dearpomegranates The last Summer evening with my person before he goes back to work. Happily enjoying a grown up float of vanilla ice cream and @highwaterbrewing's Campfire (s'mores) Stout. Delicious. Like seriously. 5h

dearpomegranates Mid week morning. The boys and I are staying in, hopefully to recuperate some and work a little more with Finn and potty training. Nice to have an extra treat of a cold brew with hazelnut almond milk creamer today. Mmmm....now to watch live streaming of Nat's game on @periscope_tv. 5d

dearpomegranates It's been awhile since it has been just the little one and I and I can't seem to tear myself away from his hold. Who cares about messy beds and floors covered in laundry and toys. I'm taking advantage and soaking it in. He won't be little like this ever again. 6d

dearpomegranates “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:11-12‬ ‭ESV‬‬ // Our neighbor stopped by to share some of his figs from his tree. Such a small act of giving that always brings a smile and feelings of thankfulness. How many times am I given 'fruit' to share with others but instead keep it for myself? Or only freely give to those people and moments that are easy to give to? How many times do I not serve out of contempt and therefore my heart is thankless? I want to meditate more on this word. Let it root in my heart and blossom with understanding to bear fruit in my spirit and my life. I want to be a generous giver of who I am in Him. And I know with that, my heart will yield more thanksgiving and less grumbling. And perhaps not just my heart but others as well. #thebreadandrepose

dearpomegranates A few days ago I found myself seeking a minute or two of detachment from an ugly family moment. Desperately seeking an answer to solve our problem of not being a loving, patient and gentle family I realized I would not find it within myself. Nor would there be a quick and instant solve-all solution. And suddenly two things came into my heart. One, that I have not faithfully and practically hidden His word in my heart enough to draw from the wealth of comfort, encouragement and instruction for times like these. And two, I have not sought sufficient rest in Him so as to allow to be strengthened, restored and readily able to handle situations that can wear me down quickly. I tried to deny it but couldn't. I need His word and I need sabbaths. Since that day He has continued to pursue this with me. The other day @tweetpotatopie shared a friend to follow, @terricajoy and specifically mentioned her hashtag #thenecessityofrest. Today my friend @hebba112 shared on FB an article titled "Too Busy" for God's word (truewoman.com). Both these things addressed, providentially, what I need in my life. I need His word for edification and for restoration. I need to treat His word as an essential to living just like air, water and food. I also need to cut away from the busyness to allow for rest so that my mind and body remain healthy. I want to seek His word that will build up and also seek ways to rest in Him. I love the community of IG and if anyone would like to join me, please do using #thebreadandrepose. I hope to be encouraged and replenished by His truth, by His promises and by His restoration. 2w

dearpomegranates Day three of potty training. Thankful for summer being mild thus far, my husband being home to help, for support (and I like his company too️) and for just getting things done. This time is not easy but I'm searching for silver linings and I know they are beaming at me from all directions. // #widn as tagged by the lovely @threehazels. How about a share @farmamasara @milesmama @sugarhouseworkshop 2w

dearpomegranates Oh four months. Wes, you roll over, laugh, and try to crawl. You enjoy snuggles with your sister and put up with wrestling from your brother. You like chewing on mama's hair, taking naps during sister's softball games and being hugely alert (and flirty) when all the girls come to play with you afterward. You beat daddy at stare downs and like a good diaper change. Oh my baby. It's all going by too fast but wonderfully still. #westleyandmonroe 2w

dearpomegranates I'm a little lost for words but this weekend has been nothing less than one of the best we've had. We had our first family softball 'vacation' in Lancaster to compete in the States Tournament B Division. Yesterday was Championship Sunday and we had to battle back after a loss to become the 10u State Champions! Wow. What an amazing season with an amazing group of girls, coaches, parents and families. A time we will always remember. Congrats LM 10u Gold!! 3w

dearpomegranates Searching through an old blog of mine to share a post with a friend and stumbled upon this illustration. Five years ago, an online friend changed her art business name and immediately this came to mind. Right now I have a few images in my head that I must get out and draw soon. I think i just get overwhelmed by life, by situations, by things that weigh heavily on me. Then I see something like this. I yearn for so much right now. For big things to happen. I'm yearning for the mountains, both literally and figuratively. I pray they come soon. 4w

dearpomegranates Gloomy summer mornings are a favorite. Especially when I just get to hang out with my children and make cold brew coffee for my man and I later. It's the little things that brighten my day, really. 4w
