chateaualamode To fulfill God's perfect design for me requires my total surrender -- complete abandonment of myself to Him.
This is what I learned today in my quiet time. God keeps reminding me that I need to give ALL of myself to him. I'm trying ;)

chateaualamode These beauties are just getting major haircuts this morning but I hear the chainsaw cutting down one of our beautiful trees in the front yard because it's dying and could fall on our neighbors house but I'm so sad that it's going I think I light cry :( 2w

chateaualamode So I turned 53 the other day and I feel great about that because I'm the best I've ever been. I used to live so much of my life scared but now I'm learning to be brave. Brave enough to follow my dreams. Brave enough to listen to what God nudges me to do for Him. Brave enough to take on what comes my way. I don't have to be scared anymore and can live freely because maybe, just maybe I was born for such a time as this, and finally I get it. 2w

chateaualamode We had all sorts of people at our house last night. All the kids had friends over for the 4th. This is my Ashleigh. She had some girlfriends over and was quite the hostess. She decorated the table and served appetizers and drinks. So proud of her hospitality skills ;) 3w

chateaualamode Remember that one night when mom was toasting her marshmallow for her s'more and tripped over her own feet and landed on top of the BBQ (it wasn't hot). She was bruised and bleeding but laughed so hard she almost peed her pants!!!? PS You might need to know that I made my s'more with Ghirardelli Dark and Sea Salt Carmel....and it was so good ;) 3w

chateaualamode I love this room in our home. There have been lots of loved ones gathered at this table. Lots and lots of laughter, some tears and maybe even a few secrets have been shared here. Celebrations, holidays and good old fashioned family dinners. Here's to many more memories made in this room. 4w
  •   shancarbajal When we bought our house I splurged on our dining room set because I knew it would be something we enjoyed forever for all of the reasons you just mentioned!! 4w
  •   chateaualamode @shancarbajal great minds think alike xo 4w
