All Sam wants to do is stand! He is constantly pulling himself up and cruising along furniture. Annyyyyy day now I know he’s going to start walking, and then. AND THEN! Watch out, world. ;)
My cousin is in town for spring break, so we had dinner on Saturday night. Family time is the best time.
We made our way to church on Sunday, and it was such a good service. You know those times when God just speaks right to you? I had one of those moments in church this weekend. It was refreshing and emotional and He was speaking right to my heart. And we sang a song I’d never heard before that had me in tears, Come As You Are (no not the Nirvana song haha) and it was just so beautiful. It’s my new favorite worship song, for sure.
Earth has no sorrow that heaven can’t cure…
Lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
I feel like that is God’s biggest message to us. He wants us exactly as we are. He doesn’t ask us to be perfect- in fact, He knows we cannot be. He wants us, dirty, sinful, broken, as we are. We are enough. We cannot win our way to heaven by being “good” people. We can’t win our way into heaven by acts. We can’t win our way to heaven, period. Because Jesus has already done that for us. And what a beautiful thing.
Happy Monday, friends.
Hallie has been doing that forever! I keep thinking, holy cow any day!! But so far nothing! Not that I mind, I’ll keep her a baby as long as she’ll let me! Sam is just too cute! I think we need to talk these kiddos into slowing down a little!
I agree! It’s exciting that they’re growing and learning new things, but then it’s like… AHHHHH slow down!
This was wonderful to read this morning. I admit I originally thought the title was in reference to Nirvana, but this was much, much better. Glad you had a great weekend!
Aww I’m so glad you enjoyed! :)
He is so precious! And such a big boy! I have an 11 week old and I know she’ll be standing before I know it and can’t imagine!
Walking soon!? So crazy. My heart stops all the time when my little man insists on pulling up. Hopefully, I get used to it soon! Glad you had an awesome weekend. You look great.
I like this post a lot! I had a similar feeling in church this weekend, so it really stood out to me. I have been having a sort of rough time since my fiancé and I moved across the country, and I’m having trouble finding a sense of purpose in a new place with a new life. I went into church feeling like I was going out of obligation this week, I was in a bad mood, and just cranky. But after listening to the sermon, it almost felt like it was written just for me, if that makes any sense, haha. It spoke right to my soul, and even said something similar that I had said while praying earlier in the weekend… Needless to say, I left church in a completely different mood and with a different outlook! I love when this happens to others and myself! :)
Thanks for sharing this today Katie! Needed it!
And Sam is so sweet!
