Lots has been going on in the Bennett house over the past couple of months and I really want to blog about it all soon.
The Bennetts have had ---
-Lots of dress-up (obviously)
-A precious little girl turn 4 and a fun party to go along with her special day
-Trips to the Pumpkin Patch
-A cute 21 month old who now knows how to count to 10, sing her ABC's (and many more songs) and who is getting in 2 more teeth as we speak!
-Tailgating in Auburn
-Keeping busy with trips to the grandparents' house/beach/a handful of weddings
-A surgery and some yucky stiches
This season is a busy one. Full of things to do, places to go, people to see and decisions to be made. Luckily, God has been growing us and guiding us all the while. Since this post is lacking in pictures, I'll leave you with some encouragement that I received this morning from my Jesus Calling devotional. I had to laugh when it talked about climbing up a cliff, because I literally have had the image of God leading our family to a cliff lately. The only difference is that it's us jumping off it (trust me - I mean the cliff jumping in the most non-morbid way possible) instead of climbing up it!! Which, of course, is why we put it all in His hands...it's why we wait on the Lord and trust in His plan!
From Jesus Calling, November 19:
Leave outcome to Me. Follow Me wherever I lead, without worrying about how it will all turn out.
Think of your life as an adventure, with Me as your guide and companion. Live in the now, concentrating on staying with Me.
When our path leads to a cliff, be willing to climb it with My help. When we come to a resting place, take time to be refreshed in My presence.
Enjoy the rhythm of the life close to Me. You already know the ultimate destination of your journey: your entrance into heaven. So keep your focus on the path just before you, Leaving outcomes up to Me.
Psalm 27:13-14; Exodus 15
