The weeks really are flying by. I can't believe it, but it's Saturday again. I survived the week, which was really a challenging one! Ha. But Saturday it is. And that means it's time to send it to God. Please post your prayer requests in the comments section of this post throughout the week and I'll pray for you all as I read through them. I try to come back several times in the week and pray through them again.
This week my prayer request is for me. I'm really do feel as though I am surrounded by spiritual warfare. I'm trying desperately to do the best I can for the Lord, to give myself over to him and allow him to change me, but it just feels as though the harder I try, the more the enemy attacks. It makes sense really, but it isn't easy. So I guess I'm asking for prayers for strength and perseverance, that I'll keep trying. That I won't give in. That I'll allow God to cause a change in my heart, and in my life.
I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a photographer. I'm a lover of Jesus. My house is a mess, my kids are dirty, we eat take out more often than not. My life is loud, busy and crazy. And that's okay with me.
This is Eric, the man you've been praying for. He's a paramedic. He quilts in his spare time. No, I couldn't make that up :) He has NASH (a form of liver disease, non-alcoholic) and diabetes, but those things don't define him. He's a man of God, an insanely wonderful husband, and the best daddy in the world.. Just ask these guys..
Our daughter Ali, she's 9. She's fiercely opinionated and strong willed. She's a Daddy's girl, but the umbilical cord hasn't but cut from me, either. She's a gymnast, and proud of it. She spends more time upside down or turning flips than she does walking. She's crazy smart, and absolutely sure of it. She is my insufferable little know it all.
Our son Dylan, 7. We lovingly refer to him as Chubs. Or Chubby. Or fat boy. Ahem. He is all boy, as you can see by his crazy wild energy. He has the highest pain tolerance of any child I have ever met. He plays soccer and does gymnastics, but truly he is a gamer, a nerd. He is an avid reader and loves to climb. Not to be outdone by his sister, he's a drama king, but to him, I'm the best mommy in the world.
I'm here to use my voice. So many people can't. In a world of darkness, I just want to help God's light to shine through. I pray that my words are His, and my love is His, as well. This is my journey through the darkness. To start are the beginning of the story, click here.
