New Things

There is a ton of "new" happening around here.

I am very excited about all of it and just trying to put one foot in front of the other as I get it all going. Trusting God to order my steps.

New things can be a bit nerve wracking for this girl who orders the same thing every time we go out to eat.The girl who likes a plan...To see the end result and the big picture. But you know what? I'm ok with not knowing all of that. In fact, it's exciting. Because I know it's all God.

So I'm just taking the steps.
One by one.

Soon, you'll know what I'm talking about. And then you can feel overwhelmed {in a good way} with all of the "new" right along with me.

What I am MOST excited about is my next project for the "Speak Louder Project". It is something very near and dear to my heart and I just know God is all over it.
I can. not. wait. to share it with you!

Some one else is working on a little something, something new as well.
Little miss thing has decided to try and sit up on her own. I wondered if this would ever happen because since the day she was born she would much rather stand than sit. She stiffens and straightens up those chunky little legs every time you try to sit her down. Little stinker.
But lately she's started to show signs of wanting to try, so we've been working on it. So long as she's got an eye on a prize, she'll go with it.
In this case, it was the bunnies on her feet.
"What the? Why are bunnies are my feet mom?!"

I love being a mom. I love watching my kids learn new things and expand their abilities.
To see them grow, learn and stretch.

I imagine it's just how God feels as He watches us step out, try new things...
stretch ourselves and grow.
Isaiah 42:9
"Behold, the former things have come to pass,
And new things I declare;
Before they spring forth I tell you of them.
