Hey sweet friends!
Over the holiday I have been reflecting on all the things, wait for it, I’m thankful for. Around this time last year, I was in the deepest pit of, arguably, my life. I needed something more even though I had everything I had ever asked for. We had just moved into our beautiful home; I have a husband that adores me, that loves me even more for my very worst pieces, FIVE very beautiful, healthy babies that could not have blended easier to have been a mixed together family, and even a new puppy. All I was missing was a swing…
and something bigger.
I had always know of Jesus but it wasn’t until this dark season that He introduced himself in a way that was just undeniable. This time last year on black Friday, I bought my oldest step-daughter and I a journaling bible. I enjoyed one-on-one time with this almost unrealistically sweet baby girl so much; I thought spending time coloring in our bibles together may one day do us both some good.
I colored four pages, and Jesus colored me.
I had not known Jesus at all, but suddenly I wanted to. More than anything did I want to know more.
As I sit here with literal tears and think about how that 20 dollar purchase changed my life I cant help but be overwhelmingly thankful. The absolute worst year of my life was preparing to kick off the best one because of four small pages.
I have turned through every page this year, and cried over most of them.
I am so grateful for the constant encouragement and support of those that follow this little baby bite of Jesus. I want to share the love.
Here is a little download for y’all. It is all of my tips, tricks, and resources I’ve found over the last year and I hope that these adjustments in your quiet time with Jesus will bless your life as it has mine!
I love you all so big much!
