friday favorites : keeping it real

do you really want to know my favorites?

this man.

and this man with these kids.

everything else in this world will wilt away and never be seen again.
my husband and children are children of God the Father.
and they will be who i see in heaven one day.

living my life for the Lord means i must keep 
other 'stuff' in perspective.  

yes, decorating and new houses and clothes
are enjoyable.  no doubt.

BUT ....would i walk away from it without turning back?

yes. yes. and yes.

thank you LORD for my husband and my children.
my heart is full of Your joy!

  9. I have been through your blog quite a bit sicne discovering a few weeks ago when I searched for bunk rooms.

    I can't believe how much alike we are! It's kind of weird. I have five children who I homeschool in our Christian home, too.

    Anyway, I will keep reading. And I would really love to see the finished boys bunk room???When we add on, I would like to design around this idea for my four boys room.
