freedom.




God's timing is so beautiful. He always finds little ways to show me He hears my cry. 

My sweet friend Casi (cupcake mag)  posted this photo here and immediately my eyes welled up. Lately I have been feeling anything but free. I have been trying so hard to make things happen on my own. Things within my family and things within myself. I know I have been searching for something more, and seeing this today has completely reminded me that I need to find rest in Him. That I can't do it all, and I don't need to. I have been trying to map out where my future is headed, but this little piece of hope came as a reminder - that He is on my side paving the way and defending me. He knows where my dreams will take me, but each path is a stepping stone - a place to learn before we are equipped to handle what is next. Each struggle we face only strengthens us for the next battle. I am so thankful that I can rest in the shadows of His wings, and prepare my heart for what is next. I want my heart to be open and willing to go where He leads. I need only be still.

What a wonderful truth. It's especially necessary to remember as a mommy when you're juggling dreams and trying to raise little dreamers at the same time. :) I can so identify.

And those pictures are lovely.

Hannah,
Perfectly put! You're so right, and I am working hard to remember that for myself constantly! I think moms need to follow their heart, but so many times we are busy making sure everyone else is chasing their dreams first!
