Every morning I try to set aside time to read my Bible and write in my journal. My first order of business is thanking God.
Life has been so beautifully full lately. I keep thinking I’ll have more, please, if that is your will, God.
Life isn’t always easy, but it is incredibly blessed. The hard days are blessings in their own special way. The good days are absolutely amazing, and I want to soak it all in.
I’ll take more sunrises. More mornings eating breakfast outside. More evenings weeding the garden. More walks with Lola.
I’ll take more time with my sister. More acro yoga. More laughing. More watching her grow up into the amazing woman God made her to be. (P.S. Hannah started a blog!)
I’ll take more celebrations. More birthday parties. More get-togethers. More date nights. More time meeting new people. I went to my friend Kim’s house for her daughter Annabelle’s first birthday party and it was such a beautiful celebration. I can’t believe sweet Annabelle Grace is a year old!
I’ll take more renovations. More time making our house a home. More happy exhaustion from hard work. More trips to hardware stores to wander around aimlessly.
I’ll take more of Pittsburgh. More baseball games. More exploring the city. More new restaurants. More adventures.
I’ll also take more time spent with God. More journaling and Bible studying. More writing. More Pinterest browsing. More time spent reading and listening to podcasts. More traveling. More smiles. More coffee. More photography. More sleeping in. More staying up late. More drawing and painting. More deep conversations.
Thank you, God. If it’s your will, I’ll take more, please 🙂
