so strong and so mighty!  There's nothing my God cannot do!"  Sing it with me now!)  :)
