Praising Him in her sleep 🙌🏾💗
This week I've watched @shepherdchurch revival from home with my family. Today I got off of work right as the service started and working from home immediately began watching it live. I longed to go, my 1st time visiting Shepherd was after my bestest convinced me to join her for revival; but was excited and thankful for my mom who picked up her oldest grandbaby and stood in line for over an hour to ensure they were ready to get their praise and worship on as soon as service started🙌🏾💕 The two of them called me on the way back talking about the incredible Word. I *know*! Loved it. It was just what they needed and just what I needed too. The night before I was reminded that I haven't been forgotten and now THIS.

Also, the book-- my amazing mother went back to church to stand in line and get it, the book that is only available preorder and I'm not sure I could wait that long (Oct 31st) -- a signed copy. And as someone who used to blog my heart out and share my story I've struggled with where it is now, sometimes unable to see that it hasn't ended here, struggling to "turn the page." Forgetting that many of the things -- blessings I have now I once prayed for. I needed to hear tonight's word. My mama needed to hear tonight's word. My daughter needed to hear tonight's word and I'm so grateful to my mother for going back, me finding out because I called to see if she made it home yet. I'm thankful for Pastor @carllentz for signing it (and reminding me that I am awesome because I had forgotten) and inviting my mom to take a picture (she's totally about to cry, happy thankful tears and didn't want me to post it but I love it because it is a reflection of the beautiful selfless heart that she has and she was blessed through her decision to bless me) and thankful for Pastor @dudleyrutherford for taking the 📷 (and selfies) and listening to my mom (one of the last few in line) share and especially for having the heart that he has. I've learned and been blessed more in these past few days and am thankful that, for my family, Shepherd has become not just the church we go to but home. It's a gift and a blessing when even in a BIG church people feel seen, known, valued❤️

A phone + a request for sister selfies on her birthday🎉Celebrated 13 yesterday -- the day this beautiful being was born and lit up one of the darkest seasons of my life. Jalayla you are my shining star, my North Star. I remember being so lost and baby girl, you helped me find my way home. Home was you. And us and as you've grown so have I. I'm so proud to be your mama. I'm proud of who you are and who you're becoming. You're courageous and kind. You're compassionate and funny. You're probably the reason I've got that one gray hair. And you're a daily reminder of God's love for me -- He handpicked ME to be your mom! ME!!! Trusting God's plan for your beautiful and precious life. Happy (belated) birthday. Welcome to the teen years. We can do this -- together. We already are 🙌🏾❤️✨

Signed up to pray for the speakers and the church in the weeks leading up to revival👧🏾🙏🏾❤️
My oldest has spent the past two days asking me if I'm scared because she is. Last night and this morning she asked me where our emergency kit was. Each time I listen to the news my heart breaks and/or I feel disgusted. I'm grieving. This can't be the world my children are growing up in. This can't be the gift our children are inheriting. I know my God is sovereign so I'm holding on to that and my people. I'm doing my best to raise kind humans that aren't afraid to use their voice (and hands) for good; I'm also showing them what the looks like. And I'm delighting in moments like this -- where our timing is off but our hearts (and bellies) are full -- the sweet and simple joys that we so easily take for granted... ❤️

Yesterday my littlest love turned 5 -- Happy birthday Lola Grace! Last night was more magical than anything Pinterest worthy I set out to do long before our move. Time and time again, you remind me that the magic isn't in the details it's in the people. Once upon a time I loved creating and crafting but I've found myself in a season of wanting to create and do less and savor and just be more. You've inspired me to focus more on doing my best at fewer things; things resulting in joy, gratitude and a collection of cherished memories. While I still can appreciate the details and love seeing what people create I'm grateful for what we are creating as a family. I'm grateful for the freedom I've found in being your mama. Freedom from the should've and would've and used to. Freedom to slow down. Freedom to say no and yes. To take a break from something and start again or not...To make a mistake and drop the ball and worry that I've absolutely ruined you guys only to remember that HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT and His strength is made perfect in my weakness and my children are going to be just fine. And while at times I still struggle I'm hoping that you'll remember that each time I fell I got back up, that I never stopped trying. I pray that you give yourself permission to do the very things you unknowingly me permission to do when I gave birth to you 5 years ago. You may not always remember the details but I pray you'll remember the feelings, the memories, the magic (the people). I'm thankful for the sparkle you add to each day my sweet firecracker. I'm thankful for another year as your mommy🎉🎂💗✨💥

Brought back an old tradition in the making. Jalayla started school before we moved in and asked me to make it especially for Lola since she's had a 1st day of school surprise before prior to us moving to an apartment. I still wrote her a little note too but thought it was so sweet that she wanted to make sure I remembered to break out to sidewalk chalk for her little sister 👧🏾💕👧🏾
