Waking up to these crisp mornings makes me want to grab a book and head to Starbucks for a leisurely morning of reading and enjoying a latte. Unfortunately, that’s not what my Fall mornings look like very often. So, this morning, I made some homemade coffee cake. It wasn’t exactly the same, but it did the trick. It is definitely one of my favorite Fall morning comfort foods. And…I got to share it with Mr. Ayden…which always makes the experience more fun! It’s the little things to start off the day together that make me smile.


a thankful heart.

I so desire for the Lord to create in me a truly thankful heart. How incredibly selfish to take His goodness for granted. This past weekend, I have been literally overwhelmed by His grace and His blessing in my life. I am so thankful to Him. His love for me is perfect and I cannot even begin to know its depth. He has given me an incredible husband and three beautiful, healthy babies. He has given me an outstanding community of believers to surround me and to show me another dimension of His character. He has blessed me with a wonderful family, and in-laws who have truly accepted me as their daughter, granddaughter, and sister. I could continue on like this for volumes. The more I behold His cross and His redemption of my soul in Christ, the more that thankful heart grows in me, humbling me, and giving me an eternal perspective with which to view all of the trivial hiccups in my life. It’s all for Him and it’s all about Him. Thank you, Lord. Give me the grace to live with this attitude each moment…even when things are hard and I don’t understand.
