The Sweet Things In Life

Happy New Year everybody ๐Ÿ™‚

American pancakes are absolutely delish. I can’t have too many of them though, because bloating is real and wheat cushions my waist line ๐Ÿ™‚ I enjoy oat and banana pancakes as well, but I’m on my own, the rest of the K squad like crepes.

When I made American pancakes to end the year, I had to convince Ksena to eat them by drizzling some honey on them. Since Miss Ky came, I’m on the clock most times. I’ve had to learn how to multitask and work faster, because as Ksena says, ‘mama has two totos’. And I need to meet their needs. So on this day, both girls wanted their breakfast stat but I couldn’t find the honey. After walking in circles, I decided to step out of the kitchen and look in from the outside. I found it immediately and was able to serve Ksena and feed Kyria. There was world peace in the K household.

It got me thinking as I was breastfeeding, it’s the same thing with life, sometimes it’s important to look in from the outside and see just how blessed you are. If you are intentional, you realize the sweet things are right in front of you.

Here’s my ‘sweet things’ jar for 2017.

I’m looking forward to keeping a record of the sweet moments and being thankful daily.

If you’d like to join me on this sweet journey of thanksgiving, you can make a sweet things jar by using a tin/container and wrapping paper to cover it.ย 

Have a blessed new year filled with joy, peace and good health.

Here’s to many adventures in Him and with Him.

2016: Tried and Tested. Yet I Still Believe

The last couple of days have disoriented me. I’ve been too tired to cry. 2016 has been a roller coaster with really good days and some really sad, dark ones too. It’s had it’s share of trials and tests and I’ve had to keep reminding myself that this is not new.

This December I read the Christmas story using the Advent reading plan; it was a beautiful time of reading. This verse really stood out for me.

peace

Some versions say, “He will be the source of our peace.” During the last couple of days, this verse has resonated with me. Life has made me feel anxious, antsy, angry, agitated. But I’ve been reminded to keep my focus on Jesus for He is the source of my peace.

A few days ago, as I put Kyria to bed, I heard the Holy Spirit ask me, ‘Do you believe?’. I said, “I believe, help my unbelief. The truth is even in the midst of the darkness, I still believe, though doubt sometimes floods my heart; I know in the depths of my heart that He is for me.

This song came to mind and it has been my declaration since.

I don’t need to see the bigger picture to believe what God says. By faith I can speak and see a thing.

I’m going into 2017 , not limited by what I’ve seen in 2016 but believing that His word is true, that there is so much that I can do. I’m believing that because He said it in His word, it settles it in the earth.

Through the trials and tests, I still believe that He is for me and I am safe in His arms. So I have chosen to give up my pride and turn away from arrogance. I’m not concerned with great matters or subjects too difficult for me. I have stilled and quieted myself in His embrace, just as a child; just as my sweet Ky is still in her mother’s arms.
