As I choose to focus on God's goodness and his love gifts to me, I find my faith in Him growing. I am learning to trust him in all things, not just the things that seem out of my control. I was reading John 6 in the Amplified version, and it describes belief as this: adheres to; trusts in; relies on; has faith in me. It's active, present tense, being practiced moment by moment. My God is Truth and I can Trust him always. Forever.
Oh how the days have been flying by! I've been busy being outside when it's nice, like the day I took this peach blossom in our friends' orchards. Our arms got some color, and we even wore short sleeves! The girls biked 2.5 miles and I jogged with Maverick. It was a glorious afternoon! Our weekend was filled with yardsaling for me and Mav and a soccer game for the girls and Tim. Of course, I missed our only win so far, and Hannah scored her first 3 goals!! We also got together with Tim's family and I got to meet new baby Chloe! Such a precious baby girl
