I've been rebelling against the late summer weather. In the same week I wore both a scarf and a cardigan, though not together since it's still 100 degrees.
I've been jamming out to Mumford and Sons lately. I have no idea where this band has been my entire life and how I've lived without them.
I've been seeing contempt show up - the other-centered kind. A lot. And I think it's time to get to the bottom of what it's all about.
I've been waking up before 5:00am and it's getting a little old. Though I've decided this is God's idea since I get out of bed and read my Bible and pray. It's evident He's after more of my heart and will wake me up if He has to in order to get it.
I've been thankful for my husband. Seriously - he's the greatest thing ever.
I've been struggling with some old insecurity issues. Between the contempt and the insecurities, something feels awry. And I know I can't necessarily fix it, but the awareness of it is perhaps why God has me waking up long before dawn.
I've been printing pictures, updating Jacob's baby book, and putting new photos in old frames. I love how pictures change the feel of my house - just with faces of people I love.
I've been adjusting to being a mother of two - and would quite honestly admit that I am still not adjusted.
I've been walking and walking and walking.
I've been dreaming about a trip to the beach. And hoping late September might bring one for us.
I've been noticing beauty. Like captivating August sunrises.
