I love this guy, our flannel wearing, his kisses and a much needed get away. πŸ’•

#ontheblog today, an update on life! There are so many exciting things happening around here. Of course they're mixed into the crazy and messy, but they're happening. There's such a grace in this season to be, become, do, and enjoy the journey. #linkinbio
My little guy loves clothes and is super particular about what he wears. Like. Every. Day! And heaven forbid I tell him how cute he is. His response is always "Momma I cool, not cute!" πŸ’•
And that's a wrap for the "Come to the table" series @rockcitycorpus! Really had fun co-teaching with my favorite guy @djbendett πŸ’•
Everything isn't always perfect. There are still promises not fulfilled, some hurdles still there...anyone else? πŸ™‹ but still so much good is happening!! And isn't this truth in Colossians 1 so great?!

. "Live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haulβ€”not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us." .

Let's keep smiling. Let's be filled with joy and gratitude, knowing that He makes everything bright and beautiful in time. And He gives us the strength within the journey. πŸ’•πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
This is the look I give him when he does his typical posed stance for photos. Then, "can we change it up a little, like act more natural maybe" πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ I still love him to pieces even that stance of his. πŸ’• #marriedlife
To claim is to state something, typically without providing evidence or proof. 
So, sometimes we need to claim the promises He has made over our lives even when there isn’t any tangible evidence to support them. We get the beautiful option to choose His reality over our reality.
Part 3 of our "Come To The Table" series resumes @rockcitycorpus tomorrow at 10 & 11:30am
You can totally tell how happy my momma heart was about him falling asleep on me. I'm a sucker for this baby boy πŸ’•
I clean, they play. πŸ’•
Guys!!! We remodeled our vending trailer and have opened for business in Port Aransas! We are working hard on rebuilding our shop, but in the mean time we are so glad to still be able to serve the community. Spread the word and come by to see us! Together we can help Port Aransas come back stronger! #portaransas #portastrong #hurricaneharvey #coffeewaves @coffeewavesporta
Today I am so thankful for the higher-"God perspective" that we can choose to make our every day reality. The perspective that helps us see His faithfulness in both the pain and beauty of life. 
His perspective says so many good things, but a few of my favorite are:
He restores, makes beauty from ashes, gives us the power or grace to come out stronger, and works things together for good for those who love Him. 
Find us grateful Lord. Find us lost in your grace. πŸ’•
Let me know just about how long it takes you to find my husband in this pic! It's a mystery πŸ˜†
A few of his most recent statements...
"Momma, did you eat a magic bean to make you grow so big?"
"My tummy is not having a party...I need pizza."
"I love you all the way to the coffee shop" (5 mins away πŸ˜†) Total mommas boy and daddy's mini. Love this little guy. πŸ’•
