The blog looks pretty empty in the recent days. But have no fear! The month of October was dedicated to a series that appeared on a different page of my website. I spent the month writing little letters everyday to my little girls.
I'd love for you to check them out, share any that resonate with you, and let me know what you think. As I wrote, I realized my own heart needed to be reminded of the truths and lessons I so want my daughters to know. I hope you find encouragement in them!
Looking back at the blog and seeing the last post be from September was kind of disheartening, but then I remembered I actually did blog every day in October. It was just on a different page. So if you'd like to look through my 31 Days of Fighting for Grace series, I'd be honored!
You can check out all of the posts here! Or you can click on the image below to see the day by day breakdown of the whole series. I'd love your feedback on it!
This morning my sweet little Katherine looked up at me with big, toddler, tear-filled eyes and my heart melted.
It was seriously the Sweetest. Thing. Ever.
As I was about to head out the door, Spencer told Katherine to tell me bye and love you. And as she looked up at me and said, "Bye-bye. Wuv you" in her precious not-yet-two-year-old voice, her eyes began to fill with tears. Then she tilted her little head down and wiped them away and looked back at me.
And I felt All. The. Emotions.
If Satan were standing in front of me right now, I would punch him in the face. I know he'd try to be sly, to flatter, to entice, to distract. But I wouldn't even think twice. No doubt, there are lots of reasons to knock him out. But in this moment it would be for something little.
About this time last year I wrote a blog talking about finally taking time to consistently write. Well, looks like that didn't really happen. Here I am a year later and it seems like I'm doing the same thing. Once again I'm on here saying I need to write consistently and this is the beginning...the beginning of what exactly I'm not sure.
But this is the beginning of something.
So what's different this time around? How do I know I'm not going to just repeat what I did last year?
Sarah loves Jesus and her family and is passionate about addressing the urgent spiritual and physical needs around the world. She is the wife of Spencer and mama of Katherine and Claire, and they live in Nashville, TN. She runs a photography business with her husband and writes in order to offer encouragement and invite others to choose grace, joy, and gratitude in the adventure and the mundane. She loves traveling and reading; she will choose unsweet tea over sweet and bootcut jeans over skinny; and she is all sorts of awkward with small talk but thrives with deep conversations.
