His Strength Keeps Me Going




I want to be real here, I'm just as human as the rest of us.  I have shortcomings, fears and weaknesses.  I have a hard time expressing myself in person but writing out my thoughts is much easier for me.  That's why I love to write, but fear can sometimes get the best of me even in writing.  But, I am real.


I'm just a learning wife and momma to 2 boys.  I don't have much skill or experience in being wife and momma but I love my man and my boys with everything in me, I try my best to care for them!


Everyday I spend hours caring and cleaning.  
My laundry is always getting behind and my dishes end up getting piled up too often.  


Dinner isn't always on time and sometimes it's just a fast meal made. : )

I'm always working on refining my schedule to make it more helpful for our family as things change so much with growing children.  First a newborn needs to be held and nursed often then they begin to roll, then crawl and then walk.


Some days I don't even touch my computer until nap time comes around and even sometimes that only lasts 15 minutes.


I'm just like you, in the early stages of Motherhood with little ones all around me. Barely keeping up with housekeeping but loving it.

You know how I make it through everyday?  The Lord grants me grace and strength when I'm weak and tired.  His loving arms carry me through this journey and looking to Him keeps my heart uplifted!

I want you to know that I am real.


P.S. - Sorry for how quiet it has been around here lately.  I had all sorts of plans but then I was struggling with managing my time well and then sickness hit our little family.  We seem to be at the end of it and hopefully life will resume it's normal self again (if there's such a thing as normal...).

I can relate to all of the above! Thank you for your honesty. The written word can be such an encouragement to others, a point of connection, and a healing balm within. Your post is all of that!

Your post is quite interesting - beautiful photos and just a walk through your the thoughts you shared. Meaningful. Peaceful. Very nice. Writing is a much easier way to convey thoughts sometimes. It's easier for me if I know no one will be reading them though! ;)

Coming your way via Sarah's Homemaking Link-Up.
Enjoyed my visit. Thanks, Jenn
