What is Most Important to You?

Over the past week, I have only been to school one day. We had several snow days, and I was at home with a sick baby for a couple days. It is really neat how God's timing is always perfect! He knows exactly what we need just when we need it! Instead of taking sick days, I was able to use the snow days as time to stay home with my sick baby and love on her while she was getting better! :)

While I was off from school, I had a lot more extra time than I would normally have during a 'work week'. I spent some precious moments with Lucy Jane that I don't normally get during the week. We had several pajama days, shared breakfast, naps, and lots of play time! She is always smiling and that makes my heart super happy! I am so thankful for a happy baby!

Over the break I learned how often we get caught up in the 'busyness' of our lives and do not take the time to appreciate the things that really matter! I have made a committment to not get so caught up in the stresses and struggles of daily living and focus more on my family and making an eternal impact.

"Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes." James 4:14

Life is over so quickly. We need to cherish each day that God gives us and let him know that we are thankful for his many blessings.

"I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds." Psalm 9:1


  1. So true!!! I have def learned that a lot lately Kinley has just grown up in the blink of an eye so now if the house is a little messy I'm not going to let it bother me(which is hard for me) & just spend more with my sweet family!

  2. You are such a great momma, Ashley!
